VIDEO: Cain addresses new sexual harassment allegations in interview with former ‘Man Show’ host
The Daily Caller ^ | 11/08/2011 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 11/08/2011 8:11:57 AM PST by martosko

After a fourth accuser stepped forward Monday with allegations of sexual harassment against embattled Republican presidential frontrunner Herman Cain, the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO went to the former co-host of “The Man Show” to issue his denials.

On the Monday broadcast of ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Cain admitted it was a rough day and that the new allegations from Sharon Bialek caught him off guard.

“Well, all things considered, I’m still alive. It got off to somewhat of a rough start. We were a little surprised to show up on TV … At least it wasn’t one of the many that have the first name anonymous,” Cain said. “So now this one actually had a name and a so we watched to see what it was and who it was and we are dealing with it and tomorrow we’re going to have a press conference.”

All the candidates better get ready.

If the Democrat political/media machine, with the help of certain GOP Establishment talking heads, can lynch Cain like this, who ever replaces him in the polls will get the same treatment.

It must have been a good interview for Cain. The headline goes after Kimmel’s past.
The douche bags just can’t report on the topic.
We never see headlines about how Barack was interviewed by Old Whores on the View.

I think they’re trying to lynch him, but I don’t think they are succeeding. These allegations just don’t matter to me, and I think that’s true of lots of voters. If he were accused of embezzling, or seeing prostitutes, or using drugs, or committing fraud, I’d be worried.

Sexual harassment is a joke. It’s exactly the kind of thing that can be used against any man in power you don’t like.

He’ll get through this. And all the idiots saying “Cain’s is fading” are wrong, dreaming

My new pet theory is that Mark Block just “punked” Gloria Allred, the MSM, and all the RINO turncoats. What better way would there be to end this slime attack... than to have a female acquaintance with a checkered past contact Gloria Allred and make some allegations that would “put a face” on this “scandal”... a psycho stalker face... Then after Herman Cain knocks this softball out of the park... she conveniently implodes and disappears from the political landscape. Where does that leave the scandal mongers?

I wish your pet theory were true but I doubt it.

This whore lived in the same building with Axlerod, and she’s clearly an Obama-owned whore.

It depends on how well the Obama stable of whores is trained to lie to an adoring media as to whether this is a “soft ball” for Cain or not.

I think Cain has to go after the source on this one, and to me the source is clearly Obama.

Ms. Bliar ick is a weird one. On the one hand she describes behavior that can only be labelled ‘barbaric’; proceeds to order Herman Cain to ‘come clean’ because of all the other (3) attacks - for which she has no proof or details.

She is sure there are others and yet, she still maintains an affection for him.

The woman is certifiable.

As Jonah Goldberg so wisely commented: Republicans ‘fall in love’ with their candidates - then they ‘fall in line’.

When discovered, your scenario would be more damaging to Cain than the original claims. Exponentially stupid.

This whole matter is very frustrating because there is no real evidence. Just these women’s claims of being made uncomfortable and the like.
Not to mention there was/is a cash escentive for ALL these women to say such things . Either way the MSM will run with it and distort the facts and create the image that Mr Cain is a preditor.
Even if Mr Cain is 100% inocent they have planted the notion in the average voters minds.
Mission accomplished!

Although,

You are probably right... the simplest explanation is always the most likely... she probably is just a psycho attention seeking stalker with a pattern of financial and credibility problems. In other words she is just another typical Gloria Allred client.

I don’t think it’s “settled science”.

Here’s a thread that I think is saying it is the same person:

“This whore lived in the same building with Axlerod”

That building is a high rise, there are probably hundreds of people living there. That’s a pretty thin “connection”.

Guess what? Axelrod’s son rented an apartment from my company. Oh, and Tony Rezko’s kid rented one from us too. I guess someone could connect the dots and say Obama owns me if they wanted to.

Not saying I believe this accuser; I have a gut feeling she is lying through her teeth. I’m just saying, there’s not enough there to associate her with Axelrod in any meaningful way.

It’s a strong enough connection to me.

If they can accuse Cain of sexual misconduct on the thin gruel THEY have, I can accuse Obama of conspiracy based on this connection.

Gloria Allred may be many things, but stupid is probably not one of them. Frankly, I don’t know what to believe.

In the attempted “lynching” of Herman Cain we see the insider DC political class (sadly both parties!) in a devil’s alignment to insure a Ronald (Renauldus Maximus) Reagan is NEVER allowed to ascend to the White House EVER again!! What is happening to Cain will also happen to any candidate not in the insider DC “club”. It may manifest in different ways (not always sexual harassment), but in some way the DC establishment/media destruction machine will strike! Such is our fight for the foreseeable future! We can help the fight by electing local and Congressional candidates who are conservative Tea Party patriots. That’s where the “revolution” began in 2010, and is a vital part of the overall struggle. If we ARE stuck with Romney, you MUST not stay home! The down ballot elections will become even MORE critical!!! GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Thanks, I was just on that thread and now I’m totally confused!

Guess will have to give this a little more time to weed out all of the details but it is starting to look like an obama smear job.

No, the different David Axelrod was the lawyer for the plaintiff in some legal action against her. The real David Axelrod really did live in the same high-rise that she lived in, though that really doesn’t mean anything. Heck, I don’t know most of the neighbors in the 30-unit walk-up that I live in.

Malkin was talking about the lawyer David J. Axelrod. David M. Axelrod lives at 505 North Lake Shore Drive. ( Listing ) Bialek admitted she lives there.

If you are correct, Mr. Cain or Mr. Block MUST make foreign policy!

If anything, it makes his supporters all the more vehement (as I am), because we know the source of these attacks.

I wouldn’t sweat this, because it is going to backfire. This check defaulted on her debts twice, including the ones she had with her lawyers and doctors. She’s got summary judgements against her in civil court.

She’s EXACTLY the type of predatory plaintiff the entire economy is suffering from, and that you are FORCED to maintain on your payroll once you’ve got her.

She’s the poster child for ‘Loser Pays’.

Here’s how this is going to spin:

“Fat, money grubbing whore tried knocking down a black GOP presidential candidate because she thought she could make money on the publicity somehow.”

Since there is no blue dress, and it is ‘he said, she said’, everyone on the right (who isn’t establishment GOP) and in the middle who are SICK of this sort of crap is going to think, “There but for the grace of God go me - anybody can just walk up and say, “He tried to grope me” and your whole life could be over. Not the kind of America I want to live in.”

I say he goes up in the polls next week.

I’m shocked Palin hasn’t stepped up yet and said, “This is what they do. I had some guy peeking over my fence for six months and all I could do was get a variance and build a bigger fence. I had to go out of pocket to get the privacy back most of you all take for granted.

It’s going to get worse. No Democrat gets subjected to this.”

I'm more optimistic than you are. I don't think we will be stuck with Romney.

But otherwise, I do agree with your post. Well said.

Yes, it is a big coincidence, but at least at this point, I think that’s all we can call it.
