My guess is that records are not kept for 14 years.
I’ll bet you that they are completely unverifiable. No telling of the IRS/HSA/FBI can burrow back to 2001, but otherwise who cares?
I don’t think it’s possible to call up a hotel and pay them to upgrade someone else’s room that you didn’t pay for to begin with.
I suspect she was upgraded or she would not have mentioned such a otherwise meaningless factoid. If he did upgrade her room, he probably had some staff person do it - something not at all uncommon, especially where large organizations have special deals with hotels. We use to do that frequently when we had out-of-town visitors with a Company I ran, and I myself have had my reservations upgraded after the fact by businesses with similar special rate deals with hotels without me ever asking them to do it.
It’s the key question, and I can’t believe the press didn’t ask it. Are they even looking? One is that I know of: Geraghty at NRO has called the Hilton, but has no answer, at least not yet. The press conference was a FAIL all around. The press and the candidate were both retailing generalities. Specifics like the hotel have to be addressed, and either proven or disproven.
He upgraded her hotel room, wined her and dined her and wined her some more at the hotel, then goes for the Lewinski in the front seat of the car. Yeah, that adds up.
I said this exact same thing to my husband and son. it would be interesting to find out if Gloria had already contacted them to find out if they keep records back that far
Upgrading her room proves nothing... whether he did or didn’t.
From my experience, hotels will not tell anyone what room you are in unless given permission to do so. I call bs...
That would require a random act of journalism.
I doubt records exist or they’d have them, but I don’t see how this is relevant, other than in a very circumstantial sense. Even if he upgraded her room that doesn’t prove he groped her as she claims - the two acts are totally independent.
Hubby was thinking that Herman Cain missed a great opportunity in his press conference this afternoon. When asked about the veracity of his accusers, hubby said that Herman should ask the members of the MSM who were asking the questions, why THEY’RE not doing some investigation of these charges, to discover their veracity, since they clearly don’t trust Cain’s denials.
Bialek said yesterday that her boyfriend at the time booked the room for her, which I thought was a strange fact to include in her statement. What relevance does that have, whether she booked it or the boyfriend booked it? By the way if it was booked under Bialek’s boyfriend’s name, unless Cain is a mindreader how could he unilaterally upgrade her room? He wouldn’t know the name it was under.
Turn on mark Levine - she used to work for CBS and people there said she had a ‘reputation’. He’s playing tapes from a morning show from Chicago where people who knew her said she probably went after Cain when the car was parked ...
Actually that is wrong. I remember when everyone was screaming that Cinton was a serial sexual abuser and that the WH should not have such a person as Pres.
Frankly the double standard is that now Conservs are ready to overlook Cains Alleged behavior. Makes us all look like hypocrites. IMO
Jim Geraghty tried to get them and they said they would not release records for privacy reasons. If Cain was telling the truth, why would he not try to have them released?
