Who is Gloria Allred?

Editor's Note: Tune in at 8 p.m. ET for an in-depth look at the women accusing Herman Cain of harassment. 

This profile of Gloria Allred was written in October 2010 and updated November 7 to include her representation of Sharon Bialek.

Los Angeles (CNN) - Her clients include mistresses, starlets and allegedly wronged women from all walks of life. So, when Gloria Allred calls a news conference, media types know they're about to hear some dish.

So it was on Monday, when Allred stepped in front of the cameras at the Friar's Club in New York City and presented client Sharon Bialek.

Bialek, a former manager with the National Restaurant Association and a registered Republican, described in graphic detail how GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain sexually groped her in 1997 when she sought his help in finding a job.

Bialek, a single mother from Chicago, said she was coming forward to provide a public face to sexual harassment claims against Cain from three other women.

    The Anti-Social Personality Disorder has spoken. We must overlook Cain's criminal behaviors because this bimbo can't balance her checkbook?

    But what about the $40,000 CRIMINAL TRANSFER of funds from the "Smoking Guy" Mark Block from his Koch-Charity "Prosperity USA" to Cain in clear violation of tax laws for charities and clear violation of campaign laws for elections?

    What about the CLEAR VIOLATIONS OF LAWS by Cain in taking ten high-wage employees from Koch-Americans for Koch-Prosperity to do campaign work for Cain.

    What about the "character" of the man that drove under Aquila Energy and got sued for $10,000,000? How does that compare to Bialek's $5 grand debts? What about the character of a man who takes $190,000 a year from Maytag-Whirlpool while destroying 5,000 American jobs and shipping the Maytag factory to Mexico?
