Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain claims that the most-recent allegations of sexual harassment against him could be the result of a cash-strapped woman and her left-wing "activist" attorney, Gloria Allred.

Cain's campaign just issued a press release addressing the new allegations. In addition to the jabs at Allred and his newest accuser, Sharon Bialek, the former pizza baron says he'll hold a press conference tomorrow in Phoenix to further address the allegations.

Bialek, earlier today -- flanked by her headline-hound attorney, Allred -- accused the presidential candidate of sexually harassing her after the two had dinner together in 1997. She claims Cain put his hand up her skirt and pushed her head towards his crotch. More on that here.

Bialek claims she has no plans of selling the story, or suing Cain -- which is the best way to keep the allegations from actually getting investigated. According to Bialek, she wants Cain to "Just admit what you did. Admit you were inappropriate to people. And then move forward."

Somehow, a woman who isn't seeking any legal recourse for her currently unproven allegations needs legal representation. Enter: Gloria Allred.

See a list of Allred's often-infamous clientele here (it includes women who had sex with Tiger Woods, a woman who got a dick pic from former Congressman Anthony Wiener, and women who had sex with Tiger Woods).

In the release, Cain's camp says Allred "is a celebrity lawyer who specializes in generating publicity for herself and her clients."

The release goes on to call her 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."

As for his accuser, Bialek, Cain's camp describes her as a woman "with a long history of severe financial difficulties, including personal bankruptcy," who it suggests could have been paid to come forward with these "false allegations."

We plan to attend Cain's press conference. Check back later today for updates.

For Immediate Release

Herman Cain to Conduct Press Conference in Phoenix

In response to the allegations made today 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.

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.

ha ha ha ha!   Pokemon poetry?  Does that make him culturally literate? 

Don't matter how they try to portray him - soon as I learned he spent time in the employ of the Federal Reserve and that all his promoters are still trying to hide it - I'm done with him.

At first, Cain could not remember anything about this.  Then he remembered a few things.  Then he remembered a lot more.  We should welcome him to town.  He is here to give memory lessons to Sheriff Arpaio.  He also needs an Arizona campaign manager.  He'll offer the job to an unemployed former state senator from Mesa.

OK, first off, Allred allegedly is an active supporter of the Democrat party. Never mistake a Democrat for a leftist. Democrats are just one half of the status quo.

Second, the implicit message is that if someone is a leftist activist, their message is discredited. Applying that logic to Cain, he is an obvious right-wing activist, and we should also take whatever he says with a huge grain of salt.

Let's not forget there are other women that have made these claims against Koch-Cain. This woman ,has been the only one to step foward thus far.

Or could it be that the "Liberals" fear another Black man as the next POTUS, who happens to be a RepublKLAN? So they call up Gloria Allred to come up with such "unproven allegations", to smear a Black man. Why choose Cain? Because he's Black? Gloria Allred is pure trash. The sort that Eleanor loves. We're talking about women with a chip on their shoulder. The sort that you love to hate.

Discriminating against someone and derailing their career based on physical characteristics endowed to them by their creator is a serious offense.  From this vantage point, racial discrimination and sexual harassment are equally heinous acts based on physical characteristics of the target that cannot be changed.  How we got to this point that racial discrimination has become a thought stopping cliche' but sexual harassment/discrimination is still mocked as ridiculous shows how warped we are as a society. 

Personally I can't stand Herman Cain or Gloria Allred.  For perspective on this, think about if they were the boss at your place of employment - how long do you think that you would thrive under their leadership?  Not just the organization but you as an individual?  Doesn't your personal life experience tell you something when you observe either of these two?

Can't outsource pizza jobs to China and HC's presenters tried to hide the Federal Reserve aspect of his career and most of us never knew him but he has a meteoric rise?

666, that is a rather odd reference to Eleanor. What, exactly, has she done to YOU to make you want to reference her on these posts? Why are you making this a race issue?

And how many women have you sexually harassed? With your mentality, it's a sure bet that you have but are too ignorant to realize it.

P.S.  It's been my experience that men who feel the need compare themselves to a firearm are doing so to make up for their "Shortcomings."

no, not at all. we are not so petty.

we don't want a corporate shill who caters to big business reducing their accountability while taking away personal freedoms.

why would we want a guy who ran a business where nearly everyone makes minimum wage?
