Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain responded to the latest accusation of sexual harassment, leveled by former employee Sharon Bialek, saying that he can't remember even meeting her.

In an interview with ABC News' Jonathan Karl Tuesday, Cain repeated his denial of any wrongdoing and said he had no recollection of knowing his accuser.

"I don't even know who this lady is," Cain said of Bialek, who on Monday claimed that in 1997, Cain made a sexual pass at her when he was president of the National Restaurant Association.

"I am honestly telling you, I don't even recall knowing her at that time," Cain said. "I have not acted inappropriately with this woman or any woman in my entire career."

Bialek is the fourth woman to say that Cain sexual harassed her, but the first to do so publicly.

Cain has planned a press conference in Scottsdale, Ariz. Tuesday afternoon to address the allegations.
