Washington, D.C. (AP) - Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is investigating possible improper financial arrangements between a charity and his campaign.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Monday that Cain, who
also is dealing with sexual harassment allegations from the 1990s,
allowed a tax-exempt charity to illegally provide money to help
Cain's campaign get started.

Cain's chief of staff, Mark Block, says the campaign has asked a
lawyer to review the transactions. Block says the campaign will
comment when that investigation is over.

The charity, Prosperity USA, was founded by Block and Linda
Hansen, Cain's deputy chief of staff. The Journal Sentinel reported
there are questions about approximately $40,000 that helped Cain's
campaign get started earlier this year.
