Cain attempts to smear reputation of accuser

Cain: Stil stonewalling

GOP Presidential contender Herman Cain, his campaign stalled by mounting allegations of sexual harassment, turned to an old political ploy Tuesday — attacking his accuser with smears and charges that she is a chronic lawsuit filer with a history of financial problems.

“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 after an alleged incident with Mr. Cain, powered by celebrity attorney and long term Democrat donor Gloria Allred,” the Cain campaign said today in an email to supporters.

Cain is expected to repeat the charges in a press conference scheduled for later Tuesday in Phoenix.

The tone of the email suggests Cain has no plans to admit any wrongdoing in the face of increasing revelations of his penchant for aggressive sexual behavior towards women.

Sharon Bialek, a former employee of the National Restaurant Association, said Monday that Cain reached under her dress and tried to touch her genitals in a car after dinner in Washington in 1999 and also tried to force her head into his crotch.

The Cain campaign denies the allegations but Capitol Hill Blue has learned that Cain did file an expense report showing a dinner with Bailek at a posh Washington restaurant not long after she was laid off by the association.

Other revelations about Cain’s behavior towards women are expected to surface as polls show support for the former GOP contender slipping.

    By no means am I condoning Mr. Cain’s past actions if proven out. They are disapointing to me if true, but put in the same perspective of all the Democrats transgressions, especially Bill Clinton’s they do seem to pale in comparison..Sure seems to be a disparity to me!
    The media and the public seemed to “overlook” Mr. Clinton’s proven immorality.

      Clinton cheated on his wife. There are no allegations he sexually harassed women. During his administration and as a former president he championed women’s rights.

      So, for example: http://www.bloomberg.com/video/63147640/

      Cain is just crude as Clinton was. All the more respect for JFK who went after cooperative quality with style and panache.

      FDR and Ike supposedly had a mistress each which seems so sophisticated and far less troublesome.

      Edwards was a disaster. The ultimate bottom feeder. Then toss in Spitzer.

      Kerry has the good sense to continually marry upward. A senatorial gigolo. Better than wanton ass grabbing.

      Bush I & II and Obama all appear to enamored with their wives.

      The press IMO loves this stuff and it makes not one iota of diff if it is Republican or Democrat.

    Evidently Cain is spring-loaded in the stupid position when comparing his powers to evaluate a situation to that of an analog switch. Yep, he’s presidential material fur shor.

    Seemingly he doesn’t realize his campaign is finished; I.E….kaput!

    He’s so full of himself, he’s acting like a desperate, wounded feral hog running through the underbrush seemingly a candidate for an episode of “Hoggers”…no? / : |

    As an afterthought I have to complement Doug Thompson on his superb photo selections supplied with his editorials.

    In most cases the photo’s speak a thousand words, so too supporting his written content.

    The photo with this article is a keeper, great ‘tongue action’…no? : ))

    Of course he did the attack the accuser thing. I can tell just by the way this guy talks he is an old fashioned woman monger. This guy has no tact whatsoever.
