Rove: Allred adds credibility to accusation

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.
