Larry Sinclair Or Some Crazy Accusations More Equal Than Others — Herman Cain, the black businessman seeking the Republican nomination for president who was subject to anonymous and unspecific allegations regarding sexual misconduct finally got to face an accuser, Nov. 7, when Sharon Bialek, a Chicago resident with a past history of irresponsible behavior, held a press conference with her lawyer at her side. Yes, she went into specifics. No corroboration, but there were certainly specifics.
The old, dying but still dangerous, dinosaur old media haven’t stopped talking about it since. Rest assured, though, they will quiet when Cain’s poll numbers drop to a level they deem safe.

On June 18 of that year, Larry Sinclair, a Chicago resident with a past history of irresponsible behavior, held a press conference with his lawyer at his side in which he went into specifics. No corroboration. but certainly specifics.
Did the old dinosaurs discuss it for weeks? Don’t be silly. Some crazy, unprovable allegations are just more equal than others.
