Herman Cain's Anita Hill Joke Caught On Tape (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Despite several allegations of sexual harassment, Herman Cain continues to treat the issue like it's a big joke.

According to The Caucus blog, the Republican presidential hopeful was caught on tape Thursday making a wisecrack about Anita Hill, the law professor who lodged sexual harassment accusations against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas 20 years ago.

Cain was making a campaign stop in Kalamazoo, Mich., on Thursday when a person in the crowd mentioned Hill. He laughed and said: "Is she going to endorse me?"

A video of the exchange aired Thursday night on FOX News Channel's "Special Report With Bret Baier," The New York Daily News reported.

Earlier this week, a Chicago woman claimed Cain sexually harassed her in 1997. She is the fourth woman to allege that Cain engaged in inappropriate sexual behavior. He denies the charges.
