Witness: Cain accuser hugged him during Tea Party meeting a month ago [Sharon Bialek]
Chicago Sun-Times ^ | 2011-11-07 | MICHAEL SNEED

Posted on 11/08/2011 6:11:55 AM PST by justlurking

They hugged each other backstage in a full embrace like old friends.

She grabbed his arm and whispered in his left ear.

She kept talking as he bent to listen, and he kept saying “Uh, huh. Uh, huh.”

Huh?

“I don’t know if what she was giving him was a sucker punch, but he didn’t put his arm down while she was talking to him,” said the Sneed source.

just stepped back into the closet and expects us to fall for it!

Well, we are a nation of sheeple, and for the most part get "news" from the State run LIBERAL media!! I have not watched a "news"cast for the past five years. Radio news - FOX is much more biased than CNN. Believe it, try listening to these two for a couple of days and see for yourself. Fox makes sure the Won gets a clip played every single day, some days every 30 min on the hour.

I now depend on FR and Drudge to get my news. The best aggregator is FR. Suuport FR and make a donation if you haven't yet.

Two different women in those pictures. The picture with Herman Cain isn’t Bialek - it’s the source in the article, Amy Jacobson.

It’s the most unbelievably awkward maneuver I’ve ever heard of. He didn’t even try to kiss her first? As a man, can you imagine pulling something like this before kissing the woman? It’s called first base for a reason. You can’t get to home without tagging first along the way.

Of course, there can’t be a kiss. Because if he just did that and she rejected him, that would be the end of the story. He had to go from 0-to-full-on sex assault in two seconds in order for her charges to merit this kind of attention.

This story is so poorly crafted it’s laughable.

The link to the Glenn Beck page has a video of his interview today with Jacobsen. If you listen to most of it, she comes out believing the Bialek woman.

What’s even funnier is that;
1. Ms. Bialek’s voter registration is not active (she has to re-register).
2. In Illinois you cannot register as belonging to a specific party. There are only records of which party’s ballots you pull during a primary.

Exactly. Actually the story as I read it was that they did have a prior relationship, she had attended some other events with Cain, including one event where she brought her boyfriend and they all got a little loaded so she and her boyfriend spent the night in Cain’s hotel suite - with Cain still there. Presumably he slept in a different room of the suite, but it is a little freakish.

Clearly they knew each other if that is true. And if she later calls him up, offers to fly out to meet him etc... just who was propositioning whom?

Chicago media, including Bill Curtis, have this woman figured out as a kook and craz-oh. I heard this interview over WLS-AM yesterday afternoon with my own ears.

Bill Kurtis on Cain Accuser - "The roles may even have been reversed."(FLASH AUDIO)

WLS-am "The Roe Conn Show" Bill Kurtis- "I'm looking at Sharon Bialek and she speaks well, she's attractive, she has the lock of blond hair sweeping down over one of her eyes and I said "Herman's done. Herman's dead. It's over." And she has details and, of course, it's just up to the edge..." "And I ride in the elevator at work and I hear very quickly a different kind of story." "Let's put Herman and Sharon in the car at the same time and, the roles may even have been reversed given the track record here."

What she essentially said was it’s because of the multiple claims piling up. Not very intuitive on her part but there it is...

That’s smart, me too usually. We’re both off today, so my husband had it on (and of course, I had to look!)....

Here’s a pic, you don’t have to click on the video or start it, it just took a few seconds to come up for me:

My husband said he can’t even tell a woman her hair looks nice, at his job. He’s not a supervisor or anything, and would be hauled off to Sensitivity School (where I belong too, for the things I joke around with others at work... discussing height even!).

Not intuitive at all. Multiple claims against an average Joe with average means are one thing. Multiple claims against a prominent political figure who suddenly finds himself in the crosshairs of both political establishments is something altogether different. If these charges came trickling in over the course of his campaign, before he became a frontrunner, they’d carry more weight. They didn’t. She should know that.

Not only that but she has past history with the woman. She alludes to that. She should know what the woman is like, from what I’ve read she doesn’t have a good reputation in the Chicago radio industry. I don’t know why Jacobsen is off on this but she sure is.

