UPDATE: 5:30pm Eastern - Herman Cain's claim that he did not know whether any money was paid out in at least one of the sexual harassment cases is starting to show some cracks.

Herman Cain confirmed on Monday that he was, in fact, accused of sexual harassment while CEO of the National Restaurant Association. But somehow, word never reached him that the cases were resolved with a cash settlement. Nor is he too interested in finding out what happened after the fact.
"If the restaurant association did a settlement I am not -- I wasn't even aware of it and I hope it wasn't for much, because nothing happened," he said on FOX News. "So if there was a settlement, it was handled by some of the other officers that worked for me at the association."
He elaborated on his explanation in an appearance at the National Press Club later that day, saying that he was out of the loop regarding any final compensation deal after handing the matter over to others at the company.
