Why was Sharon Bialek Fired?
PJ Media ^ | 11/7/2011 | Dr. Helen Smith

Posted on 11/07/2011 6:58:37 PM PST by Qbert

After reading the news and watching the videos of Sharon Bialek, the Herman Cain accuser, I noticed that many of the articles mentioned that Bialek was fired or let go ” from the NRA’s educational foundation.” However, none of them mentioned why. Being let go or fired is more serious than simply being laid off. I wonder why there is no mention of the reason she was fired? This might give more insight into her character and whether she is a trustworthy person or not. Why was she fired? Does anyone know or has anyone seen a report as to what happened with her job in the summer of 1997? Here is more from the New York Times:

Ms. Bialek said she first met Mr. Cain during her time at the association’s Chicago office, when he sat next to her at a dinner during one of the group’s conventions. He later invited her and her boyfriend to an after-party in his hotel suite, she said.

But the alleged harassment did not occur until after she was fired, she said. Sue Hensley, a spokeswoman with the restaurant association confirmed that “Sharon Bialek was employed by the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation from 12/30/96 – 6/20/97.”

She didn’t work there long, I wonder what happened?

Why does Mr. Cain have to prove his innocence? Are we under Code Napoléon or the US Constitution?

The accuser herself said they told her she did not meet revenue goals or fundraising goals. If she was working for a foundation to raise revenue that is how you would be evaluated. I see it all the time. Sales people who don’t make their quota and not understanding why a company lets them go. She does not get it either as evidenced by her comments.

Rumor has it that she tried to seduce Mr. Cain in an attempt to keep her job. (sarc)

There is no legal action here. Cain is trying to convince a majority of voters to vote for him to be president. That's why he has to convince people he didn't do it or it's irrelevant.

For the record I don't believe All-Red's latest shill. I don't know about the women who settled, but nobody has even said what he supposedly did there, so I can't take it too seriously. But some voters will. Everyone will decide for themselves, and it doesn't help him.

Another major issue, she went to a Cain speech sometme after this, asked to meet cain because she had worked with him, they seem to have exchanged normal pleasantries.

At her news conference they deliberately finessed this, claiming she went there to “confront” Cain.

Notice she kept saying she still found his speech inspiting, because I heard on the radio today that’s what she told one of the event organizers when asking to greet Cain.

This behavior was NOT consistent with someone who felt they had been molested by Cain.

Nothing like a little late 80s sitcom reference to throw people off.

I don’t think most of us knew who Mayim Bialik was when she was a star.

I don't know, but if what she said is true, and that had happened to me I WOULD NOT HAVE HAD TO KEEP LOOKING DOWN READING IN ORDER TO SAY WHAT HAD HAPPENED. I would remember 15yrs 20yrs 30yrs ago. I could look the press in the face and say it.

That women is a lier.

Somebody posted on the Brietbart thread that she had 9 jobs in 13 years. If that's true she was probably cute enough in her day to flirt her way into getting hired - then quickly proved to be lazy or incompetent.

That is the best question I've heard all day.

Even if he did everything all these women say he did, none of it reaches the level of sexual harassment being he stopped when they allegedly told him to stop.

Mark Levin read some of an article from some east coast paper that this woman has had multiple jobs in a short period,Many money problems....and he raised some very good questions...
She is just another “Anita Hill” LIAR IMHO.
Don’t Forget the sleasy way AllRed got Meg Whitman’s Maid to Lie and say She was Mistreated By The Witmans...
It was all CRAP.

AllRED is a Leftist Slip and Fall Trickster IMHO.

This story is that it did not happen in the work place with this women. She was evidently let go and she supposedly met with Cain to see if he could help her get another job.

She is one big liar though because SHE HAD TO READ EVERY BIT OF HER STATEMENT.

—Chicago Tea Party leaders and key people say they never saw her at the Cain speech, and nobody else recognizes her, or has ever heard of her before:

More than likely she was trying to extort some money from him. or maybe give him the come on and then claim harassment when he responded.

Excellent point. So she either didn't go there to confront him or she lied to get access...one way or another she is caught in a lie right there.

The only fact that I need to know is that the acts Bialek is accusing Cain of happened over 15 years ago.

She had a chance to act on those claims for as long as 1 year after they happened as per the legal Statute of Limitations. She should have made the claims then - its a bit too late now. It's not like Cain was a Governor of State and could threaten he lively hood by cutting off state funds and siccing regulators after her.

I don’t think he’s ever been considered a serious or first tier candidate in anything he has done until now.

I don’t like the hypocrisy of the MSM, who ignored much of Clinton’s women. That said, Herman has a problem here. Obviously a lot of Freepers want to hang in there with him. Then again a lot of people hung in there with Anthony Weiner until more and more people came out.

Is this shiny enough? Bialek, who identified herself as a Republican, was born and raised in Chicago and spent the majority of her life in the city. From the end of 1996 until her termination in mid 1997, she worked for the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF) Chicago offices. Bialek says she does not plan on filing any lawsuits against Mr. Cain.

Although the National Restaurant Association has a government relations office in the Washington D.C. area, it's main headquarters is in Chicago, where the annual show is held and where the state restaurant associations network with another.

Interestingly, the Illinois Restaurant Association (IRA), located in Chicago, is headed up by Sheila O'Grady. Ms. O'Grady, who was the chief of staff to former Chicago mayor Richard Daley, was appointed President of the IRA in 2007.

I received a press statement from Ms. O'Grady's office last week after a blog post of mine on the water cooler regarding a source close to the Cain camp believed Mayor Rahm Emanuel had something to do with the exchange of information regarding sexual harassment charges against Mr. Cain. Mayor Emanuel has denied any involvement.

Are you seriously comparing Herman Cain to Anthony Weiner? We saw the Weiner pictures with our own eyes - but according to you - we should go with the slimers and dump Cain right now.

So far, everything is inuendo & we've been there and done that with the MSM & RATS & it's over!! We aren't buying that crap anymore.

End of 1996 till mid 1997 is 8 months max, what did she get terminated for? That is not a long time to employed, after only 8 months of work you go to the President of the association to get your job back? not some mid level manager?

Not every woman files suit. She did not at that time and she probably would never have spoken of it except for the fact he is RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. She’s coming forth to corroborate the stories that Cain has a problem. Again, to blindly defend Cain is just as bad as blindly believing all these women.

I said on another thread that I was sexually harrassed by an important man in my industry. I chose to leave, I didn’t file anything. This was 20 years ago. If that man was now running for President, and women were coming out of the woodwork about sexual harrassment and were being trashed, I would probably come out to back up their stories. That’s what I see this woman is doing and I understand it.

She was terminated because she was no meeting the goals she was hired to achieve.

The most curious thing about her “supposed” trip to meet with Cain is that she went from Chicago to DC. I find this extremely curious.

Oh how wrong you are in your “analysis”.

1. Wiener virtually hibernated only to surface when he found it advantageous.

2. More people came out? Excuse me if I missed something terribly important, but the only thing coming out over and over was the wiener himself/itself. (What pun?)

3. The ONLY thing he has ever done politically before was to run for Senator in 2004.

4. The only problem Cain has right now is people like you who just can’t help themselves but to spread hyperbole and willful misinformation.
