[Live Thread] Herman Cain to respond to sex allegations at Scottsdale press conference (Tue 11-8-11)
ABC15.com staff, wire reports ^ | 11-7-11 | Staff

Posted on 11/07/2011 8:42:40 PM PST by STARWISE

Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain will hold a press conference in Scottsdale Tuesday in response to recent allegations of harassment.

According to a statement from the Cain campaign, Cain will hold to the conference at the Scottsdale Plaza at 3 pm.

*snip*

“I know what happened, and he knows what happened,” Bialek said on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight. “One of my whole objectives was to give him the opportunity to come forward, to redeem himself, say, ‘Hey, I’m sorry. I did this. It happened. And let’s move forward.’ And it is unfortunate. I’m very disappointed that he didn’t take the lead in this.”

She said in the interview that she was prepared for an expected media onslaught, but was more concerned about how it would affect her teenage son

I don’t know Herman Cain. I met him once and he was a gentleman.

We knew Sarah Palin and we witnessed the lamestream-demonic-rat 24/7 slime, smear and unrelenting lies about her.

The aim was to make certain she would not be the first woman president.

The aim this time, IMHO, is to make certain that Herman Cain is not the first black American president.

The half white-Kenyan notwithstanding.

I agree with you 100%. We don’t know if any of these allegations are true, but they certainly sound fishy as hell. Now even some FReepers are buying into the whole purpose of the ‘multiple’ allegations and believing where there is so much smoke,well... there has to be fire. BS...it only means that the people that are out to get Cain have started a whole bunch of fires at the same time, but who is holding the match? Who is the arsonist?

And after they lynch and set Cain on fire....who is next?

Surely we aren’t stupid enough to believe that an arsonist will stop with ‘one’ of our conservative candidates? They have already burned Sarah at the stake simply for being a smart,beautiful and god fearing conservative woman!

They will go after every single one of our true conservative candidates until the only rats standing are Obama and Romney.

Where there’s smoke there’s fire means nothing.

Obastard and Clinton were on fire with tons of smoke and the MSM pretends they are as cool as a mountain waterfall.

I’m willing to bet (if I was a gambler) that every single one of these allegations is 100% false.

A caller today on Rush suggested the dems are terrified Cain will break the monolithic hold they have on the black vote. Obama got 96% of the black vote and if he loses even 10% of that he could be in real trouble.

The libs are deathly afraid of a black conservative president. That’s why the attacks are coming. No other reason.

he was too forward and suggestive with her.

You got it. The previous allegations didn’t work, so they needed more, with actual details. They will do anything to knock Herman out. They know they have Romney beat.

The only way to avoid another 4 of Obama is to get Cain in there. We have to beat Romney, and we are doing so.

We have to steel ourselves to say “So?” to every accusation! Let’s hope no one comes up with a tale of Herman and a 10 year old boy in the shower!

I almost think though that they planned the ‘multiple fires’ all along. They were going to string it out with some anonymous allegations and then bring out the Sharon woman. Now that her credibility is sinking..they are leaking the other’s names...yet the other allegations don’t amount to a hill of beans.

How interrrrrresting and devious and slick.

On Cavuto .. southern GOP bundler gal who
works on the BIG donors. She had dinner
last night with one of her big guys, I’m
sure soliciting big chunks of dough, and
they were talking about the race/candidates
.. he said he didn’t think the Cain issue
was such a big deal, and he was ready to
throw in for him.

Well, lil miss cutesy, GOP elite insider, bundling
sourcer goes thru all the ALLEGED gruesome
details of the latest Cain accuser in graphic
detail.

So, the guy says ..OH, well .. I didn’t know
that about physical contact .. blah blah blah,
and she’s steering him to MR .. you just KNOW
it.

So .. WE’RE ONTO YOU, GOP JERKS! Pushing
their big donors to MR, which GOP operative
Brad Blakeman who was on with Shep earlier
also intimated, saying the Cain problems
strengthen MR.

THEY’RE PUSHING MR HARD .. dang them!!!

Saw some of that - and just now with Cavuto - the CEO of HomeDepot was supporting Chris Christie - now is for Mitt Romney. Slapped Paul Ryan and the Bush Admin for reckless spending.

It’s hard to stay ahead of lies and smears when you never know who is setting the fires. We find out who set this fire and then we will know. The main thing that makes no sense to me on the whole Cain allegations are why..if he was so well known for being a ‘serial harrasser’ have we never heard of it before now?

IT MAKES NO SENSE! Herman Cain has been in the spotlight for decades. If he was that sort of character, we would have heard rumblings and rumors way before now.

Thanks for the heads up. I hope I can make it through it at my computer. My stomach is giving me fits right now and I might have to stretch out..but I will be watching for sure and will check back in the thread when the spasms stop. It hasn’t happened in a long while, but every now and then since my operation it gets to going and it is quite painful.

GO CAIN!!

Lin Wood.

wiki:

Defamation and Libel Lawsuits

John and Patsy Ramsey, the parents of JonBenét Ramsey, had several defamation lawsuits ensued since JonBenét’s murder. L. Lin Wood.[7][8][9] was the plaintiff’s lead attorney for John and Patsy Ramsey and their son Burke, and has prosecuted defamation claims on their behalf against St. Martin’s Press, Time, Inc., The Fox News Channel, American Media, Inc., Star, The Globe, Court TV and The New York Post. John and Patsy Ramsey were also sued in two separate defamation lawsuits arising from the publication of their book, The Death of Innocence, brought by two individuals named in the book as having been investigated by Boulder police as suspects in JonBenét’s murder. The Ramseys were defended in those lawsuits by Lin Wood and three other Atlanta attorneys, James C. Rawls, Eric P. Schroeder, and S. Derek Bauer, who obtained dismissal of both lawsuits including an in-depth decision by U.S. District Court Judge Julie Carnes that “abundant evidence” in the murder case pointed to an intruder having committed the crime.[10]

In November 2006, Rod Westmoreland, a friend of JonBenét Ramsey’s father, filed a defamation suit[11] against Keith Greer, who posted a message on an Internet forum using the pseudonym “undertheradar”. Greer had accused Westmoreland of participating in the kidnapping and murder.[12] Greer has defended his statement.[13]

Wood went on to represent former U.S. Congressman Gary Condit, and the victim in the Kobe Bryant case. He has also represented fellow attorney Howard K. Stern in defamation lawsuits against John O’Quinn, lawyer for Virgie Arthur, the mother of Anna Nicole Smith and against Rita Cosby, the author of Blonde Ambition, The Untold Story of Anna Nicole Smith.
