Who is Cain accuser Sharon Bialek?
ABC Chicago ^ | 11-7-11 | Chuck Goudie

Posted on 11/07/2011 4:20:54 PM PST by STARWISE

*snip*

The public record on Bialek begins in 1991 when she filed personal bankruptcy for the first time while living in Des Plaines.

Between 1993 and 1996 Bialek worked for four different companies in promotion and marketing positions.

In 1996, and part of 1997, Bialek was at the National Restaurant Association. After being let go from that job in mid-1997, she says that she went to Washington, D.C., to meet with Cain, president of the association, because she needed a job.

In 1999, Bialek's son Nicholas was born and a paternity lawsuit was filed by the father, a media executive. In 2001 came Bialek's second personal bankruptcy, filed after sizable legal bills. That year she was hired by WGN radio where she worked until 2004 when she took a marketing job and then a job at WCKG radio.

Ugh! I didn’t think my opinion of marketing people couldn’t sink any lower. My apologies to FR marketing people who aren’t ditzy, skanky social climbers.

Here’s what I believe: Any idiot who kneejerkedly takes a position directly contrary to what they think the media is saying is just as much a prisoner of the media’s mind-wash as the most goosestepping liberal.

If you always take a position contrary to what Mr. Media says — if Mr. Media says x, so you decide “anti-x” — then Mr. Media still controls your brain. Because by saying x they dictate you will, without a moment’s thought, brainlessly parrot back “anti-x!”

Whether Herman Cain is innocent or guilty of what he is alleged to have done is wholly independent of whether the media “wants” him to be guilty.

Yes, of course they want him to be guilty. But that doesn’t men we don’t look at things with logic.

Most definitely.

I believe that she did try to get Herman’s help in getting a job back in 1997- but that she came on all flirty and he put the brakes on it.

I also believe this plot to profit was hatched as soon as Herman Cain announced his campaign and that she may have confronted him at the TEA Party gathering....like a groupie with a grudge.

If she was about 10 years younger and 50 pounds heavier, she could mass for Meghan McCain. And, it appears Sharon is following Miss Piggy’s “path to success.”

Also, catch the very skillful underlying narrative, cleverly constructed by the liberals, and imagery it evokes. Blonde, white woman and BLACK MAN.

They know what they are doing. Problem is, it will explode in their faces.

I want a statement out of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton regarding this high tech lynching, that is all this is. The Democrats and RINOS truly are the new Ku Klux Klan.

Wait a moment.

Boyfriend makes the hotel reservations. She says Cain upgraded her to a luxury suite. How did Cain know where she was staying and what kind of room she had?

Somethin here doesn’t compute.

In fact, a lot of this doesn’t compute. After a genital grab and a crotch dunk, why didn’t she get out of the car? why not a criminal complaint?

Man, I’d love to get her on a lie detector. And Gloria, too.

Looking at this woman’s expression I can’t help but think of liars and attention seekers.

Honestly, I have a tendency to think she isn't very bright - along with caring nothing about the truth. She likely floated from job to job on her looks (which probably were pretty good when she was young), but lost jobs when they realized she was incompetent. I've seen a few of those kind in my time.

The reason Allred led her to the podium by hand - tried to only allow her to speak the practiced words - then told her to shut up when she was getting O.T. and babbling about her hair - was that she knew the lady is dumb as a bag of hammers.

If they go on the morning shows I would bet Gloria does nearly all the talking.

Sorry folks, I see Flip Flopney’s hands all over this one.

As they were discussing this tonight on “Special Report with Bret Baier”, two things were said that caused me to pause and go “hmmmmm”.

1) It was revealed that Flip Flopney is spending ALL his radio and TV ad money in Iowa against Perry, and Perry only. Perry is way down, and Herman is tied with Flip in the polls. That makes no sense unless Flip knows something that causes him no worry of Cain.

