There is No 5th Cain Accusor
RedState ^ | 11-9-11 | Brookhaven

Donna Donella, 40, of Arlington, said the USAID paid Cain to deliver a speech to businessmen and women in Egypt in 2002, during which an Egyptian businesswoman in her 30s asked Cain a question.

"And after the seminar was over," Donella told The Washington Examiner, "Cain came over to me and a colleague and said, 'Could you put me in touch with that lovely young lady who asked the question, so I can give her a more thorough answer over dinner?'"

The AP is also falsely claiming a 5th woman has accused Cain of sexual harassment.

Being “suspicious of Cain’s motives” in why he wanted to set up a dinner is now harassment?

There is no #2, either. She's the same as #4.

Joel Bennett slipped up and referred to #2 as "Sharon from Chicago" at some point. When asked, Bialek wouldn't deny contacting Bennett, and her attorney Allred quickly changed the subject.

Having dinner I think would be normal for people in the RESTAURANT ASSOCIATION. It doesn’t necessarily mean he was trying to seduce her.

I had figured that out also, I was going to write a follow up tomorrow “There is No 4th Cain Accusor”.

It seems there are only 3, and at least two of them seem to be bogus.

So let me get this straight, inviting someone to dinner is harassment, but exposing your malformed genitalia to a subordinate is not?

This thing has smelled so coordinated, like it was all ran thru lawyers and strategists to spread the sleeze but not be able to really refute it. At the core there is no ‘there there’. It’s all shadow games.

Two of them won’t give their names or say what he did, one works for the Zero administration and also won’t say what he did, but claims she might and possibly in a joint presser with the other two. Tease and hint, but no presser forthcoming as of yet.

The fourth told the story in such a way as to make sure no one else could possibly confirm or deny. Fortunately she is completely uncredible and it still fell apart.

It’s all too scripted. I think they were hoping it would take off like wildfire and Cain be done before it was refuted.

Welcome to the Internet Age stupid MSM.

Did any of you hear that Obama hack talking to Jenna Lee about Iran a few minutes ago?

He sounds like Elmer Fudd?

He said Iran kind of has a Cain problem, stuff in their past...blah, blah... that takes away credibility...blah

No one on FOX ever stops a person like that and says, why did you bring Cain into this discussion, rather odd..

They are mounting an all out attack on Cain today.

There is no 5th Cain accusor, because no accusation has been made.

Does that matter to the MSM? Of course not. Their only desire is to continue the slow, steady drip of stories with suggestions based on someone's feelings or suppostions, none of which have any evidence behind them. They don't ask questions of any of the accusers, they simply report what they're told. Their intention isn't to completely destroy Herman Cain. They only want to bleed off enough supporters to affect a reduction in his standing in the race for the Republican nomination.

His standing in the polls will only be reduced if folks who had initially supported him fall for the breathless reportage of the MSM, and take these stories at face value without ANY evidence to support them.

This confirms there are only THREE complainants:

http://www.usatoday.com/news/politics/story/2011-11-08/herman-cain-accusers/51129758/1

Bialek - NRA Chicago employee fired - claim of meeting HC in Washington DC. Atty Gloria Allred

Kraushaar - NRA employee severance payment - employed by INS - now with Treasury Dept. Atty Joel Bennett

Anonymous - NRA employee severance payment - no more details.

So, there are really three, two of whom we have names for, and both of whom have a history of claiming harassment and/or filing complaints.

There’s no there there.

Perry would never have been accused except he has poor control of some of his peeps that work for him.

He had to get on CNN and join in.

Not to mention his supporters tweeting with glee prior to th actual news story.

Maybe he was too dumb to know he was being set up?

You know, it goes like that sometimes.

I think truth is that some women are so conceited and so insecure that they just assume EVERY man is after them. So, anything he says, any gesture is exaggerated in order to enhance these women’s “reputation” for being a “blonde bombshell” or other self-glorifying story or the other that they fancy themselves. Fact is, they generally aren’t as much “all that” as they fancy themselves. (Hence, their proclivity for following a powerful man around in hopes they’ll benefit financially. When they don’t, hell hath no fury like . . well, you know.)

I thought about leaving the wine part of her quote out. It’s obvious is was only stuck in to changed the subject from the actual accusation being made.

People read the whole quote, then get stuck on the wine thing at the end, so they never take the time to analyze the first part of the story. Really, and old style dirty trick.

This is all about getting Cain out of the race. The demorats see him as a threat. The question that has been raised is why did these women wait until now. We’ll never know how many times these women have filed claims hoping for a quick settlement.

Agree - I found the same USA Today report.

There are four accounts cited in the article - one of whom is Bialek - who did not file a complaint and a rumor of an anonymous employee who also did not file a complaint.

There are only two NRA employees who made some accusations and received a severance package; one of whom is Joel Bennets client - Kraushaar (sp?).

>>I’m not even sure there is a 4th accuser.<<

I thought that too, because I thought AP was reporting on Bennett’s 3rd contact, who now appears to have been Bialek, but apparently AP has found a separate source, so it looks like there are probably four women involved.

I’m moving into the camp that says Mark Block has been more of a hindrance than a help in all of this...like maybe he’s wearing one of those tinfoil hats? That would explain a couple of pretty serious gaffes he’s made since this all started, not to mention the fact that he should have better prepared Cain to handle the original story.

I don’t think anyone else has addressed this slimy, very subtle example of the way the LEFT demonizes, slants the news and misinforms the public. To wit: Does ANYONE really think that these two “ladies” were actually “stuck”, (ie on the hook for paying out of their own pockets), a dinner tab during some business related/sponsored boondongle trip?

The article’s wording certainly leaves the reader to reach that conclusion and SHAME on CAIN for committing such a repulsive financial assault on two defenseless, unsuspecting empowered working women!!!

Isn’t it odd how Satan can mess us up? What happened to “Who tipped off Politico? Who had the most to gain? Who knew?”

There was a post featuring Steve Anderson, a NRA operative who worked under Cain who knew about the false charges brought by a dame who was fired with severance pay (not a settlement!) Anderson was prime suspect because he was a Mitt Romney, a Mormon, supporter. He had recently given the Romney campaign a check for $1,000.00. So perhaps Anderson decided to help Romney along since his old boss was leading in the polls. Does Steve Anderson happen to be a Mormon?

Then there was Curt Anderson, who had headed up Cain’s run for the Senate a few years back. He knew. And Curt Anderson happens to work for the firm handling Perry’s current campaign! Hmmmmm.

And then Satan began to trot out a few lawyers, a few women, two of which have worked for the Federal government, whose boss is none other than Barack Obama!

My my! Now we have Gloria Alred into the story! With another bottle blonde who decided to get her l5 minutes.
Come to think of it, Sharon Blalek listed Adam Piper as one of her few friends. Adam Piper works for candidate Jon Huntsman, also a Mormon!

It is time to consider these clues! This entire debacle is politically motivated, and jubilantly fanned by the Evil Establishment! So let’s keep our eye on the ball!
No more double bogies!

This much is clear: The “most transparent administration ever” is hyper-allergic to sunlight and subpoenas.

——————————————————————————————Surely you jest. That is all old news and we have to move on so the man can concentrate on the people business, which he is working day and night on.

At least when he is not golfing.

Besides, the established standard is that it's competence that counts, not character.
