Herman Cain's Accusers Might Join Forces
Two women who allege sexual harassment against the presidential contender are trying to arrange a joint press conference.
Some of Herman Cain's accusers might team up against the presidential hopeful who has called them liars.
Gloria Allred and Joel Bennett, attorneys for Sharon Bialek and Karen Kraushaar, respectively, said Wednesday that their clients might hold a joint press conference to counter what Cain said during a press conference Tuesday.
During the Tuesday event, Cain told reporters that allegations of sexual harassment leveled against him by at least four women are false, and he'd take a lie detector test to prove his case.
Cain's press conference followed one from Allred and her client Bialek, who was the first woman to give a detailed account of what Cain allegedly did to her when he was running the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s while she was employed there.
"Mr. Bennet's client suggested it, and the purpose would be to shed more light on Mr. Cain," Allred told The Hollywood Reporter when asked about the possiblity of a jont, televised press conference.
"My client is willing to do one with Mr. Bennet's client, Karen, but we don't have a date and time for that yet, and I don't know whether any of the other women will be participating or not."
Cain has been striking back hard against Bialek in particular ever since her press event with Allred. He called her a "troubled woman" on Tuesday and later his operatives laid out on the Internet Bialek's checkered financial and legal history in order to deiscredit her allegations.
"As Ms. Sharon Bialek has placed herself in the public spotlight through making patently false allegations against Herman Cain, it is only fair to compare her track record alongside Mr. Cain's," it says at CainTruth.com, which lists six lawsuits Bialek was a defendent in over the past 11 years.
