 A fourth woman has come forward in accusing Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain of sexual harassment1, but she is the first to go public. Cain is accused of inappropriate behavior stemming from his time as head of the National Restaurant Association. He maintains he is innocent of all charges.

Two Penn State administrators2 are being arraigned3 on charges connected to a child sex abuse case involving former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. Tim Curley and Gary Schultz are accused of lying to authorities and failing to report the alleged4 crime. Today State Police Commissioner5 Frank Noonan called for swift justice.
"This is not a case about football, it's not a case about universities, it's a case about children who've had their innocence6 stolen from them in a culture that did nothing to stop it or prevent it from happening to others."
Sandusky was arrested Saturday on charges that he targeted boys he met through The Second Mile, a charity he founded for at-risk youths.
NATO secretary general has talked to the White House today just a week after the military alliance wrapped up its operations in Libya. As NPR's Michele Kelemen reports, administration officials see Libya as a success story, but not a model for action in other places such as Syria.
The U.S. Ambassador to NATO, Ivo Daalder, says in the run-up to the Libya operation the military alliance came up with the framework for deciding on action. There must be a clear need, regional support and a sound legal basis. And he tells the Atlantic Council, a Washington think tank, that none of these applied7 to Syria.
"Given that reality at NATO there has been no planning, no thought and no discussion about any intervention8 into Syria. It just isn't part of the envelope of thinking."
Daalder is also defending the Obama administration's record on Libya, saying it wasn't leading from behind but making sure everyone contributed in a way that was fiscally9 prudent10. Michele Kelemen, NPR News, Washington.
Engineers are assessing the damage at a university in Oklahoma after a powerful earthquake at the state over the weekend. Michael Cross with member station KOSU reports a magnitude 5.6 quake broke loose a tower attached to a nearly 100-year-old building.
Students at Saint Gregory's University in Shawnee were taking part in a dance Saturday night when the quake hit. It was centered nearly 25 miles north of the campus. Spokesman Brad Collins says it shook loose one of the turrets11 and damaged the other three in the Benedictine Hall, which has come to represent the school.
"We’ve had a lot of alumni come through and look at the damage. Everybody, it’s pretty much the same, everyone’s in shock because it’s been there so long."
Collins says classes will resume tomorrow and the other three towers will likely have to come down and be rebuilt. For NPR News, I'm Michael Cross, in Oklahoma City.
At last check on Wall Street, the Dow was down 20 points.

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is rejecting reports that he will step aside to allow a new government to spearhead new reforms to stem Italy's burgeoning12 debt.
After the tumultuous events of Greece last week, investors13 are now focused on Italy, the eurozone's third largest economy. Unlike Greece, Portugal and Ireland, Italy's debt is too large for a bailout. Today, the country's cost of borrowing hits 6.58%, the highest level since the euro was established more than a decade ago.
Cigarette makers14 are getting a legal reprieve15 from having to put graphic16 images of the dangers of smoking on cigarette packages. Bold depictions such as diseased lungs were supposed to be included on tobacco products starting next year. But today, a judge blocked that federal requirement, adding that cigarette makers involved in a lengthy17 lawsuit18 will probably win on First Amendment19 grounds.
"Puss in Boots" has fended20 off the competition to stay atop the North American box office. NPR's Trina Williams has the studio's receipts.
The comedy of Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy in "Tower Heist" could not knock the swashbuckling "Puss in Boots" from its perch21. The "Shrek" spinoff scores an estimated 33 million dollars in ticket sales. 
"My thirst for adventure will never be quenched22." 
"Tower Heist", the favorite heading into the weekend makes enough for second place, the other newcomer for the weekend "A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas" places third. Horror film "Paranormal Activity" is No. 4, followed by "In Time". Trina Williams, NPR News.
Dow was down 14 points now at 11,969.
