A fourth woman is expected to come forward Monday with claims that Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain sexually harassed her, the Washington Post reports.

The woman's lawyer, Gloria Allred, will hold a news conference with the woman in New York at 12:30 p.m. on Monday, USA Today reported.

Allred put out a statement claiming that the woman knew Cain when he was the head of the National Restaurant Association in the late 1990s. She allegedly sought his help regarding an employment issue.

In the past week, reports have surfaced of three other women accusing Cain of sexually harassing them when he was the head of the association.

Cain has denied the accusations and spent the weekend attempting to move past the claims and refocus his campaign according to his agenda.

"We’re getting back on message, end of story,” Cain said to reporters Saturday night, as reported by The New York Times.

When reporters tried to question him after a debate with Newt Gingrich, Cain said: “Don’t even go there."
