SHREVEPORT, La. — A pediatrician who is a former boyfriend of a woman who accused Republican presidential contender Herman Cain of inappropriate sexual behavior said Monday that he and this then-girlfriend met the businessman in the late 1990s.

Victor Jay Zuckerman's account of an evening when he says he, Sharon Bialek, and Cain spent together in 1997 directly contradicts the candidate's assertions that he had never met his accuser or heard her name.

“At that party, Mr. Cain engaged both of us in conversation," Zuckerman said at a news conference, describing an after party Cain had invited them to in a hotel suite after a National Restaurant Association event in Chicago.

Attorney Gloria Allred, who represents Bialek, appeared at his side and called on Cain to acknowledge he had met his accuser, one of at least four who have alleged that Cain sexually harassed or made unwanted advances toward them.

Zuckerman also said Bialek told him that Cain inappropriately touched her later that year when she sought help finding a job after being fired from the trade association that Cain led at the time.
