Some Details about Sharon Bialek
National Review ^ | 11/08/2011 | Katrina Trinko

Posted on 11/08/2011 7:08:44 AM PST by SeekAndFind

ABC Chicago station WLS looks into Sharon Bialek’s background (via Drudge):

The public record on Bialek begins in 1991 when she filed personal bankruptcy for the first time while living in Des Plaines.

Between 1993 and 1996 Bialek worked for four different companies in promotion and marketing positions. …

In 1999, Bialek’s son Nicholas was born and a paternity lawsuit was filed by the father, a media executive.

In 2001 came Bialek’s second personal bankruptcy, filed after sizable legal bills. That year she was hired by WGN radio where she worked until 2004 when she took a marketing job and then a job at WCKG radio.

Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government is reporting that they have confirmed Bialek definitely attended the TeaCon 2011 conference in Chicago that she mentioned confronting Herman Cain at during her press conference, and that Bialek voted in the Republican primary in 2008.

UPDATE: The Chicago Tribune has more details on Bialek’s financial woes over the years, although according to her fiancee, she is currently comfortably financially.

BTW, how did she get Allred’s phone number in the first place?

That is exactly what I was wondering as well.

Sure seems like whenever the Dems need a "character assassination job" done on a Repub, they have her on speedy dial.

Here’s an interesting siting of Sharon Bialek at a Tea Party Convention last month ( Andrew Breitbart confirmed the event ):

http://www.suntimes.com/8592168-417/sneed-witness-says-cain-accuser-hugged-him-during-tea-party-meeting-a-month-ago.html

Witness: Cain accuser hugged him during Tea Party meeting a month ago

The Cain Encounter ...

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.

* The “he”... is GOP presidential contender Herman Cain, who has been accused of sexual harassment by several women.

* The “she”... is Chicagoan Sharon Bialek, who held a news conference Tuesday as the only woman to PUBLICLY accuse Cain of sexual harassment.

* The Sneed source ... is WIND radio co-host Amy Jacobson, who tells Sneed she witnessed the Cain/Bialek encounter a month ago while backstage at the AM 560 WIND sponsored TeaCon meeting in Schaumburg Sept. 30-Oct. 1 at the Renaissance Hotel and Convention Center.

* Quoth Jacobson: “I had turned on TV to find out who was Cain’s accuser, and I almost fell over when I saw it was Sharon Bialek accusing Cain of groping her genitals.”

“I was waiting for Herman Cain’s ‘Accuser No. 4’ to surface — and up pops Sharon!”

“I couldn’t believe it. I was shocked.”

“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.”

Bialek told the media on Monday: “I went up to him and asked him if he remembered me. I wanted to see if he would be man enough to own up to what he had done 14 years ago.”

* The encounter: “It looked sort of flirtatious,” said Jacobson. “I mean they were hugging. But she could have been giving him the kiss of death for all I know. I had no idea what they were talking about, but she was inches from his ear.”

* The introduction: “It all began when I took a convention break and joined my pals at the hotel bar. Sharon was drinking Mimosas with them. She said she was a Republican, a Tea Party member, had once dated [White Sox sports announcer’ Steve Stone] and had worked at WGN radio.”

* The rendezvous: Sharon also said she was anxious to meet Cain again and had once gone to an afterparty with him and her boyfriend years ago. But she never mentioned he had sexually harassed her.”

* The upshot: Bialek has since applied for employment in sales at WIND radio and is scheduled for a second interview Thursday.

So it goes.

Bialek voted in the Republican primary in 2008.

Perhaps with a nefarious motive?

Amy Jacobson, Bill Kurtis—just two people who have come forward to question Bialek’s accusations. Kurtis alluded that she is “well known” in Chicago radio circles. My feeling is she is either delusional or lying.....

She should be called on it. It's readily disputed: No, “David Axelrod” is not “connected” to Sharon Bialek; plus Cook County court records.

Maybe at the moment. But she admitted to living in the same building with David Axlerod and also said she sees him in the gym in the building.

She was on FOX with martha about a half hour ago.

Regarding the “fiance”, there is a post in a thread here somewhere that leads us to believe he is recently unemployed.

Gasp! Would you just look at Cain’s left hand. He is copping a feel even in this picture. Seriously, I want to hear from the two other men in this photo to verify that Cain even knew the names of anyone in this photo. Very few photo ops does the target of the photo op actually know the name of anyone in the photo.

The first question is this — IS THAT SHARON BIALEK in the photo?

She looked heavier yesterday, heavier than the lady in the photo.

I'm not getting it because of these two posts; the first of which I was responding to:

To: SeekAndFind

Sharon Bialek was just on fox and admitted living in the same building as David Axelrod (I didn’t catch if it was now or at an early time) admitted knowing him but said she’s only talked to him in the workout room.

The first implies it's current and that's what I replied to. The second is even more explicit that it's current. I read both and replied to the first.

One attorney has opined that what is alleged was “criminal sexual assault”, not “sexual harassment”, and thus has accused Mr. Cain of a felony. This opens the door for him, like anyone who is falsely accused of a crime, to file a civil suit for defamation, i.e. damage to his reputation.

A lawyer opining that what was alleged is "criminal sexual assault" is not defamation. Merely saying that if Cain did what this woman says he did, then it was a felony is not saying that Cain did what he was accused of doing.

With regards to the underlying allegations, as a public figure, it would be very difficult for Cain to bring a successful defamation claim. He would have to prove that this woman made these allegations knowing that they are false. Without some piece of damning evidence (e.g., a current admission that she was lying), it would be nearly impossible for Cain to prove the falsity of a story that allegedly occurred 15 years ago.

she’s only talked to him in the workout room.

Is that a new euphemism for the room in the house where the bed is located?

Analogous to other euphemisms, e.g "dating" = sleeping with; "fiance(e)" = live in sex parter one has no intention of ever marrying.

“Did i just hear that:

Yep - Sean mentioned it tonight on his show. And, though I didn’t hear it completely, also thought he said that the boyfriend worked on BHO’s campaign.

Anyone who saw it tonight - was that who he said, or was it someone else connected to her?
