BUCKHEAD: Cain cancels appearance amid harassment allegations

ATLANTA -- Presidential candidate Herman Cain says he never changed his story about sexual harassment allegations against him in the 1990s.

In a Tuesday interview, Cain told Headline News that he didn't contradict himself when he said a day earlier that he was unaware of a settlement between a woman and his former employer, the National Restaurant Association, over allegations against Cain. He said he was aware of an agreement, but not a settlement.

Cain said, "So it looked like I had changed my story. I didn't change my story."

In a series of appearances Monday, Cain first insisted he was unaware of any financial arrangements between the trade association and his accuser. In an interview with PBS NewsHour later that night, Cain acknowledged he was aware of an "agreement" but not of a settlement.

Cain canceled an appearance at a Republican dinner scheduled for Tuesday night in Buckhead.

Spokesman J.D. Gordon told The Associated Press that the former pizza executive was in Washington D.C. and would not be able to attend the Fulton County Republican Party Ronald Reagan Victory Celebration dinner Tuesday night.

The dinner had been on Cain's schedule and GOP officials had been promoting his appearance.
