First woman goes public with harassment claim against Cain (Her name is Sharon Bialek)
Hotair ^ | 11/07/2011 | Ed Morrissey

Posted on 11/07/2011 11:50:36 AM PST by SeekAndFind

A week after Politico published vague, second-hand accounts of possible sexual harassment by Herman Cain during his tenure at the National Restaurant Association, one woman has gone on the record with specific allegations from fourteen years ago. Sharon Bialek, described by her representative Gloria Allred as a single mom, says that Cain groped her — but backed off after she told him to stop:

A fourth woman said Monday that presidential candidate Herman Cain engaged in sexually inappropriate behavior with her more than decade ago, though Cain was not her supervisor at the time.

Sharon Bialek, the first woman to publicly accuse Cain of inappropriate behavior, said Cain was “sexually inappropriate” with her in 1997, saying he put his hand under her skirt and pushed her head toward his crotch after a dinner together. She said he backed away after she asked him to stop.

“I want you to come clean, Mr. Cain,” she said in a New York City press conference at the Friars Club with her attorney, Gloria Allred at her side. Allred is known for her media savvy and for representing women who have had legal issues with the rich and powerful.

Three other women have reportedly accused Cain of inappropriate behavior while he was running the National Restaurant Association, but none has made public charges against him.

Mediate has the video of her statement and a transcript of the specific allegation:

At that time I had on a black pleated skirt, a suit jacket and a blouse. He had on a suit with his shirt open. But instead of going into the offices, he suddenly reached over and he put his hand on my leg under my skirt and reached for my genitals. He also grabbed my head and brought it towards his crotch. I was very, very surprised and very shocked. I said, “What are you doing? You know I have a boyfriend. This isn’t what I came here for.”

Mr. Cain said, ‘You want a job, right?’ I asked him to stop, and he did. I asked him to take me back to my hotel, which he did right away.

Cain immediately issued a statement regarding the charges:

Just as the country finally begins to refocus on our crippling $15 trillion national debt and the unacceptably high unemployment rate, now activist celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred is bringing forth more false accusations against the character of Republican front-runner Herman Cain.

All allegations of harassment against Mr. Cain are completely false. Mr. Cain has never harassed anyone. Fortunately the American people will not allow Mr. Cain’s bold “9-9-9 Plan”, clear foreign policy vision and plans for energy independence to be overshadowed by these bogus attacks.

I’d call that a complete denial, but having someone go on the record will make it more difficult for Cain to ignore the story, as he had planned to do with last week’s allegations. Despite Allred’s stupid comment about calling the incident Cain’s “idea of a stimulus package,” the fact that someone is willing to go on record and give specifics on a charge will make this seem a lot more credible than last week’s vague reporting from Politico. Making that more difficult is the statement from Bialek and Allred that the purported victim is a Tea Party Republican, which might indicate less of a credibility issue than otherwise.

I didn’t see where she filed a formal complaint ever or got any kind of “settlement.”

"First of all she didn't work for him... so how can it be workplace harassment?"

If her claims are true (which I HIGHLY doubt), what she describes is sexual harassment. This is the first paragraph of the definition of sexual harassment from the EEOC website (emphasis added):

"It is unlawful to harass a person ( an applicant or employee) because of that person’s sex. Harassment can include “sexual harassment” or unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature."

If she was asking for a job she would be considered an applicant and if (mind, I say IF) Cain stated or implied her hiring was dependant on sexual favors, he would be guilty of harassment.

But a number of people have spoken about Cain's behavior over the years and this is totally out of character from the man they have described. Does that mean it is impossible? No. Less likely? Yes.

But, as Ann Coulter asked in her column last week, whatever happened to the "one free grope" rule? This was the constant excuse for Democrats - they tried something, but they stopped when asked. Have we suddenly had a rule change (retroactive to 14 years ago)?

One of the co-authors of the original Politico story was on a local radio show last Monday and whenever she was questioned about anything, her pat answer was that "I'll let the story speak for itself." Well, it has spoken for itself - and proved to be a poorly sourced, non-specific piece of garbage more intended to slander Cain with innuendo than to rightfully "inform the public". I put this story in the same garbage heap until I see some verifiable facts on the table.

She sure was smiling a lot when she read her statement. She knows it’s a lie and can’t believe anyone actually thinks there is some merit, or at least reporting it like there is some merit.

This will just result in another boost in the polls for Cain and fundraising.

If something did happen, I’m sorry to say that I would believe that she started it. I’ve worked in male-dominated fields my entire life, including in the liquor industry, even before these extreme PC days. I’ve never had a problem with anyone I worked with or for!!! And, like someone said, she wasn’t even working there anymore...

