Yet another man has lobbed allegations of sexual harassment against John Travolta. Fabian Zanzi, a cruise worker from Chile, claims the actor sexually propositioned him during a Royal Caribbean voyage in 2009.

Cain's wife: Sex harassment claims don't ring true

The more forcefully Herman Cain fights to save his presidential campaign, the more events spiral out of the candidate's control. After days in which he refused to discuss sexual harassment accusations against him, Cain reversed himself and starred in a nationally televised news conference at which he cast one of his accusers as "a troubled woman" and said he had "never acted inappropriately with anyone, period."

Senh: Looks like these allegations are finally taking a toll on Herman Cain the polls.

Leaving little to the imagination, a Chicago-area woman on Monday accused Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain of making a crude sexual advance more than a decade ago when she was seeking his help finding a job. "Come clean," Sharon Bialek challenged Cain at a news conference in New York at which she described herself as "a face and a voice" to support other accusers who have so far remained anonymous.

Senh: Now that Gloria Allred's involved, this is officially getting into Jerry Springer territory. It's also entering Tiger Woods territory too. This is the 4th alleged victim that Herman Cain has sexually harassed.


Racial politics return with Cain allegations

Herman Cain's rise as a presidential contender was supposed to prove that race didn't matter in the Republican Party. Cain is fast making it the only thing that does. The black conservative is trying to navigate around allegations that he sexually harassed at least three women, implying that the accusations surfaced because he is black. Hours after the claims were reported, Cain's supporters branded his trouble a "high-tech lynching." That's the term coined 20 years ago by another black conservative, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, after his confirmation hearings for the court were rocked by allegations of sexual harassment.
