Cain accuser who settled keeps quiet (Works for Romney Campaign "helper")
Boston.com ^ | 11-16-11 | By Beth DeFalco and Brett J. Blackledge

Posted on 11/16/2011 4:16:05 AM PST by icwhatudo

TRENTON, N.J.—The first woman known to have filed a sexual harassment claim against GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain while he ran a trade group shows no interest in revealing her identity or publicly discussing her accusations against the Georgia businessman.

The woman, who works for one of New Jersey's largest lobbying firms, has deliberately made herself scarce.

----break---

The firm's founder, who didn't return calls from the AP seeking comment, has close ties to Gov. Chris Christie, who threw his support to Mitt Romney after deciding against entering the GOP presidential campaign himself. Another partner helped Romney in his 2008 campaign.

3. Sharon Bialek (Lived in and socialized with David Axlerod and represented by Gloria Alred)

No no no. Herman Cain and Mark Blockhead have already accused Perry multiple times and for weeks now. He also blamed the Dem machine.

Herman and Blockhead did to Perry what these women supposedly did to him.

Herman continues to explain why Rick Perry is a bad candidate and a liar and a bad debater.

Herman Cain has bad character and I pray to God the voters see this before Romney becomes our candidate.

Yo normy—You’re beyond way over the top. Typical RINO/demrat rant. You accuse your opponents of the very things you do.

Exactly what has Cain lied about?

Your guy Perry is tied to the attempted Cain lynching through a fellow named Wilson. Please spare me your insufferable self rightousness.

Four entities had motive for trying to bring Cain down because they are losing or are afraid they’ll lose: Perry, Romney, RINO-led GOP and Marxist demrats.

It would be good for America if Perry and Romney simply left the arena. I know that won’t happen because these two people care only about themselves. Absent that, at least move on and drop the nonscandal ploy. It would be a service to American voters if you all would just stick to the issues.

Wrong, Wilson, Perry’s pollster was on the radio running his mouth the day this story broke. So who put the media onto the story. Wilson, because no one else knew to ask them about it. The time line is the time line. Why was an unknown pollster, that claimed he was from Oklahoma on the radio asking for the topic to come up, the pollster was not named anywhere, and then making false claims about more to come. You perrywinkles are grasping at straws like normal.

Yeah we don't want anyone who knows how to create jobs and has a proven record of doing so. No one who is provably pro-choice.

We don't want a guy who thinks the 2nd Amendment is a God given right.

We want a "conservative" who thinks the 2nd Amendment is a states rights issue, who thinks abortion shouldn't be part of the political discussion and one who voted for Bill Clinton. Yeah! He's so cool!

I wonder who his VO and advisers will be because that's who we will really be voting for.

By the way, Herman Cain did accuse Perry of leaking the sexual harassment which was common knowledge. Rick Perry did not leak them and neither did his staffer.

Go ahead and live in la la land where the world is out to get your perfect candidate. What a joke. Even Palin said the guy needs to come clean, oh wait, she's probably a Rino now on Free Republic.

Politico had it for 10 days as did Cain. This thread points to Romney. Maybe it's just the whole world is against Cain because he's so awesome and dangerous. Yeah he was voting for Bill Clinton, his wife votes in Dem Primaries and Herman Cain is a danger to the Washington establishment.

Perry denied it. His staffer denied it. Cain has no problem throwing out false accusations toward others and neither does Mark Blockhead. Of course it's always nice to be able to accuse Perry and then say "it might be 25 years before we know who really did it" as Blockhead said recently. Really? Why. org.whodat has proof already right? Why not send that to Blockhead so the case can be solved.

I will rejoice to see the demise of these two charlatans.

Now we need to start posting EN-MASSE articles on FR re: Herman Cain that have absolutely nothing to do with a) sexual scandals; b) slips of the tongue on Libya.

If we truly want his campaign to derail we will participate in furthering these other two negative narratives for every thread that comes up. However, don't you agree: I say a) we STOP posting them, and b) WE IGNORE THEM.

In return we need to start running stories of Herman back on message, campaign stories, donation successes, great interviews, etc.

Further, I think Herman Cain should call a MAJOR Conservative GOP talking head who likes what he has to say, to bring on as an advisor and get a key endorsement. The news cycle needs to be pushed away from "CAIN=SEX HARASSMENT SCANDAL" and back into "CAIN-FRONTRUNNER". We all have a part in this and I give you my word I will do my best to to get us ASAP "BACK ON MESSAGE, BACK ON NARRATIVE" before all these Politico and RINO character assassination attacks started. It is up to US!!

PS Herman Cain needs more prayers and more sleep!!

Newsmax
Newt: Gingrich/Cain Ticket ‘A Real Possibility’
Tuesday, November 15, 2011 05:01 PM

By: Jim Meyers and Kathleen Walter

Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich tells Newsmax that a Gingrich/Herman Cain ticket in 2012 is a “real possibility” — and so is a slate with Cain on top and Gingrich as his running mate.

The former House speaker also asserts that it is “unconscionable” for Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan not to recuse herself from the Obamacare case, warns that the United States will not allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons, and says the supercommittee charged with cutting the budget deficit is a “terrible way to govern.”

Story continues below.

Where you wrote “provably pro-choice”
you meant “provably pro-LIFE”.

It is a shame that, allegedly, so many alleged people allegedly know about this alleged woman and her alleged claims, yet the voting public is not allowed to know anything about this alleged woman and her alleged claims.

It is also interesting that, per the story (via NY Slimes, via original Politico story maybe??), this alleged woman’s alleged “concerns about Cain and other undisclosed problems” are now alleged to be a “sexual harassment” complaint filed against Herman Cain.