From what I’ve observed, it’s actually very difficult for a guy to be friendly and sociable with women WITHOUT seeming flirty.(And vice-versa.) This would mean that the potential for misunderstandings is practically built-in whenever men and women interact.

Just my own observations, and I’m certainly no sociologist.

DesertRhino to darrellmaurina:
“And conversely,, don’t expect us to let you take the cab when it’s raining, or fix your flat. If you don’t want to let us act like a man,,, and insist that we act like gender blind soviets, then don’t be surprised when we do exactly what you say. If you want the SLIGHTEST female deference, (and of course,,you do) then we get to flirt. Too bad,, get over it.”

I don't agree at all.

If this is what Cain was thinking (and, unfortunately, too many men **DO** agree with you) it is at best an indicator of poor judgment and often an indicator of something a whole lot worse.

This isn't about being “gender-blind soviets.” A man who cares about chivalry will open doors, fix flat tires, let the woman take the cab in the rain, etc., without expecting anything in return — least of all getting the “right” to flirt with her.

If you're married (as most men in positions of power are), you don't get the right to flirt with other women. If you do, you're being disrespectful to your wife and you deserve the consequences at home and at work.

Even if you rationalize your behavior because your wife doesn't care and she long ago decided to put up with your behavior, sooner or later you'll flirt with the wrong woman and she'll either accuse you of sexual harassment or she'll get you into a situation where she can use her relationship against you.

If you're single and you find a woman attractive and she's both single and interested, flirting is fine. If you're both single and willing, then flirt unless she says “no,” and recognize that “no” means “no.”

Of course, if you're in a position of authority over her, that creates complications which may or may not be solvable — if you want to flirt with your cute single secretary or cute single intern or cute single student, you'd better darn well be careful or you're stupid. It's one thing if she really does understand she can say “no” — but how many secretaries, interns, or students feel comfortable with their boss or their teacher asking them out on a date? I'm not saying it can't happen, especially if the two have known each other for years or have pre-existing non-romantic personal relationships outside of work, but it sure is difficult.

This isn't rocket science. It isn't even really Judeo-Christian moral values. It's just plain common sense if you want a happy home and a happy work life.

When men don't understand that, it often says a great deal about their personal character. I know some men are faithful to their wives while flirting with lots of women, but why on earth would someone who is in a position of power and interested in politics want to see how close they can come to the fire before getting burned? At best it shows poor judgment, and often is an indicator of something much worse.

?I heard the woman describe the assault... it cannot physically happen the way that she described... especially if sitting in a car...

My sentiments exactly. Before reading your post, I tried to simulate what she described and it seems quite impossible to do. I think her (and Allred's) goal was to eliminate any perception that she may have somehow been the initiator.

NO!! Just think how many other politicians that have been caught in scandal have showed up at a press conference with their wives/families in tow, to confess their sins. The less he can do to have that side-by-side comparison, the better.

Other news is saying Cain doesn’t know this woman, Sharon...has no idea even who she is, much less is he guilty of what she claims.

Do I have this straight...this same woman supposedly came up to Cain at a tea party event and they hugged and chatted like they were personally acquainted?

Can someone explain this to me, as I came late to this thread, and what I’ve learned prior to this doesn’t make any sense to me.

Oh, great... I forgot about that one.

Even in small-market media, that's a big “no-no” and it got a lot of attention in the journalism world because she should have known better.

It was also a serious wake-up call to a lot of us in the media that our own actions are being monitored by the public. My recollection is this reporter got outed because a neighbor videotaped the reporter in her bikini and handed the videotape to a news crew from a competing television station. I'm going by memory so if I'm wrong, I apologize in advance — maybe somebody has a link.

It is impossible to avoid conflicts of interest outside large cities, but an attractive female reporter going over to a source's home in a bikini — even if she brought her kids — shows serious lack of judgment. This doesn't make things look very good on this story with the reporter's own history.

People know that reporters aren't monks or nuns (many are **VERY** far from that, especially in the television media where physical appearance is a job requirement) but personal behavior and views of a reporter are not irrelevant if they indicate and influence on how a story gets reported.
