Chicago woman says Cain groped her

A Chicago woman said Monday that Herman Cain sexually groped her in 1997 when Cain was head of the National Restaurant Association.

Sharon Bialek made the claims during a press conference with famed defense attorney Gloria Allred. Bialek is the fourth accuser to come forward with allegations of inappropriate behavior by Cain.

Cain has vehemently denied committing sexual harassment.

    I personally think this woman is out to make a name for herself. Not an expert,but listening to her talk,she sounds like a high school girl that's trying to get attention

      Evidently her job interview did not go very well. She must have flunked good taste and morals school. Any woman who goes out with a potential boss or with anyone promising a job cannot be to bright or knows what it's all about in the first place and plans on giving favors in exchange for the job. In this case, either she was as dumb as a fence post, changed her mind, or did not like the proposed job/pay schedule and turned the job down. In any case, she lead him on so she should share the guilt, if indeed it even every happened, which I question. She definately looks and sounds like a gold digger to me.

    But what if Cain did do it? 3 or 4 women from the same company came forward. What are the chances of that many coming forward?

      You would be surprised. People are ruthless. If they're aredently opposed to his values and plans should he get elected, they'll do anything to stop it. It's not unheard of either for them to be compensated by other rivals for their stories.

    1- meaby so;meaby not, 2- that`s company and you`ve got my attention, 3- that`s a crowd and a pattern seems to be there,............. Now 4- the list just seems to be getting longer and longer. I`d say the odds are greater than 50% he`s (Cain) lying. After all it`s his word against her`s. --- Out here in Texas if we have a rogue bull that won`t stay in the pasture we can always change his mind from ass to grass with a sharp knife.

    Women, females, ladies. If you want to apply for a job you do it the right way and don't meet a man over dinner and drinks. She knew what he had in mind so what is she so upset over? Guess if she had gotten the job would she still be talking.... A lady would refuse to meet a man for drinks to DISCUSS A JOB.

    By the way Allred will be anywhere any time that she can get her name into the limelight. I don't care for Cain but what if she is lying? I think she is. If Allred is anywhere around someone is lying.

    CNN continues these stories without a shred of proof. Shameful "journalism"
    CNN is a joke. I live in Atlanta and we used to be proud of our big broadcaster but after the last ten years it is obvious of the left leaning agenda, poor standards and celebrity worship, it is only a forum for DNC.
    CNN-where is the story on Obama and Sarkozy calling Israeli PM a liar? That made headlines on Fox and Drudge but must be too close for comfort, you know, don't upset your Leader, Idol, Ruler!!

    Here we go again seeing all these senseless Tea Partiers here attacking Sharon Bialek and going Allah Allah to Herman Cain as if he were some kind of a saint. The truth is that he's only a man and I must say that Mrs. Bialek is rather attractive. But for the sake of fairess, I should give Mr. Cain the benefit of the doubt if the allegation is somehow false.

    She is rather cute and probably consented to being groped so that she could blackmail Mr. Cain for money which she got. Now, she wants more money by doing interviews and most likely she will have a book coming soon written by a ghost writer. That's business and that is American/
