Internet of Photo Said to be of "Bialek" at TeaCon is a Different Person
Vanity

This photo has been going around the Internet the last two days claiming to be of Sharon Bialek and Herman Cain at TeaCon.

When this story first came out and she mentioned she went to TeaCon 2011, I was looking through a lot of photos people had on Flickr and other sites. This woman's photo came up often, but this is not Sharon Bialek. This woman was one of the hosts of TeaCon and appeared on stage, introducing many of the speakers. Here is another photo of her.

(URL just in case the site doesn't allow redirects

You can tell from this photo (same dress and hair) this is a completely different woman as Bialek but the the woman first photo.


TOPICS: Reference
KEYWORDS: amyjacobson; bialek; cain; teacon
If possible, please help nip this one in the bud if you see this spread around on other sites or even here. This isn't Bialek.

The woman above looks to weigh about 50 lbs. less than Bialek.

I wonder if this is the one seen hugging Cain at the rally. If so, she should come forward to put that rumor to rest.

Good research. Nothing worse than getting facts wrong. I had to fight to get people to stop using the million man march photos as if they were the tea party march on Washington.

The right attacked me for being anti-Tea Party and the left attacked me for being racist-lol

Actually she is Amy Jacobson, and is the one who is saying she SAW Bialek hug Cain.

The woman in both photos is Amy Jacobson, a radio show host who was at the event and witnessed the meeting between Cain and Bialek. Her story came out in this article in the Chicago Sun Times, where the other photo is shown correctly identifying her. Case closed.

She has come forward, shes on the radio every week day morning and has explained. The confusion occured when Micheal Sneed from the Chicago Suntimes ran a story about Jacobson spotting Bialek at TeaCon (Bialek was in the radio bussness at one time). But Sneed ran a picture of Jacobson with Cain in the article and many people assumed it was Bialek.

For further documentation, Jacobson was also interviewed by Glenn Beck yesterday. She discussed the event (which he attended as well), and her thoughts on the Cain/Bialek meeting. She stated late in the interview that she somewhat believes Bialek's account. The interview is here in video format.

I wish someone had asked Cain if he remembered her at the rally. Amy Jacobson said she witnessed it and Bialek was determined to get to Cain and that she whispered in his ear. I would think Cain would remember that. I think she was setting the stage for her Grand Illusion.

I sent this one to the mods to see if they can fix and change it.

BTW, our fellow FReeper LibertyRocks is acquainted with Amy Jacobson, and I believe acknowledged it is her somewhere on this thread. I hope she'll correct me if I'm wrong about the acknowledgment.

You are right, I found the name associated with her photo at TeaCon a lot.

Unfortunately, that photo is going all over the internet claiming to be the encounter of Cain and BuyALick.

Any number of FReepers mistook that photo for Bialek yesterday. It was brought up on a number of threads that the facial features didn’t look right. And the caption on the Sun Times article correctly identified the woman, the article in fact being about her encounter with Sharon Bialek. That settled the issue, however rumors persist...

This is no exclusive.

I posted the original article from the Sun Times yesterday, along with the photo. At that time, there was no caption.

Sometime after I posted it, the photo on the website was updated with a caption, identifying the woman as Amy Jacobsen. She was the person quoted in the story.

The comments on the Sun Times website were also questioning the identity of the woman. Apparently, an editor realized a clarification was needed.

In several blog or news sites the photo does not id this as Bialek. Mediaite has it correct- in the text of their article they state Bialek was there. The blond woman is said to have seen Bialek accost Cain and do the ear whisper.

The whole thing is a set up op by a qualified nut job who is probably in the pay of the demonrats— it’s how they work.
You know, like the couple in FL who were traveling and just happened to have a cellphone scanner and recorded a conversation between Boehner and Speaker Gingrich— back in those days.
Sleaze ohs.

Don't care who she is but Herman shouldn't have his hand right under her boob in that top photo That's a no-no if you've ever been involved in ministry and would be a good rule for politicians as well.

Nothing negative intended - he just shouldn't come anywhere near that intimate of an area.

Yes, you are correct. The picture taken at the TeaCon is of Amy Jacobson, and NOT Sharon Bialek. When the group photo was originally published at the Sun-Times along with Sneed’s column they didn’t have a caption up. The caption was added a little later in the morning.

It’s 100%, for sure, Amy in that picture next to Herman Cain. And that is Amy in the second picture as well.

According to Amy (through interview w/media no personal interaction), Sharon *stormed off* and joined the crowd after her little *chat* with Cain.

As I mentioned to you this morning in that other thread, I suspect her meeting with Herman Cain was a set-up. It doesn’t negate his statement in the news conference of not knowing her one bit. Anyone can walk up to you, introduce him/her self, hold a brief private conversation and walk away. Do you know that person? No. I think this entire event was staged to give credence to her account of knowing Cain.

If you listen to that interview I linked to, between he and Amy Jacobson, she had to correct him a number of times on comments he failed to grasp; comments that were not unclear or misleading, IMO.

I think he has a rudimentary grasp of the issue and is more interested in commenting than getting to the facts.

That’s a definite possibility. I keep thinking back to what Amy said - that Sharon kept asking over and over when he was going to be there, was he there yet, etc... etc...

It’s like she was making a point to let everyone around her know SHE was there, and exactly who she was there to meet with (people who traveled in her social & professional circles). If it wasn’t for her friends & business acquaintances being there I doubt she would have had any access to him at all.

I think all of this sounds like a set-up, frankly. To be seen and heard by people who knew exactly who she was. To give the appearance of *knowing* him well, etc... I’ve worked several campaigns and there are always situations where people who don’t know you at ALL will come up and be a little too friendly - like they’ve known you for years, but you honestly have no clue who they are!

Add that in with all of the other issues this woman has, and I frankly have serious doubts as to the veracity of her claims. I hope the opposition has overplayed their hand. I believe they just might have...

Why should Herman Cain remember Bialek, if she hugged him that night? Just how many other blonde women hugged him during the course of the evening? Her name might even have been mentioned to him, but do you expect him to remember EVERY name mentioned to him during a large gathering like that?

He may well remember that. But if he hadn't met her before, and it was the only exchange he had with this woman, he may well not recognize her as the same person. That's the point. The meeting 1 month ago doesn't negate his statement of not knowing her. Even if he did associate that meeting with this woman, he can still honestly claim not "knowing" her.

No, she is Amy Jacobsen, and she is one of the people that reported seeing Bialek hug Cain at the rally.
