Allred: Cain Offered Client 'His Idea of a Stimulus Package' Accuser In Picture Steps Forward)
Politico ^ | November 7, 2011 | Alexander Burns

Posted on 11/07/2011 3:32:47 PM PST by lbryce

The Herman Cain scandal finally has a name and a face.

Superlawyer Gloria Allred introduced her client, Sharon Bialek, at a press conference in New York on Monday afternoon, telling reporters that the woman formerly employed by the National Restaurant Association's educational arm had been subject to an unwanted sexual advance from the Republican presidential candidate.

Bialek, a Chicagoan, had raised money for the restaurant association before being terminated in 1997, Allred said. When she lost her job, Bialek reached out to Cain for help.

"Mr. Cain instead decided to try to provide her with his idea of a stimulus package," Allred said.

Bialek detailed Cain's sexual overture, explaining that he spent money on a palatial hotel suite for her at the time of their meeting. When they saw each other in the evening, Bialek said he put his hand on her leg, "reached for [her] genitals" and pushed her head toward his crotch.

When Bialek objected, Cain asked her: "You want a job, right?"

Bialek called on Cain to "come clean about what you did," saying: "Mr. Cain, I implore you, make this right."

Allred said her client is not filing a "lawsuit or claim" and has not been in touch with any of the other women who have accused Cain of personal misconduct.

Washington attorney Joel Bennett, who represents another Cain accuser, told POLITICO's Jonathan Martin that he had previously been in touch with a woman in Chicago who had been mistreated by Cain. But Bennett said he did not direct that woman to Allred, and "as of when I spoke to her [Sunday], she hadn't decided to go public."

Sorry, with these cast of characters I can’t take these claims seriously.

She claims Herman asked her “Why are you here?”

ROFL!!

That sounds like Herman...except the Herman I know does not have meeting with folks unless he know why BEFORE he actually meets with you....

And no court complaint.

Still a load of bovine excrement.

I doubt Cain was ever drunk enough to pursue her and I’m pretty sure no sober man ever has.

What’s the difference? None of the allegations have any foundation. This bimbo doesn’t intend to sue, what the hell legal standpoint does Allred have?

I believe the Hermancain, but ( you just knew there was a but) even if the left can’t stop him, and I don’t think they will, they have marked him as “damaged goods” and like George Bush, even if he wins the Presidency, he will be seen as unworthy by them.

Wow. They brought out the big Alred. She is the one who took down Meg Whitman. They really do not want a black conservative in the race. Cain is already going up against Obama and we are still in the primary.

Sure. Everyone was talking about “stimulus packages” in 1997.

Anyone who takes this seriously is too stupid to waste time on.

This woman left out of lot of detail to have such a great memory. She remembers what he was wearing and what she was wearing but all we hear is “He tried. I said ‘no’. He took me back to my hotel.”

Don’t guess there was any small talk at all. Such as “I came here to ask you to help me get a job. Since you tried to get me to screw you I guess that jobbie thing’s out of the question.” Then what did Cain say?

I understand the bimbo is a "single mom" did anyone ask her if she had ever bothered to get married.

I wish we could follow the trail of money in the Gloria Allred hits on Republican candidates, but I suspect it is so well cloaked that we will never be able to trace it.

Oh, how I hope and pray that Cain files suit against the woman AND Allred. She can’t prove one iota of this and the defamation is horrible. And I hope he calls Allred a racist.

I didn’t hear the interview. Did they actually use the term “stimulus package”?

I had never heard that term before Obama. That’s very suspicious.

I also hope Cain tells the real story and that’s that this broad came onto him and he turned her down then told her he wouldn’t reccommend her for anything.

I have the feeling something like that happened. Then she had to tell her boyfriend something so she turned the tables saying Cain hit on her. Just my hunch and I can “hunch” as good as any liberal can.

I watched the interview. Judging by her body language and the way her hair concealed almost half of her face I believe she is hiding something. Judging her by her words, I do not understand how Cain could have slipped a hand under her skirt AND pull her head down if they were both sitting in a car. If his left hand was lower his arms would be crossed, blocking her head from his waist. If his right hand was the lower hand, then he would be fighting the steering wheel with his shoulder and torso. IMHO there is either more or LESS to this story than she is saying.

Time to go to court for libel or slander or both, get the facts or lack there of, on the court record. At this point Cain has nothing to lose as far as I can see. the compliant press just keeps repeating, “reporting” the allegations. Make the C...S....... work for their money.

Yes- I just heard him make a point about her not telling her boyfriend the specifics about the so called incident. If that was my boyfriend he would have wanted to know what happened and if it went as she said it did he would have wanted to beat up Mr. Cain

Its a political hatchet job.

Conservatives dismiss it in two words: Gloria Allred!

The beyotch took down Meg Whitman with a carefully timed assassination.

Should we let her decide who our party’s nominee is going to be?

HELL, NO! F*ck that beyotch! Make sure Cain knows he has your support!

Absolutely agree with your statement-except for one point. Gloria Alred didn’t take out Meg Whitman. Meg Whitman took down Meg Whitman. Worst-candidate-ever.

Seems to me....if he was really interested in ‘getting some’....he wouldn’t CARE why she was there. He would simply exploit and take advantage of the fact that she WAS there.

This story smells worse than the average leftie OWSer.

Where was this "person" in 2004 when the man ran for the senate? Why now only as he takes the lead in the race? Why not when he started this campaign? Why Gloria Allred?

It adds up to character assination, exactly what dems do when they run out of ideas.
