New Cain accuser to hold press conference? Of with Gloria Allred)
Hot Air ^ | 110711 | Ed Morrissey

Posted on 11/07/2011 8:02:10 AM PST by Fred

A couple of caveats are in order when reading this breaking story about a woman coming forward in a press conference to accuse Herman Cain of sexual harassment. First, it’s Radar that is reporting the news, and their track record for accuracy on political stories is … less than spectacular, although not entirely bad. The second caveat? Her representation:

A new woman alleging sexual harassment by presidential hopeful Herman Cain will break her silence at a news conference with her powerhouse attorney Gloria Allred Monday afternoon in New York City, RadarOnline.comis exclusively reporting. …

The woman, who will be the first to go public on Monday, sought Cain’s help with an employment issue and was allegedly sexually harassed by him. Allred and her client will discuss, in detail, what she alleges occurred with Cain.

For those who can’t recall the last time Allred represented someone with a credible claim, you’ll have to look farther back than her attempt to kneecap Meg Whitman in the California gubernatorial election. Greta van Susteren destroyed Allred in a

So, they have dug all weekend, come up with the right price, and now they find a woman who says he did something while she went to him for help on another matter. Apparently she filed no claim back then.

It will be a big “he said she said,” with a “notable” attorney (known for going after similar stories) to help this woman through it.

Sickening, disgusting, and damnable lies, IMHO.

He’s been running for President for a year. It’s been many years since this occurred. And yet now is the time they decide to make their allegations, and in this case, they’ve found some woman willing (I presume for the right price) to step forward.

Greta van Sustern might have blown Gloria Allred out of the water, but Meg Whitman still lost the election, and a lot of it had to do with the woman’s allegations against Ms. Whitman.

And if she says he tried to have sex with me his numbers may go up 15%.

If Herman Cain was only at 5% in the polls, would this “poor, distraught” woman have come forward? Why now? And if the Politico hadn’t published this last week, would this be coming forward at all?

Agreed our media has done more vetting for the GOP in the last month than they have for their messiah in 5 years.

No mention how zero lost his election and had the woman thrown out , no mention of his school records, his pals Ayers, etc, no mention of his radical past, no mention of him with Soros, NO FRIGGING MENTION OF ANYTHING FORM OUR MEDIA but hey let them attack Rick S for his conservative views on h9omo agenda, or tripe up this 34/7 on MSNBC, NBC, etc for the last two weeks, or attack Michelle saying she is dumb, or attack Newt about his past marriage.

SICKENING what our media does . I watched , well flicked back and forth last week to see what MSNBC, CNN was covering and every time I switched over to MSNBC they had about CAIN all the time and yet CNN was had it about 70%.

Okay, can this be true? Laura Ingraham just reported that the woman claims Cain told a knock-knock joke that offended her. Ingraham also claims the accuser is the same woman who’s claiming that Justin Beiber got her pregnant. Laura didn’t sound like she was making a joke about this. Surely, this can’t be it, can it?

The alternative media needs to come out hard against this -

if he didn’t say “kiss it” or “put some ice on that”,

they need to shove their accusations where the sun don’t shine.

If I remember correctly, she was doing pretty good in the polls until this story broke. Of course, it was pretty close to the election and she spent most of the remaining time defending herself, and it did cost her the election IMO.

The first thing Cain should do in response is demand a polygraph of the woman, and then submit himself to the same if she complies.

Nope, a Franklin won't work today, but $10,000 in Franklins will "get-er-dun".

If they go on the jerry springer show and admit all the awful things that they claim to have done, a few thousand dollars and you can get a public admission about anything.

I think he meant Allred brings in a lot of media exposure and she does...unfortunately

I don’t think Cain can withstand this by ignoring it or just brushing it off but he deserves to be able to deal with it as a public admissions such as in what aside from innuendo are these various women claiming and can it hold up to scrutiny

the drip drip is hurting him contrary to what freepers like to think..but he deserves to know what they all claim..it’s ridiculous they can just make claims with no proof

I’m not a Cain man but that is plain wrong.

My main warning with Cain over this was his claim he did not “recall” these incidents from 12-16 years ago when it first surfaced. I don’t believe that and he had to know that if there had been money paid once over this sort of stuff that it would come up eventually.

But still...it’s a shame how corrupt the media is today.

Driving force behind all this is culture war..and folks keep telling us it’s just the economy stupid...these folks fear Cain will nominate that tipping justice to the Supreme Court

...you got that right....except that they have been "shopping" for the right price since the first allegations a couple of weeks ago. I guess this woman has been assured that nobody is going to be able to question her to any great extent.

If Cain can file a suit and make this "lady" have to testify under oath, then we could see how far the allegations go....

I’m starting to think this chasing after Herman Cain is more about the media keeping the public from hearing about obama and his administrations scandalous & maybe even felonious behavior involving Fast & Furious and Solyndra, while at the same time taking down Herman Cain.

Maybe, just maybe, we should WAIT until this woman (if she exists) has anything to say. If she has any evidence. If she has a credible story or not.

You all keep bringing up Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, & Juanita Broaddrick, yet you are treating the Cain women the same way the press treated the Clinton women. You now all believe the Clinton Women were telling the truth. Maybe, just maybe, after you hear the whole story, You may believe the Cain Women are also telling the truth.

Just because it is likely political, (timing, Cain's front runner status, pulling Black votes from Obama), that doesn't necessarily mean the accusations aren't true. BOTH could be true.

Blindly vaulting to Cain's defense is just as bad as assuming that he must be guilty.

I'll wait for the facts to come out, then decide.

Well, though, intentionally bringing on a parade of false accusations really isn't vetting. It's pure, unadulterated propaganda. The intent is not to INcrease our knowledge of the candidate, but to DEcrease our knowledge of him. In that sense, it is anti-vetting.

Or perhaps we could call it bed-vetting, because the LSM's collective mind (pun intended) appears not to have progressed beyond the emotional maturity of a three year old.

It will be a huge mistake on this woman’s part to come out.

I wouldn’t put it past Gloria to have made the whole thing up.

There’s nothing she can say or do to have any effect on Cain supporters.

She will just paint a target on her own back.

I hope that if she does come out, she is getting a heck of a lot more than $35,000 because she’ll need it to move to Jamaica or somewhere safe.

He never said he did not recall the incident.

He said from the beginning, he was accused, it was investigated and found to be false. He did not know there was an agreement between that woman and the NRA, until later in the day, it was obvious that someone contacted him and let him know that.

The paperwork and the statement by the NRA on Friday CONFIRMED Cain’s version of events, and that he was never a party to the woman’s exit agreement (whatever that was).

As for the other accusers, we don’t even know they exist. NRA has not confirmed any other cases. We only know of a 2nd woman from Politico, who admitted they only talked to her by phone and haven’t been able to talk to her in two weeks. And we still don’t even know from Politico what Cain was supposed to have done.

Then there is the pajamas media story, which if it were true that woman would have sued Cain for 7 figures or landed him in jail!!!

I am not a bit worried about what garbage this awful Allred brings out. People are not buying it.
