I’m not an attorney, but based on the press conference she held today, the lastest woman accusing Herman Cain of misdeeds does not appear to have been sexually harassed.
She says basically that he made a move on her 14 years ago after she worked for an association affiliated with the National Restaurant Association. She didn’t notify the Restaurant Association and she didn’t file any complaints.
A travesty that will unfortunately detract from what might be other legitimate claims. It’s worth investigating who put her up to this.
The woman, Sharon Bialek, said while she was seeking Cain’s help getting a job with the Restaurant Association itself, he made an agressive sexual advance toward her, but that he stopped immediately when she told him she wasn’t interested. She alleged that he suggested engaging in sex with him would lead to a job at the association.
She hasn’t sought any money for revealing the alleged episode.
