Herman Cain: Accuser Sharon Bialek is a Liar
ABC News ^ | 11-8-11 | Huma Khan

Posted on 11/08/2011 12:07:07 PM PST by Driftwood1

Herman Cain today said that Sharon Bialek, the first woman to publicly accuse the GOP presidential candidate of sexual harassment, is a liar and that he never acted inappropriately with her.

“I have had nothing but the utmost respect for any and all women as well as those who have worked under my leadership,” Cain told ABC News’ Jonathan Karl in the ABC News/Yahoo Newsmakers interview. “I can categorically say I have never acted inappropriately with anyone, period. And as far as these latest charges… I reject all of those.”

Cain said the charges are “baseless” and “bogus” and that the accusations are an attempt from his opponents to derail his candidacy.

“When I first saw her [Bialek]… I didn’t even recognize her,” Cain said.

This is Cain’s only media appearance today before his scheduled press conference later, where he will respond to new allegations of sexual harassment.

I'm gonna have to take Cain's word on this one.

There's just something about a woman with her boobs hanging out accusing someone of sexual harassment that I just don't trust.

The UK papers already have exposed enough about this sl....er woman...to pretty much lable her as one who’s never had a real job and is always looking for other ways to feed her face. Of course, this won’t get onto our MSM.

And, as a double check, just look at her pic...that should give a large clue as to just what she’s about.

“I never had sex with any one of those women. Never.”

Cain can’t prove a negative. But I believe him over gold digging beyotches any day.

I was on the jury in a sexual harrassment case; terrible facts, cooborated by lots of evidence.

Not one of the women read from a script like thus accuser.

Struck me as very odd.

What someone on Cain’s team needs to do is produce a video for youtube in which many of women who have worked for Cain testify as to his character.

If a man makes a pass at a woman and she rejects him and he says "OK" that is not sexual harassment, is it?

If it is, then every man who ever made a pass at a woman is guilty.

And, of course... at the very end of the story...

Former senator Rick Santorum called the accusation “very troubling.”

Just gotta get your 2 cents in, eh Rick?

Cain is set to hold a news conference in Scottsdale, Ariz., at 3 p.m. PT/5 p.m. ET to address the allegations by Bialek and three other women, dating from his tenure as head of the National Restaurant Association.

He again called Bialek’s accusations “baseless” and said his wife, Gloria, has been upset by the accusations that were first reported by Politico on Oct. 30.

After watching Bialek’s news conference on Monday, Cain told ABC this afternoon that his wife of 43 years said “that doesn’t even sound like you.”

In other developments, a lawyer for Karen Kraushaar confirmed to USA TODAY his client’s identity as one of Cain’s three other accusers. The communications director at the U.S. Treasury Department had confirmed her identity earlier in the day to NPR.

Two large clues.

She is having too much fun for this to be a ‘traumatic’ experience.

With all of her reported financial problems - seems to me she is not at all troubled.

If she had any credibility she would quietly leave the stage and shut up. How much more is left to say?

Odd how you refuse to live by your own sign on.

Behavior like this is one of the reasons the GOP may just finish 3rd in 2012 behind both the Democrat and the Tea Party

Just another gut feeling, supported by nothing more than intuition...

Her photo reminds me of the most sociopathic woman I’ve ever known, a woman who carelessly destroyed two marriages and an entire church community. Just a feeling.

Cain is being treated to the full Alinsky. They are trying to destroy him with his own values. For that reason alone I’m still standing with the man.

Sheesh, those puppies are as big as her head. Whenever I look at a woman who looks like that (and this is very sexist of me, I’ll admit it) I wonder to myself what tools in her arsenal she used to get what she wanted when she was a younger woman. People tend to use the gifts God gave them to get there way. If there is no silicone there, then it is logical and reasonable to assume that back in the day her looks opened a lot of doors, and many men could have been a nuisance to her.

From this I glean that, if the incident in the car even happened, it happened one of two ways:

1. She was hot and Herman was really hoping to get a piece of that (she is basically telling the truth).
2. She was used to using “it” to get what she wanted and Cain spurned her.

In summary, you don’t have the look she has (and, more importantly, what implies she looked like before she was 40) and not have it be a major part of who you are. If you are highly moral, it can be a bit of a serious nuisance. If not, it is an asset. The lower your morals, the more of an asset - that will ultimately only get you into trouble.

Perhaps ALL Republican presidential candidates, past and present, should step forward and voice anger at the way these character assassins, with the enthusiastic assistance of the media, have attacked one of them.

They should not claim that the accused is guiltless, because they don’t know. But they do know that he is being attacked by cowardly, mostly faceless persons about something that they claim happened so long ago that few of us could remember any details, much less find a witness to stand with us.

How will America ever find good people to run for public office after this?

This is New America... there'll be big paydays for interviews, book deals... who knows, maybe even a reality show. Her days of being po' are over... and she KNOWS it! She looks like a woman who's just won the lottery... and in a way... she has.

She does look very pleased with herself. She has a past that makes her allegations suspicious, and she chose an attorney who makes ME suspicious. The bad thing about this sort of thing is it makes it MORE difficult for women in the workplace. Certainly there are jerk bosses out there who DO use their power over underlings. There always have been and there always will be. By the same token there are women out there who use sex to get ahead. There always have been and there always will be.
AND there are people of both sexes who will make up stories to damage people’s reputations for a myriad of reasons. One thing I would like to see happen is for people who are behind FALSE allegations to suffer real consequences as a result.
