Mark Levin pokes holes in Cain accuser’s story
The Right Scoop ^ | 11-07-11 | The Right Scoop

Posted on 11/07/2011 9:52:20 PM PST by Lazlo in PA

Going through the story that was laid out in the press conference today by Sharon Bialek, Levin has found a few ‘problems’ that necessitate more information. He said earlier in the show that he was unable to get Gloria Allred to book her client on his show, so he’s basically left with just questions that need answers. One such question is why, after Cain had already ‘upgraded’ Bialek’s hotel room and then took her out to eat at an Italian restaurant would Cain then ask Bialek why she was meeting with him. Another question would be why he took her to the NRA to show her around if she had already worked there before? And there’s more.

Levin makes clear he’s not suggesting one way or the other the potential outcome of this story, who is guilty and who isn’t, but that he just believes her story doesn’t quite make sense and thus he would like to ask her a few questions.

Audio at link.

Mark nails this. This woman's story and actions don't make any sense. This woman needs to have a lot of her claims and bona fides investigated.

Allred will NEVER let the accuser go off script. No questions for her, just reading prepared statements.

Apparently you missed the CNN interview tonight.

Cain is a reflex liar... And he's dead.

Another question would be why he took her to the NRA to show her around if she had already worked there before?

She worked for the NRA Educational Foundation (or, "NRAEF") which is a separate organization from the NRA itself, presumably for tax purposes. From the website, it looks like the NRAEF is based in Chicago, whereas the NRA is based in DC.

****************************************
She didn’t work at NRA headquarters in DC.

She worked National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation
http://www.nraef.org/
175 West Jackson Boulevard, Suite 1500, Chicago, IL 60604-2814. 1.800.765.2122, or in Chicagoland 312.715.1010

She knew of Cain through NRA events.
*snip*

Bialek, a Republican, said she had met the charismatic Cain at several restaurant association events.

She said Cain was charming and attentive to both her and her boyfriend at these events, so when she was fired from her job, her boyfriend suggested Bialek reach out to Cain.

Maybe Cain did all these things that people are saying he did. Maybe not. I just can’t believe that anyone cannot see what is really going on here. It’s the “seriousness of the charges” that matter, after all. Even Medved and Hewitt are saying pretty much the same thing. I am really sickened by it.

Right, as if Gloria Allred will allow this individual to be cross-examined in any media at all. Not a chance in the world. She is meant to be a sympathetic face telling a story.

If people don't vote for Cain because of these unsubstantiated, unprovable rumors, then we don't deserve our country back. We deserve leaders like Obama and his ilk.

More and more I'm convinced that Medved is outing himself as someone who's been playing a role for the last 20 years--a hard-leftist pretending to be a conservative. He does come from leftist stock after all and was a lefty in the 1960s. He's also too smart not to see through Mitt Romney like 10 year old underpants.

Therefore, I think he sees in Romney a chance to neuter the Republican party as a vehicle for conservatism forever. And he's in a position to convince conservatives to commit ideological suicide.

May his audience shrink to oblivion. *spit*

How did Cain know what hotel/motel she was staying at and how could he upgrade her room without permission from the person, her boyfriend according to her, who booked it? No hotel/motel would go along with that. According to her he didn’t even know why she was there until they were at the restaurant.

Think about this one. As a result of taking her boyfriend's advice, she gets sexually assaulted. She comes back and tells her boyfriend. And to assuage his own guilt for sending her to her own attacker, he does nothing? Yeah, right.

Regardless of which NRA office Bialek worked at, WHY WOULD CAIN PULL HIS CAR UP TO H-I-S OFFICE AND START TRYING TO FOOL AROUND WITH A WOMAN RIGHT OUTSIDE THE BUILDING HE WORKED AT?

SOMEBODY COULD EASILY HAVE SPOTTED CAIN’S CAR AND NOTICED HIM SITTING THERE, MAKING OUT WITH A BLONDE IN HIS CAR.

IS THAT THE IMPRESSION HE WANTED TO GIVE NRA EMPLOYEES? THE MARRIED HEAD OF NRA “MAKING OUT” WITH CHICKS IN HIS CAR, RIGHT OUTSIDE HIS OFFICE?

IN ALL OF D.C. THE MOST SUBTLE PLACE TO HOOK UP WITH CHICKS IS RIGHT OUTSIDE THE OFFICE WHERE HE’S IN CHARGE OF EVERYTHING? I’M NOT BUYING THIS.

This woman has a very checkered past. If anyone is lying, this broad is. Bill Kurtis worked with her at CBS in Chicago and was interviewed. He basically said she has a bad reputation around the station and Cain shouldn’t worry, it will come out soon. Here is the link to the 10 minute interview.

Very worth the time.

I don’t think he’s playing a role. But I do think the old attraction to big government from those days still flickers inside him. The power just needs to be wielded more effectively, that’s all.

As for Romney, I have no problem if someone thinks he has the best chance to beat Obama. Just make your case, and make legitimate critiques of Cain’s handling of these accusations. I think that’s fair. Piling on is just giving comfort to the enemy who’ll use the same tactics in the general election soon enough.

The only hotel that fits her description (two blocks from the White House) is the Willard House. Suites there range from $500 to $1,700 per night, plus taxes. Cain forked out that much cash for a woman who was with her boyfriend? Yeah, right.

Obviously the fact that Hewitt wrote a book titled “A Mormon in the White House?” is a tip off. But Medved has been the worse offender.

