Woman accuses Cain of bold sexual advance [ 2 bankruptcies yes 2 ]
AP ^ | Nov 7 2011 | AP

Posted on 11/07/2011 4:57:09 PM PST by NoLibZone

Leaving little to the imagination, a Chicago-area woman on Monday accused Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain of making a crude sexual advance more than a decade ago when she was seeking his help finding a job.

"Come clean," Sharon Bialek challenged Cain at a news conference in New York at which she described herself as "a face and a voice" to support other accusers who have so far remained anonymous.

Cain's campaign swiftly denied Bialek's account. "All allegations of harassment against Mr. Cain are completely false," it said in a written statement.

[snip]

Court records indicate Bialek had financial difficulties a decade ago when she filed for bankruptcy protection and reported $4,500 in unpaid rent and $13,000 in outstanding credit card bills.

Current property records show she owns a house on an acre of land in a Chicago suburb.

In 1999, Bialek’s son Nicholas was born and a paternity lawsuit was filed by the father, a media executive. This is more than a year after the alleged incident and 5-6 years into her marriage.

I seem to remember allegations made against Obama too, however, the media ignored them. Why didn’t that man’s allegations make national news?

"I consider sexual harassment the No. 1 problem in the workplace," she told the AP in an interview last week. "It denies equal opportunity in the workforce. If (women) don't protest it, they'll have to continue to suffer."

So of course she voted against Clinton and Gore. /sarc

Yeah, I'm sure financial incentives had nothing to do with her coming forward to bravely tell her story to the media, with Gloria Allred standing right beside her.

Can someone please tell Gloria the Red that Precious was not employed at the time? Cain could not have been her boss, and could not be guilty of workplace sexual harassment.

Exactly. What took place, even according to the Left is a private matter. Its no one else’s business. Its just sex and there is nothing to see here and its time to move on.

The more I think about this “campaign” to discredit Cain the more I thing it is fairly advanced in planning and has been thought out.

OK - take the “lady” being represented by Gloria Alred - a pariah to most of us - but think about it. She is always on the Nancy Grace show and many Nancy Gracers know her (or think they do). If they can take 10% of the female vote away from Cain that eats into his fairly slim lead.

At first I thought Alred was only there because of camera facetime - now I’m thinking she may be there as part of a plan.

Is this you Rove? You magnificent slime ball?

Bialek is a walking lawsuit magnet. And I can’t imagine why Allred would take on a client who can’t even pay her bills. What she gets on welfare isn’t enough to pay Allred’s six figures lifestyle.

Be advised the political landscape is littered with the corpses of Allreds victories over republicans going all the way back to Bruce Hershenson.

This Piraña doesn’t let go, is not limited to the truth and will take Cain down as easily as she took Meg Whitman down.

Sad to say but true. Our only option is to get Sarah back in the race or else Romney will be the last man standing and the nominee

She’s trying to yank the chain of the Right, these reputed sexual puritans. Trouble is, today’s sexual puritans do not usually believe in witch hunts. They want some proof or at least an account that holds water before waggling their fingers at Herman Cain. Neither of these has been produced to date.

According to the Chicago Tribune the skank’s been living with a john named Harwood for the last four years. For the last two, they have been living in “an upscale” home in Mundelein, Ill. Harwood reportedly is from “London”, and works in the “medical equipment industry.” In the picture supplied by the ChiTrib the red-faced guy appears half-drunk. By the time this is over, and his immigration status is checked, I’ll bet he wishes he never met the woman.

If Cain committed adultery, he’d be disgraced. But I think they would have audio recordings, pictures, videos - something objective and that can’t be disputed. And I think the Left will keep digging.

Inglorious Allred just took a bite of something larger than she could chew in Herman Cain. Cain has boldly called her bluff. This Piranha will shortly need the Heimlich maneuver.

The two BKs means that she CANNOT handle money...so when someone drags a $100 bill in front of her, she will certainly do what it takes to snatch it.

Even if that weren’t the case, my vote and my money stay with Cain UNTIL I hear details of his past felony conviction. Anything less, and he meets my standards for president, as I set them at the same level as Clinton’s supporters. In other words, I WILL NOT PERMIT the media to tell me who I should and should not vote for.

So it’s CAIN ALL THE WAY...until that felony conviction comes in (as if it will).

If you do a search on FReeper struggle, he (or she) has been doing a ton of research and finding the most incredible links about this woman's past history, lawsuits, lovers, and has links to all of it.

The guy she was embroiled in a paternity suit with, West Naze, is the Executive VP of a subsidiary of News Corp, which also owns Fox News. The suits and countersuits between the two of them went on for many years. It must have been quite acrimonious. Which makes it even more ironic that her current fiancee (with whom she has been cohabiting for a few years without benefit of marriage) has "friended" West Naze on facebook.

Oh, and just a small point of interest, Allred claimed in the presser that this woman is a registered Republican. There’s a link on that same thread I referenced in previous post that shows the woman is, in fact, not registered to vote.

Paternity suits of this kind (to prove you ARE the father of a child born to a woman married at the time to somebody else) are quite rare and would suggest an unusual reason. He’s clearly not worried about being overcome by child support issues. Perhaps he wants to adopt the child.

If it were nearly ANYONE other than Allred who brought this skank forward I would attempt to believe it. But Gloria has used up all her cred over the years peddling Feminist PC crap, so, in my opinion, she’s outta’ gas!

It would be interesting to know the outcome of the paternity test by the HUSBAND of this new “victim” and whether the child really DID belong to the HUSBAND or to SOMEONE ELSE!

Whatever it is, I think it's bad advice for Cain to simply ignore or blame the media for these charges.

I hope these charges are not true. But if it's not true, then Cain should be able to successfully show some kind of facts that counter the lies.

However, if any of this were true the best thing Cain could have done from the get go would have been to belly up, admit the wrong doing, and show that he's changed his heart and actions. But we're now down the road of denial. I hope this stuff isn't true but if any of it is, at this point, I think he's got a problem.

Too bad for the Rats that Bill Clinton lowered expectations of politicians’ personal morality by about an order of magnitude during his tenure in the White House. It’s a little too late for them to try to raise that bar again. In fact the way the story of this little alleged “consensual” tryst is playing out makes Herman Cain look virtually like an angel. If Cain did even that much, and he’s flatly denying it. He certainly has had the time to get the story straight by now, so the gauntlet clearly has been hurled down at mach speed.
