Cain Accuser: Serial Frivolous Complaint Filer?

Remember how Democrats attempted to discredit Paula Jones when she leveled accusations of sexual harassment against the then-sitting President of the United States?  Of course, they based their descriptions of Clinton’s accuser not on the facts of her life, but on prejudices against lower middle class white women.  “Drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park,” Clinton advisor James Carville said, “you never know what you’ll find.”

Well, now that Herman Cain’s first accuser has been identified, we’re finding that she’s not similar to another image from left-wing lore, the hard-working women victimized by the evil Republican boss.  Now, to be sure, some bosses are indeed boorish and to prey on their attractive female employees.  And they should be held to account for their actions.

But, it doesn’t seem Herman Cain is such a man.  Seems the woman who accused the Republican of sexual harassment filed another complaint at her next job.  Ace, who alerted me to the article speculates that she suffers from “Complainey-Face Syndrome“:

Kraushaar’s former supervisor at the INS, who was named in Kraushaar’s complaint, characterized the 2003 complaint to ABC News as “frivolous,” and said Kraushaar may have been offered a few extra sick days as compensation.

The supervisor alleged that Kraushaar had a “poor work ethic.”

The supervisor, a self-described Democrat, decided to speak out about Kraushaar’s complaint because of “doubts about her credibility.”

This is why it is unfair for women accusing of sexual harassment to hide behind their anonymity. When they’re anonymous, we can’t confirm the veracity of their accusations. “She,” Ace adds

. . . tried to get a ridiculous amount of money out of the INS — plus a pricey paid year off and paid tuition at grad school! — over a vague complaint of “unfair treatment.” Because she wasn’t permitted to work from home — how many people are? or were, especially, in 2002 or whenever?

You can bet if the accused were a Democrat, our friends at Politico would have unearthed this information before filing their story.  And if, on that occasion, they even ran the story, the past of the accuser would play a very prominent part, perhaps figuring in its very headline.

  1. Speaking of sex scandals, do you think Jerry Sandusky wishes he were a Hollywood director (Roman Polanski, Victor Salva) or a Democrat politician (Gerry Studds, Sam Adams, Barney Frank) right about now?

  2. She gives every indication of being one. Paula Jones aside. how did then Candidate Bill Clinton survive the Jennifer Flowers scandal? If memory serves me correctly a state trooper corroborated her ascertions. Didn´t he mysteriously disappear shortly after? What magicians those Democrats are, they can make people disappear and pull up others like rabbits out of a hat.

  3. When I first heard the Carville remark, it seemed to me to beg the question why the President would be using $20s in trailer parks trolling for “dates”.

  4. The accusers are talking about getting together in a joint blabfest for a high-tech gang banging.

    Ann Coulter gives one plenty enough reason to compare the Cain innuendo flood with how Axlerod trashed Obama’s opponents in his rise through crooked Chicago politics.

  5. How are you making this a Democratic or Republican issue ? It is a right or wrong issue. If he only had one woman stepping forward perhaps we could say it is a smear tactic , but 4 ,2 of which he settled with.
    Also , in regards to Politico- they did notify him in advance that this story was about to unfold. If he really had his wits about him , he would of had been prepared for this and not flip flopped on all of his answers regarding this problem

  6. I’m beginning to feel this story has reached an end point. The 2 accusers have disappeared. Neither are credible. Their personal stories are getting worse. The first is headed into bankruptsy. The second is a serial accuser. Sure, the anonymous women can come out and there is plenty of time for that, but they will face the same scrutiny. Will they have the stomach for it? Cain’s candidacy has gained new momentum, which I found to be funny. I never thought he would come this far, but the accusers have overplayed their hand.

  7. How are you making this a Democratic or Republican issue ? It is a right or wrong issue.

    If it were a right or wrong issue, Bill Clinton would never have become President — or would have been forced to resign or been impeached.

    This is simply the Barack Obama Party and its smear tactics at work — moreso since Herman Cain represents what the Obama Party sees as a slave revolt. He is a black candidate who is not beholden to the white liberal establishment that fancies themselves plantation owners of old. Without the monolithic black vote, the Obama Party is destined for permanent minority status and they know it — hence their vitriol against Cain.

  8. tom asks:

    “This” is all innuendo. Sexual harassment is rarely witnessed. Like charges of homophobia or racism, it is a sure-fire shot of mud that spoils the recipient and sticks like skunk stink.

