Things that make you go hmmmm.
A northwest suburban man says he needs to clear the air after coming to the support of his fiancee, who accuses GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain of making a sexual play for her.
For starters, Sharon Bialek isnt his fiancee, said Mark Harwood in an exclusive interview on Wednesday night. We were engaged last year in June but I think there have been some assumptions that Sharon still lives here in Mundelein with me Harwood told the I-Team. Sharon and her son moved out in February of this year and now live in their own home so effectively were no longer engaged.
On Monday, when Ms. Bialek was the first of Cains alleged groping victims to go public, Harwood was contacted by news organizations trying to find out information about her. He did numerous interviews during which he was referred to as her fiancé. I made reference to the fact that we were engaged and got engaged last June, 2010 and I think the assumption then-we were still engaged. I think most people seemed to be under the belief that Sharon lived [in my house] but shes not here.
Heres video of the interview:

I dont know if this has any particular significance, but for several days the media wanted the world to think Sharon Bialek was engaged to this guy, because that seemed to undercut suggestions she might be in it for money, e.g., Ben Smith at Politico:
In fact, per the Tribune, shes living with her fiance, described as an executive in the medical equipment industry, in a large, five-bedroom home in north suburban Mundelein.
He was described as her fiancé in the lead of an Associated Press article citing him as corroboration of Bialeks account (although he didnt know her in 1997 and says she never told him about it until Nov. 4). It was Thursday before WLS-TV got this interview, so that little bit of misinformation got corrected by the local ABC station in Chicago, three crucial days after it had been widely reported and woven into the media narrative as evidence of Bialeks credibility.
Like I said: Things that make you go hmmmm.
Who is paying for it? I thought she was unemployed.
The Chicago Way club?
Follow the money!
How did this woman get a house of her own? Maybe she got some Axlerod bucks for her efforts.
No telling what else Axlerod got out of the deal. LOL
Not for years past they don't.
It's the same ol' same ol'....
What he always wanted, a new face?
Damage already done?
Yes. It’s very easy for people to get that somebody has been accused multiple times and that there were a couple of payoffs. That can be communicated in a few short sentences. Explaining why it’s probably not true takes a whole lot more time, words and effort. Well beyond the attention span of most Americans. And for many there will always be a doubt. Elections usually come down to a couple of percent. Take 2-3 percent from one candidate and give to another and you have 4-6% swing. That’s all it takes.
Oh, I get it. When you shack-up, you're "engaged". When you move on, you're no longer "engaged". What a farce!
The press is actually reporting the credibility issues with Bialek fairly widely. I think Cain’s effort to turn in back on them has worked to some extent. Right now his big problem is fighting a narrative they are trying to build. I think he needs to really get his story out there, not about the sex harassment but a summary of the man. A lot of people even in the time of google still have a ‘feed me like a baby’ attitude towards politics. Cain needs to start selling himself as well as his ideas. He has an impressive background but too many don’t know or purposely are trying not to know or blur it.
Bialek’s credibility has really been shredded.
She probably spent all this guys money, then made her deal with Axlerod and moved out.
Who had the most to gain from this? Interesting Cain has been on the campaign trail for months but she just thought about telling this guy a few days ago.
He’s not the boyfriend...he’s the pimp.
we should take up a collection to pay $50K to spill the beans about who talked her into going public with this
Undoubtedly, Obama's Nazi-sympathizing sponsor and puppetmaster, Soros.
They’ll be re-engaged if Buy-A-Lick gets herself a $1M blockbuster interview.
Something has bugged me about Sharon Bialek.
She didn’t seem upset or distraught at her press conference reporting these allegations. She seemed almost smiling at some points. Someone recounting a horrific experience is not going to behave that way.
And she seemed that way as she described Herman Cain reaching for you-know-where. She said to him that she had a boyfriend and that’s not why she was with him, etc. It just seemed too contrived.
To me, the appearance of Gloria Allred in this controversy only makes me more doubtful about this allegation. And now we hear that Sharon Bialek has declared bankruptcy twice, may or may not live with her alleged fiancee, etc. and this whole thing seems like a farce.
She’s no longer her fiance because they don’t live in the same house any longer? Since when did cohabitation a requirement for engagement? If they declared being engaged to each other, keep seeing each other, and never said to each other (or anybody else) ‘we break up’, I think they’re still engaged.
They are probably engaged to be engaged.
There was also George Stephoupolis on ABC asking this lady if she had contacted the Attorney for Kraushaer and given a fake name of “sharon”. She refused to answer the question which leads one to believe there are not 4 accusers, but at most 3 and maybe just the 2.
He’s running as fast as he can from this train wreck..can ya blame him?
INTERVIEW WEST NAZE
After reading all of the court motions and rulings associated with this guy, I am VERY surprised we have not heard from him yet. Maybe Lin Wood has him on standby.
Epic fail on the shakedown, the ex tard is running fast and far from Lin Wood.
He is filing for bankruptcy, he is jut giving it a different name.
She gets her own house yet she’s seriously in debt to multiple creditors? Very feeeeeshy indeed!
“Oh, I get it. When you shack-up, you’re “engaged”. When you move on, you’re no longer “engaged”. What a farce! “
Exactly! Can’t let anyone think they are just shacking up because that might prove she is a gold digging slut.
I sure hope Cain can explain this one. So what if she’s a fraud and in it for the money.
IT IS UP TO CAIN TO COME CLEAN!!!
(brought to you by Perry for President)
Meanwhile, a friend of Ms Bialek, from Chicago, told the New York Post: ‘She has a very infectious personality. Its easy to see how she won [Cain] over. But the reality of her situation is — shes a complete gold digger. Its all about the money.’
