Herman Cain goes on the attack against Sharon Bialek (Who is financing and buying her rise?)
Los Angeles Times ^ | 11/8/11 | Kim Geiger

Posted on 11/08/2011 1:41:09 PM PST by NormsRevenge

Sharon Bialek is learning firsthand why the other three women who have accused Herman Cain of sexual harassment may have resisted going fully public with their claims.

The Chicago-area woman, whose name and face was broadcast all over American television Monday as she described being groped 14 years ago by the Republican presidential hopeful, has a past. And after making herself the first – and as of yet, the only – accuser whose name has been made public, that past is being dug up.

“Who is Sharon Bialek?” is the subject line of the latest email from Cain’s presidential campaign, which has struggled for the last week to deliver a consistent and convincing response to the harassment allegations.

“As Ms. Sharon Bialek has placed herself in the public spotlight through making patently false allegations against Herman Cain, it is only fair to compare her track record alongside Mr. Cain’s,” the email says.

The email lists six court cases in which Bialek’s name appears as a defendant, and states that Bialek filed for bankruptcy in 1991 and 2001. It also cites TV news reports that Bialek was sued “over a paternity matter” in 1999 and that she “has worked for nine employers over the last 17 years.”

“The questions should be – who is financing her legal team, have any media agreed to pay for her story, and has she been offered employment for taking these actions?” the email concludes.

Cain campaign spokesman J.D. Gordon defended the tactic.

I wouldn’t doubt that Allwet is doing this pro-bono in order to further the leftist cause.

Clinton has a machine, Cain does not. You know my mom said when I was young, “you can be anything you want, you can be President when you grow up.” Its so untrue. They are all chosen for us already. Our future is set

Also, the question of who is financing these attacks on Cain causes me to wonder if it might be a Republican causing this problem? Would Rove/Romney or the rest of the RINO camp go this far to shoot down a conservative?

I don’t think I have any particular ability to tell when someone is lying but every now and then it is clear.

When I saw her on TV with Gloria Totallyred, there was no doubt in my mind at all.

The Los Angeles Times does not believe that Herman Cain has a right to defend himself.

She brings up a story and Herman Cain is not allowed to??

This thing is starting to boomerang on Soros, the MSN, and the Dems.

If it is played right, this could very well garner sympathy support for Cain. It has already increased his visibility ten fold.

I wondered that too, until someone reminded me that this is SOP for Obama. He did exactly the same thing to Jack Ryan, so that Obama only had to face a weak Republican candidate in the US Senate election.

Even back in the IL state senate election, Obama used underhanded tactics to remove candidates from the ballot, clearing the way.

Facing Cain in the general election next year would be Obama’s worst nightmare. Eliminating the candidate most likely to beat him is exactly what I would expect.

Herman Cain is TOO Black and TOO Conservative....both the left and the moderate right are terrified of this American. Who is paying that blonde and how much to get her to tell such a lie?....Gloria Allred has been hired by someone and it ain't that ditzy, broke, lying blonde.

I wish Herman Cain would just say being Black and a Conservative is pure poison to anti-America and throw this accusation back in their faces.

All of the ‘rats and a good portion of the GOP are elitists.

Allred will too. Allred wanted to mentor and guide her, but the woman keeps going ‘off script’ and saying wild and stupid things. She is embarrassing Allred.

By the end of the week, ‘crazy woman’ will be on her own. Count on it.

They’re perfectly legitimate questions. Why is she coming forward now? Who paid for her? More important, who paid Democratic operative Gloria Allred to hold yesterday’s presser?

Of course, the MSM will ignore all that. As far they are concerned, its “blaming the victim.” And Cain can do no good in their eyes.

I don’t think the founders would have been surprised about political dirty tricks.

The disappointing factor would be how one sided the press is.

The Ol’ Huillary approach.. ‘I don’t recall.’ ;-)

Herman Cain said in ABC/Yahoo interview he doesn’t remember latest accuser
http://news.yahoo.com/presidential-candidate-said-abc-yahoo-interview-doesnt-remember-195233486.html

Herman Cain today said that Sharon Bialek, the first woman to publicly accuse the GOP presidential candidate of sexual harassment, is a liar and that he can’t remember ever meeting her.

“I have had nothing but the utmost respect for any and all women as well as those who have worked under my leadership,” Cain told ABC News’ Jonathan Karl in the ABC News/Yahoo Newsmakers interview. “I can categorically say I have never acted inappropriately with anyone, period. And as far as these latest charges… I reject all of those.”

Cain said the charges are “baseless” and “bogus” and that the accusations are an attempt from his opponents to derail his candidacy.

“When I first saw her [Bialek]… I didn’t even recognize her,” Cain said. ”I am honestly telling you I can’t even recall knowing her back then.”

When asked if Bialek was lying, Cain replied, “Yes, I’m saying that as nice a way as I can.”

“Mama Mama. Where is my pa?”
“Off to the White House. Ha Ha Ha!”

Press has never been very nice to the people they didn’t like. Back in those days it was a partisan press - nowadays the partisan press likes to make a pretense of objectivity - but it is only pretense.

According to Bialek, Cain seemed to remember her and appeared “uncomfortable.”

Now there's a hard hitting piece of investigative journalism by the LAT.

"According to the accuser, the accused "seemed' to remember her and "appeared" "uncomfortable".

Can't get any more objective than that.

Hey, what about this....She was out of a job in ‘97 living in Chicago and get’s Cain on the phone. Why the NEED to travel to him for a cup of coffee - when she could have very easily asked him on that same phone call about her needing a job? Lots of money spent to ask someone for a job - no wonder he asked ‘what are you here for’? The money and time spent arranging the details to get to DC - just to ask for something that could have been asked on the phone? Riiight!! - what was her boyfriend suggesting - climb the ladder however you can? And it didn’t work - so she figured she’d polish it up NOW to make it work somehow as she is out of work, again. Her intentions weren’t pure back then and they aren’t pure now, IMO.

I asked the same question yesterday when I found out she was out of a job, again, and came from Chicago to NY for a TV presser to ask Cain to do the right thing. LOL! How pathetic - how does this not scream of 'dirty politics'. Out of a job and traveled to DC, also. I guess she has to wait until the phone is invented to carry out her 'sincerity' and 'job hunting' skills.

As far they are concerned, its “blaming the victim.”

But who is this meant to victimize - if it's not Cain.
