Posted on 11/12/2011 10:08:45 AM PST by John Semmens
Gloria Allred, the lawyer retained by Cain accuser Sharon Bialek, slammed presidential candidate Herman Cain for retaining attorney Lin Wood to help him defend against the sexual harassment accusations that have been launched against him. Wood is considered a top notch expert in defamation of character cases and gained great notoriety for his efforts in clearing the name of Richard Jewel, the man who was falsely accused of bombing the Atlanta Olympics in 1996.
If hes innocent why does he need a lawyer? Allred demanded to know. Truth is the defense of the innocent. Only the guilty need an attorney to make their case. I think people will find this latest twist highly suspicious.
To delve into this suspicious behavior, Allred suggested that Congress subpoena Cain to testify before a House or Senate Committee. Not only is the nation at risk of putting a sexual predator into the office of president, but it has become clear that substantial reforms need to be enacted, Allred insisted.
Among Allreds proffered reforms would be provisions aimed at protecting women from having to expose themselves to potential retaliation for leveling harassment accusations. A woman should be allowed to remain anonymous throughout the whole process, Allred argued. Being identified as an accuser can wreck a womans future employment opportunities. Any needed communications can go through her lawyer.
A further measure to reduce potential retaliation would be to require the accused to step down until he can prove that no woman has ever felt intimidated by his actions in the workplace, Allred said. Or he could post a substantial bond that would be forfeited if any additional accusations were made prior to the full settlement of ones that have already been levied.
In related news, NBC talking head David Gregory rued the lack of a Grand Wizard in the Republican Party who could order Cain to step down. Democrats dont have this kind of shortcoming, Gregory maintained. I mean, after Ted Kennedy killed that girl he was forced to put his presidential ambitions on hold for 10 years. That was real leadership, not the anarchy were seeing from the Republicans in this current flap.
As President, he would be her boss....and yeh...that would be sexual harrassment.
And then there's the fact that he said it wasn't nice. Maybe offer her $45,000.
That’s why people like Sharon hire her!
So was your sense of humor surgically removed or were just born with that handicap?
I could almost see Gregory saying that...classic!
Semi-news in deed. I am learning to read the small print on these posts.
We had some inmates who carved a little peephole in a door which let them look into an area were women staff were showering. A smart Sgt. set them up and caught them.
One of the employees contacted Allred and she wrote a letter to our director demanding an explanation.
I was assigned to look int it and penned the response. My secretary reviewed it, the chief counsel reviewed it and the director signed it. We mailed it to Allred’s office.
Right after we mailed it, the counsel, was looking at his copy and noticed I had misspelled Allred as AlFred. He laughed and said it was probably a $100,000 mistake.
Fortunately she accepted our actions and we never heard from her again.
Please tell me you were being sarcastic - and that you were parodying the idiot Carl Quintenilla of CNBC.
LoL. That’s rich coming from the ambulance chaser.
The President is not the boss of anyone in Congress.
Hopefully, the phrase "Separation of Powers" rings a bell.
Mr. Cain’s attorney must have really shaken up the Allred camp. He is a “defamation of character” attorney, not a criminal defense attorney. Regarding he must be guilty because he hired an attorney, what does she think her client did? Or is she admitting that someone else hired her?
LOL! You sure are a Saca something....
Oh, give me a break.
Cain has called Pelosi ‘Princess Nancy” and Reid “Prince Harry” on his radio show for years.
I loved it
I thought a PR person was pointing to guilt.
He would be her boss? You really need to read the Constitution and have someone who understands English go through it with you. The President is the head of the Executive Branch, see if you can figure it out from there.
Using her own logic, every client who hires her as his/her defense attorney is guilty...no?
At least he didn't call her
PELOSI GALORE like I have for years.
Seeing you posting history, it does not surprise me that you will not hesitate to smear one more conservative, along with the liberal gutter trawling bottom feeding smear merchants.
Cain hired a lawyer that specializes in “defamation of character cases.” Mr. Cain is getting ready to sue some bottom feeding scum.
I think I could write better, sharper, satire.
But it is about right.
