Its hard to take a victim seriously when she laughs as she tells her story of victimhood. Even though her voice broke briefly during the most explicit parts of the public statement, Sharon Bialeks claims of sexual harassment by Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain were just another silly spectacle orchestrated by Americas most unscrupulous feminist attorney, Gloria Allred.
Why do I discount Bialeks story? Ill answer with a few questions of my own.
What was Bialek doing meeting Herman Cain in Washington, DC? What did she hope to achieve by a face-to-face meeting? If she were staying in New Jersey, why didnt she make it a daytime meeting, not an over night visit? Why do that with someone you know so slightly?
What was Herman Cain to think about a single woman making an unnecessary arrangement like thatagreeing to drinks and dinner on the basis of nothing more, according to her, than a few conversations at public dinners and receptions?
If Bialek were so traumatized and embarrassed, why did she eagerly seek him out at a recent Tea Party event in Chicago? Amy Jacobson, co-host of Morning Drive on WIND Chicago, was witness to that encounter with Cain and described her as hell bent on getting back stage to see him. Jacobson said Bialek cornered him and that her approach to Cain was flirtatious.
If you are embarrassed by a sexual encounter, you dont eagerly seek out the perpetrator to reconnect for a chat. Unless you think the harasser might someday be president and you are imagining the connections that might come from that.
Why did she so carefully include the buzzwords of a harassment lawsuit? Herman Cain was powerful, she said, in a position of authority over me. Bialek was shocked that he would use his power in this way. Does a sincerely abused person so carefully script her account? Were there certain words she wanted to use? This was not a court of law, but her statement was worded like a deposition. She even described the clothing they worestrange and unnecessary.
Why in one interaction did she say she was concerned for her thirteen-year-old son and the effect this would have on him and in another say she came forward because her son encouraged her to do so? Did she tell her son about Cains sexual advances? Why would she do that? Wouldnt that information be inappropriate and harmful enough to inflict on your young son without making it public?
Sharon Bialek has a history of financial trouble. She has filed for bankruptcy twice and charged a former boyfriend with harassment for trying to get her to pay back money he loaned her. A Chicago friend is quoted as describing her as a complete gold digger. When asked if she hoped to benefit financially from her fourteen-year-old accusation of Cain, she deftly replied, It was not my intention, eagerly adding that she had not paid Allred any fee for her services. One has to ask, who IS paying Allred?
This is a sordid and slimy accusation. Bialek can say anything and the media will print and reprint it regardless of its veracity. Allred gets another moment in the sun, more clients, and more money, and you can bet Miss Bialek will get something for her troubles as well. And the dirt will stick to Cain no matter his response.
Its telling that by her own account, she was not offended by Cains actions, only that he did what he did knowing she had a boyfriend. Are we to conclude it would otherwise have been fine?
Am I excusing Herman Cain? No. But if he did what she said he did and she in turn flirted inappropriately, it is NOT sexual harassment, it is what happens every day in our sex-obsessed, morally bankrupt culture.
If Cain did what she said he did, he is guilty of faithlessness to his wife, his family and the God he says he serves. If there is any credible basis upon which she can be believed, thats the criteria on which to judge Herman Cain.
This is the the ringer, bait for the MSM to sympathize with a obvious fraud.
Good. Need to see strong women calling out this crap for what it is. I can only do it here, not as a columnist. Enough is enough. Allred is despicable..and I hope Bialeck’s record speaks LOUDLY for itself. I do not wish them well.
Didn’t she also say that afterward, she “had him drive me back to my hotel”? Why did’nt she catch a cab if she’s so indignant and/or threatened?
Also, she was already fired. Cain was in no position of “power” over her. She sought Cain out - not the reverse; he didn’t call her and say “I understand you’ve been fired - why don’t you come to D.C. and we’ll discuss it.”
I’d love to get hold of the Hilton and ask what their policy is on “upgrade” requests that are not being made by the guest on whose credit card the room is reserved.
This whole thing reeks. Haven’t seen a shred of evidence to support her claim. Now that Cain’s hired an ace libel lawyer, this may get interesting.
As soon as I saw that Gloria Allred was involved I knew it was nothing but a scam, and it looks like I was right
I haven’t been able to watch the news with my children in the room all week. It’s getting ridiculous. Now with the Penn State issues, it’s even worse.
Yep. And I’ll bet one of the first things she did was check to make sure the Hilton couldn’t deny her version of events.
However, it would be interesting to call the Hilton and ask how you would go about upgrading another person’s reservation......
You know, I’d love for Kathleen Willey to resurface and tell her story about asking Allred for help after being groped by Clinton and not having her calls returned.
Because ALLWET is all about the fairness, doncha know?
I suspect that Alred put her up to this or at least provided lots of encouragement. Bialek has credibility problems. She would melt under hostile questioning. Alred is so partisan that she would gladly sacrifice Bialek to gain political points.
Here is what stood out like a blazing flag in this woman's press conference with Allred ... she urged Cain to admit what he had done, and then she said something like "admit that you have acted inappropriately with people".
Why would a woman that has no agenda other than her personal claims use the word "people" when making allegations and asking for apologies. This bothers me to no end and I haven't seen it mentioned in any articles.
I see no reason Mr. Cain would want to put a hit on this ugly cow.
Ms. Willey was on a local talk radio program this morning. She said she tried contacting Allred and her calls were not returned. She recounted what Bill did to her in the Oval Office. She said he practiced the line “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” over and over the night before he made his statement about Lewinsky, with the help of Hollywood producer/friend Harry Tomlinson.(sp?) She contrasted that with Cain’s direct delivery at the press conference yesterday. She talked about the animal skull appearing on her porch, the disappearance of her family pet cat, the odd appearance of a stranger at her isolated home talking about the cat and her children. She said every time Bill returned from being away, Hillary and Betsy Wright would find out who he had “spent time” with and would intimidate the women. Brought back alot of memories of the Clinton years. Made all of this look like small potatoes....And the American people elected Clinton twice.
Good article - wish it would have mentioned that she was originally fired from the NRA for making a false sexual harassment claim against her boss there. This woman is a serial accuser.
She is from Chicago and lives in the same apartment building as Axelrod.
People relax! Allred will do this for free. It is huge, free advertising!
Has that been confirmed? Last I saw, it was still an internet rumor.
I was listening to Z Top’s “Got Me Under Pressure” and when they got to “She likes cocaine and flippin’ out with great danes” I started laughing because THAT is the picture that popped into my head. I’m still laughing.
Grrr - Not Z Top, it’s Z Z Top.
Also, quite frankly there can be no proof, just hearsay.
i'm going to ignore this completely unless Cain makes an admission (he has denied these allegations) or whoever it is making allegations can prove them instead of just talking
