Update 1:52 p.m.: Allred has finally entered the press conference to introduce her client, registered Republican Sharon Bialek as the fourth assault victim. Allred informs that Cain offered Bialek a "stimulus package." And that Bialek had told two people of the assaults after they happened.
Bialek is now explaining how Cain sexually harassed her after she went back to him looking for a job. "He said, you want a job right?" According to Bialek's graphic detailing, Cain reached for her genitals and forced her face toward his pants, insinuating oral sex. "He put his hand on my leg, under my skirt, reached for my genitals. He brought my head toward his crotch," said the accuser. Bialek explains that she didn't file a complaint when it happened because she was not employed with the NRA at the time. And Bialek has no intention of filing a lawsuit, she said, but came forward so that Cain might admit his serial assault behavior. "I didn't really want to be here today" says Cain accuser. "I want you, Mr Cain, to come clean. Just admit what you did."
Mid-details the Cain campaign already denied the allegations, per a tweet from Politico's Jonathan Martin. "All allegations of harassment against Mr. Cain are completely false." After Bialek ended the conference, the Cain campaign came out with this official statement, denying the allegations.
Just as the country finally begins to refocus on our crippling $15 trillion national debt and the unacceptably high unemployment rate, now activist celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred is bringing forth more false accusations against the character of Republican front-runner Herman Cain.
All allegations of harassment against Mr. Cain are completely false. Mr. Cain has never harassed anyone. Fortunately the American people will not allow Mr. Cain's bold "9-9-9 Plan", clear foreign policy vision and plans for energy independence to be overshadowed by these bogus attacks.
