Evidence mounts against Cain

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.

But Kraushaar family members who spoke to The Daily said the only lies were coming from Cain.

“His denial of the whole thing, and his making light of it, seems to me to be more damaging to his character than the initial allegations,” said Karen Kraushaar’s sister-in-law, who asked not to be named. “If he would have just come out and said, ‘This is what happened,’ it would have been so much better for everybody.”

Herman Cain steals a page from Sharron Angle’s Pravda playbook

A compelling tale of sexual harassment by a non-anonymous source begs more than an insulting campaign pitch:

'I love that Greta'

“Activist celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred is bringing forth more false accusations against the character of Republican front-runner Herman Cain,” the statement said. “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.”

Translated: You should only ask me questions I want to answer, which mirrors what he said Saturday night when reporters asked about the multiple allegations against him.

“Where’s my chief of staff? Please send him the journalistic code of ethics,” Cain added when pressed to comment on the harassment allegations.

Cain continued to blast the media’s coverage of the allegations.

“If I were running this campaign the way the pundits thought I ought to be running this campaign, I would have dropped out in August,” said Cain to reporters.

Cain is starting to sound like former Nevada senatorial nominee Sharron Angle, the dangerously deluded church lady who couldn’t even beat Harry Reid.

Maybe it’s me, but I’d want to clear my name if someone was lying about my conduct. If Sharon Bialek is making this up, sue her for defamation of character.

Or just let Fox do it for you. Bill O’Reilly didn’t even talk about today’s accusations, but he did have a segment about the media’s “obsession” with the Cain story. Sean Hannity hasn’t ignored it, he’s named it: “Anatomy of a Smear Campaign.” Dick Morris said the accuser is obviously lying because she hasn’t held a job for 13 years.

“The only advance she wants is a cash advance,” said the toe-sucking slimeball.

What took her so long?

If you said 7 you win the “How Long Before Gloria Allred Capitalizes on the Herman Cain Sexual Harassment Scandal” contest.

That’s not to say Allred’s client, who will speak out today on alleged sexual harassment at the hands of Cain, isn’t telling the truth. I’m just pointing out that her lawyer has been involved in scandals involving Michael Jackson, O.J. Simpson and Charlie Sheen and every D-Lister in between.

Premature adjudication

No means no!

Everyone hates Brett Favre these days, and no doubt he’s brought some of it upon himself. But we’ve reached the piling-on stage, with seemingly everyone ready to believe two massage therapists who allege Favre harassed them, despite obvious red flags.

Two massage therapists are suing Brett Favre, saying they lost their part-time jobs with the New York Jets after complaining about sexually suggestive text messages from the veteran NFL quarterback.

Claiming they were subjected to sexual harassment and job discrimination, Christina Scavo and Shannon O’Toole are seeking unspecified damages from Favre, the Jets and a Jets massage coordinator.

While the women didn’t say they received any messages directly from Favre, he referred to Scavo in a message proposing a meeting with her and a third, unidentified massage therapist, Monday’s lawsuit says.

“Kinda lonely tonight,” he added in a subsequent message to the third masseuse, the lawsuit said. “I guess I have bad intentions.”

Sounds like obnoxious flirting to me, and if complaining about it actually did cost them their jobs, why wait more than two years to file suit?

Meanwhile, I’m watching some bleached blond pop psychologist on cable news diagnose Favre with “socially reinforced narcissism,” a disorder shared by almost anyone who ever played high school football, let alone 297 consecutive NFL games.

I suspect he’s guilty of being an entitled rogue, but again, what do we expect from a pro athlete? If the massage therapists are indeed telling the truth, the liability lies with the Jets, not with Favre. Let’s not trivialize sexual harassment by accepting every dubious charge at face value.
