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).

Cain said recently that he hasn't canceled one scheduled appearance over this farce—got to stick to it now no matter what.

“I don't think that's smart .. at all.”

I agree. Hope he reconsiders.

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.

I know .... eeek .. now I’m torn.

I guess he’s got to go in strong
and finish this battle, one way
or the other, and to h*ll with
the media. They’re gonna skewer
him no matter what.

God bless him .. please, bless this
country.

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.

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.