    Don’t you find it passing strange that all the charges come from Cain’s time at the the National Restaurant Association? Not from his time with the Navy, the Federal Reserve Bank, not Godfather’s, not Burger King, not his radio days, only with the NRA which is a major target of SEIU.

    As Ann Coulter points out

    So it’s curious that all the sexual harassment allegations against Cain emanate from Chicago: home of the Daley machine and Obama consigliere David Axelrod.

    Suspicions had already fallen on Sheila O’Grady, who is close with David Axelrod and went straight from being former Chicago mayor Richard M. Daley’s chief of staff to president of the Illinois Restaurant Association (IRA), as being the person who dug up Herman Cain’s personnel records from the National Restaurant Association (NRA).

    Within 24 hours of Bialek’s press conference, friends and acquaintances of hers stepped forward to say that she’s a “gold-digger,” that she was constantly in financial trouble — having filed for personal bankruptcy twice — and, of course, that she had lived in Axelrod’s apartment building at 505 North Lake Shore Drive, where, she admits, she knew the man The New York Times calls Obama’s “hired muscle.”

    The reason all this is relevant is that both Axelrod and Daley have a history of smearing political opponents by digging up claims of sexual misconduct against them.

    This time, Obama’s little helpers have not only thrown a bomb into the Republican primary, but are hoping to destroy the man who deprives the Democrats of their only argument in 2012: If you oppose Obama, you must be a racist.

    Get it? Ask Chris Matthews about “hardball.”

  9. I’m beginning to feel this story has reached an end point.

    I was at that point a week ago. All things considered, it would take some actual hard evidence to convince me Herman Cain did anything wrong. Now I’m just waiting for this “story” to fizzle out as the media runs out of “evidence” with which to sustain the hype.

    At this point (if I have my facts straight), four women have accused Cain of sexual harrassment, only two of which have identified themselves. And both of them have questionable motives. And there is no other evidence that is known about that implicates Cain.

    From my perspective, everything (at this point) points to Cain not being guilty of anything serious (like sexual harrassment), if anything at all. No respectable media outlet would report on such frivilous matters for such a long time.

  10. Some corrections to my previous comment: I should have said “questionable backgrounds” and “frivolous.”

  11. Business tends to be pretty brutal in dealing with this stuff, even in the 90s. And as that fact got know, it was more and more used as a weapon. For example, lay-offs would generate compliants, often that “so and so was not fired because the boss is banging her” or “I am being let go ’cause I don’t put out.”

    Normally someone accused had a pattern across jobs. One case I know of was where someone was accused of sexual harassment during a training. Six months later the accuser was laid off and her boss was accused…Sound familiar…

    So I either want to see accusations from other parts of Cain’s life or hear he was having home troubles. Otherwise, this kind of accusations just sound to me like life in the big city.

    It is odd they are all from Chicago and so far all Demoncrats….

  12. As the Story goes, Cain was not living at home because of his duties and role he took on at the NRA in DC. He had a standing room at one of the local hotels, and he travelled alot, and had contact with his ‘direct reports’ on a limited basis. While at the NRA, Cain was given alot of autonomy and from what it sounds like, a pretty free spending account.

    Sounds like a fun time, for someone who worked as hard as he did on his way to the NRA.

  13. How are you making this a Democratic or Republican issue ?

    Because the accusations would be a resume enhancement if he were a liberal. The democreeps are the party where you can let a woman drown and go on to serve publicly for almost 50 more years even after making a waitress sandwich and hitting on Carrie Fisher (yeesh!). What sticks out in my mind about Carville’s comment is that liberals can smear people who live in trailer parks and nobody cares. Likewise, you can smear gays, blacks, Hispanics, Jews, Christians, Catholics, etc. and nobody gives a f*k.

    Remember the whole kerfuffle about Trent Lott praising Strom Thurmond at his birthday party? Chris “Countrywide” Dodd, the other part of the waitress sandwich, did pretty much the same for Robert Byrd. Nobody cared and he kept his job.

    It is right vs. wrong, but you’re not supposed to judge other people. “It’s just sex”, after all, and it’s virtuous to lie about it as long as you’re a liberal.

  14. If all politicians were treated the same, it wouldn’t be a “Democrat or Republican issue.” Democrats routinely dodge responsibility for bad behavior by simply saying, “We don’t believe in all that family values crap, so we can’t be held to those standards.”

    Democrats used to claim that they would only be upset if there were issues of work place harassment or rape. But they stopped worrying about those things about the time Bill Clinton met Juanita Broaddrick.