Yeah, and I’m supposed to base all or part of my decision on that crap?! Sadly, many sheep will do just that when they instead should be asking: “WHERE’S THE BEEF?”

Um, yeah, I figured out her identity like two weeks ago and also showed the possible connection to Romney about Two weeks ago:

http://teapartypost.blogspot.com/

The REAL reason I think she doesn’t want to come out is that their is a coincidence between the time she cried harrasment, and didn’t get the promotion she was up for.

But hey, what do I know?

Thanks for this posting...

There is a Milwaukee “conservative” talk show host, Charlie Sykes, who’s been spending the last 3 weeks blasting Cain because he doesn’t like and has had some run-ins with Mark Block, Cains chief of staff.

During the 08 election Sykes supported Rudy Giulianni and on every opportuity he has blasted away on “tea party “activists” who are pushing the social issues including abortion. He loves to cite the 2010 election and the defeat of two US senatorial candidates one from Nevada and the other from Delaware who pushed social issues. When Sykes does endorse the presidential candidate it will likely be; no surprize to any listener... it will be Romney.

Sykes opened his tirade on Cain by claiming Block who was depicted smoking a cigarette as (paraphrased) show boating. Sykes doesn’t see a government regulation on a life style such as smoking as a governmental intrusion

What can one say... Here you had the Kalalaland Republican establishment campaigning for statewide office . Convinced they could not win if they presented conservative formulas that were needed to return California to the “Golden State” we once knew and loved.Instead catapulting smack dab down the middle of the California campaign alley and wound up as ground meat rotting in the memories of the 2010 Kalalaland campaign culvert ..

Yet “the establishment blue bloods” are still busy bad mouthing those conservative US Senate and state cadidates running in Nevada and Delaware as examples of “bad strategery”.will never mention Kalallaland....

Time to wave what happenmed in California in their respective faces. I feel the Cain trim down was pushed by Statist media propaganda and enabled by “GOP establishment forces “ through fools like Sykes, who as I’m composing this is citing a 30% drop in Obama confidence by :non whites”.

While I may single out Sykes (Sykes is in no way a racist- he’s helped an up and comming black talk show host BJ Harris now broadcasting out of Tucson Arizona )

But I believe Sykes is typical what the establishment believes how photogenic a candidate should be, how a candidate should speak,and where a candidate should come from, and their biggest blind spot what their positions should be. Worse yet how the candidate is perceived,(and this is a reality the establisment refuses to accept) by todays Ministry of Propaganda known as the mainstream media.

Can you imagine being stalked as this woman and her family are?

She’s lived up to the agreement. It’s not her fault that Cain is running for President or that the press wants to know how she feels about it.

Frankly, I worry about you. Let’s say Cain actually did vote for Onada and compare that with Perry.

l. Perry is an alleged exdemrat.
2. Perry supported Al Gore.
3. Perry supported Gore’s Global Warming scam.
4. Perry recently signed a “hate speech” law. Hate speech laws are used by demrats to silence their opposition.
5. Perry recenly said those of us who oppose tax payer funding for illegal alien kids’ education are “heartless”.

How Cain may have voted almost 20 years ago is of little interest to me. In any case, that allegation cannot be proven unless Cain himself says he did or his ballot can be resurrected. So, once again you Perry people frantically grab for any alleged—unproved and/or unprovable—bit of negative info to prop up your sinking-like-a-lead-balloon candidate.

It really is pathetic.

Cain has no record. Cain did vote for Clinton. Perry never supported Global Warming. Perry supported pro-life Al Gore in '88 for the Dem candidate in the primary but voted for Bush and switched parties that year.

Cain voted for Clinton for President and didn't switch until 96.

Perry always governed as a fiscal conservative even when he was a Democrat.

when you consider Perry was the first Republican Lt. Governor EVER elected in Texas it kinda puts things in perspective.

Perry is a conservative as is his wife. Perry didn't say abortion was a social choice like Cain did this election or agree that abortion shouldn't be part of the political discussion.

Cain has always been in this to drain support from Perry for Mitt. Perry unfortunately helped him with his debate performances and his "you don't have a heart" response.

Perry is still the most conservative candidate with by far the best record of job creation of all the candidates. He is truly a fiscal conservative and a social conservative. Perry is ex-military. Perry is the CIC of a 20k + military and he runs the 13th largest economy in the world all while creating 1 million jobs as governor and 40% of all jobs created in the USA during the Obama social (ist) experiment.

You are quite welcome.

BG, We gotta go deep into RINO territory now, with less than two short months left, and pull this disgusting, anti-Cain/anti-Conservative/anti-Tea Party/anti-anti-Establishment crab grass out by the ROOTS and toss it into one big patriotic bonfire. Thanks for joining. I will be on the lookout for more good, positive articles from the Cain Campaign Trail. I urge folks to not honor the threads that having anything in their content or titles linking to the "Politico Smear". Just ignore them completely. They will die out eventually and we will be back on message. Karl Rove and David Axelrod will be sad. Very, very sad.

Please post a whole thread on how we Cainiacs can help. I’d be glad to help you in your strategy. Planning on doing some campaign calling to Iowa voters too.

Too tired to think of ideas but ready to march. The guy has thrust himself into the maw of The beast and will be taken apart for everything he does or says. The scrutiny that obama of course never faces. Listened to Larry Sinclair last night describing Obama’s “habits” back when, and those pesky gay murders that were timely and convenient for candidate Barack. If such things had happened around Herman Cain, it would take the whole hour on 60 minutes.
