Cain accusers Bialek, Kraushaar planning joint news conference
WaPo ^ | 11/09/2011 | James V. Grimaldi

Posted on 11/09/2011 12:38:32 PM PST by Responsibility2nd

Two women who allege they were sexually harassed by presidential hopeful Herman Cain have agreed to hold a joint news conference so they can air their stories together, the attorney for one of the women said.

Joel P. Bennett, who represents 55-year-old federal employee Karen Kraushaar, said he was planning the news conference with Gloria Allred, who represents Chicago homemaker Sharon Bialek, 50.

Details of the joint appearance have not been worked out

I've checked all my TV listings, but I can't seem to find the Trailer Trash Network. Maybe these skanks can go on The View.

So, one woman with a history of making charges against the companies she works for and then trying to get big dollar settlements, schooling and a promotion and raise out of it...and another woman with a history of bankrutcies, assetts being seized, IRS troubles, paternity suits, etc. are going to have a joint presser firming up their 13 year old allegations against Herman Cain.

Allegation which in one case were raised at the time and found to be baseless, and the other never spoken of until now?

Both of which Herman Cain has categorically denied?

I hope Cain’s lawyer rips allred, bennett and their clients a new one. He should indicate that any more baseless, foundationless liable will face a seven figure lawsuit for each of them.

Then Cain should simply refer to his latest press conference and keep on campaigning.

As I’ve said on another thread, the only reason for these gold-diggers to get together physically is to get their stories straight so they can present a “consistent” pattern of behavior. The press conference is both cover for that activity and a way to start pumping out the results of that collusion.

Here’s hoping Andy Breitbart is in attendance, although I doubt they’ll be letting any conservative journalists in there.

Wonder if CNN will be asking either of them if they’ll be willing to take a lie detector test.

You know, maybe Cain’s new lawyer should hold a press conference. Bring in employees from the NRA to talk about what they know about these two.

And since there’s no confidential agreement about Bialek, the NRA can broadcast the circumstances under which she was terminated — I’ve read elsewhere it was for filing false sexual harassment allegations but don’t know if it’s been debunked yet.

Joel P. Bennett, who represents 55-year-old federal employee Karen Kraushaar

So now we're down to three accusors.

I've already written that there is no 5th Cain accusor here: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2804846/posts . The story she tells isn't one of harassment of any kind, just getting stuck with a wine bill.

Bennett has been saying he was representing a new 3rd accusor, but the fact is he was representing one of the original two anonymous accusers.

So, what we actually have:

  1. One still anonymous accuser from the original story.
  2. Karen Kraushaar - the #2 anonymous accuser for the original story
  3. The Gloria Allred accuser

That's it. There are 3, not five. People counting five are counting Kraushaar twice and including the non-harassment story.

"Details of the joint appearance have not been worked out"

That's because they both have to sit down with Allred to get their stories straight. Maybe they'll both announce that they're batting for the other team, munching carpets.

Cain’s attorney ought to file a cease and desist on them and say if you hold a press conference each of your clients will be sued for seven figures and possible gains made from these allegations. Allred and Bennett want free PR but I don’t think they want to waste time on a possible serious litigation that will cost them money and no possible resolution for quite a while. Allred wants to prance around look concerned so the deed and go home with little money expended. If a lawsuit comes down the pike it’ll take more of her time with two clients who clearly don’t have the means to pay. But then again, may be not!

Don't worry. Whoever is orchestrating this (maybe multiple orchestrations) will have others come out of the woodwork when these accusers get old. The only good thing about this is that it is early in the campaign and the public should get tired of the he-said-she-said games.

I thought Bennet mentioned at one time that the second NRA accuser was a Sharon from Chicago. Wouldn’t that be Bialek?

In which case the three are Krausshar, Bailek and the Wine Bottle? So really only two?

If questions are allowed at this media event, Cain’s rep should be standing in front of mikes a half hour before the event stating he has a world class lie-detecter speclialist and a sitting judge awaiting any accuser who wants torestate their clain under oath and strapped to a lie detecter machine.

I’m sick of the character assassinations on Cain. This is nothing but a political witch hunt because Cain is a black conservative. And the media bias is pathetic to watch. Just compare the treatment Cain is getting from the media and Clinton:

Clinton had affairs with dozens of women and the media looked the other way - or had to be dragged into covering stories that leaked out in conservative media. They attacked the women and defended Clinton at all costs. The Clinton’s and the media got away with trying to destroy any of his accusers. Gennifer Flowers held her press conference and was threatened for doing so. Then there was Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey - both were also threatened. And of course there was Monica and her blue dress - yuk - and the Clinton machine’s attack (with media help) on Linda Tripp for giving evidence to Starr that helped firm up Paula Jones’ sexual harassment case against Clinton.

And don’t forget the most credible woman of all, Juanita Broaddrick. She claimed Clinton raped her when he was Governor of AR. She even had a witness see her immediately afterwards and vouched that her top lip was bitten severely, the crotch of her panty hose were torn and she was completely traumatized. NBC was planning on airing the Broaddrick story on Dateline by Lisa Myers, but Tom Brokaw threatened to resign. After a conservative uproar, it eventually aired, but there was no media follow-up or feeding freenzy. The story was ignored by the mainstream media - which is completely opposite of the hundreds of stories that have been written or aired about the Cain ‘scandal’.

Yes. It is sickening. We had a President who should be in prison for rape. And his sexual escapades with an intern young enough to be his daughter while in the Oval Office and elsewhere were defended by this same media and the democrats.

Ultimately he was impeached but not removed...and he was disbarred.

Herman Cain is an honest man, and I believe sincerely that he is a good man. He is trying to help his country and he knows what America has to offer.

That’s the sin he has committed. As a black gentleman, he dared rise above the democratic fenced-in plantation and show by example what any person in America can do, particularly blacks in America.

They cannot have that. They would lose their permanent constituency and would be rendered impotent as a political party from now on...or until they reaquired tradtional American values.

That’s what reall is going on here and we all know it...and so do they.

But it is not going to work this time because we are going to keep supporting Cain and he is going to beat Obama politically senseless.

If Donald Young and Larry Sinclair staged a news conference about the sitting President’s encounters, only one could show up. The other one would be extradited, again, to Delaware by Beau Biden, I would think.

Maybe these skanks can go on The View.

My thoughts as well.

They could start with a nationwide trailer park tour and wind up with back to back appearances on The Spew and The Squawk.

Then it is on the delusional-reality show "Skanks of DC" with cameos on various soaps.

The fact that the media even takes these two seriously shows how desperate they are. If a Dem received these accusations, they would destroy the accusers (and in this case, rightfully so).

I'm finding these women's stories to be very believable. Back a hundred years or so ago when I was about six a few of us were playing doctor out in the back yard. One of the little girls pulled up my shirt to listen to my heart. I objected cause I was busy playing with a toy truck I had brought along. When I told my mother about it she told me to get over it. I never have. So there!! /sar

L. Lin Wood was there yesterday to let accusers known that Cain is not going to stand and take these false accusations without suing.

So KK got $35,000 for a baseless charge. If she has this panel discussion I bet a dollar to a donut that LLW files a slander suit. Wonder if Gloria will represent her for nothing?
You want to slander Cain, then be ready to prove it or pay. Not a position I would put my client in.

Oh yes, I do. And remember even after Clinton wagged his finger saying he did not have sex with that woman, Lewenski - that the media jumped on and rabidly attacked Linda Tripp for recording conversations with Monica that proved he did and it nearly sent then into orbit when she advised Monica to keep the dress? The double standard media bias is beyond contempt.
