    When it is one's integrity I would think you would want to settle it for once and all and not just quiet it.

    In this country with a large resource you have a pretty good chance of getting off the hook by quieting them with a cash buyout or getting a OJ Simpson defense attorney team.
    So in your eyes then, and I don't want to put words in your mouth here, so you are free to make it more clear, but if I understand what you are saying here, all one has to do is offer a charge without proof, and that is enough for you? Does that standard apply to those in which you agree with ideologically as well?

    You could be right Maggie. I suspect that if Cain had not been leading in the republican polls, she would have. Perhaps she felt she should talk now or risk being saddled with a President Cain down the road and that bothered her?

    One other thing and please do not take this the worng way. I can picture Ms. Bialek fourteen years ago and would guess she was extremely hot. I* also suspect - like many hot young women - she was rather adept at saying NO to men making frequent advances. So the whole thing with Cain did not rise to the level of something she saw fit to do anything about in the way of legal action at that time.

    Women who have been sexually abused or harassed and didnt report it immediately usually has it fester...and when they see other women coming forward about the same individual they get mad all over again...there is strength or maybe comfort in numbers.
    Ask most any woman why they didnt report sexual abuse or harassment right away and the answers are always the same...for what no one would believe me..I couldnt prove it his word against mine...hes a bigshot ceo they will protect him...or..I handled it myself...
    All those reasons doesnt mean women are lieing...I dont think theres a single person on this forum who believes all 4 of those women are lieing

    Re: Lawyer: Cain accuser wants to tell her side of story

    again... a single isolated incident is not harrassment. according to her own story, this woman was not sexually assaulted and she was not harassed. If true, Cain made a rude crude remark to her. It's a smear campaign plain and simple. I wish I had a dollar for every rude/crude comment I have made over the last 48 years.

    I wonder if this was a democrat how the conversation would be going?

    Just wondering, carry on . . . .

    I wonder though if it bothers anyone that during the Clinton scandal Politico ran 17 stories on his crap, for Fast and Furious they have ran 14 stories, for Ayres/Obama friendship they ran 12, and for this so far in two weeks they ran 137 stories? does that tell anyone anything?....tink, tink, tink.....Bueler, Bueler?

    Founded in 2007, why would Politico write much about Clinton's scandal? And how much was there to write about Ayer's, which was nothing but a rightwing talking point?

    Not sure how, but do you deny the conversation would be different?

    Re: Lawyer: Cain accuser wants to tell her side of story

    I think all of this is ridiculous:

    her real side of the story is "something maybe happened 20 million years ago and now that this person might be an important figure in the world I'm going ot try to destroy his reputation"

    If people want my sympathy they shouldn't wait so long to talk about it . . . because waiting for a moment like this just turns the potential victim into a perpetrator on a different level.

    Of course: I don't believe for one second that it happened at all.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Of course not I am going to accept any charge without some proof. False charges do occur. At my son's college last year a coed came forth and said she was raped and two weeks later another unrelated female came forth and said she was raped. Within a week they discovered both made it up.

    But my point is that if someone accused me if doing something disgusting as sexually assaulting someone I would want my name cleared. I would volunteer for a lie detector anything . I would not want to just cover it up.

    Maybe these four women did make it up similiar to the episode at the college I spoke of. I don't know. But we do know Cain has already proven he's has lied about this whole incident.
