Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain will hold a press conference in Scottsdale Tuesday in response to recent allegations of harassment.

According to a statement from the Cain campaign, Cain will hold to the conference at the Scottsdale Plaza at 3 pm.

*snip*

“I know what happened, and he knows what happened,” Bialek said on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight. “One of my whole objectives was to give him the opportunity to come forward, to redeem himself, say, ‘Hey, I’m sorry. I did this. It happened. And let’s move forward.’ And it is unfortunate. I’m very disappointed that he didn’t take the lead in this.”

She said in the interview that she was prepared for an expected media onslaught, but was more concerned about how it would affect her teenage son

Herman Cain still plans to appear on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ Monday night

~~~

I don't think that's smart .. at all. Kimmel's a total jokester and double entendre-slanted .. Cain'll just be the butt of his barbs before he's had a serious presser about it .. not good.

Which is it? Some say he should not cancel, you say he shouldn't go? No matter what Cain does it will be the wrong thing?

Much Horsesh*t

Then the story tomorrow morning will be Cain is hunkering in his bunker. I have faith that Cain can more than easily handle himself with Kimmel. He shut BOR’s bloviating.

So she was booked immediately on CNN. She’s concerned about the effect on her son? First of all, why would it affect him? Second, if it does it’s her fault.

She’s now trying to say she did this for Cain.

I don’t care even if he did do it. Everyone’s entitled to one free grope. I now believe in order to win this battle for this country we’d better be just as dirty as the enemy. And we’d better start today.

Sexual harassment isn't a bad thing for a liberal -- it is respected by the MSM. It is only bad if Conservatives are accused (truth be damned).

I don’t understand her demands for an apology. IF something happened, she clearly threw herself at him and should be the one apologizing. I say this as a woman who has worked in male-dominated fields my entire life.

I have a friend, who has a friend, who has a friend who has a girlfriend who has friend who has an older sister who Herman Cain made feel uncomfortable in the mid 1990’s. He really needs to come clean about this.

Does any one know where the alleged groping took place?
Was it in a restaurant, or in a car? I surmise it was not in a hotel room since Bialek said he took her to her hotel.

He will have to be VERY careful how he “handles” this situation. I’m sure he’ll be ok.

Herman Cain is fearless!

He may be but I wonder how his wife Gloria is holding up. At minimum she's realizing how underhanded politics can be. At worse?

Hopefully these smears won't effect their marriage. They look like a great couple.

Isn't that pretty much the exact same thing the DUmmies said about Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey and Juanita Broaddrick?

It sure sounds like she instigated the contact. But why did he, if true, upgrade her room? Why go out and not know what she wanted? Why drinks then dinner?

Again, if true. But it’s starting to seem Cain might have a habit of being too nice to younger ladies while he’s married.

There is compassion and then there is stupidity. As Billy Graham once said, he never put himself in a position, ever, to be alone with a female. Not even in an elevator, he’d get off.

I pray this is truly crap and it will backfire on the left.

Some questions to ponder:

Did this attention whore file a police report? If so, where is the report?

Did she file a complaint with the National Restaurant Association? If not, why not?

IF (as she claims) she "had a boyfriend" (and how many has she had?) why didn't she tell HIM, and why isn't HE stepping up to corroborate her claims? (and more importantly, why didn't he track down Cain and at least TRY to smack him around for hitting on his girlfriend, IF it even happened at all?).

And in other 'news' from yesterday, one of the many comments from readers/viewers stated that Bill Kurtis (of 'American Justice', who recently joined WLS-AM radio's 'Roe & Roeper Report') that this story would be changing over the next few days as this Bialek broad is well known around the Chicago area and Kurtis reportedly said words to the effect of "I can easily see their roles swapped in that car" and suggested that the Cain campaign should take it easy as new information about this 'accuser' comes out.

I still think Cain should get the hotel records from the night in question, and see if it shows that he upgraded anyone’s room.

What ever happened to the stank ho Tiger Woods groupie Gloria represented a few months ago? Did she file any legal briefs or do any work?

Thousands of unemployed law school grads with student loans and she gets paid for standing next to bimbos at press conferences.

Thread and audio of Bill Kurtis (CBS News, investigative reporter) saying this lady has a history, lots of news to come out about her, and telling Cain to just sit back and wait because this woman has a background that will make her very hard to believe and the press will have it shortly.

Yes, I saw him, and he was excellent. Made me want to tune in to the press conference tomorrow.

Kimmel was very fair to him—didn’t give him “the treatment”. Audience reaction was far better than I thought it would be.

Cain lost my vote when he stated that there were no sexual,harrassment settlements, then backtracked and said there were...his credibility was gone at that point.

Welcome to FR.

We're careful to deal in facts here.

Cain never signed the "settlement agreement for the termination of the employee" of which "sexual harassment" was not any part of her termination from the company.
