Gloria Allred Holds Press Conference with Another Cain Accuser

Gloria Allred held a press conference at 1:30 pm ET in New York City, with a fourth woman, Sharon Bialek, a Chicago woman alleging harassment by Herman Cain.  This, according to Allred, is a new accuser and not of the one previous women that have accused Herman Cain of sexual assault.  The woman appeared with with Gloria Alfred at the news conference.   Gloria Allred is a well known supporter of the Democratic Party, a feminist and has been involved in several high profile controversial cases in the past.

The allegations against Herman Cain started shortly after he achieved front runner status in the field of GOP hopefuls.   Politico published a story, which referred to anonymous sources.  Although the National Restaurant Association (NRA) has offered to waive the confidentiality agreement for the previous accusers, none are prepared to talk.  Herman Cain has finally attempted to put a stop to questions by the media, directing his staff to issue a journalists’ code of ethics to them.  He has been attempting to get back on message and discuss the issues.

Whether or not there is substance to the latest allegation, remains to be seen.  No doubt it will be a distraction, which will focus the nations media on Gloria Allred.  For Gloria Alfred it is already a Mission Accomplished moment, after all the focus is back on sexual allegations.

Shortly after the story broke Allred released the following statement:

“A woman who alleges that she was sexually harassed by Presidential hopeful, Herman Cain, when she sought his help with an employment issue when he was President of the National Restaurant Association will hold a news conference with her Attorney, Gloria Allred on Monday, November 7th, at 1:30 p.m. (e.s.t.) at the Friars Club, 57 East 55th Street New York, NY 10022.

The woman is not one of the three women who have previously been reported to have alleged sexual harassment by Cain.

Bialek alleges that she thought Cain’s help to find a job, when she worked for the NRA in the 1990s, when Cain sexually harassed her.  During the meeting she alleges that Cain put his  hand under her skirt, reaching for her genitals.  The incident happened in a car.  She also alleges that Cain pushed her head toward his crotch.  She alleges that she said, “Mr. Cain this is not what I came here for, you know I have a boyfriend”.  She recalls him saying, “You want a job, right?.

According to Gloria Allred the woman told her then boyfriend and another person. Allred presented two sworn statements at the press conference.

Duing the press conference Sharon Bialek said, “I want you, Mr. Cain, to come clean.  I implore you, make this right, ”

The Cain campaign said that the allegations are false and made the following statement:

“Just as the country finally begins to refocus on our crippling $15 trillion national debt and the unacceptably high unemployment rate, now activist celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred is bringing forth more false accusations against the character of Republican front-runner Herman Cain.  All allegations of harassment against Mr. Cain are completely false. Mr. Cain has never harassed anyone. Fortunately the American people will not allow Mr. Cain’s bold “9-9-9 Plan,” clear foreign policy vision and plans for energy independence to be overshadowed by these bogus attacks.”

New Woman Accusing Herman Cain Of Sexual Harassment Hires Gloria Allred

The woman, who will be the first to go public on Monday, sought Cain’s help with an employment issue and was allegedly sexually harassed by him. Allred and her client will discuss, in detail, what she alleges occurred with Cain.

The Tea Party darling had hoped the scandal would die down, but that’s not happening. Once again, he clashed with reporters on Saturday night after a debate with Newt Gingrich. Cain refused to answer questions about the allegations, and said, “You see what I mean? I was gonna do something that my staff told me not to do and try to respond, okay? What I’m saying is this — we are getting back on message, end of story. Back on message. Read all of the other accounts. Read all of the other accounts where everything has been answered in the story. We’re getting back on message, okay?”

  1. James,

    I expected Cain to drop 11 points
    during the last issue.  I am shocked at his resilience.  I
    was involved in Georgia Politics during his Senate campaign. 
    There was not a lot of Oppositional Research done on him since he was
    expected to lose.  He got 37% at best (without going and looking
    at the numbers) 

    Although Cain is Equal to Romney in the
    last national poll. Cain has lost voter confidence. Whether the
    latest accusation has Merritt or not, I don’t see how he can overcome
    this last issue with Allreds Client.

    Like I have said, Romney, while not the
    Conservative Darling has been fully Vetted. So far we know that he
    travels with Dogs on his roof, Has mad false statements about his
    Father and MLK, and flip-flops on every big issue. He is the GOP
    best chance at beating Obama.

    Whether you like him or not, I believe
    that your criteria favors him over everyone else.

    So so far my picks, Bachmann for Iowa,
    Romney for New Hampshire, and Cain for South Carolina… I am
    thinking I will be batting .333 That is enough for a multimillion
    dollar Baseball contract but a last place finish in Pollsters

  2. James I would tend to agree if Gloria Allred were not involved in this. In all likelihood it will stick though.  Obviously the left has brought it’s firepower to bear, probably successfully.  It’s sad that these women all kept this to themselves for over 14 years.  It boils down to he said, she said.  Who is going to verify it?  Nobody.