I also don’t know how she can remember such details (what he said, what she said) so many years later??? I’d say that I have a decent memory and don’t alter things, and I can’t remember conversations that far. I might remember a sentence or two, or the gist of things, but not to the extent she was painting it.

Unbelievable.

She really went out of her way to see him that night.

I’m sure Allred hunts these women down and leans on them to become her “clients.” This gets Allred on TV, etc. I mean, really, Drew Peterson’s girlfriend did not decide to look Gloria Allred up in the phone book and call her so she could tell her story.

As the Cain campaign tweeted: “Welcome to the campaign, Gloria Allred. What took you so long?”

It’s all just too convenient. Allred claims she has two sworn affadavits from a “former boyfriend” and “her mentor” backing up Bialek’s accusation. She waves around two pieces of paper claiming they’re the affadavits, BUT refuses to hand out copies!

That means there WILL BE more Allred press conferences. What a circus. I hate liberals.

True. Those go to the surrounding circumstances, not to the allegation itself.

But if any of those facts went against the woman, that would be illuminating.

I still don’t know that I’m on board with the need to “go there,” though. At least not the campaign. I think they need to stay on message.

I don’t think our candidates need to “jump” every time the LSM says “jump.”

I figure all that is going to checkout. She’s got the two sworn affidavits. I think one was from her doctor, the other from a friend. But yes, you are right, it should be easy enough to verify the plausibility of the incident.

But even if it does checkout. There is nothing she accused him of that he couldn’t respond with in-kind. “The woman was accepting my drinks, she was flirting with me, she accepted my upgraded room, she accepted my invitation to dinner, etc. I thought we were two consenting adults. The moment she made it clear that my advance was unwelcome I stopped.”

Sure, I’m probably naive, but I don’t imagine this is a conspiracy. This is hardly newsworthy at this point. It’s not harassment, it’s not assault. It’s a guy who thought an easy woman was coming on to him.

My wife watched with me and the first thing she says, is this lady made lots of mistakes. She thought the room was a nice romantic gesture from her boyfriend. The moment she heard it was from Cain the incident should have been over. Does she normally have drinks and dinner and get alone in cars with men when she is involved in a relationship with someone else?

When our kids were young, I wouldn’t drive most of our babysitters home alone. It’s just not worth it to put yourself in that type of situation.

Why would a supposed Tea Party Republican appear with a Democratic feminist lawyer? Yeah - I guess she just wants the country to know Cain’s true character, rather conveniently before the Iowa caucuses and the first primaries.

Because Cain is a serial harrasser? Liberals didn’t mind Clinton’s “bimbo eruptions.” But they’re concerned that Cain is going to endanger the Republic.

If only they practiced back then what they preach now.

Well, if Cain uses the abvoe excuse HE WILL THEN DEFINITELY BE IN TROUBLE.

A married man isn’t supposed to bne doing things like these behind his wife’s back. PERIOD.

And isn’t he an elder at his church? Isn’t he supposed to be a model of propriety?

I hope the incident did not happen at all, PERIOD. Any ADVANCE he makes on the woman will be troublesome.

At best, the affidavits are of what? What the woman TOLD them!

And if they’ve signed affidavits, why are they not agreeing to be identified? Why are copies not be distributed to the media for publication?

Why is the media publishing a completely dishonest photo of Allred waving paper, as if she has evidence, when there is no proof whatever that that paper is real or is evidence at this point?

Talk about more propaganda.

Too many unanswered questions here. First of all, why was she fired from NRA? And why would she contact Cain to help get her job back? Was she flown to Washington? I'm assuming she didn't live there as she was staying in a hotel and claims he upgraded her room. Why would you have to go all the way to Washington to ask someone to help you get your job back? She obviously felt familiar enough with him to contact him in the first place, so why the need to go to Washington to discuss the matter?

I've read through Hotair and Mediate, and can't find any info as to where this alleged incident took place. Rush said she'd accepted a dinner and drink invitation from Cain, but I haven't seen that anywhere. Did she actually go to dinner with him? Did she willingly go back to HIS hotel room afterward? They were obviously some other place than her hotel room as she claims she asked him to take her back to her hotel after the alleged incident. There's too many holes in this non-story as far as I can tell. Does anybody have more specific info than what's been published thus far?

If true, I don’t approve of that behavior from him. But I’m not surprised a woman would want to sleep with a powerful man to get a promotion or a pay raise. Still, if there was truth to the story, we’d be hearing rumors that Cain’s female workers got up by being with the boss. Long before he ever entered the presidential race.

