Chicago TEA Party Lead Activist on Sharon Bialek...
Politcal Arena ^ | 11/7/11 | Chuck Norton

Posted on 11/07/2011 1:43:38 PM PST by justsaynomore

by Political Arena Editor Chuck Norton

When Sharon Bialek said that he was with Herman Cain at the Chicago TEA Party event with Herman Cain I reached out to one of the key voices and leaders of the Chicago TEA Party C. Steven Tucker and he says “I did not recognize her Chuck and I was there all weekend.”

I have been reaching out to my other friends in the Chicago TEA Party and so far no one recognizes her. Gloria Allred portrayed Bialek as a TEA Party Republican. Having seen her picture Bialek is not someone who goes unnoticed easily.

Tucker comments further:

I have spoken at Tea Party events ALL OVER Chicagoland including TeaCon Midwest 2011 where Gloria Allred says her client “confronted” Herman Cain. I have never seen nor have I ever even heard of a Sharon Bialek.

Steven Tucker with Herman Cain Steven Tucker with Herman Cain

Steven Tucker with Michelle Bachman Steven Tucker with Michelle Bachman

Steven Tucker with Sarah Palin Steven Tucker with Sarah Palin

Bailek has not been seen at any other TEA Party events. Even if she had gone to just one, why go to the one with Herman Cain and no others? It makes no sense.

Sharon Blailek said that this happened in 1996 so where was Blailek when Herman Cain was running for Senate in 2004?

We have been doing internet searches on Sharon Bialek. Her linkedin and all social networking/employer networking sites where her name appears seem to have been scrubbed. When you are telling the truth, why make the attempt to scrub your past?

Speaking of not making sense, why would a supposed Republican TEA Party activist/sympathizer call a known leftist hatchet man like Gloria Allred, as any association with Allred would impune her credibility?

“Do you honestly think if this happened the way she says it happened, she would have told only 3 people that he harassed her and not speak of the sordid details?”

If this was factual, she would have started telling friends and neighbors that, “that SOB tried to get into my pants some years back, the dirty bastard”!

I did not make such a comparison - the molestation example proves my point quite nicely, but there is no comparison being made.

The “innocent until proven guilty” standard applies to the Government, not to private citizens. Citizens are free to think and say whatever they wish to about those who are accused. We do this when, for example, we won’t let our children be near accused child molesters. We all know that the allegation might be false, but the risk is too great. Even if the person is acquitted at trial we would most likely be wise not let our children go near him.

I have a little trouble taking anything from CBS seriously after the TANG forgeries with Mary Mapes and their attempt to set up their own fake “secret prison” using that fraudulent “soldier” Jack Idema in Afghanistan. He and his assistants are serving time over that.

If the the matter is CRIMINAL then the standard the GOVERNMENT must use is “innocent until proven guilty”, but even then, when there is enough credible evidence the accused is detained in jail prior to the verdict. Citizens are free to treat the person as if they are guilty, but need to be careful about defamation.

If the matter is not criminal, then “guilt” is not even at issue so that standard should not be mentioned.

Unfortunately, people like make the error frequently, as you did. Why are you so defensive? You are wrong and I pointed it out to you. You should be thanking me and apologizing for your mistake.

It’s not evil to consider that possibility. There’s an even chance she offered a Lewinski in the hopes of landing a job. It’s also possible some organization may even have paid her to set up a honey trap; after all the Soviets used to do it all the time and even recently the Russians were doing it by trying to get in with Hillary Clinton. I think the Muslim sisterhood bat them to it, though.

Why not? We have big corporations backing OWS protesters and providing them with facilities and space, why not fund hookers too?

If you read the post carefully, you would have noticed that I did not compare acts to acts, but expectations to expectations. Nor did I say that the retired defensive coordinator was guilty; I said he was charged.

You might want to refer to the Breitbart link I mentioned above. Breitbart claims a solid source who confirms that the woman was at the event. Even if that source is correct, we still don’t know that anything untoward happened between her and Cain. If you want to condemn Breitbart, go ahead. I was simply linking to a source that provides pertinent information.

I for one am condemning no one, neither the defensive coordinator nor Breitbart. I merely passed on that the former was charged with a crime and that latter reported a source.

In light of the inherent unpredictability of recent events, you might want to temper your confident assurances about how things just HAVE to turn out.

