A fifth woman has accused Herman Cain, that charming roué, of sexual harassment. Donna Donella, 40, of Arlington, Virginia, said Cain tried to get her to set him up with an Egyptian businesswoman and when she refused, he asked her out to dinner. She refused that, too. (I mean, who wants to be a guy’s second choice, amiright?) Keep reading »
Last week, we were kvelling about Shyane DeJesus, a 22-year-old college student in New York City who fought back when she was groped by a man while waiting for a subway. And she didn’t let the guy who lifted up her dress and slid his hand under her skirt get away when a train arrived: she followed him on the train, punched and kicked him, and shoved her Blackberry in his face to snap pictures. “I’m glad I fought back. I’m going to defend myself,” she told the New York Post. “I want him on the list for sex offenders.”
Well, it seems like Shyane DeJesus might just get her wish. The alleged subway groper, Froylan Andrade, 39, was arrested on Sunday after he was turned in by his brother. Keep reading »
This afternoon, Sharon Bialek, the fourth woman accusing GOP presidential nomination wannabe Herman Cain of sexual harassment, held a press conference in New York to describe how she met with him about getting a job and he reached his hand under her skirt. Bialek said in July 1997, she met with Cain, then the president of the National Restaurant Association, after getting her old job back. She claims Cain allegedly reached under her skirt for her genitals and pushed her head towards his crotch. When she asked what he was doing, Cain reportedly said, “You want a job, right?” Keep reading »
We get some weird email here at The Frisky and the weirdest one I’ve received today is definitely the main item from yesterday’s Today’s Lady News column … animated. Yes, someone animated the news item about 22-year-old Shyane DeJesus, the woman who beat the crap out of a man who groped her on the New York City subway. Shyane DeJesus also shoved her phone in his face and snapped photos, so hopefully cops can catch this perv. Sexual assault is not a laughing matter, yet something about the awkward blob-people in the animation treatment is … funny. Hey, whatever gets more people educated. [BigAppleDaily.TV] Keep reading »
- Shyane DeJesus, 22, a senior at City College in New York City, was waiting for the subway when she felt a man grope her on the thigh and then shove his hand under her skirt. So Shyane started beating him about the head; when the subway arrived, the man jumped on it, and she followed him inside, where she kept punching him. He tried to get off at the next stop, so grabbed her Blackberry to snap pictures of his face to give to the cops. The guy is still on the loose, but maybe he’ll think twice about sexually assaulting another woman. ”I’m glad I fought back. I’m going to defend myself,” she told the New York Post. “I want him on the list for sex offenders.” Girl, I am so proud of you! [NY Post] Keep reading »
Over the weekend, the politics blog Politico dropped the bomb that Herman Cain, a Republican frontrunner for the presidential nomination, was accused of sexual harassment twice by women who later took pay-outs not to discuss the incidents. Politico claimed that when Cain headed the National Restaurant Association during the 1990s, two women complained to superiors about his behavior — innuendo, personal questions of a sexually suggestive nature, physical gestures that made the women uncomfortable — and eventually left their jobs with five-figure settlements.
On Tuesday, the lawyer for one of the accusers told The New York Times that she wants to speak out about the incident — but is bound by her non-disclosure agreement. Keep reading »
The political news website Politico has dropped the bombshell news that Herman Cain, a Republican frontrunner for the presidential nomination and kooky numerologist, was accused of sexual harassment twice by women who later took pay-outs not to talk about the incidents.
Based on the reports of a half-dozen sources, Politico claims that when Cain headed the National Restaurant Association during the 1990s, two women complained to colleagues and senior officals about his behavior and ultimately left their jobs with financial pay-outs. Cain has refused to talk about the accusations for the past 10 days. But when confronted by a reporter this weekend, he said he couldn’t comment “until I see some facts or some concrete evidence.” When he was repeatedly pressed, Cain turned it around on the reporter, asking, “Have you ever been accused of sexual harassment?”
Someone’s got a fetish and hasn’t found an appropriate outlet for it yet! Over the course of a 53-day period in 2010, a gentleman named Rip Alan Swartz made 6,575 calls — maxing out at 432 on one particular September day — trying to get women to chat about pantyhose. His failproof tactic? Swartz would dial businesses and begin to politely discuss the weather before redirecting the conversation to questions and comments about pantyhose. You know, natural conversational flow.
Note to the cast and crew of the new “Charlie’s Angels“: it probably isn’t a good idea to slap the butt of the show’s leading actress. Star magazine is reporting that Minka Kelly was sexually harassed on the set of the show in late August and was, understandably, very upset about the incident. Here’s what allegedly went down: a staffer walked up behind her, slapped her tush, and then waved a $100 bill at her. Apparently, he thought it was funny? A source on the set squealed, “It seems like it was meant to be a joke, but clearly it was inappropriate. Minka was shocked and absolutely irate. She was still fuming about it hours later.” Keep reading »
