In an interview with CNN, the Republican presidential candidate said an accuser would soon allege to have had a long-term extramarital affair with Herman Cain.

"I just wanted to give you a heads up and your audience a heads up that here we go again," Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said on CNN a few moments ago.

Cain told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that another accuser would come forward and say they were involved in a long-term extramarital affair. Cain said he knows the accuser and he thought "we were friends."

If you remember, Cain's campaign has been rocked by allegations that he sexually harassed women while he was at the helm of the National Restaurant Association. Two women went public with the accusations and while at first Cain saw his campaign contributions expand, his poll numbers have sagged since.

In his interview with CNN, Cain would not go into details, saying all he knew was what his lawyer had heard from the reporter about to break the story. But he said that when the specifics are made public, "we will respond to every" detail.

Cain always maintained he did not sexually harass anyone and he added that in this case he "didn't do anything wrong."
