Herman Cain Will Hold Press Conference Today in Arizona to Address Charges

Press release from the campaign:

Herman Cain to Conduct
Press Conference in Phoenix

In response to the allegations made [Monday] by Gloria Allred, Mr. Cain will conduct a press conference on Tuesday, November 8th at the Scottsdale Plaza in Phoenix, Arizona at 3:00 pm local time [5 p.m. ET].
It is noteworthy that Gloria Allred is a celebrity lawyer who specializes in generating publicity for herself and her clients.
Ms. Allred is a high-profile Democrat Party donor and activist who has given over ten thousand dollars to liberal Democrats like Barack Obama, Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer.
The questions the media should be asking are who’s paying for Gloria Allred’s fee, how did Ms. Bialek get introduced to Ms. Allred, and was she paid to come forward with these false accusations or was she promised employment?
After attacking Herman Cain through anonymous accusers for a week, his opponents have now convinced a woman with a long history of severe financial difficulties, including personal bankruptcy, to falsely accuse the Republican frontrunner of events occurring over a decade ago for which there is no record, nor even a complaint filed.
We will release more information as it becomes available.

    Slightly off topic, but tied into the Cain situation.  Team HillBuzz has decided to follow the Politico standard of journalism.  HillBuzz has an excellent new blog radio show. In response to the Cain smears, they detail OBAMA’S GAY EXPLOITS. It is compelling listening.  It includes a snippet of a man named Larry Sinclair describing an evening with Obama which is more credible than Bialek’s description of her evening with Cain.

    Question the media SHOULD be asking but won’t unfortunately.

    This woman is a good friend of Cains. I think she came forward to intentionally be discredited, in order to cut off further discussion of his past transgressions. This is helping Cain because no one is asking him about foreign policy, and other topics he knows nothing about.

    He is a democrat.  He should embrace it if it is true.  Andrew Sullivan would weep with joy.

    steve, are you a conservative?  This sort of attack is bigger than picking Perry or Romney over Cain.  I hope you recognize that.

    I do not like seeing anyone attacked (without basis).  Does Obama have a tendancy to go on the down low?  I assume not.  But if we are going to engage in grilling GOP candidates to such a degree that good people will not run, then we are at war and what is good for the GOP is good for the Democrats. 

    Becareful what you wish for.

    And the basis for this theory of yours?  Just wondering?

    steve benton: where your theory fails is Gloria Allred. If this were some elaborate scheme to discredit Allred, where’s the ‘gotcha?’

    MM notes Bialek has had several legal issues in Chicago, a place where judges can be very, very supportive of the Machine.

    Was just thinking of them: now that their eyes have been opened and all, if Hillary steps into the race, will the PUMAs and HillBuzz immediately jump on her bandwagon?

    Obama’s gay exploits were alluded to during the 2008 campaign. As with everything else, this remains hearsay and gossip.

    You’re prolly right about Gloria, spawn sister of Whorelado. I guess she wants to shake him down.

    Allred is a money vacuum, and you can bet this woman she took as a client is being paid something, somewhere, somehow.

    That definitely hurts her credibility, but does not support he is in on this.  If this was some consipracy, why would they have a meeting like that?  And Gloria Allred?  Please.  Are you telling me there was no other attorney available? 

    This stinks, but the idea Herman Cain planned this makes no sense.

    Look, I hate these charges because every second we spend on all this is a second wasted on vetting Cain. Now he’s the guy who was railroaded, and not the guy who couldn’t find his ass with both hands when asked the simplest question on foreign policy. Now he is a victim- not a guy that set up a litmus test for Mooslims to be in his cabinet. So, we’re not discussing the fact that Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 plan was, and IS D.O.A. ( DEAD ON ARRIVAL), we’re discussing bimbo eruptions. So, yeah, I guess you might say that I’m a conservative, Joe. Just not a blind one.

    A gets treated the way she claims by a main she claims is interviewing her for a job.

    It’s 1997.  The era of Sexual Harassment is in full swing, with 6- and 7-figure settlements common.  The woman tells…well, no one.  No one that matters, or who can be credibly quoted.  (“I told my boyfriend,” sounds like a bad novel).  This woman has had severe financial problems (we’ve seen the court filings) throughout her adult life.

    In spite of the super-friendly environment, she doesn’t file a claim?  Huh?

    Yes since college Obama having a Bj and smoking is crack with a pipe is common knowledge, it is not a big deal, Barney takes his pages to the Congress Bath room during breaks on House floor , they love the fact that he is a sleaze Obama is Ok to be a sleaze, Liberals love it, This time the problem is he is not ( Herman Cain is not a sleaze is is a real, A Christian no communist leanings and loves his wife, So they did not think he would do anything, He is black GOD well they don’t know HC he will look till he finds how they got this fat blond bitch to lie, he lawyer is Hillary Clinton friend, they despise HC they despise good and moral and every good thing in a man, by the way Obama is an expert in Foreign relations right? wrong he was a community organizer crack addict, and Michelle says the is the first time in my life I love my country,both of them can just leave and go to Venezuela where they are more socialist,

    I saw a YouTube video with Sinclair, and frankly I believe him. For one thing, he claims he performed oral sex on Obama, and did cocaine with him, on two different occasions. Why I believe him is pretty simple. If somebody really wanted to embarrass and humiliate Obama with a gay sex slur, they would be more likely to say Obama was the one giving the oral sex, not receiving it. And they would probably add more on top of that.

    It might be a lie, but its not gossip or hearsay, because its being stated directly by the guy who is the principal of the story. Gossip and hearsay is second-hand, I think.

    Wow, I never thought of that, and he was so clever he even tricked Gloria Allred into going along with it. What in the hell kind of stupid ass reasoning is that? Does he have a daughter? Maybe he should convince her to accuse him of molesting her at the age of twelve. By God they’ll forget all about his foreign policy peccadilloes then, won’t they? I’ve heard some stupid fucking shit before but this one takes the fucking cake.
