Herman Cain told "Jimmy Kimmel Live" host Jimmy Kimmel last night that though he was surprised by new sexual harassment claims from "Woman Number Four," he'll hold a press conference today to address the topic.
In a sometimes jokey, sometimes serious chat, Kimmel made fun of Godfather's Pizza (Cain is the company's former president) and asked Cain whether he'd consider hiring Gloria Allred, the attorney who's representing Sharon Bialek, the fourth woman to publicly accuse Cain of sexual harassment.
"You almost made me say something that my handler says you should not say," Cain said. "Let me put it to you this way: I can't think of anything that I would hire her to do … I can't think of a thing!"
Cain's press conference, from Scottsdale, is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. ET today.
"There's not an ounce of truth in all of these accusations, and my team is putting this stuff together," Cain told Kimmel. "That is why I'm willing to do a press conference … to set the record straight."
In the meantime, check out the video clip of Cain's visit to Kimmel's show and his habit of referring to himself in the third person ("Here's one thing people don't know about Herman Cain … I'm in it to win it"):
