The ex-boyfriend of the Chicago woman who alleges she was sexually harassed by Herman Cain confirms Sharon Bialek’s account.
Bialek came forward last week and alleged Cain put his hand up her skirt and groped her when she asked his help in finding a job. She and Zuckerman say Bialek met Cain several times while she was employed by the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation in the 1990s.
In a statement read to reporters in Shreveport, La., Zuckerman says Bialek went to dinner with Cain in Washington and returned “upset. She said Mr. Cain had touched her in an inappropriate manner.”
Zuckerman, a pediatrician, said he was not paid to give his story, adding he’s never been sued for malpractice or charged with a crime.
Cain denies harassing Bialek and claims he doesn’t even know her.
Gingrich enjoys Sapphic poetry night at L5P's Charis Books
With Newt soaring to a virtual first-place tie in the latest poll of GOP voters we’re sure to hear plenty more about this sordid chapter from his past.
Jackie Gingrich told the Washington Post on January 3, 1985, “He walked out in the spring of 1980 and I returned to Georgia. By September, I went into the hospital for my third surgery. The two girls came to see me, and said Daddy is downstairs and could he come up? When he got there, he wanted to discuss the terms of the divorce while I was recovering from the surgery.”
That’s not all:
One former aide describes approaching a car with Gingrich’s daughters in hand, only to find the candidate with a woman, her head buried in his lap. The aide quickly turned and led the girls away. Another former friend maintains that Gingrich repeatedly made sexual advances to her when her husband was out of town. On one occasion, he visited under the guise of comforting her after the death of a relative, and instead tried to seduce her. In certain circles in the mid-1970s, Gingrich was developing a reputation as a ladies’ man.
Newt Gingrich, ladies man?!?
You can tell a lot about a person by what they request on their Amazon wish list. (Just having an Amazon wish list says enough.)
This 40something male, who shall remain nameless (thus the absence of a link), has roughly 800 items listed, including 121 costumes:
An “adult men’s Halloween Cousin It” wig ($49.99) also makes the cut. Unfortunately, the “Shabby Security Guard” costume he requested is no longer available.
I’m so relieved the healing process is underway at Penn State. Moreover, I’m glad the media hasn’t forgotten the true victims in this story — the poor Penn State students coming to grips with the perils of idolatry.
