Wow - what a compilation of comments. DU'ers thank you.
Haha, I don’t know what to say.
What about benefit of the doubt?
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.
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.

9. Thou shalt not bear false witness.
All I can say is, God cares about the means, as much as the ends.
Which is what I said. Thanks.
You ever watch Big Bang Theory because you sound just like Sheldon Cooper :)
Maybe they can start with this - she was a party to a court case in Illinois - check it out before it’s scrubbed and notice another interesting name in the document..
To answer your question why? She’s being paid by another campaign TO GET RID OF HERMAN.
EXACTLY! Anyone else in? Anyone know a good one?
“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”
Someone mistyped the year
Don’t accuse me of lying. I am saying what I believe and/or know, based on what has happened.
