Karl Rove, on Fox News today, talking about lawyer Gloria Allred's involvement with Sharon Bialek's allegation of sexual misconduct from Herman Cain.
"Credibility matters here, and Gloria Allred -- while she is a Democrat and a liberal Democrat and openly so -- nonetheless, has been involved in a number of high-profile cases like Tiger Woods and others, where the charges have been borne out.
So this gives Ms. Bialek's charges and accusations a little bit of credibility, and that's what we're talking about here -- credibility."
Rove didn't mention anything in the segment about Bialek's murky past and increasingly questionable motives. Interviews like this might strain an already contentious relationship between the strategist and the grassroots.
