WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain says he was "falsely accused" of sexual harassment while he led the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s.

Cain on Monday was responding to a Politico report that said the trade group settled complaints from at least two women that Cain with whom Cain had allegedly engaged in inappropriate sexual behavior.

Cain told Fox News he has never sexually harassed anyone and that he was "falsely accused." He said investigations into any complaints found that they were "baseless."

But he also said he had no idea whether the trade association provided financial settlements to the women who complained. In a written statement, the National Restaurant Association refused to comment on a personnel matter.
