Bialek boyfriend to come forward (2PM ET Press Conference)
Washington Examiner ^ | 11.14.11 | Hayley Peterson

Posted on 11/14/2011 10:08:48 AM PST by markomalley

A former boyfriend of Sharon Bialek, the Chicago woman who accused Republican presidential contender Herman Cain of sexual harassment, will talk to reporters on Monday to provide information supporting Bialek's claims.

The unnamed man, whom Bialek said is a pediatrician, will hold a news conference with Gloria Allred, Bialek's attorney, at 2 p.m. ET in Louisiana. The event was first reported by RadarOnline, a celebrity news site.

Bialek said Cain reached up her skirt in 1997 when he was president of the National Restaurant Association and she went to him seeking job advice. Following the alleged incident, Bialek said she told her boyfriend at the time what happened. Cain denies the allegations.

The news conference comes almost immediately after Cain's wife, Gloria, agreed to discuss the allegations for the first time on national television in an interview with Fox News' Greta Van Susteren. In the interview, which was pre-recorded and is set to air Monday evening, Cain's wife defends her husband and rejects the allegations.

"To hear such graphic allegations and know that that would have been something that was totally disrespectful of [Bialek] as a woman and I know that’s not the person he is,” she said, according to partial transcripts of the interview.

It’s quite obviously now that Gloria and the RAT’s target group of voters are the idiots and fools of this country.

I thought Bialek claimed she didn’t tell anyone what happened?

Let’s hear what he has to say. I bet it won’t add anything to what we heard last week.

They’re not building a legal case — they’re trying this one in the court of public opinion. Repeated accusations have a good chance of “sticking”, regardless of any lack of merit behind the charges.

Exactly. If he touched inappropriately, she could have filed a criminal complaint.

Its all very convenient we are hearing this just now.

Thank you. I missed that claim.

I know. And it really annoys me that he's being billed as a "witness" by some of the Misleadia.

As liberals are fond of telling us, its not the facts that matter, its the seriousness of the charge.

For them, a conservative accused in their minds, is as good as convicted.

That’s their MO.

WHAT a genuine witness to hearsay? Oh the humanity! Will they also interview the mailman who overheard the very same conversation while delivering a Publisher’s Clearinghouse sweepstakes mailing?

How about this young lady either press charges or take a nice big gulp of STFU?

A pediatrician, huh? Would have been a nice catch for the gold digger if she could have kept him. Wonder why he’s coming forward now?? A little blackmail maybe? Cain’s attorney will be all over him like flies on BS.

Good, the press can ask HIM some questions about him and his “girlfriend”:

a) party affiliation
b) do they think islam is a threat to the U.S.
c) what did he (boyfried) know and when did he know it
d) do they favor nationalized health care
e) do they support OWS protests
f) do they think it’s Contitutional to display a cross on government property
g) do they think that a mother has a right to an abortion in the first trimester of pregnancy ?
h) how much did they donate to Obama’s 2008 election campaign ?
i) how much have they donated to Republican campaigns ?

1997? That appears to be the same boyfriend that fathered her 13 year old son and filed a suit against her to win custody of that boy?

If any of the media is not in the tank for the Left, they'll ask Allred to open up the court records of that suit to see this boyfriend's contemporaneous view of Buyalick!

He’s doing Botox not pediatrics at the moment. I’m guessing his IRS problems, his payments to his ex-wife, and the money his former employer sue him for have all cleared up now that he’s coming forward.

If this guy provides any details, then he's probably lying!

According to Ms. Bialek, she told him (the boyfriend) that Mr. Cain had been "sexual inappropriate" but she had not detailed what happened.

You’re absolutely right. She said she told her boyfriend and her then mentor that Mr. Cain had acted inappropriately with her, but then said she provided no details, because “frankly” she was just too embarrassed. Sure this little detail will be lost in the run-up to the lynching.

I think by law he had to report it to the authorities.

Turns out he has a history of gambling debts, filed for bankruptcy and had to move out of state to avoid creditors.

This is the guy Allred is presenting as her client’s character witness.

You would think she’d know his shady past first but her ethics are as slimy as the man she’s introducing to the press today.

I don’t know. I’m surprised he agreed to appear. I know of few exes who have anything good to say about a former flame. A failed relationship usually doesn’t bring out the best in people.

Found this on the link above:

12:59
Hope everyone’s mic is working.

1:05 p.m.
Still waiting on Gloria Allred and the man expected to support accuser Sharon Bialek’s claims against presidential hopeful Herman Cain.

1:09 p.m.
Witness is Dr. Victor Zuckerman of Ruston’s Northern Louisiana Medical Center.

1:13 p.m.
Zuckerman says while he was dating Bialek she was recruited to work for National Restaurant Association. Says during 1997 NRA convention Sharon

“I remember Sharon saying that she and Mr. Cain had been to many of the same events during this week.”

Zuckerman says she said she had sat next to him at some events. had opportunity to speak with him at length.

“She told me I needed to meet this man of wit ,of wartmth and of great speaking abilities,” Zuckerman said.

1:19 p.m.
Zuckerman says he paid for Bialek’s travel and hotel costs to Washington meeting with Cain.

Said he did not upgrade the hotel suite.

Later, he learned from Bialek that something disturbing had happened during Bialek’s meeting with Cain.

She told Zuckerman that she had handled it and did not want to talk about it further.

1:21 p.m.
Zuckerman says he is not making a “political statement.” Allred taking questions from press.

1:24 p.m.
Allred: “Our agenda is to give all the facts so the voters can make an informed decision.”

1:27 p.m.
Just lost our video feed ... trying to get it back.

1:34 p.m.
Allred: “I don’t think it’s a crime or anything to be ashamed of because she has financial problems.”

1:36 p.m.
Allred says Shreveport is a beautiful place.

In response to another question about Cain:

“He wants to end this? He needs to come clean. “

Watched the whole thing, Gloria is desperate for attention and the Dr. read his statement of how Sharon told him stuff. Really not newsworthy, though Gloria thinks it is huge.