Only question now is how well Alred has her assets protected.
Oh, hold on for a tick, it's you.
Still, isn't this pretty much what this reprehensible maggot said?
That is so funny.
No fair using a clown like Allred for satire. It’s like shooting fish in a barrel.
Next, you’ll be using Joe Biden for satire.
You can bet her client has been covered by some very slick legal moves and is also well protected.
This may have gone quiet the last few days, but it is far from over. I say so because Gloria Alred is in it for a reason.
Perhaps to rein in YOUR lying mouth Gloria? HMMM sounds like she may be a bit scared of defamation?
Gloria Allred’s parents must have been brother and sister, no way could a human being be THIS dumb
Gloria Allred confessed that she likes being groped during airport pat downs.....she said something like: “she enjoyed being groped”!!
Not only is the nation at risk of putting a sexual predator into the office of president,”
She had no problem with Bill Clinton, a rapist and sex pervert serve two terms in the White House
I agree; he had it all wrong. He should have called her your most high and exalted royal majesty queen Pelousy. OFF WITH HER HEAD.
And no, I didn’t misspell her name, she reminds me of a parasitic body louse.
Small wonder she opts for settlements rather than arguing her case in a professional court.
Before we talk about a sexual predator, let’s talk about this in detail. The Chicago Way: O’Grady may be the smoking gun for the Cain attacks. http://www.teapartytribune.com/2011/11/10/the-chicago-way-orady-may-be-smoking-gun-for-cain-attacksg/
Maybe Obama should step down or post a substantial bond until this is cleared up?
So, Bialek has Gloria. Would that mean Bialek is guilty? Huh, Gloria?
ooopppppssss missed the satire part.....
Yeah. Like Jack Ryan did.
Clinton, Edwards hired lawyers...who else?
If that is Allred’s mentality- she should be banned from working in the US judicial system.
The fact that this bitch was retained proves her client has no basis for her claim and needs to protect herself from counter claims from her lying.
“As President, he would be her boss”
Are you trying to say the President is the “boss” of Congress?
Well Allred’s client hired an attorney, too. Does that mean she’s guilty? How stupid!
Normally I would agree with you. But this is different. Gloria is used to the “hit and run.” Make the accusation and then fade into the woodwork. This time it’s different.
Mr. Cain is the first, to my knowledge, who has actually hired an attorney to push back. And it’s not some no-name from a local legal clinic. No, Cain has brought out the big gun, Lin Wood, who has a track record of making those who think they are immune from litigation, pay out big bucks for their big mouths.
Is it an effective strategy? Have you seen Sharon Bialek on the talk shows lately? Notice how Gloria has changed her tune from “Cain the attacker’ to “Cain must be guilty because he hired a lawyer.” A pretty big swing from someone who is outraged at his guilt.
You’re right, this isn’t over. If Cain continues to drop in popularity and ultimately drops out of the race, he will have demonstrated actual, measurable “harm” and since there is no corroboration of the accusation. It may be actionable.
Gloria is an officer of the court. She is bound by “ethics” just like any court officer. Her responsibility not only lies to her client, but also the system. She knew full well that if there had been a sexual assault on her client, the statute of limitations for prosecution had expired. She may have been able to file a civil case for her client either under DC law or Federal code. She chose to hold a presser.
She may find that Lyn Wood is just compiling a very long list of her activities, her penchant for running her clients in front of a camera rather than her filing suits in a timely manner and her proclivity to target high-profile REPUBLICANS (Whitman, Cain, et al.)
Even though she was the mouthpiece for the girl who accused Anthony Weiner, what was the resolution of the case? Did Allred file a sexual misconduct suit against Weiner on her client’s behalf? The pictures were, after all, unsolicited, sexual in nature, and designed for the sexual gratification of another. Did she advise the girl what her legal remedies were under the law? Or...did she use her clients position for her (Allred’s) personal benefit.
In other words, if the girl “hired” Allred and there existed an attorney-client relationship, what did the “client” receive to make her whole.
To paraphrase a famous Cuban band leader/philosopher “Gloria...you may have a lot of ‘splainin to do..”
