Financial Motives?: Gloria Allred’s News Conference With Cain Accuser’s Ex-Boyfriend – Updated with Gloria Cain Interview

I thought that it looked bad for Cain, but I’m not a lawyer. Professor Jacobson of Legal Insurrection wasn’t impressed – he  thought the  whole press conference had a very seedy feel to it.

The truth is that the press conference shed little light on the truth.  The ex-boyfriend, who now is a physician in bankruptcy, said he sent Bialek to meet Cain in Washington D.C. in 1997 because the three had met at a convention afterparty, that Bialek went, that the boyfriend paid for the flight and room, that he never upgraded the room, that when she returned she said Cain touched her “inappropriately” but gave no details, and that they didn’t discuss it again until a few weeks ago.  That’s it.

Since Allred made a point of bringing up Cain’s “financial motives”, here’s some info on Zuckerman’s personal bankruptcy:

In September 2007, Stratford Center filed an action in the Illinois state court to reform the remaining three leases. The case was tried in a bench trial and on June 8, 2010, Judge Popejoy entered judgment in favor of Stratford Center. Judge Popejoy’s decision reformed the lease in question and awarded $187,657.00 in damages jointly and severally against Stratford Pediatric and Dr. Victor Zuckerman (“Zuckerman”), the principal physician in that practice.

On September 2, 2010, Stratford Center served a citation to discover assets on Chase Bank. Both Stratford Pediatric and Zuckerman banked at Chase. Under Illinois law, the service of the citation created a lien on Stratford Pediatric’s and Zuckerman’s accounts. 735 ILCS 5/2-1402(m)(2). On September 12, 2010, Chase responded to the citation by producing bank statements and identifying several accounts held by Stratford Pediatric and Zuckerman. These statements identified $10,117.49 held in Stratford Pediatric’s accounts and $47,507.60 held in Zuckerman’s accounts.

In May 2010 (after the bench trial, but before the judgment was entered) Stratford Pediatric sold its assets to Central DuPage Hospital for $333,000.00 in cash. This money was mostly transferred to Zuckerman’s personal accounts. He soon went on a gambling and day trading spree and lost all of the money. In July 2010, Zuckerman moved to Louisiana. On September 15, 2010, Zuckerman filed a chapter 11 petition in the Western District of Louisiana. His creditors include, among others, Stratford Center (with claims of $675,000.00), his ex-wife (with claims of $89,000.00), and the IRS (with claims of $50,000.00).

He claimed in the presser that he filed the chapter 11 reorganization bankruptcy …..“Due to many economic factors”.

Uh huh. Internet snoops have sniffed out another possible factor:

Anyhoo….

UPDATE:

Via Gateway Pundit: Now here’s someone I find to be a credible witness: Gloria Cain on Sharon Bialek: I Don’t Believe That Woman:

MORE:

I don’t believe a word of what Allred and her client are alleging, but that doesn’t mean Cain is completely off the hook. There’s also the small matter of his persistent lack of preparedness in interview after interview:

Michelle Malkin: The real Cain scandal: Video cringe alert:

It’s his continued lack of preparedness on, and familiarity with, basic domestic and foreign policy issues. Sorry, Cain fans. Tried to give him the benefit of the doubt. But like Rick Perry, Herman Cain is just not ready for prime time. The real Cain scandal: He can barely form a coherent thought on Libya when put on the spot and garbles collective bargaining 101 facts.

This Milwaukee Sentinel Journal editorial board session — all on video, in all its prolonged cringe-worthiness — sums up the problem with the Cain Train. The paper’s recap.

Read it all.

    From the weight of the various claims, testimonies, and peripheral evidence, I conclude:
    1) That Cain is being harassed with false allegations of sexual misconduct, specifically to derail his candidacy;
    2) That, his vibrant personality aside, he’s probably not the man we want in the Oval Office.

    Not the worst of outcomes, but not the best. Sometimes it works out that way.

    I’ve come to the same conclusion, sadly.

  3. Carlos Says:

    I’d still take a Cain with solid core values to a Romney with no core values at all, or to an Obhammud with evil values.

    Cain should have spent the last few years brushing up on who the president of Uzbyckistan is or rulings of the SCOTUS related to economic issues of the late Twentieth Century, but he didn’t. I don’t know if that shows hubris, ignorance or lack of caring, but at least he is capable of actually learning things (as opposed to the present occupant of the WH, who doesn’t have to learn anything because he knows it all already and besides, he won and no one else did.)

    Hopefully, Axelrod and the jackasses have thrown everything they have at Cain, but I wouldn’t count on it.

    Yeah, I still prefer him to Romney.
