UPDATE: Questions about Software used. We received a “tweet” from a gentleman in the Netherlands who wrote this:
The article asserts that the software used has been proven to be highly inaccurate and the founder/inventor a “charlatan.” You can read it and decide for yourselves. Since it looks like the company in question, Nemesysco, has NOT answered the mathematical challenges given it is important to be cautious. As I mention in the original article, Cain can not entirely close this door in the public’s eye unless he takes an FBI accredited test and passes, and she takes one and does not. It is not “nothing” to have 70 agencies using your software, either. And the software website has SOME scientific corroboration for their work.
On the other wing, the website and blog of the article, AntiPolygraph.org, also seems to have an agenda. Their website wants an ABOLISHMENT of all polygraph testing. Again, as I mention in my article, there are many KNOWN problems with polygraph testing. This is one reason why it is NOT allowed as evidence in a court trial. However, my law enforcement friends insist they are “generally” reliable. It’s why it has been around as long as it has. These system measure panic – not lying. If you are pathological – you can pass because lying doesn’t create stress in your pulse or breathing. So unless someone is trained in techniques to beat it, it is VERY reliable. For the record, one former law enforcement friend - who is NOT a Cain fan – believes Cain is telling the truth. He sees nothing to indicate that Cain wouldn’t be forthright in an actual lie detection test.
ORIGINAL POST: A voice analysis software technology used by 70 law enforcement agencies around the United States has definitively proven Herman Cain was TELLING THE TRUTH that Sharon Bialek was LYING.
The private investigator who ran the test said that, “there is no doubt, Cain is innocent.”
CBS TV in Atlanta ran this story tonight saying in part:
CBS Atlanta's Mike Paluska played Cain's speech for Ward into the software and watched as it analyzed Cain's every word.
If he is hiding something this thing would have spiked way down here," said Ward. "He is being truthful, totally truthful. He is a man with integrity and he talked directly about not knowing any incident he is accused of."
The software analyzes the stress level and other factors in your voice. During the speech, when Cain denied the claims, the lie detector read "low risk." According to Ward, that means Cain is telling the truth.
During the section of Bialek's news conference where she says, "He suddenly reached over put his hand on my leg under my skirt and reached for my genitals he also grabbed my head brought it towards his crotch."
During the analysis of that section the software said "high risk statement." Ward said that means she is not telling the truth about what happened.
"I don't think she is fabricating her meetings," said Ward. But, she is fabricating what transpired."

Although a Reuters Poll showed a weakening in enthusiasm directly following the Cain press conference address the allegations – there was no substantial change in predicted voting.
A new poll released by Rasmussen tonight showed:Cain 30%, Romney 24%, Gingrich 19%
I suspect these are still trailing numbers (see previous Cain article here for poll reading analysis) but this is actually quite better than I expected for Cain. With this news, it is ENTIRELY possible that Cain could remain the front runner and even add Perry supporters bailing after tonight’s debate performance.
There are enough questions of the other accusers that as long as more credible accusers do not appear, Cain may not only survive – but solidify strength around those who now feel the urge to defend him and fight off the smears of a good man.
Prior to the debate tonight, I would expect Cain to have fallen a small bit more with perhaps a slight rise by Gingrich. Gingrich has the ability to do something Cain doesn’t and that is to appeal to Romney voters looking for what they perceive to be policy substance.
Of course – the mainstream media not only might not accept these results, they also will not trumpet them. It will be up to Cain’s campaign to make people aware of this either by challenging Bialek to submit to a lie detection test, or for Cain to do another – more highly publicized one. It is completely unknown if this past week has been a big enough opening for Newt Gingrich to make up 10 points on Cain. The split of the still to fall Perry voters might likely fall a bit more heavily toward Gingrich, since with 3 previous debate failures they still were not attracted to the Cain Train as yet.
Either way – this is very good news for the Cain campaign, and very, very bad news for the mainstream media, Politico and the Democrats.
Ann Coulter lays out the case that David Axelrod, who created attacks on each of Barack Obama’s opponents to win State and US Senate seats, is behind these attacks. Read her article here.
