Mark Block, Herman Cain's Chief Of Staff, Blasts Perry Campaign On Fox News (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Mark Block, GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain's Chief of Staff, blasted Rick Perry's campaign during an appearance Wednesday on Fox News.

"The actions of the Perry campaign are despicable," Block told Fox News' Bret Baier. Block was referring to the Cain campaign's belief that a Perry adviser who once worked for Cain during an unsuccessful 2004 Senate bid was behind the recent surfacing of sexual harassment allegations leveled at Cain.

Block told Baier that he "absolutely" believes the Perry campaign was behind the Politico story which initially brought the allegations to light.

"Rick Perry and his campaign owe Herman Cain and his family an apology. Both the Rick Perry campaign and Politico did the wrong thing by reporting something that wasn't true from anonymous sources, and like I said, they owe Herman Cain and his family an apology," said Block.

Block also explained, "I asked Mr. Cain directly on numerous occasions ‘was there anything to these allegations?’ and he looked me square it he eye and said no. Mr. Cain has never committed any sexual harassment. Period. End of story."
