CHART: Herman Cain Fundraising Spiked After Sexual Harassment Allegations


Cain's campaign received $245,604 -- more than they had on any other single day within a few weeks of when the allegations emerged -- on Nov. 1, just two days after Politico's Oct. 30 report.

Cain eventually suspended his presidential campaign on Dec. 3.
