FROM THIS EPISODE

The people calling themselves Occupy LA marched to the financial district on Saturday, advocating that people withdraw their money from big banks and make their deposits somewhere else. It's an old strategy with a new look, proposed by a local woman we talk with. It turns out she envisioned something different than what happened on the streets of LA. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, a former employee goes public with graphic charges of sexual harassment against Herman Cain as the GOP race for president gets more unsettled than ever.

Main Topic Protesting Wall Street, in Public and Private 23 MIN, 1 SEC

On Saturday, Occupy LA turned into Bank Transfer Day as hundreds of people marched through the financial district to demonstrate their frustration with financial institutions, advocating that people withdraw their money from big banks and deposit it in credit unions. We speak with the woman who's getting credit for the idea by suggesting it to her friends on Facebook, and hear how that strategy is working nationwide.

Main Topic The Republican Race for President: More Unsettled than Ever 30 MIN, 13 SEC

The Republican Race for President: More Unsettled than EverEstablishment Republicans and other political pros think Mitt Romney is the most likely candidate to unseat President Obama a year from now. We get the latest with the Iowa caucuses less than two months away. In the meantime, a fourth woman has made sexual harassment charges against Herman Cain, this time in a public statement with the ugly details. Sharon Bialek, a former employee of the National Restaurant Association, then run by Herman Cain, said she'd been fired from her job and that her boyfriend suggested she ask Herman Cain how to get a new one. Facing a bank of cameras in New York City, she gave a graphic account of what happened. We hear what she said and what the impact might be and look at how the Republican presidential field is shaping up.
