The revelations from Sharon Bialek that Republican frontrunner Herman Cain allegedly grabbed her genitals, pushed her head toward his crotch and said, "You want a job, don't you?" back in 1997 have provoked the NY Post's Andrea Peyser to paint the blond mother as a gold digger AND harsh on her make-up: "Sharon Bialek is 50, out of work and, according to one who knows her, she’s a smooth operator living way above her means. From the look of her heavily painted face, she’s also soon to be in acute need of a new tub of eyeliner."

In fact, Peyser cites an unnamed acquaintance of Bialek to round out her story, "According to someone who knows Bialek: 'She has a very infectious personality. It’s easy to see how she won [Cain] over. But the reality of her situation is -- she’s a complete gold digger. It’s all about the money.' The friend said she comes from a lower-middle-income family, but lives in a posh apartment running from bill collectors. 'Most of her jobs ended in termination. It’s always the employer’s fault, not hers.... This is a lady who lives off the system. She is hellbent on finding a way of never having to work and living the lifestyle she wants to live, a very affluent lifestyle. In my next life, I want to come back as her.'" Peyser also tries to question Bialek's allegations, "Now, I love a good romantic farce as much as the next bored housewife. But the question remains: Why sit on this seeming sexual assault for 14 years?"

Cain himself has been trying to cast Bialek in an unflattering light, mentioning her brushes with bankruptcy, and has been blaming his sexual harassment allegation troubles on race. Which the Rev. Al Sharpton finds laughable. Sharpton told the Daily News, “I think it’s the height of hypocrisy for Herman Cain to say three weeks ago that race was no longer a major factor in this country. Now that he's a target, he gets on Fox and says ‘Yes, race has something to do with it.’” Sharpton added, "So let me get this right: there is no racism for those that are disproportionately unemployed or disproportionately incarcerated, but it’s race if four women come forward and say you allegedly harassed them?”
