After silence from fellow Cain accusers, Kraushaar backs off
Herald-Mail ^ | November 10, 2011 | Melanie Mason

Posted on 11/11/2011 12:42:01 PM PST by sevinufnine

Joel Bennett said Thursday his client, Karen Kraushaar, spent several days reaching out to two women whose complaints about Cain’s past inappropriate behavior have been detailed—anonymously—in media accounts.

“Despite diligent efforts, she has not heard from these two women,” Bennett said in a statement.

Maybe she hasn't heard from the anonymous women because they don't exist?

Or, maybe the “anonymous women” don’t want the pants sued off of them for libel...

Guess the fishing expedition came up empty.

Wonder if all the people who were so willing to pimp the smear like Karl Rove and the GOP bot media from NRO to Hot Line will now apologies to Mr Cain for helping slander him.

Really sad when the strongest voice at Fox News for reason and fact was Liberal Juan Williams.

So this women was able to reach out to these anonymous women but the entire MSM and blogosphere couldn’t find them? Chances are they don’t exist. Looks like it’s just the 2 nutbars. Kraushaar doesn’t want to be put on the same level as that bleach-blonde weirdo Stifler’s Mom and her gloryhound lawyer Allred.

I hope if Cain wins the nomination and these RINOs like Rove come grovelling to him he tells them to go to hell.

Well, I for one, give props to Juan. He was upset about the Cain accusations and I felt really sorry for him. All the other FOX people were willing to throw Cain under the bus but not Juan. It does speak well for him. Just my opinion.

Here is my theory. These women have been advised to wait until the stakes are higher. If Cain wins the nomination, look for these accusations to resurface. Democrat interest groups have plenty of money and many ways to compensate these accusers without leaving a clear trail to follow the money. If Cain wins the nomination, more accusers will surface. You can take that prediction to the bank.

I agree. Juan is an old school democrat. He’s been tied to the party his adult life but I suspect his recent experience with NPR has opened his eyes somewhat. He still plays close to the democrat playbook regarding the economy and such, but these type of things likely bring to mind the way he was treated. And Cain being Black just adds to the issue for him.

There needs to be a grand jury investigation into this manufactured scandal.

Just the fact that three of four of these women wanted to anonymously destroy a viable presidential candidate is highly suspicious — and really all they have to do is knock down Cain’s ratings just long enough to make him lose the primary.

This is a political assasination no less effective than shooting Mr. Cain on the patio of a hotel at a campaign stop — and the assassin is none other than David Axelrod.

Juan seems to come by his beliefs ‘honestly’. PBS treated him like merde, and then Fox came to his rescue.

I think having a cigar and a glass of scotch with Juan Williams may be an entertaining couple of hours. He’s seen and been through a lot in the last couple of years.

I think having Lin Wood preface Herman’s presser the other day was brilliant. Essentially, it meant you'd better be rock solid as an accuser or we're gonna sue the you know what out of you. Seems to have quieted the rabble down considerably.

Bennett needs to realize that his ‘client’ is a serial lawsuit instigator over sexual harrassment.

She got into another fracus 3 years later on same topic.

Bennett is the type of woman who’d be offended by something she saw on Sesame street.

After I heard one woman worked for the feds and another lived in Chicago, I pretty much gathered this was crap.

Surprised the ivy league trained media didn’t pick up on that.

If they wanted to make this more believable the RINOs/MSM should have gotten a women or two from his Godfather’s days and not brought Gloria Allred into it. Then it would have been more believable.

"If Cain wins the nomination, more accusers will surface."

This may have been true had Cain not have hired L. Lin Wood. However, hiring Atty. Wood was a game changer.

Nope. PR doesn’t work that way. Having given them the chance now, if they try to resurface later they then become a bad joke. Having had one smear blow up in their faces, the Junk Media cannot risk their all ready shaky credibility bringing it BACK up later.

the media lives on plausible deniablity. Trying to resurrect these people will hurt them more then it will Cain and they know it.

I agree Juan Williams proved himself a man of integrity with this mess. He was the only one pointing out the truth and while he may not agree with Cain on politics he was not willing to play the game. Must be why NPR didn’t like him.

I've noticed that, Juan Williams is as liberal as they come but occasionally gets one right. I watched liberal goon Bob Beckel "sort of" defend Cain. Silence or worse from the so called conservatives.

You know, I agree with you. Normally I’d say to not let it distract Cain from the campaign, blah, blah, blah. But in this case, I truly believe that something will be manufactured against Cain down the road anyway.

If an aggressive position is taken NOW, things could be exposed and Cain come out smelling better and Rat machine damaged. I don’t see a downside to it.

She reminds me of Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme, the Manson follower that tried to assassinate Presidnet Ford. Same hollow, expressionless look on her face.

I hope Herman Cain does file a libel suit, expecially against that Allred woman for her ‘open mike’ commentary.

Put this thing down. Hard.

I beg to differ. I think the timing is everything and there is a shelf life on this story. The main population will move on and they will have lost their opportunity. Americans have a short attention span.

I’ve always liked Juan despite his politics. You can just see that he’s a nice guy. It’s why FOX rallied around him so strongly (as well as FR - of course!) I wonder if he drinks and smokes? I hope so! In my opinion, all good Conservatives should drink and smoke and stick it to the Food Nazis.

I bet the “reaching out” was nothing more than her “asking” in the press when she did and was hoping they’d contact one of the lawyers. I don’t think she had direct contact with “them” (I still think there’s only one more).

Your concern is well-founded, which is probably one of the reasons Cain retained the services of Lin Wood. Should Cain get the nomination, I am confident that Wood will be well ahead of the curve on this matter and the Cain team will be much better prepared than they were a couple weeks ago.

This is a tough issue. By not putting women forward now because they just don’t want to or whatever, they have left the door open for a future situation. What if they claim in 6 months (or whenever), that the woman/women have now decided to come forward “because they just can’t live with themselves knowing Cain could really be President, etc.”?

In other words, they (Rats/Rinos/media) can put the blame on the woman who didn’t come forward now. Just a thought. Boy, would I love it if the RAT-RINO-Media machine was slammed hard!
