Today Victor Zuckerman, a Louisiana pediatrician who was Sharon Bialek’s boyfriend at the time she alleges Herman Cain sexually harassed her, held a press conference with Gloria Allred to discuss his recollection of what Bialeck had told him at the time. Zuckerman also detailed his own interaction with Cain when Bialek was also present. From the Associated Press

“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.

Cain was chief executive of the Washington trade group at the time. …

Zuckerman said Bialek told him that Cain inappropriately touched her later that year when she met him in Washington to seek employment help after being fired from the association. …

Zuckerman did not, however, witness the alleged sexual advances. He could only confirm that they and Cain had met.
