Posted on 11/10/2011 10:34:02 AM PST by Fred
Washington (CNN) - Herman Cain accuser Karen Kraushaar is "not considering a press conference" if only she and the other named accuser, Sharon Bialek, are willing to participate, according to a source close to Kraushaar.
"She still would like to have a press conference with all four women" who have accused Cain of sexual harassment, the source said, but it has not yet come together.

—”She still would like to have a press conference with all four women” who have accused Cain of sexual harassment, the source said, but it has not yet come together.—
What “four women”. I know of only one, Bialek. Even Kraushaar doesn’t count until I see her actual accusations against Cain.
And I have seen speculation that Bialek is in fact both numbers 2 and 4.
She’s a serial harassment filer.
I’m convinced that claims filed against Cain at the NRA were Democrat retaliation for his embarrassing Bill Clinton on national TV during the HillaryCare debate.
Now that Cain is running for president, they’ve dug up those complaints, and added a new one, David Axelrod’s ex-neighbor, the thrice-bankrupt Sharon Bialek.
Can’t stop the Cain Train. All aboard!
They needed that press conference to happen yesterday. It didn’t and now they’ve lost the news cycle.
Of course not, because she wants the visual four women up there. It looks terrible regardless of whether their stories actually are true. Pure shadow games orchestrated by the Dems.
There are only 3 women.
One of the "accusors" hasn't accused Cain of anything other than eating dinner, where she said "nothing inappropriate happened".
So that leaves 3.
We're not even sure one of those exists. The original Politico story talked about two anonymous women that were harassed at the NRA, but only one has come forward. The other has not come forward, made any type of statement, and remains completly anonymous. Other than the original Politico story (which was lightly sourced), we have no evidence she even exists.
If she doesn't exist, that leaves 2.
Exactly! They feel it slipping away, so they're using the old salesman tactic called "The Takeaway".
I think it’s just a matter of needing more time to get everything set up. A lot more time, you know how things are. Right now it’s looking like about 9 months before her schedule opens up. Perhaps next October?
Of course not..............yet. Anything to keep this in the news cycle.
Lol, she’s hoping the other two might not be such obvious and easily discredited nutcases with checkered pasts.
These Bimbos want the wrong court because it only costs them a hew hair do and extra heavy pancake makeup. If they insist on pursuing this, let them take Herman Cain to court. Believe mje me, he would have a far easier time of coming up with character witnesses than they would!
And then MJr. Cain should sue Politico for everything they have!
Hee hee...The Spew on The View.
If they hurry and work this right, they may be able to go on the Christmas tour with the Radio City Rockettes.
And then MJr. Cain should sue Politico for everything they have!
Speculation? Cain harrasses two separate "Sharons from Chicago"? What are the odds?
She’s probably horrified that she isn’t being portrayed in the press as an utterly sympathetic victim. In fact she looks pretty bad at this point, with the revelations about her serial complaint filing and absurd demands.
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAA!!!!!!! Post of the day.
As posted by another Freeper, the news cycle is over, and tomorrow's a federal holiday.
I agree. I can only find two women who are substantiated to exist - Kraushaar and Buyalick. If the NRA ever confirmed that there were actually two complaints involving Mr. Cain during his tenure with the Association, I’ve been unable to find that statement. It may exist, but I can’t find it.
Herman says he only remembers one complainant: Kraushaar.
I’m not counting the one complaining about the $400 bottle of wine, but I think CNN is. That’s hysterical.
Rove and Co. probably told them to wait until Herman Cain wins the nomination at this point. They’ll need to give Obama a hand when the real fight comes around.
Yes this is the pone who files a sexual harassment suit against another boss for forwarding an email joke.
Until details of her complaint about a "sexually explict e-mail" (aka mild internets humour) came out. Now Sharon doesn't look like the nuttiest. Hence cold feet.
“Mom, you have to do the right thing. I think you need to tell on him.’”
Does anyone know a 13 year old who still uses the term - “tell on him”?
BIALEK: Absolutely. He’s the love of my life. And the most important thing in the world to me. And — but you know, on the other hand, I want him to know that his mommy did something good for women...
Does a mother of a 13 year old still refer to herself as “Mommy”
I know this isn’t much, but this is one of many things that tells me this woman is so full of it.
4 X 0 = 0
lol may I quote you on that
Good idea. I’d like to see all 3-5 of their faces as well.
For one thing, we would have a more accurate count.
For another, seeing the one accuser’s press conference was remarkably instructive re: who to believe.
She's psychologically trying to hide "for some reason." What's inside will show on the outside.
I believe she feels if people really looks at her, they'll see her lies. She knows her story is coming unraveled, and I think the left is ready to give it up, too, because their trick is helping Cain much more than hurting him.
She's going to be left standing naked by those who pushed her out there. It's her own fault.
The kid probably told her to get a FRIGGIN Job.
It is because of this man Lin Wood. The attys for the accusers are insects compared to this guy.
ROFL! Good one!!
“Im not counting the one complaining about the $400 bottle of wine, but I think CNN is. Thats hysterical.”
I’m just wondering about that story, if there is any truth in it at all. I just wonder if these three women somehow managed to go out to dinner with Cain and, as people often do when on the “company dime”, decided the sky was the limit. When they started ordering $400 bottles of wine, Cain quietly slipped away with that smirk on his face.
Then they were mad.
If there’s any truth to the story.
If her claims against Cain are true, and she loves her son so much, how could her son even know about them?

Doesn’t she work for IRS/Treasure Dept? Doesn’t Cain want to get rid of it or downsize it - not needed w/his tax plan? LOL! Out of work - now she’ll be calling him for a job and around the circle we go.
Ohhhhhhhhh. A hot shot Libel Lawyer! Man, Cain is smart. I'm glad he's on our side.
The woman is a coward. She is used to filing her little complaints behind peoples backs.
Now that she has to get out there and justify her BS, she is too much of a coward.
She knows she will be a laughingstock.
She wants Bialek there because it would make her stupid claims seem more severe.
Bialek already did her job. Picked up her money and she is on down the pike.
Two former supervisors say Karen Kraushaar initially demanded a settlement of thousands of dollars, a promotion on the federal pay scale, reinstated leave time and a one-year fellowship to Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.
The complaint also cited as objectionable an email that a manager had circulated comparing computers to men and women, a former supervisor said. The complaint contended that the email, based on humor widely circulated on the Internet, was sexually explicit, according to the supervisor, who did not have a copy of the email.
Four women sitting around dissing a man? We already have that. It’s called The View.
that’s great! ping!
Doesn’t go to the bathroom by herself either, I bet.
Getting up on stage alone with Bialek and Allred would be akin to dancing around with a clown outfit on.
The only thing worse looking for her would be if Nicky showed up too. But hey, it made headlines (about nothing) for a couple of news cycles. "Answer THAT Herman"
Perhaps this whole sordid affair will soon peter out.
Well, who is surprised by this? Hopefully the story will now be allowed to fall apart and drift away. Possibly the only good thing to come out of the PSU pedophile scandal.
This is where it gets confusing.
Politico describes Kraushaar as Woman #2.
The information about the other woman in the Politico story didn’t even come from her - it came from another source-
“POLITICO initially reached the woman on the phone about two weeks ago, when she declined to comment, and has not been able to reach her since then.”
(many have linked this source as Perry pollster Chris Wilson because that account fits his. However, his story has already been debunked by someone else who was at the same event. Wilson, has a history of dirty politics - kokomotribune.com/local/x627656366/Consultant-in-Kokomo-push-poll-resurfaces/print )
