Gloria Cain: My husband 'respects women'

Washington

Cain's wife: accusers' claims untrue

Herman Cain's wife says the claims of sexual harassment against the GOP presidential candidate don't ring true. Gloria Cain told Fox News' Greta Van Susteren: "I'm thinking he would have to have a split personality to do the things that were said."

In an interview to be aired today during On the Record, Gloria Cain said she can't believe he harassed women when he led the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s. "You hear the graphic allegations and we know that would have been something that's totally disrespectful of her as a woman," she said. "And I know the type of person he is. He totally respects women."

Four women have accused Herman Cain of sexually harassing them when he led the association. He has denied wrongdoing and has been trying to move forward with his campaign.

Marchers protest anti-Semitic vandalism

Dozens of residents marched through a Brooklyn neighborhood on Sunday to protest against vandals who torched three cars and scrawled Nazi swastikas in an area populated by Orthodox Jews. Protesters said they were stunned after unknown vandals set the cars ablaze, spray-painted the letters "KKK" on a van, defaced four public benches with 16 swastikas and left other anti-Semitic messages on a sidewalk in the Midwood neighborhood before dawn on Friday. Police have made no arrests.

Effort to recall governor to begin

The effort to recall Wisconsin's controversial Republican governor is expected to begin Tuesday, although his opponents have yet to come up with a candidate to replace him. Democrats and union leaders are organizing the effort to oust Gov. Scott Walker after he pushed through a law that effectively ended collective bargaining for most public workers. Recall organizers must collect more than 540,000 signatures by Jan. 17 to trigger an election, likely in spring or summer.
