GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain faced a new claim of sexually inappropriate behavior Monday as a Chicago woman, Sharon Bialek, told reporters the former head of the National Restaurant Association groped her after a dinner together in 1997.
If my wife was sexually harassed, I can assure you $35,000 , or any sum for that matter, would not buy her silence. It is a common allegation targeted at powerful men, and if these allegations are true, shame on them for not following through with them , maybe to save others from further harassment. Just a thought.
Not sure why the most recent accuser was seen with Mr. Cain after the alleged events, if she was so emotionally effected by his actions. And further more, if these events were so crude, why accept any cash settlements at all. Seems a little fishy at best.
Cain's lawer looked and sounded as though he were giving a eulogy. Then Cain spoke....only to dig a deeper hole.
Was wondering why this woman was reading her statement as though it were a script?
If she was as traumatized as she said, I would think every detail would be at the tip of her tongue.
I'm also curious....did Gloria Alred step up and take all those women who accused Bill Clinton of far worse than what Herman Cain supposedly did, under her wing? If not, why not?
Herman Cain must address this issue, head on. He can't deflect this, either by saying that it's a racial issue, etc.
If he wants to be viewed as "Presidential", he needs show that he has those qualities, and talk to the people.