Clearly, she was neither offended, nor traumatized, nor scandalized by this alleged incident.

Doesn’t mean I wouldn’t be extremely disappointed in Mr. Cain if he were engaging in this sort of conduct. But this woman’s own statement, and the fact that she never made a complaint to the NRA, does not support the “outrage” she says she feels now, over a decade later.


Very well said. She clearly did not feel threatened during the situation. Anyone who is assaulted would have felt threatened.

Excellent question that needs to be shouted from the mountaintops.

Your average Tea Party Republican wouldn't be caught dead on the same side of the stage with Gloria Allred.

And your average Tea Party Republican wouldn't need a Dem feminazi lawyer to hold her hand if she did decide to make a statement about something.

All they need to do is MANUFACTURE any scandal, regardless of truth, with ANY Candidate knowing that supporters will be intimidated into surrendering without a fight.

The right thing to do is CHECK OUT the accusation to see if there is any credible evidence to it.

If yes, then abandon Cain. If no, FIGHT LIKE HELL FOR HIM REGARDLESS OF ODDS.

I agree --- this won't be shut down --- and we don't need the diversion. Or another three hours of Mark Levin's screaming.

Let's refocus folks--on Obama. Cain is but one candidate, and not the best one out there.

Not Cain's fault--but with our country headed off a cliff---he needs consider the damage he's doing and fix this or go home.

And filed charges. I can’t believe she made a big deal out of it.

Like liberals like to say, “its a private matter.” It happened between two consenting adults.

Quite frankly, its none of my business, yours or of the f*ckin’ beyotch Allred. Whatever was said at the presser, I don’t see any crime committed.

Now you can argue if it happened, they shouldn’t have done that but I don’t care.

I wasn’t there and its not for me to pass judgment on the alleged incident.

TWO QUESTIONS JUST JUMPED OUT TO ME AS I READ THE ENTIRE NARRATIVE:

1) Why would she ask him to drive her home, after her supposed horrific experience?

Wouldn’t a decent woman leave the car in a huff and abandon the boor?

2) As scripted stories go, this looks so badly written...

One would have to assume that Cain is so stupid that he can’t wait to at least invite her to the hotel room bnefopre attempting anything. He had to do it in the car where people might see them make out.

Gloria Allred can’t even write a credible script. She wants to make Herman Cain look like a barbarian.

This happened 20 years ago.

Is it relevant today? Heck, no!

Like I said, even IF all what was described happened, its a private matter.

And Cain was not a public official at the time, he was a private citizen.

This is just pornographic titillation for the politically prurient.

saying he put his hand under her skirt and pushed her head toward his crotch after a dinner together. She said he backed away after she asked him to stop.

Cain allegedly put his hand under her skirt. Did she allegedly ask him to stop at that point? Or does she alledge that she said nothing at the point and allowed a second step to take place??

Or does she alledge that Cain used one hand for the skirt and simultaneously use the other hand for the head (a two handed approach)? Such a manuever can only be accomplished when both parties are seated, facing each other and with knees touching. Is she implying that this bold manuver was done at the table of the restaurant??

At this point, I think it would be right for Cain to issue whatever blanket denials he thinks are appropriate and then say he will respond no further.

This would infuriate the LSM, but that is all.

All they need to do is MANUFACTURE any scandal, regardless of truth,

Calm down. Please.

Let's face the awful truth: There were sexual harrassment charges leveled at Mr. Cain. At least one was awarded -- for whatever reason --- a cash settlement (don't nitpick over "severance" nonsense).

Like it or not---this is the truth. Cain was concerned about this when he ran for the Senate a few years ago. And now he's asking us to believe this is all a big plot against him.

Not even he believed in his heart of hearts that this wouldn't "come out". Doesn't really matter by whom---you want to play in the major leagues, you come trained and prepared.

Cain knew it was a potential fireball, and he did not prepare himself. And he had years, not days, to do so.

Call her bluff and a lying whore.


That might work with a small fringe of conservatives, but I would suggest that the general public wouldn’t care for that comment. Cain would be best served by shutting up.

They SAY there are 3 women. Without names and stories, I say they don’t exist.

Silence is guilt in the eyes of the media. The only way to win is to go on offense.

We have 4 women already - its not just this one alone....and it seems like there is a lot more out there

You're right.

Let's let the left trot out as many false accusers as it takes until they've chosen a candidate that they think Obama can beat.

By all means, let's count the number of false accusations - that makes it all the more credible.

Moron.
