Witness: Bialek Hugged Cain At Tea Party Mtg

From the Chicago Sun-Times:

Witness: Cain accuser hugged him during Tea Party meeting a month ago

By MICHAEL SNEED
Nov 8, 2011

The Cain Encounter … 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.” …

“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.

The “he”… is GOP presidential contender Herman Cain, who has been accused of sexual harassment by several women. The “she”… is Chicagoan Sharon Bialek, who held a news conference Tuesday as the only woman to PUBLICLY accuse Cain of sexual harassment.

The Sneed source … is WIND radio co-host Amy Jacobson, who tells Sneed she witnessed the Cain/Bialek encounter a month ago while backstage at the AM 560 WIND sponsored TeaCon meeting in Schaumburg Sept. 30-Oct. 1 at the Renaissance Hotel and Convention Center.

Quoth Jacobson: “I had turned on TV to find out who was Cain’s accuser, and I almost fell over when I saw it was Sharon Bialek accusing Cain of groping her genitals.” “I was waiting for Herman Cain’s ‘Accuser No. 4’ to surface — and up pops Sharon!”

“I couldn’t believe it. I was shocked.” “I recall Sharon was hell bent on going backstage at the TeaCon convention — where she cornered him,” said Jacobson. “I was surprised to hear she claims she did not know Cain was going to be there. Cain was expected and was late.”

And Cain was the featured speaker of the event.

Bialek told the media on Monday: “I went up to him and asked him if he remembered me. I wanted to see if he would be man enough to own up to what he had done 14 years ago.”

The encounter: “It looked sort of flirtatious,” said Jacobson. “I mean they were hugging. But she could have been giving him the kiss of death for all I know. I had no idea what they were talking about, but she was inches from his ear.”

The introduction: “It all began when I took a convention break and joined my pals at the hotel bar. Sharon was drinking Mimosas with them. She said she was a Republican, a Tea Party member, had once dated [White Sox sports announcer’ Steve Stone] and had worked at WGN radio.”

The rendezvous: Sharon also said she was anxious to meet Cain again and had once gone to an afterparty with him and her boyfriend years ago. But she never mentioned he had sexually harassed her.”

The upshot: Bialek has since applied for employment in sales at WIND radio and is scheduled for a second interview Thursday

Weirder and weirder.

    Shoo, why didn’t he recognize her? That’s one extreme makeover in the past month!

  2. proreason says:

    Cain flat out said today he didn’t remember her at all, not the voice, nor the face.

    It will be interesting to see how Cain spins this meeting. One would think that she must have said something interesting. Supposedly she whispered in his ear for 3 or 4 minutes. He will probably say that he meets hundreds of people a day, and can’t be expected to remember more than a fraction.

    But I wonder if his staff missed the report. It was out before his news conference this afternoon. Seems like another error to me.

    I expect there to be more women, but unless one comes out who has some hard data (hotel receipts, a note in Cain’s handwriting, cell phone records from Cain’s phone, etc.), he will continue to deny everything. It’s working, at least with his hard-core fans. And there may be nothing to it, even if 20 accusations come out. I don’t doubt the marxists can find dozens of women who would be willing to lie.

    Don’t doubt that they are beating the bushes for one with cell phone records.

    btw, the settlements can’t be damning either. If they were, they would be public already, wouldn’t they? The divorce records of Obama’s primary and general campaign opponents for the Illinois Senate race were sealed as well, but he had no problem making them public. But they WERE damning, so, of course, no law could prevent their revelation.

    The problems with Cain aren’t with his private life. The problems are that he is unequipped (not inexperienced, totally unprepared) to be president; he is unfamiliar with a lot (most?) important policy issues particularly foreign policy; and his 9 9 9 plan is a joke that would send the country into years or decades of chaos. Fortunately, there is no chance that 9 9 9 will ever even come up for a vote.

      Pro, If you care to, would you mind sharing your list in terms of experience and preparedness on the lot of announced Presidential candidates? Who takes the #1 spot and so on? I’m not being flippant. This is the type of discussion we should be having.

      Here’s what Doug Edelman has to say about Cain.

      Governors are prepared since they have had executive experience dealing with multiple branch governments and large bureaucracies.

      Senators and Representatives who have served in significant leadership positions are prepared.

