Looks like Herman Cain isn’t going to take these accusations lying down. He’ll meet them head on. He just has to get a good feel of the situation.
After a fifth accuser has pointed out Cain for his free hands, he decided to address the issue with this email that went out to supporters:
“The fact is that Ms. Bialek has had a long and troubled history, from the courts to personal finances – which may help explain why she has come forward 14 years after an alleged incident with Mr. Cain, powered by celebrity attorney and long term Democrat donor Gloria Allred,” the email says.
On Monday, Bialek told reporters that, in 1997, Cain put his hand under her skirt and pushed her head toward his crotch. Cain’s campaign calls the allegations “patently false.”
In an effort to discredit Bialek, the email lists six specific civil lawsuits in which Bialek was a defendant, in addition to citing a report saying that Bialek was sued over a paternity matter in 1999. The email also argues that Bialek has filed for bankruptcy twice and worked for nine employers over the last 17 years.
“The questions should be – who is financing her legal team, have any media agreed to pay for her story, and has she been offered employment for taking these actions?”
We see Cain finally trying to get a handle of the situation. Still, it may be too little, too late. After five women have come out, there may be no turning back for the former Republican frontrunner.
