The Loud Thumping Of Shoes Dropping

The damn has officially broke. I had mentioned in an earlier Cain post that the presumption of innocence will stay with Cain as long as 1)nothing further emanates from the two sexual harassment complaints, and 2) no other victims come forward. On Friday we heard that the one victim who through her attorney requested the NRA unbind her from her confidentiality agreement so that she could “set the record straight” and rebut Cain’s blanket denials. Although the NRA gave her permission to do just that, she decided that it was all in the past and did not want to open up old wounds, understandably and totally within her right. At that point I figured that the storm has past and the HMS Cain had braved the shoals unscathed. now this:

A fourth woman has accused Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain of sexual harassment–this time in public. Sharon Bialek told reporters in a press conference Monday that Cain groped her and exhibited “sexually inappropriate” behavior toward her when he was head of the National Restaurant Association.

Unlike the other two accusations, we have a live person here, willing to identify herself and go into detail as to exactly what she says Cain did to her, not good.

After dinner, the two were sitting in his car when she claimed he “suddenly reached over and put his hand on my leg under my skirt and reached for my genitals” and moved her head toward his crotch.

“I was surprised and shocked, and I said, what are you doing? You know I have a boyfriend,” Bialek recalled saying. “This is not what I came here for.”

Bialak claimed that when she protested, Cain replied, “You want a job, right?

Naturally, the Cain camp has declared these accusations as baseless as well.

We had talked about a pattern before, that given the nebulousness of sexual harassment, it’s complete subjectivity in both defining and identifying it, that if nothing else surfaces, given his decades long tenure in private business management, that the benefit of the doubt must be afforded to him.

And granted, having Gloria Alred in tow does not lend itself to credibility, but now I’m wondering that since the green light has now flashed, what other stories will come to the surface.

    I just watched the presser, and it wasn’t good for Cain. If she’s lying she’s certainly going all in. She claims to have witnesses in the form of friends she told when it happened. Of course they could be lying too, but regardless – this isn’t good. Unless she folds, I predict that this is it for him. He’s gone.

    Her claims aren’t sexual harassment, it’s sexual assault. The cops ought to look into it. Of course there are statutes of limitations and all, but at least there are some details for the press or other groups to investigate, like dates, hotel stays, specific meetings, etc. We’ll see what happens, but I still think more evidence is needed. Anyone can claim anything as we saw it with Toyota, suddenly everyone had a fucked up gas pedal.

    If this woman is true in her statements, he should have been or be tried for it. At the end of the day it’s her word against his, but at least there can be some investigation of credibility, and what went down as far as dates, meetings, etc.

    I’m glad you posted that video, Kimpost, there is a big difference between reading a text and watching the victim speak for herself. She looked very credible to me, for what that’s worth.

    but at least there can be some investigation of credibility, and what went down as far as dates, meetings, etc.

    I don’t see how we can possibly do that. Her presence may be verified with receipts and all, but unless there was a witness, sitting in the car, it still boils down to her word against his.

    Keep in mind that there exists no legal means of verifying credibility, she was not under oath, nor was she cross examined. She read from a prepared text only.

    We could get answers to questions like: Was she there? Did they meet? Was her room upgraded by Cain? If it was, then how does Cain explain that? And is that something he generally does?

    Did she tell some of her friends that Cain came on to her? If she did, and they are willing to back that up, then it comes down to credibility.

    The answers to those questions might be bad enough for Cain.

    She might not have enough for a criminal case (if even possible after all this time), but it sounds as if she has enough to bury him politically.

    Seriously? I thought you were a cop no? If someone makes a claim and there are no witnesses do the cops just say, “Well there’s nothing to go on but your word.” Does it boil down to lucky for the victim this time around the person they are accusing looks guilty, or unlucky for the victim that they just didn’t sob enough when telling their story? If so, what the hell am I paying taxes for? I mean at the very least let’s find out if people were at the right place at the right time. Find out if they met several times after or not and why. Find out if he did/didn’t eventually get her a job and why? You know, dig for more evidence to the story. How many times now have claims from both sides been made against a person in campaigns or against high profiled people only to find out there were bits and pieces conveniently left out. How about that IMF chief, Strauss-Kahn who was jailed? She seemed credible. Basically if everything in her story ads up, then this is serious, but it should be looked into as closely as possible. Certainly more than I saw her on video, and she looks credible. As for Cain, staying quiet isn’t going to work anymore, so he should start speaking up in my opinion.

    Why is Stifler’s Mom accusing Cain of sexual assault ?

    When I first read this I thought “hmmm, finally actual substance, unlike everything prior to this”. Then I saw the press circus, and saw her statement, and laughed out loud at the TV. Cain grabbed her head and pushed it toward her crutch, and MOLESTED her, and her reaction was to say “dude, I’ve like totally got a boyfriend.” Yep. I believe that.

    Of course this destroys Cain as if he goes against Obama, the slogans “HERE’S MY STIMULUS PACKAGE” and “YOU WANTED A JOB RIGHT?” will reduce him to a joke and boarder line (black) rapist: even if he’s 100% innocent.

    And the charge against Dominique Strauss-kahn was dropped I believe due to a lack of credibility with the witness. He certainly is not in jail.

