Cain accuser says her son encouraged her "to tell on him"

The only woman to so far come forward and publicly accuse Herman Cain of sexual harassment did so in part with her 13-year-old son's encouragement, she said Tuesday on CNN.

"He said, 'Mom, I think you need to do the right thing. I think you need to tell on him," Sharon Bialek said on CNN's "American Morning." "That confirmed it for me. If my son is saying it, I want to be the role model for him and other kids growing up."

Bialek alleges Cain groped her following a dinner in 1997. Cain is expected to address her claims in a news conference Tuesday afternoon, according to his campaign.

    Her 13 year old must be the neighborhood snitch /mamma's boy! Watch and see if this isn't some kind of "get even" thing by this bimbo. Cain acts too classy for this gal anyway.

    In other words, had she aborted her son she never would have told. How many women would have come forward had none of them aborted their own sons? The world may and does know. From 1973-2006, over 50 million legal abortions were performed in the US alone. Add to that number those illegally aborted from 1776-1972, and those done after 2006 (the last year that an official government survey was taken) and you arrive at approx. 120 million abortions. Not enough. Not near enough.

    It is all too convenient that now 10, 15, years later these women crawl out of the woodwork especially when their accusations a born of an era where it was open hunting season on men. Even an incorrect sideways glance meant a death sentence. A glance, or even a daydream stare into space were dubbed “leering” by overly zealous Human Services staff, pundits of diversity in the work place and the corporate elite meant career advancement for them. Perhaps when faced with the prospect of the American people having a choice of candidates with unique positions and viewpoints on election the NWO stepped up the heat and will continue to find any number of reasons to discredit Cain right out of the race.