It is better we find out what is the truth now then during the general election. As it is, even though the women are shaky, there is something not right about Cain. I have always had my doubts about all of his behavior after all this started. He has been lying/backtracking since day one, from what I can tell.

“there is something not right about Cain”

Care to elaborate?

Plenty of people have come forward to testify to Cain’s character.

Never fear, concern troll.

So far, almost NOBODY on FR is blithely assuming she is innocent.

Except some Perrywinkles.

“Troll” doesn’t cut it.

I am a big Cain supporter and a FReeper for 11 years.

These “allegations” are ancient incidents and can’t be prosecuted, so “innocent until proven guilty” has no place in the discussion.

I don’t like how he has handled this at all. It doesn’t seem like a truthful man’s reaction. Maybe it’s just more of his not-ready-for-primetime, I don’t know. It just seems that there is a pattern with men in politics, and the vast majority have been proven to be predators of some kind, of different degrees. I have been watching these situations from afar since what, the Gary Hart affair c1984, and they generally turn out the same, especially when there are multiple women. Of course, Cain could be innocent, but his inability to get a clear message across is killing him.

From your posting history, your most recent pro-Cain post was Oct.13, and before that no pro-Cain posts which mention him by name going back as far as April 29.

You *do* appear to be a staunch Roman Catholic which is all to the good.

Cheers!

You have not made your case.

Cain has maintained the same thing this entire time - he was accused once that he knew of, but he didn’t do anything and they found the allegations unfounded. He didn’t know if the NRA settled when he was first asked, found out later they had.

The NRA’s statement on Friday completely confirmed Cain’s side of the story. The complaint was unfounded, she was let go with an agreement with no liability to the NRA and Cain was never party to any of the paperwork.

PLUS, the accuser worked in the governmental affairs division, and Cain was fighting government regulations as head of the NRA. Definite motive for false accusation.

If you don’t like Cain, fine, but don’t make up stuff to make your point.

Brietbart's site also confirms she voted in the Republican primary in 2008 and voted in the general. Was she planning to ambush Cain then too?

Illinois went on Super Tuesday so McCain, Romney, Huckabee and lesser candidates were ballot options.

What we know is she was at a Tea Party event Cain spoke at this year.

It sheds no light on her 1997 claim although documentation should exist regarding her travel, the dinner, the room upgrade, etc. I don't know if Cain denies they ever met.

If the objective facts match, Cain has no way to refute her claim. There are no witnesses when it's two people in a car. Does she have contemporaneous documentation? A police report, a letter, a court document, a medical record... this woman does not.

Two woman who have some historically documented allegations won't come forward. It's ridiculous.

Is Cain a Clintonian cad with more bimbo eruptions to come? Is this about race? Is this dirty politics? It maybe all of them or none of them.

I pray the truth ultimately prevails whatever it may be.

Per the Chuck Goudie/ABC story:

Who is Sharon Bialek? The Chicago-area woman has an extensive corporate and personal history in the area going back to the early 1990s.

It was her hope for a new job that Bialek says brought her to Herman Cain that day in 1997. Bialek’s resume and a trail of public records indicates that changing jobs has been a regular occurrence for the Chicagoan. She has worked for at least nine different employers over the past 17 years and appears to have struggled financially.

The public record on Bialek begins in 1991 when she filed personal bankruptcy for the first time while living in Des Plaines.

Between 1993 and 1996 Bialek worked for four different companies in promotion and marketing positions.

In 1996, and part of 1997, Bialek was at the National Restaurant Association. After being let go from that job in mid-1997, she says that she went to Washington, D.C., to meet with Cain, president of the association, because she needed a job.

In 1999, Bialek’s son Nicholas was born and a paternity lawsuit was filed by the father, a media executive.

In 2001 came Bialek’s second personal bankruptcy, filed after sizable legal bills. That year she was hired by WGN radio where she worked until 2004 when she took a marketing job and then a job at WCKG radio.

Along the way, according to her attorney, Bialek also held positions with Revlon and Easter Seals.

Bialek currently lives in Mundelein with fiance Mark Harwood.

“I thought the Tea Party was launched by Rick Santelli of CNBC in early 2009. So, how could this woman have attended a Tea Party gathering in 2006???”
You are right. The Tea Party Movement was launched in January and February of 2009 by the Young Americans for Liberty in New York State, protesting the first “Stimulus”