      High-ranking military personnel are prepared because at that level, their jobs are heavily politized and they have life and death decision making responsibilities. It’s not so much a matter of rank for them as responsibility. Eisenhauer was clearly qualified, as would Marshall, McArthur, Colin Powell and probably many Joint Chiefs whose names aren’t well known have been. I don’t like Wesley Clarke’s politics, but from what I know about him, I think he had sufficient qualifications to be a viable candidate.

      A business leader with no government experience isn’t prepared. But there are some CEO’s who I might say were qualified. Immelt, although I despise the guy, is one. Trump was borderline, only because he claims to have had extensive experience domestically and internationally dealing with governments (I would want to know more about what that entailed).

      Former VP’s, obviously, are qualified.

      High ranking cabinet positions can add to a candidate’s other qualifications. For example, the Hildabeast was borderline qualified in 2008. She had been a Senator, and as an engaged wife of a President, she had exposure to the presidency. I wouldn’t have said at the time that she was clearly qualified. But now that she has be Secretary of State, she is certainly qualified.

      I don’t think Michelle Bachman or Rick Santorum, both of whom I agree with about 95% of the time, are qualified to be president. Voting doesn’t provide sufficient governing experience.

      As I see it, qualifications for the VP role are less, because the person will usually gain experience and knowledge being the VP, and because the adminstration will be in place if the president dies. If there was an active large-scale war in progress, I would want the VP to be as qualified as the president.

      Mr Cain is wildly unqualified. I don’t consider his CEO roles as credentials to be president at all. As the CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, his job was to shut down underperforming units and encourage the store managers to watch their bottom lines more closely. As CEO of the Restaurant Association, he was essentially a lobbyist (it actually is closer to being a credential than the Godfather’s role since he had to interact regularly with the federal bureaucracy). I don’t intend to insult Mr Cain. He has been a very successful and accomplished individual. I like the fact that he earned a mathematics degree and a degree in system’s analysis and worked in both fields. I like that he became a businessman and succeeded in multiple business roles. He is probably in the top .001% of successful and well-rounded people in the country. The problem is that he has no experience whatsoever leading an organization remotely similar to the US federal government.

      If Mr Cain was demonstrating a firm grasp of the issues and running a masterful campaign, I would give him credit for that and discount his lack of qualifications. But he is a dilettante on the issues; he published a plan for which I have contempt; he almost certainly entered the race as a vanity candidate; and he disproved his claim to be a problem solver by fumbling the very first problem his campaign had to face.

      The fact that Obama qualifications were a pack of lies, and that he was far LESS qualified than Cain doesn’t enter into my calculation.

      In addition, qualifications for the role is only one of the criteria. If I found Cain to be outstanding in philosophy, character, knowledge, leadership and temperment, I would ignore his lack of qualifications. I don’t. I think that he mouths talk radio conservative platitues (and doesn’t even keep them straight), his character is unknown since he hasn’t been vetted for high office, his knowledge is obviously low (many S&L posters are more informed), his leadership roles were below the level required, and his temperment is interesting and enjoyable but I’m not convinced that a person who plays the race card at the first opportunity has the disposition I would prefer in a president.

      But I’ll vote for him if he is the nominee.

      (Romney, Gingrich, Perry and Huntsman are qualified. Huntsman is more liberal than I want. Perry has made too many mistakes for my taste, even though his politics match my own. That leaves Romney and Gingrich. I currently prefer Newt, but will adjust based on his reaction to the inevitable onslaught he will face if Cain fades. I don’t have nearly the problems with Romney that others have, since I’m looking for a winner more than an idealogue and since I think the Tea Party Congress will provide the leadership to roll back the marxist tide.)

    • tranquil.night says:

      It doesn’t swallow well, especially given the current scenario, but I pretty much am in full agreement, especially now that Mark Blockhead has once again gone on camera and put his foot in his mouth.

      I’m still supportive of his continued participation in the campaign, because his redeeming skill at this point is the ability to listen to his faults, try and overcome them.

      If I can make a boring analogy, he’s Tebow: defying all the smug elitist pundits, but in need of some more refinement before ready to take the Lombardi.

      And this election is the Superest of all Bowls.

      A lot of people are openly worried about our default starter Mittens.

      Concur.

      Pro: 
“the Tea Party Congress will provide the leadership to roll back the marxist tide.”

      The Buckley Rule : pick the most conservative candidate who can win.

      The Rush Rule : vote for the most conservative candidate in a primary.

