WASHINGTON — Herman Cain's wife says the claims of sex harassment against the GOP presidential candidate don't ring true because he "totally respects women."
Gloria Cain said to Fox News' Greta Van Susteren: "I'm thinking he would have to have a split personality to do the things that were said."

Mrs. Cain said she can't believe the claims that her husband harassed women when he led the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s.
"You hear the graphic allegations and we know that would have been something that's totally disrespectful of her as a woman," she said. "And I know the type of person he is. He totally respects women."
Excerpts of Mrs. Cain's comments were released Sunday, a day before the full interview was to be aired during the Van Susteren's "On the Record" Monday night.
