Sharon Bialek speaks during a news conference to accuse Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain of sexual harassment on Nov. 7, 2011, in New York City. She stated she is speaking out because she wanted to give "a face and a voice" to support the other accusers who have remained anonymous.

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain will hold a news conference Tuesday to respond to the latest sexual harassment allegations leveled against him Monday. A fourth woman, Sharon Bialek, appeared on Good Morning America with Gloria Allred Tuesday morning, repeating her claims that Cain sexually harassed her. Meanwhile, Cain remains the Republican front runner in most polls.

Writer T.A. Frank writes about Cain's mysterious staying power in an upcoming article in the New York Times Magazine.