And then he fumbles the pickup with a clumsy neanderthal move in the car after the well thought out set up of drinks, nice dinner, charming conversation and room upgrade? ROTFLMAO

And of course when she says WTF? he just says "okey doke" and kindly drives her back to his expensive suite and drops her off.

I think the question is -if he paid that much money for her upgrade, why the heck would be trying to do it in the car when he had a luxury suite?

Ahhhh, that makes more sense, now...

I feeling pretty hopeless earlier then, I read what Bill Kurtis had to say. I'm feeling a whole lot better now!

This has made me see, though, that I need to be more involved. I was asked to help out with the Cain campaign for my neck of the woods. I thought being in charge was too much work for me to handle but, I think now I'll do it. I'd feel horrible if I didn't do all I could.

Yes. It’s either a potentially cheating husband herman Cain, or Obama. Who also cheats. With men. That is your choice here, moderates and conservatives and independents. Romney may be a faithful husband but he wont beat Obama.

They tried to get Cain last week. It backfired. Now they are trying harder. Will we give up the fight?

Actually they would go along with it if Cain knew the management. It wasn’t far from the offices and it’s possible the NRA used the hotel.

I worked in 4-5 star hotels for 30 years. We got these request all the time and accomodated.

Between Mark Levin taking apart the story (he says this is why you get details, to take the story apart) and Bill Kurtis taking apart the history (of Sharon Gypsy-Tramp-and-Thief) Herman Cain benefits from Death Star blowback once more.

Thanks for the correction. That puts the hotel closer to the NRA HQ than the White House. She could easily have walked.

You guys do realize that this is going to keep coming till they sink Cain. Even if they all get debunked the energy the media will use (with tacit support from others in the GOP) to keep the stories about Cain to three things:

1) Cain responded to an earlier allegation.
2) Cain is ignoring an earlier allegetaion.
3) Wow! Here is yet another allegation! That makes seventeen for Cain! Roundtable for half an hour with four talking heads about how he is sunk!

People in Iowa will turn on him after a certain point. The only chance Cain has is to somehow get some hard evidence linking a rival campaign or the DNC to a pay-out or a total fabrication of one or more of the stories. If he can do that he’ll be bullet proof, otherwise I’m afraid it will be time to pick a new anti-Romney.

I don't believe so. Base voters have been to this rodeo enough times that we all can smell MSM BS. Adding Allred into the mix just takes the cake. A couple debates and a new news cycle and no one will care.

The individual women are all pawns and we should focus on exposing conclusively who is bank rolling this witch hunt. Romney? Perry? Obama? All of the above?

Cain has been famous all year it was only when he started to threaten, and then subsequently took, the front runner position that these women came forward? No. I know the timing of waiting years is weird but the timing of waiting until the past few weeks is much weirder.

The problem for Democrats is that not even one of these women can be a plant, or Cain is inoculated on this issue. Thanks, Gloria!

Also, this trick should only work once. Team Obama already had an operative violate a court order to leak Ryan’s divorce records the last time he had a conservative challenger (Senate race).

you said she “told”. She did not. Replay the statements.

She said she DID NOT MENTION THE DETAILS to anyone.

So, it could have been as innocuous as “I met Herman at the hotel”. THis is the reason we need to question her, and the two “people”.

I am interested in why you jump to guilt so fast, as the other allegations have proven to be much ado about nothing (and they won’t even come forward,even though they are no longer legally bound).

DO you not think the left capable of dirty tricks? Recall the ANG documents they forged on Bush?

As far as I’m concerned, that line was crossed with Allred - I’m not about to let her tell me who I cannot support.

The only time I ever got upgraded was in DC. My room wasn’t ready when I arrived and had to wait a bit.

When I went to the desk, the guy thanked me and said we’re upgrading you for your patience. They had 7 suites and I got one of them - truly awesome.

She could have done some name dropping - I’m down here to see ‘X’ when she checked in and they upgraded her - if that part is true at all. If she has no qualms calling him about a job - dropping his name for any reason is within the range for her.

If Mark can’t get his own questions answered, perhaps he can get mine answered!

She lives in Chicago and out of work. Her boyfriend’s parents live in NJ and he comes up w/the idea for her to ask Cain about a job.

She calls him and tells him she was let go and he said he didn’t know that. Why did she feel the NEED to take a trip to DC to ask him about seeking work for her? Why didn’t she ask him on the phone?

And since she wasn’t working - they arrange a trip to her boyfriends parents - from Chicago to NJ - and she takes a bus to DC. And her boyfriend pays for her room. All this money and time spent (being out of work) for something that could have been taken care of when she got him on the phone?

It’s no wonder Cain may have asked ‘what are you here for’? WTF? Her boyfriend says Cain was impressed w/her - so he’ll pay for her to go to DC for a cup of coffee w/him to see if he can help you? Right. The boyfriend knew what he was pushing for - climb the ladder however you can. I wonder if that boyfriend is the one with the paternity suite - her son is 13 years old.

Anyway - why did she feel the NEED to go to DC for a cup of coffee to ask him about a job? What was she looking for that she couldn’t get with a phone call asking the same thing?

Well the real issue for me is why would a married executive ever take a dinner meeting with such an unimportant person? It just doesn’t happen...at best she is a possible lunch invite with a group so she can pitch her job need...but a full on meeting and dinner date with upgraded hotel? The whole premise is nonsense...I doubt that most busy executives have schedule time for Sharon from Chicago...