Adding that she was from a middle-income family but lives in a posh house while running from bill collectors, the source said: ‘Most of her jobs ended in termination. Its always the employers fault, not hers.
‘This is a lady who lives off the system. She is hellbent on finding a way of never having to work and living the lifestyle she wants to live, a very affluent lifestyle.’
The dude is distancing himself. If he wasn’t, then there would be wedding bells heard throughout the land next month.
Who knows? Maybe he’s a Cain supporter?
Buy-A-Lick has been sucking off of the sperm donor, father of her son, for $5000 a month in child support. Bet daddy can’t wait to get full custody...
Note to Sharon get a friggin job and pay your debts. That is the right thing to do, heifer.
She is also said to have accused a former boyfriend of harassing her for money he had loaned her after she borrowed $4,500 from him.
The IRS filed a tax lien against her in 2009 for nearly $5,200. In August, the Illinois Department of Revenue claimed Ms Bialek owed the state more than $4,300, including penalties and interest, relating to income taxes from 2004, according to county records.
Court records also show creditors took legal action against her during the past decade, including at least one lawsuit filed in Cook County.
But Mark Harwood, a corporate executive in the medical equipment industry, denied she had any financial difficulties and claimed he supports her so she can look after her 13-year-old son.
Good grief, is that true? Who is the moron that claims to be baby daddy?
I guess I will now call her a costly tart.
so she doesn't have a 'fiancee' - just a lot of debts and no visible means of support?
Bialek met her fiance online several years ago. After communicating via email for many months, they fell in love on their first date, which lasted 72 hours, Harwood said.
The couple moved in together four years ago and got engaged while vacationing in Venice, Italy, in June 2010.
As TV trucks pulled up in front her Mundelein home and reporters rang the doorbell, Harwood said his fiancee does not plan on any legal action against Cain and does not intend to stand in the political spotlight for very long.
“Were in it together,” he said. “My only concern is that it not become some type of media circus.”
Perhaps she has him bamboozled too. She never mentioned the so-called Cain assault until last Friday....so much for dramatics.
Did she give the ring back? Or was that nonrefundable?
So you're telling me there's a chance?
“Yesterday afternoon a tipster shared Sharon Bialeks history with me, at least according to my tipster. Bialek, I was told, conceived after a one night stand during the 90s and then demanded a settlement in excess of 1 million dollars in exchange to abort the pregnancy. This demand was later dropped. Because she believed she could make more money through child support, explained the tipster.”
“Then the tipster said Bialek had sued WGN Radio in a sexual harassment case. As it happens, an old boss of mine is now WGNs General Manager. I fired off some questions by email. He hasnt replied. He replies to most of my emails in a matter of minutes. This time not even a No comment, from his desk. It may just be that hes busy and after checking some websites of his competitors I found Bialek left the radio station before his arrival. There may be confidentiality agreements. If her departure followed such a suit I guess there could be two conclusions. Men cant help themselves in her presence or shes a serial accuser. I saw her picture on the web last night and certainly shes a good looking woman. A goddess however, shes not. ”
Court documents released Tuesday regarding a custody battle with the father of her 13 year-old son show that he’s paying $66,000 this year in child support.
The documents also indicate that 11 years ago the boy’s father alleged that Bialek had significant mental and emotional problems” that kept her from properly caring for her son.
Sharon Bialek’s fiance who said he is her primary source of financial support is unemployed and preparing to file for bankruptcy, according to Lake County court documents reviewed Tuesday by the Tribune. And in Cook County, lawsuits show she has been targeted by creditors who claimed she owed them thousands in unpaid rent, personal loans and credit card bills.
Though Bialek said her financial troubles were due to extenuating circumstances around 2000, court records show she continued to run afoul of creditors as recently as this summer.
In February 2000, Bialek borrowed $3,000 from Northwest Side resident Mark Beatovic, who handwrote a loan agreement in which she agreed to pay him back with interest over the next year. But in 2005, Beatovic filed suit against Bialek for not paying off the loan. In 2007, a judge ordered her to pay Beatovic $3,900.
A major source of Bialek’s income over the last decade has come from child support payments supplied by West R. Naze.
She sought more money in 2009, alleging Naze’s income had grown to about $30,000 a month. In October 2009, the judge ordered him to increase his child support to $66,700 a year.
So I guess that means she’s back on the prowl for a man and money. Who would have guessed?
>>After reading all of the court motions and rulings associated with this guy, I am VERY surprised we have not heard from him yet. Maybe Lin Wood has him on standby.
I’ve tried calling him, emailing him and talking to him on facebook. Allred is working on him.
Believe what you may but Allred would be the least of my worries if I had Lin Wood diggin’ into my history. Lin is not about out of court settlements, he is more disposed to dragging anyone into court.
It goes hand in hand with "dating" now means being constantly in the sack, but maintaining separate residences: "No, we're not dating; she won't sleep with me. Well, yes, I take her out every weekend, and see her some evenings during the week, so we are seeing each other, but we're not dating...".
Don't even ask what constitutes "flirting" now days...but it involves much more than a smile & wink.
>> “Who is paying for it? I thought she was unemployed.” <<
She’s collecting her Anita Hill Society benefits.
Doesn't matter either way, as it was mass produced and rather inexpensive.
so she doesn't have a 'fiancee' - just a lot of debts and no visible means of support?
Interesting comments, however # 36 sums it up nicely.
Then again she's trying to hurt a Republican - that means the AP won't mock her - and Carville will keep his yap shut.
