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.
I know what happened, and he knows what happened, Bialek said on CNNs Piers Morgan Tonight. One of my whole objectives was to give him the opportunity to come forward, to redeem himself, say, Hey, Im sorry. I did this. It happened. And lets move forward. And it is unfortunate. Im very disappointed that he didnt 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

Cain should tell the media that it is their DAMN JOB TO FERRET OUT THE TRUTH!!You are right.
Good for him!!! He did not take the bait regarding a financial motive.
LOL!! he does do the third person thing a tad....
just a little info for you...
his use of third person has a sales angle to it....it should not be used in arrogance...what he is doing is avoided sayin ME ME ME ME ME....
Cain acknowledged this himself...
Shaaadup with your finger pointing BS.
“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. Its 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.
LOOK FOLKS...CAIN IS DOING THIS WHOLE THING WITHOUT A TELEPROMPTER TOO...LOL!!
Obama has never stood up and answered direct question or even gotten hard questions from the media for 3 years now!
He said it was expected...he didn’t say it was smart...
LOOK FOLKS...CAIN IS DOING THIS WHOLE THING WITHOUT A TELEPROMPTER TOO...LOL!! Obama has never stood up and answered direct question or even gotten hard questions from the media for 3 years now!Yup.
I’m impressed that he’s actually taking so many (stupid) questions.
So Kraushaar spoke with the NYT??
NYT is trying to set him up over an article they haven’t even written yet. Good grief!
If I were one of his handlers, I'd cut this news conference off within the next 5 minutes, max. No more.
I didn’t catch that...
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.
Sounds like they’re doing just that.
CAIN HEARD ME!
Get off the stage now Herman...Good job...Head for the car!
Herman Cain backstage at the recent TeaCon with Amy Jacobson shortly after Cains 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.
I want Bialek to take one first!
Yep..she spoke with them ‘in the last hour’. NYT is trying to set a trap. Cain didn’t fall for it.
GO CAIN..getting applause now!
The media is throwing smoke bombs at Cain and claiming the smoke is evidence of fire.
I love the last thing said. And the crisis of leadership in this White House!!!
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.
Great wrap-up, talking about not distracting the campaign from tackling the economic crisis.
Smart move too!
You gotta quit with those hugs to Herman - you’ll get him in trouble and MNJohnnie jealous!
Damn, they read your post! :)
Yep..NYT reporter prefaced his question with the lead in that they had spoken with her ‘in the last hour’.
HMMMMMM..if the NYT is ‘on it’..you know it’s coming from the dem machine and enemies of this country!
Obama on C-Span now...
“NYT is trying to set him up over an article they havent even written yet. Good grief!”
Did you notice the tone from that POS “journalist”?
And what will the media say now?
Phenomenal job Cain!
I will hug on that man every chance I get!!!!
Johnnie is the love of my life, and he knows that....thank you Lord!!!
Remember when he said he has seen women harass men? HE WAS TALKING ABOUT ME!!!
Can’t believe they actually clapped. He did great! Much more credible than the bleached bimbo. He’s the one, definitely! He doesn’t rattle.
It’s the Republicans not the Democrats taking Cain down ... Beckel.
I heard that. Where did he have this presser? Who was clapping?
Beckel gonna haved an anurysm. I can dream right?
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!
They just called bialek a scam artist on The Five!
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.
Beckel’s such a lying weenie.
The press...after he finished.
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.
Funny, I thought the same thing while hearing him speak. I could actually listen to a President (with a capital “P”) again!
And he actually gets applauded at the end. Loved it!