2) Flip Flopney has declined the Fox invitation for a “center Seat” appearance on Fox. I guess Flip figures the fix is in for him and he doesn’t need the exposure. “Center Seat” has featured many, if not all of the other Pub candidates, either in the past or scheduled for the near future. Flip said no.

This smells to high heaven, and I have a sneaky suspicion the smell ain’t wafting over from Chicago-way.

Regardless of the paternity, I find it interesting that the pregnancy coincides with the timeframe of her accusations.

Remember when the left tried to totally discredit Joe the Plumber over some unpaid taxes.

And all the credible women they dragged through the mud after Clinton raped and otherwise molested them. The Juanita Broderick rape alone should have been enough to send Clinton to prison for a long, long time

I’m not buying it at this point. The first 3 seemed pretty bogus and the timing/company this woman is keeping is a telltale. I think this will be proven to be a fake in a couple of months at most. This reminds me of something similar Nikki Haley went through during her campaign.

From the article:

"She's of the same political persuasion as Herman Cain," Harwood said. "There was no money on the table to go and have an interview. This is truly about an American girl who's got a big heart and wants to do the right thing."

Yeah, right! LOL!

I notice on that court document that her attorney was David Axelrod. Could she "afford" him? I'm sure he doesn't come cheap.

And SHE was sued previously in a paternity case by the FATHER of her child? Apparently HE didn't trust her either.

4 jobs in 4 years? During the mid 90's? The boom years? And TWO bankruptcies 8 years apart? Now that's a strange situation.

I can take one look at her and tell you what she was and is—she’s a typical modern, liberal, difficult, unwise woman. Now she’s over the hill and still not in any better state emotionally or financially and her “assets” have faded so she’s looking for her 15 minutes and some dough when she thinks it’s good for the getting.

Exactly.

The doc you saw was a financial judgement against her. It wasn’t that David Axelrod and he wasn’t her attorney, he was the attorney for the lending company who was suing her. She doesn’t have an attorney listed on that doc.
(she also had a summary judgment against her and just this past September, had an asset seizure order against her..)

For someone who has held so many communication/ marketing type positions, it seems odd that she reads from notes typed on copy paper stapled together, so that they must be flipped over in an awkward manner.

I believe that she did try to get Herman’s help in getting a job back in 1997- but that she came on all flirty and he put the brakes on it.

And you believe that why? Cain didn't say that, in fact Cain is only attacking the media and not disputing much in the way of specific details at all. So you're just throwing guesses out there with absolutely zilch to back it up.

This woman went on national TV and accused Herman Cain, a married man and successful business person, of trying to have sex with her in exchange for his help with getting her a job. Her claims are very specific and if true, it demonstrates that at minimum Cain isn't very concerned about his wedding vows. Now why exactly can't Cain specifically reject her charges. If none of this happened, why can't Cain go on TV and specifically address these accusations. I know I sure as heck would. I don't know anyone who has been faithful to their wife and was a good upstanding person who wouldn't be outraged enough to very publicly denounce the specifics of what this woman claims. Yet Cain is not doing that at all, instead he is launching into an attack on the media - which looks to me like he is trying to change the subject.

Here is part of Cain's denial statement:

“It’s easy to make accusations when, by virtue of your anonymity, you don’t have to be held accountable for the claims you’re making,”

Yet this new woman isn't anonymous at all. She CAN be held accountable. If it is all BS, Cain shouldn't have much trouble making that point. Was he with her that night? Did he upgrade her hotel room? These are things he should know, and if there is nothing to her story he could squash her like a bug and win such a PR coup that all the other charges would likely be dismissed by the public as well. But Cain isn't doing that, he is trying to change the subject.

I have no idea if this is true, the accusations are probably overblown. But I remember when we got all the allegations against Arnold when he was running in the recall election. Women were coming out of the woodwork claiming he was a serial groper and sex hound. I remember conservatives dismissed the charges as media lies. Now it turns out those weren't lies at all - worse, Arnold even knocked up his freaking maid and has a kid with her. Cain's defense here is weak and he will have to do a lot better.