    On the plus side, if any substantial truth comes out that reveals Cain did sexually harasses someone, and thus he has been lying and taking advantage of a lot of good will, the right will cut him up into eight pieces and devour him.

  20. Poosh

    Agree with Kimpost.

    Cain is very easy to destroy.

    People just aren’t listening. It’s no good to get an outsider in. Palin was an outsider who was a GOVERNOR with executive experience, far more experience than Obama and many regular politicians. Cain, on the other hand, is out outsider who is JUST a very good businessman. He can’t even answer a fucking question about abortion correctly, why? I guarantee you anything he doesn’t give a shit about abortion (and why should he) but his inept campaign team are stumblering around trying to get him to say slogans that will appeal to conservative voters. It’s inauthentic because he’s a businessman, a great one, but one who is only concerned with business and PERHAPS economics, but I’m not 100% sure – there is a difference between being good at business and being educated in economics.

    Do you really want someone who spent most of his life trying to make a profit at the expense of someone else president?

    Do you really want someone who has no knowledge of how Washington works, let alone International Politics, as president?

    Do you want the guy who sold pizzas or the guy who went to fucking Harvard and has already won a Nobel peace-prize?

    Do you want the bourgeois exploitatior who has never cared about the plight of the worker? Or do you want Obama, who cares about the poor, who are especially hurting during these rough times, rough times caused by GREED, the kind of thing that drove Hermain Cain to where he is today.

    The nope was response to not any DNA in this latest allegation to which I was agreeing. I know there was DNA in the Kahn case Rich, but they also dug further after the initial claim, and even after finding DNA dug further and found a major character flaw in the so called victim. That kind of digging should be done here as he’s running for the highest office in the land, and one of the two is lying. I think the American people deserve to have clues as to who that would be.

    I fervently hope I never get selected to a jury either CM.

    First off, I have to work and jury duty, in today’s legal system, is a travesty in my opinion. I hold no illusion that I will ever get a jury of my peers either, because my peers also have to work and the only people that tend to end up on these things are morons hoping to cash in.

    Secondly I am all but guaranteed a dismissal from jury duty – as has happened every time I have shown up when called up – as soon as anyone finds out I am a conservative. That’s because in blue Connecticut neither the defense nor the prosecution ever want to take the risk that someone they can not influence with emotion and slight of hand might use logic and throw their carnival out of whack.

    I have to also admit that I certainly also hope I avoid ever needing a jury, because of people like you, though. You pretend I am the one with the bias, but seem unable to grasp your own. If the roles where reversed and we where discussing Obama, for example, instead of Cain, I have a feeling you would be telling us we need to wait until ALL the evidence is in, not to rush to judgment, making the exact same argument I am now – that this is a politically motivated attack and likely to pan out to be abso-fuckin-lutely nothing – and chiding us for rushing to judgment.

    Sure, due diligence is always necessary, but with the Strauss-Kahn case, there was evidence separate from just her word. Not only was the alleged assault reported in a timely manner, but there was bruising and other evidence of a some struggle, along with the DNA. Here, though, we have none of that, and that is why I said that unless there was a witness that was actually in the car with them at the time, it would be impossible to know what really happened., no evidence, no witness corroborating one side over the other, nothing but a he said/she said.

    Yes that’s how they all speak Poosh. You know it.

    Flirting whilst married or trying to sleep with another woman whilst married is not something worthy of the claim of “sexual harassment”.

    It certainly can be considered sexual harrassment depending on the circumstance. Being married is irrelevant to that. But what you seemed to be saying is that it’s irrational to consider his behaviour ‘wrong’ despite the fact that he was married. I would disagree, I think most people would find that behaviour ‘wrong’ (as a married man) even if they understood or sympathised with it.

    it may be morally wrong TO YOU but that is different to groping or shouting “nice tits love!” at a woman

    But sexual harrassment doesn’t just involve groping (which, as someone else pointed out is actually sexual assault) or shouting “nice tits love”. It’s usually much more subtle than that. Often it’s a pattern of behaviour (which is why the word ‘harrassment’ is used). That’s not to say a single event can’t also fit the description.

    You said:

    Actually, again your wrong CM, unless the harasser has some sort of hold over the harassed, ie boss, coworker, etc. It is NOT sexual harassment, It could be construed as assault if, when told its unwanted, the harasser persists.

    Sexual harrassment (or assault) doesn’t necessarily have to include a position of power, or any other situation where “the harasser has some sort of hold over the harassed”. And assault is assault, harrassment is harrassment. Harrassment can be any number of things, and can be a pattern. Assault is an involuntary sexual act. Whether it’s harrassment or assault is not determined by whether one person “has a hold” over the other.

    How does the legal definition differ from the regular definition?

    That reminds me – I had one of the best meals of my life in this little place on the river in Natchez. I think it had the name Magnolia in the title – I should look it up.

    The eating wasn’t too shabby in Vicksburg too if I recall correctly (mind you after a full day of marching around the awesome National Military Park any food was gonna taste even better than it probably was).

    Eating in either Natchez or Vicksburg you may have been exposed to Mississippi or Louisiana cookin’. You just can’t go wrong dining on that border.

    I however live on the opposite border, but much can be said for deep fried too. Plus I think we have more alligators on our side. Mississippi River moves too fast that far up.
