Former Employees: Herman Cain Regular on Bar Scene

Former employees tell ABC News that Cain was a regular on Washington's after-work bar scene, often with young women who worked with him at the National Restaurant Association, where he was president and CEO from 1996 to 1999.

Though some defenders say it was just Cain being personable and gregarious, Thursday the presidential candidate was pressed about new accounts that he asked one young female employee to return to his corporate apartment with him.

Cain told Fox News host Sean Hannity, "That is absolute fabrication, man," and said he had an apartment "near the airport because I traveled so much." Cain's wife Gloria had continued to live in Omaha after he took the job at the NRA, according to reports, and he often flew home to see her.

Cain told Hannity he never even made flattering remarks to an accuser he had allegedly asked to accompany him to his apartment.

"I didn't make those kind of compliments," said Cain. "I didn't say that she was hot, or that sort of thing. ... I know I didn't do that kind of stuff."

As ABC News has reported, two of the women who received settlements from the Restaurant Association are well known in government circles.

The woman who wants to make a statement is in her fifties now, married, and a spokesperson for a federal agency in Washington.

The other, now in her forties, is single and registered as a lobbyist in New Jersey.