      The Petronius Rule : size matters; choose the candidate with the biggest coat tails.

      Why? Because we also need to win a majority in the Senate. A sixty-vote majority would mean repeal of ObamaCare, Dodd-Frank, etc. (here I assume that Brown, the two Sisters of Charity, Lugar, McCain, Gramnesty, et al., will toe the line).

      But even a simple majority would be wonderful. A Senate majority means several appointments to the Supreme Court and many new judges in the lower Federal courts. Note ages of justices in 2013 :

      Scalia 77
      Kennedy 77
      Ginsburg 80
      Breyer 75
      Thomas 65

      Wesley Clark, by the way, was passed over for promotion. He had a bad reputation in the Army, something involving lack of integrity, but details are impossible to come by due to the cone of silence imposed by the West Point protective association (WPPA).

    I smear a smell campaign. Don’t matter the pollitics folks. Anything of color and repub is not inherently racist.
    But if you “ARE” of color, and “ARE” leading the polls. You “ARE” a pervert.
    Yes, the same crowd that defended the “stained blue dress” are out in droves. I say, have a cigar and shut up. Funny, how the rainbow crowd welcome’s it’s own ain’t it? Not the color of their skin, but the content of their character. Yeah, right.
    As far as fittness for high office goes, How does one consitute a Nation out of nothing? The orginal G.W, did well. Showing people the door & going home worked in his time. I wish we would do the same in ours.

    D.N.C.: Democrats Negating Cain!

    Listen people, THIS IS A WAR! Don’t you realize it by now?

    Like the CIA, the Democrats infiltrate every part of society to break it down, or cause chaos? Republicans SUCK at doing the same things, copying Democrats, or reverse-engineering their tactics.
    They get control of all the school boards, teacher’s unions, chancellor’s, deans, Board of Regents, book publishers—EVERYTHING, and Republicans tactic is “Calm, cool, reasonable debate will eventually persuade people to our point of view.” –Nonsense!

    Republicans are so naive about reality, and are about 50 years behind the liberal-communist pace and tactics. While they have Saul Alinsky, Republicans have ……nothing. No ideas, no tactics, no infiltrations, no system to help conservatives get into positions of power….virtually nothing.

    So, now you have this sketchy woman getting close to Cain, and when the time was right, spring the trap. It may have taken 25 years, but the honey trap was still sprung when it needed to be. Forward planning to the Democrats.

    • tranquil.night says:

      Conspiracy is standard Democrat strategy by another name. They can’t express their intent or machinations to the public.

      Republicans aren’t that sinister, but they are a one note pony when it comes to facing off against them. They’ve had one move the past decade: The Cave. And people wonder why the current Ruling Class laughs at the rubes as they dictate over their desperate cries of resistance.

      When Republicans strategize, it’s on how they can Cave without effectively raising the Tea Party’s ire to meltdown point. So political jokes like the Super Committee Politburo are invented and Republicans start the negotiations by again breaking their no new revenues pledge, folding their cards, and coughing up a 300bil concession

      Good job securing those spending cuts boys. Yeah! They’ve really changed the direction of the conversation with all those 1 and 2 billion dollar continuing resolution spending caps!

  5. chainsaw says:

    I thinx da picture above confirms Cain guilt. He’s sending a signal to his posse that he owns Bialek. There is no other explanation for her to be pictured next to Cain vice on the end. Yep, that’s it alright, da man is guilty and this picture proves it. He needs to stop denying everything and start telling the truth. His wife of 42 years would appreciate as much.

    By the way and out of my sarcastic responds, has anyone come forward and admitted that they had an affair with Cain? I mean, I find it inconceivable that one has not come forward by now. No man bats zero when employing the techniques Cain is accussed of. Isn’t an affair the ultimate goal of improper sexual advances? Show me a mistress and then we can discuss Gloria’s clients!

    • Petronius says:

      chainsaw: “Show me the mistress….” Good point. Where there’s smoke there’s fire, right?

      So where’s the Rielle Hunter or Ashley Dupré? Where are the Twitter photos? Where’s the blue dress, the split lip, or the dead cat?

    • chainsaw says:

      Thanks, and honorable mention goes to Jennifer “only happened once” Flowers and Donna “doesn’t exist” Rice.

    I remember Bush mangling Musharreff’s name before he was president; seems he did OK in my book.
