Maybe I’m naive, but one of the reasons I’ve wavered back and forth on whether Herman Cain is guilty or not of these sexual harassment allegations, is because it’s so hard for me to imagine that someone would just make something like this up. Especially an alleged “tea party Republican”. How evil and money grubbing must you be to fabricate a story that smears an innocent man’s name like this? It’s mind boggling to me.
A private investigator tested Cain’s and Bialek’s assertions with the latest law enforcement technology – a tool that shows when someone is lying with a 95% success rate. Nearly 70 law enforcement agencies nationwide use the voice software. After testing Cain’s voice from his news conference the other day, the investigator is convinced that Cain believes what he says. He say’s “there is no doubt Cain is innocent”.
CBS ATLANTA reports:
Private investigator TJ Ward said presidential hopeful Herman Cain was not lying at a news conference on Tuesday in Phoenix.
Cain denied making any sexual actions towards Sharon Bialek and vowed to take a polygraph test if necessary to prove his innocence.
Cain has not taken a polygraph but Ward said he does have software that does something better.
Ward said the $15,000 software can detect lies in people’s voices.
CBS Atlanta’s Mike Paluska played Cain’s speech for Ward into the software and watched as it analyzed Cain’s every word.
If he is hiding something this thing would have spiked way down here,” said Ward. “He is being truthful, totally truthful. He is a man with integrity and he talked directly about not knowing any incident he is accused of.”
Bialek’s story gets a very different reaction.
During the section of Bialek’s news conference where she says, “He suddenly reached over put his hand on my leg under my skirt and reached for my genitals he also grabbed my head brought it towards his crotch.”
During the analysis of that section the software said “high risk statement.” Ward said that means she is not telling the truth about what happened.
“I don’t think she is fabricating her meetings,” said Ward. But, she is fabricating what transpired.”
Of course she’s fabricating. We knew everything we needed to know when she retained Gloria Allred. My God, why did I ever doubt it?
I’ve heard some Republicans say in recent days that Herman Cain needs to do a press conference with his wife standing at his side, facing the allegations together. How dare they. What if she’s a shy woman who, while convinced of his innocence, is mortified by these allegations? What if the limelight doesn’t appeal to her – especially a limelight trained on her face while these lurid allegations are recounted for her reaction? No sir. That’s a private decision I would not second guess.
What I’m now convinced we have been witnessing is a well orchestrated smear campaign against Herman Cain. That was my first impression and first impressions are usually right.
The other day, I said, “If these allegations against Cain are false, a monumental injustice has been done not only to an innocent man, but to the entire country denied the opportunity to vote for him. If they are true, well - I don’t want to see a serial lecher and liar become the Republican standard bearer.”
Well, we don’t have a serial liar or lecher on our hands with Cain – we’re seeing a monumental smear campaign against an innocent man. The only question is whether the smears are coming from the Republican establishment or the left-wing smear machine, and I’m betting on the latter.
John Nolte, Big Journalism: Columbia Journalism Review Slams Politico’s ‘Frenzied, Single-Minded Focus’ On Herman Cain
Now that we’re learning something aboutCain’s accusers and how the National Restaurant Association settlements agreements were handled, Politico’s unwillingness to give us specific details in that mega-story of theirs is starting to make some sense, at least to me.
What we’re now discovering is that the facts are much less troubling than what was ginned up in our collective imaginations that were fueled only by Politico’s maddeningly vague allegations and innuendo. So now you have to wonder if the 144 story (and counting) feeding frenzy Politico ’s journOlisted up over the last ten days wasn’t all smoke and mirrors designed to cover up the fact that their original story was nowhere near worthy of the Normandy-like roll out they organized and commanded.
The there just isn’t there.
Cain has started his own equivalent of Obama’s “Fight The Smears” campaign website: CainTruth: Getting The Truth Out About Herman Cain.
In Obama’s case, the website was launched to control the damage truthful stories were having on his candidacy. With the MSM’s help, it was an effective tool at beating back the truth.
CainTruth, on the other hand, really is about fighting unfair smears like these perverted sexual allegations. With an MSM all too willing to do Obama’s bidding this campaign season, it’s a much needed development:
An official campaign effort, Cain Truth is a blog-style website built directly by the Cain campaign itself. The featured headline is, “Who is Sharon Bialek?”, while another article displays Mr. Cain’s statement on the allegations advanced by “activist celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred.”
Clearly, the Cain campaign is attempting to sustain the momentum that it has picked up in recent weeks while directly confronting the allegations that have been directed toward Mr. Cain.
