Former boyfriend of Cain accuser backs her account

(CNN) - A former boyfriend of Herman Cain accuser Sharon Bialek said Monday that she told him in 1997 that Cain touched her inappropriately after the pair had dinner together in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Victor Zuckerman told a news conference that Bialek came back to Chicago from the trip and told him what happened.

    Maybe with a man corroborating, Cain's defenders might just see there's a possibility up there that a man so disrespectful to the former Speaker of the House, might actually have mistreated women.

    @ALPHA-Sorry I missed your inquiry. I am going to write this slowly, because I don't want to confuse you. Remember when we lost 8 million jobs in the last three years of the Bush/republican error? We are now adding jobs, and almost 2.5 million jobs have been added under Obama. (Compared to 8 years of Bush and a net gain of 1 million jobs.) As for the high cost of living, energy costs have risen dramatically, and that affects every phase of our cost of living. Yet, your party continues to fight alternative sources of energy. Solyndra was a Bush favorite in 2006. Check out all he did for that company. I cannot imagine you are against EPA regulations, and are not happy with clean air and water. At least let me say that Bush added $5.5 trillion to our national debt.

    What a clever "liberal plot"! They in 1997, knowing Herman Cain would run for President in 2012, convinced this woman to make up this story (and tell her boyfriend) to discredit the poor man. Now that's devious! It seems they also got at least three unrelated women to share in this sinister plot.

    This is almost as good a plan as an earlier liberal plot well supported in the conservative community. In 1956, knowing a newborn from Kenya would want to run for President of the United States, liberals inserted a birth announcement in the Honolulu paper and the hospital records of Quen's Hospital. The little boy was an obvious choice for President – a black child from a non-wealthy family.

    Let it go folks... Cain is a power-grubbing horn dog.

    I am sure Mr. Cain has 999 reasons to say this is false and they are lying and conspiring against him.

    So, perhaps you should be writing sit-coms or daytime serial television episodes. How irrational ARE you? You just think you can "guess" what happened? And more than that you think you can "guess" WHY?

    Mr Cain your supporters don't mind what you did. They believe women are to stay homes and they are second class citizens. The problem is many families can't survive without both husband and wife out working. Many kids have also to work. A result of continued republican's assault on American workers. A few decades ago pay ratio between top executive and average worker was 40:1 now its more than 500:1.

    OK all of you so Smart libs and DEMS where is the evidence? what he is telling you is second hand news from 14 years ago, And he can remember what happened 14 years ago NOT. You folks are so blind at getting herman cain that the truth would not matter to you anyway. You folks can tell me you can remember what happened 14 years ago? This Peds doctor just goes to show you that how untrustworthy he is anyway. So go ahead and bash herman cain without any proof especially from this guy that was not even there. You folks are so gullable that you would beleive anything. I thought this country was built on Innocent until proven guilty, because i would really hate to have my life on the line with you folks judging ME. This sounds like more of Living in IRAN or IRAQ where you are guilty for anything and hanged for it, GO live under the rock you crawled out from under and let people who can see what is going on here tell you what the truth is, because you are unable to determine what the truth is on your own

    Thank you, Dr. Zuckerman for sticking up for your friend. Take note, Mr. Cain, Dr. Zuckerman is demonstrating for you how a man shows respect for a woman.

    The fact is there were TWO and ONLY TWO people there that know exactly what happened. I'm sure the truth lies somewhere between the two stories. Doesn't this woman know job interviews are not conducted in cars, bars and hotels?

    Yes Phillip M its all a left wing conspiricy, which we have been planning for close to 15 years now. You see we knew that a pervert named Herman Cain would be running for President because we consulted our liberal crystal balls and looked into the future,and when the time was right we put our plan into action. Dude get a life.

    Dear Wire Palladin, S. F.

    The information you have apparently came from MSNBC or was it Current? The initials S.F. are good enough to discredit anything that you say. Sorry, Charlie.
