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.
I dont know if what she was giving him was a sucker punch, but he didnt put his arm down while she was talking to him, said the Sneed source.

Well, that’s interesting to say the least. I wonder if we’ll ever hear that recording if it really exists.
What’s interesting to me is Cain’s denial of knowing Bialek at his press conference yesterday juxtaposed against this story of her having words with him a month ago at this Tea Party event. At first, I thought “Uh, oh, how can this be?” But then I gave it a little thought based on what Jacobsen said in her Beck interview and what others have said (possibly on this thread).
Jacobsen said Bialek really wanted to meet Cain. She even claimed Bialek bulldozed her way to him, then had him in a close (arms around each other) conversation. I realized just because of what Bialek claimed about her prior association with Cain, this may well have been the first time Cain had ever met her. And with others here suggesting this was a set-up, this rings true.
Someone comes up to you at an event, makes an introduction and holds a close, brief, conversation with you. Do you know that person? I’d have no hesitation saying “No!” Nor would I acknowledge that meeting at my press conference because I’d be waiting of further background on her. Not acknowledging that meeting in no way refutes my statement of not knowing her. I don’t have to tell everything all at once. Not until I know all the facts.
This is interesting stuff. What I really hope is that Cain has hired someone to do background work on all these people. He acknowledged at the news conference that he expects more to come forth because he realizes it’s a planned operation. He needs to develop a defense strategy.
In fact, I was blessed to hear Herman Cain speak at several of our events - the RightNation2010 event at the Sears Center (Glenn Beck headline speaker - about 5000 people attended - I voted for Herman to run as a candidate for President in that evening's straw poll which I believe he won) and the Chicago Tax Day Tea Party Rally down in the heart of the City of Chicago last April 15th - I was right at the edge of the platform stage, took several pictures of Herman speaking, met Herman afterwards, and told him I'd be happy to try to get on the ballot here in Illinois to be one of his convention delegates. And yes, I got a hug from him AND he happily obliged to taking a picture not only with me but a whole host of dedicated Chicago area Tea Partiers.
My gut reaction tells me that Bailek crashed the well-publicized event out in Schaumburg to "stalk" Cain.
