Mark Block, Cain's Campaign Chief of Staff, accused Rick Perry's campaign of leaking the story of the 12-year-old sexual harassment claims made while Cain was head of the National Restaurant Association.
Block made this assertion during an interview on Fox News' "Special Report". He called the action taken by Perry's campaign "despicable". He further stated that Perry and his campaign owes Cain and his family an apology.
The Cain campaign suggests the source for that story was longtime GOP consultant Curt Anderson, who worked for Cain's failed 2004 U.S. Senate bid and had been debriefed on the harassment allegations by Cain himself. Anderson now works for Perry.
And Chris Wilson, a former pollster for the restaurant association, said Wednesday he witnessed Cain's alleged inappropriate behavior. He's now involved with a pro-Perry super political action committee.
