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.

    She is not the fourth to "come forward". If there is evidence charge him ,if not stop covering the acusations and cover the actual issues that matter.

    Anyone who represented by Gloria Allred is already suspect.

    Why didn't she come forward 14 years ago? Why didn't she come forward when Herman Cain first announced his candidacy?

    There's something very wrong with this story...

      I imagine that you wouldn't since you're probably gay anyway. Not that I have anything against gay people, but could you post under a different name here. The fact remains that I'm not that way!

    What if he did that?
    Do you think that he would grope Queen Elizabeth II at the White House?
    I doubt it.

    I feel like in 1992. But it didn't hurt Bill Clinton too much either. But then Mr Cain is no Mr Clinton.

    If a democrat might have done this, all the repubs would be screaming for the dems head. Fox would have 24/7 Rush, Coulter and Hannity blatherings. Since it's one of theirs, ehhh, no big deal, just a case of liberal character as sas sination.

    The Attorney for the woman who was going to come forth, said it was similar to his clients account of the harrassment.( I think her story has not come out yet). So if this woman has a like story, it may give her crediblity?

    Why am I not surprised by this development? Then again, nothing these right-wing politicians do surprises me! These creeps are all alike, none of them are any good. Thanks to the ignorance of the general public, these creeps manage to get themselves elected over and over again!!!

      I agree we have to educate the public on the dangers of electing right-wingers. How will we ever accomplish our liberal dream of a bankrupt and socalist America with them blocking us at every turn.

    Now I expect to see a lot of right-wing nutjobs here vomit their ignorance over what a "great" guy this Herman Cain is on this web page. It seems that these right-wing politicians are always the least moral of them all but try telling that to all the ignoramuses out there!
