Ms. Kraushaar, a spokeswoman at the Treasury Department, said in an interview that she was upset that her name had leaked into some press reports. But she said that she had decided to speak out now that her identity was publicly known.

    One might be asking themselves why Ms. Bialek was fired from the National Restaurant Association. After all, being fired, quite unlike simply being laid off, is a serious issue with serious ramifications; since leaving the Restuarant Association, Ms. Bialek has been unable to maintain regular employment. So why was this woman let go? Why has it seemingly affected her ability to remain employed for so long? Perhaps it might have something to do with the reason she was fired from the National Restaurant Association in the first place… FILING FALSE CLAIMS OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT

    The emerging portrait of Herman Cain's most recent accuser shows a suburban homemaker with a history of financial and legal troubles, but one who supporters say has the guts to do the right thing. (snip) Born and raised in Chicago, Bialek graduated from Carl Schurz High School on the Northwest Side and briefly attended Northeastern Illinois University before enrolling at Arizona State University. She graduated from ASU in 1983 with a communications degree, a school spokesman said. Records show she twice has filed for personal bankruptcy, first in 1991 and then again in 2001. In the latter case, she claimed...

    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.

    A gold digger embroiled in legal and financial difficulties who has always lived above her station and will do anything to never have to work again. This is the portrait that has started to emerge of the fourth woman to accuse Herman Cain of sexual harassment - the first to come out publicly. Though her lawyer Gloria Allred painted a respectable and prestigious education and employment history for Sharon Bialek, 50, just a day later it has been revealed that she has not held a job for more than two years and has filed for bankruptcy twice. *********************** 1.

    Those who spent part of last week waiting for the other shoe to drop in the Herman Cain alleged sexual harassment story can now throw another pump onto the pile, as a fifth woman has come forward to allege possibly inappropriate behavior by the embattled GOP frontrunner. The Washington Examiner reports that Donna Donella, a then-United States Agency for International Development worker, claims Cain tried to get her to arrange a dinner with a “lovely young lady” in the audience at a speech he gave in 2002.

    Herman Cain claims sexual harassment accusations threatening to derail his presidential campaign are a smear campaign. But friends and family of one accuser say she is a principled and dedicated professional who was only trying to right a wrong no woman should suffer in the workplace. Karen Kraushaar, a 55-year-old former journalist and seasoned government spokeswoman who served on the front lines of the Elian Gonzalez custody battle, is a competitive equestrian and lover of golden retrievers. She has been married for more than two decades. “She wouldn’t be the type to make false allegations,” brother-in-law Ned Kraushaar, a Georgia...

    GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain argues that he's no sexual harasser -- but friends and family members of one accuser were only trying to right a wrong no woman should suffer in the workplace. Karen Kraushaar, a 55-year-old former journalist who currently works for the Obama administration, was outed today as one of the three women who had filed sexual harassment complaints against Cain. “She wouldn’t be the type to make false allegations,” brother-in-law Ned Kraushaar, a Georgia software consultant, told The Daily. “This happened [more than] 10 years ago. It’s not like she wanted to try and hurt the...

    The Cain campaign just sent out this statement: As Ms. Sharon Bialek has placed herself in the public spotlight through making patently false allegations against Herman Cain, it is only fair to compare her track record alongside Mr. Cain’s.In stark contrast to Mr. Cain’s four decades spent climbing the corporate ladder rising to the level of CEO at multiple successful business enterprises, Ms. Bialek has taken a far different path.The fact is that Ms. Bialek has had a long and troubled history, from the courts to personal finances – which may help explain why she has come forward 14 years...

    CNN ^ | November 7, 2011 | CNN Wire Staff
    The only woman so far to come forward and publicly accuse Herman Cain of sexual harassment did so in part with her 13-year-old son's encouragement, she said Tuesday on CNN. "He said, 'Mom, I think you need to do the right thing. I think you need to tell on him," Sharon Bialek said on CNN's "American Morning." "That confirmed it for me. If my son is saying it, I want to be the role model for him and other kids growing up."
  • 5th Cain Accuser was Involved in Return of Elian Gonzalez to Cuba

    At the center of the allegations against Herman Cain is current Obama administration employee, who was also the spokeswoman for Janet Reno during the Elian Gonzales fiasco during the Clinton Presidency.  For those unfamiliar with Elian Gonzalez, he was a young boy who survived an ill-fated trip to America in November 1999. Twelve Cubans set out for Cuba in an unstable boat, but only Elian and one other person would make it to America alive. Elizabeth Gonzales was attempting to do something that has been done more than a thousand times since Castro's revolution that brought communism to the...

    During Sharon Bialek‘s media tour this morning about her allegations against Herman Cain, she sat down with Good Morning America‘s George Stephanopoulos. Stephanopoulos questioned Bialek about whether she had called Joel Bennett, the attorney of one of the other accusers of the Republican candidate, who had said a woman from Chicago named “Sharon” had called him. Bialek hesitated. “We not going to answer who she calls,” attorney Gloria Allred interjected. “You can’t say? Why not?” pressed Stephanopoulos. “Because that’s not the issue — the issue is Herman Cain,” responded Allred.

    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 Rev. Al Sharpton Tuesday accused presidential hopeful Herman Cain of hypocrisy for downplaying racism in America - while blaming race for his growing sexual harassment scandal. “I think it’s the height of hypocrisy for Herman Cain to say three weeks ago that race was no longer a major factor in this country,” Sharpton told the Daily News. “Now that he's a target, he gets on Fox and says ‘Yes, race has something to do with it.’” Sharpton ripped Cain a day after a fourth woman came forward and said the former pizza CEO had made inappropriate sexual advances.

    Relatively few prominent Republican women have spoken out, so far, about the sexual harassment charges facing Herman Cain. Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski started to change that today, telling CNN that she's "concerned" about the growing list of complaints about Cain's behavior: Murkowski made clear she was moved by the public account of Sharon Bialek, a single mother from Chicago ... "It takes incredible courage for an individual to come forward as this latest, as this one woman has," the third-term Alaskan said. "So it does cause me to wonder exactly what is out there. I am concerned." ...
