[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

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

“Media keeps talking about the number of fires the media themselves have set...lol. They want the whole meme going that ‘where there is smoke there is fire’. It’s all BS!”

Did you see the interview with the Politico idiot? When asked if he saw actual evidence (even if he was not allowed to publish) he evaded the question and gushingly jumped to how many Tweets the story got. He could not contain his excitement.

That’s the state of journalism today.

I agree, his delivery and responses are very credible.

If I were one of his handlers, I'd cut this news conference off within the next 5 minutes, max. No more.

Cain is doing a nice job here. Coming across as aggravated but keeping his cool.

Answering questions when he should, without sounding evasive. Refusing to answer questions that are designed to get him to say something controversial, such as the woman's financial motivations.

Very nicely done, so far.

Yeah ... in the last hour. How convenient.
I have a feeling the slimes reporter has a
different story that he ‘persuaded’ her to
spew. We’ll watch for their headline about
it, I’m sure.

Herman Cain backstage at the recent TeaCon with Amy Jacobson shortly after Cain’s alleged encounter with accuser Sharon Bialek.

“I recall Sharon was hell bent on going backstage at the TeaCon convention — where she cornered him,” said Jacobson.

“I was surprised to hear she claims she did not know Cain was going to be there. Cain was expected and was late.”

This guy is a very smart fellow. I’m impressed with Cain. He really seems real.

What I find interesting is that he is milking this a bit. He is using this BS to his advantage. He has taken over the media cycle and taken the air away from all the other candidates.

Of course...you could hear the jearing smircks in their voices! Beckel going nuts that the dem machine was implicated. Believe me..they have pretty good proof that the dems are behind this at this point. Beckel just heard the shot across the bow and he is instinctively reacting to protect the chicago mobsters at the WH!

Lin Wood - yes the Richard Jewel atty.

I thought he was perfect with ‘the court of public opinion’ very impressive introduction.

One atty who would not parade his client in front of the media.

I would give him a B for his efforts. Not even a B+.

He let the media off the hook.

He didn’t accuse THEM of being part of the CONCOCTED STORY and didn’t accuse THEM of being so much putty in the hands of the demonrats.

Just my opinion. But what I think is, in this case a good solid defense (which he put on) is not enough. He had to go more on the offence. And he didn’t.

And he actually gets applauded at the end. Loved it!
