ABC15.com staff, wire reports ^ | 11-7-11 | Staff

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

” .. for the first time in 14 years, to tell her story ..”

Now HC doesn’t have to respond to admissable evidence, he has to respond to hearsay and speculation.

Cain is likely done IMO.

It’s not the credibility of the allegations, but the damage done by the allegations themselves.

“Herman Cain has to respond to hearsay.”

“He’s not afforded the safeguards that are a part of our system of justice.”

“I ask that you afford him fairness.”

“The story is inherently improbable on its face.”

I think he just screwed up. Claimed he had never seen the woman before, even though there is a picture of them together.

In the course of his position of CEO of NRA, he had to have had his picture taken with a lot of people. I doubt he remembers most of them.

I'm not a Cain supporter but I know that the picture that has been shown today is NOT of this woman. Yes, the woman is blonde but it is not this accuser!!!

The man is on a countrywide campaign trial..he can’t be expected to remember every person that grabs his ear or asks for a picture.

There is a picture floating around that was originally thought to be Cain and Bialek, with two other people. I posted it, from an article at the Sun-Times.

But, the website was subsequently updated to caption the picture, saying that the woman was someone else -- the woman being quoted in the article.

You must be referring to the TeaCon picture with the gal who told Beck she saw Bialek talking with Cain there???

If you are referring to the picture of Cain and a blond at a recent Tea Party function, that was not her but the reporter Amy something. The accuser Sharon Bialek was there and went and gave him a hug but I haven't seen a picture of her and him.

he has been on the campaign trail for a long time...I met Ann Coulter too— I bet she doesn’t remember me— had my pic take with her..chatted with her about FR...sat next to her at the event....

I know Herman...I’m sure he doesn’t recognize her from a 2 minute meet n greet from a month ago.... but that is just my opinion based on experience and knowing Herman

I thought I saw a picture from a Tea Party convention. Supposedly she talked to him at TeaCon. However, given the huge number of people a candidate meets randomly during a campaign, it is feasible that he has no memory of her.

"It’s not the credibility of the allegations, but the damage done by the allegations themselves."

If that is the case, then conservatives are done for. The left will use any means to win. Mud will be dredged up or invented against each serious candidate in turn and whoever is left will not be a serious threat to Obama or the leftward movement of the "Republicrat" party.

Same thing applies. He’s running for US President. He shakes a lot of hands and has lots of photos taken.

In addition, there are other posts on this thread that claim that it wasn’t even the accuser.

He’s saying that members of the press are stalking his family...asking them to leave his family alone.

This man is so direct, it’s amazing.
