Is Drudge On To Something? Gloria Allred Refuses To Comment On 'October Surprise'
RadarOnline ^ | 10-19-12 | Jen Heger

Posted on 10/19/2012 7:12:29 AM PDT by jmstein7

Is famed women's right attorney Gloria Allred about to pull an "October surprise" on Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney?

That's the thinking, after Drudge Report founder and respected politico, Matt Drudge, tweeted Thursday: "Here she comes. Hearing Gloria Allred out there again, about to make a move. After all, it's her time of the campaign. Team O at the ready!!"

PHOTOS: Political Hotties

Allred, an outspoken supporter of President Barack Obama refused to confirm, or deny, Drudge's prediction, telling RadarOnline.com: "I have no comment at this time about Mr. Drudge's Tweet. I don't discuss meetings with potential clients."

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, during GOP Meg Whitman's run to become governor of California, Allred represented Nicky Diaz, a former housekeeper for the Whitman family. The housekeeper alleged that she was terminated from her employment because she was an illegal immigrant, and that could have derailed Whitman's quest to become California's first female governor. Whitman ultimately lost the election to Democrat Jerry Brown.

Allred was a delegate for President Obama at the DNC in North Carolina last summer.

Most polls show the presidential race between President Obama and Governor Romney to be in a statistical dead heat, with both candidates heavily courting the female vote.

Don't take any risks! Call the Republican National Lawyers Association NOW at (703) 719-6335 to URGE them to look into this and take preemptive action if possible.

There is too much at stake in this election - please take the action above.

Thge best defense is an offense. One of the SuperPacs could fund and release an expose of Gloria AllRED’s background and activities.

We are entering the most dangerous 2 weeks. The witch Gloria knows whatever tripe she concocts doesn’t have to be truthful. All she has to do is put slime out there.

No doubt she will pull some feminazi out of thin air that says Romney was a mean boss and harrassed her.

All I can say is that if she pulls something, it is going to be up to our side to tell Gloria, go away. we don’t care because the alternative is your employers, Obama and the DNC.

Interesting, you have now posted and told people and I quote, to “barrage” the RNC with phone calls several times already.

There is no possible preemptive legal action to stop an attorney meeting with clients, much less clients you do not know the identity of, there is no legal authority that can stop Gloria Alred from making a public statement.

People have told you they called the RNC already. This was a Drudge tweet, they know about it. Do YOU know what Drudge is talking about? Do you know why there is a legal basis to stop this IN ADVANCE?

Haven’t you called the RNC already?

Don’t try this newbie stuff on me.

It seems to me that if Allred had anything at all the Obama campaign would already know about it and they would not be frantically trying to turn a comment about binders full of resumes into an election losing gaffe.
These people are frantic. I wouldn’t be surprized to find out Drudge’s source is part of Obama’s staff. Anything to scare us.

I have no doubt Axelrod has sent one or more creeps over to Allred to prepare an October surprise. It is their MO and they are desperate right now.

Guesses would be an illegal immigrant landscaper, woman mistreated on the job, sex scandal against Ryan, someone mistreated at Bain.

I’m simply reacting to these constant appeals to barrage the RNC with phone calls.

Until something is done by Allred, “preemptive” efforts to silence her or a client would backfire, big time. Besides, you are not going to put a lid on something 2 weeks before a presidential election. There is no lid that tight.

Sounds like something is coming, and hopefully it just turns people off to the dems.

I believe that somehow, because of all the unanswered questions...because of the unbelievably chaotic and rushed manner in which the Obama administration tried to cover it up...and because of just common sense question, questions like:

1. Why were new security requests for Benghazi denied after two recent attacks, one by an IED in June that left a 40ft whole in the wall?

2. Why were the security teams they had in BEnghazi removed in August, juts a couple of weeks before the event?

3. Why was a U.S. Ambassador who had indicated he rfeared for his life and was seeking more security, sent to Benghazi, the hotbed for anti-Americanism, on the 11th Anniversyary of 911 with o US security team?

4. Why did 12 command centerss watch an attack on Benghazi unflod for SIX HOURS and no relief attempt was mounted either from Tripoli with helos, or from potential US NAvy vessels in the Med? A helo traveling at 150 MPH can go a good distance in 6 hours, so can an F-18 traveling at Mach 1.

5. Finally, what was the relationship of Stevens to the Gitmo Releasess who was heading up anti-Quadafi efforts out of BEnghazi during the revolution? Was Stevens going there to meet him? Was it a setup?

I honestly believe that the terrorists knew that the security had been taken away. I believe they actually hoped to kidnap the Ambassador in an easy smash and grab operation and then try and trade him for the blind shiek, and I believe there very well could have been people in our own government who knew about this.

I believe that the “October Surprise” may have been what was “supposed” to happen in Benghazi.

But because a couple of US Navy SEALS happened to be there on another unrelated matter, and because a couple of other personnel (possibly CIA people) worked with them and put up a heck of a fight...holding them off for 6 hours...that the plan went bad. The attackers got mad when many of their own were killed and wonded and they ended up killing Stevens and the SEALS and the other fellow that got seperated from the main group (who escaped) when they caught them.

Thus what was supposed to be a great “moment” for Obama in an arranged “tough” negotiation to “save” Ambassador Stevens (who himself I believe had no clue about this), turned into a gruesome murder instead.

If it's such an important issue, why would she wait until a few days before the election to disclose it?

If it's a criminal act and she knew about it and sat on it, that makes her at best an accessory and at worst a blackmailer.

This will blow up in their faces. The voters will see right through it, and a lot of rabid Obama voters will abandon him. Even they will see how stupid he thinks they are.

I’m not so sure. Mitt is being attacked for his “binders of women” comment, even by obama. Why? That was a nothing mistake by Romney. Is it to setup the focus on women, his “disregard” of women, prior to whatever Allred may allege? Their focus on the “binders” faux-pas sounds like a setup....(or they are just completely out of things to attack Romney on).

The only possible way to silence someone with a scandal, is if they previously signed an agreement to remain silent.

The problem with that is, even IF Romney knows who the person is in advance, Romney will just call attention to the whole thing and Gloria can run around about how Romney is so scared he tried to keep her quiet.

Also, Gloria got around this confidentiality business against Cain, by keeping the identity of the person secret, and calling on Cain to release them from their confidentiality agreement. This was highly effective and you are not going to keep the national media off a Romney scandal by waiving legal action.

I am sure they are considering using Allred on this, it’s what they do and more specifically it’s what Axelrod does. This close to the election, the person can be the biggest bimbo, scum, liar in the world and Romney won’t have time to prove that and shut teh scandal down.

If Rasmussen has the election right, it could make a big difference. If Gallup has it right, not so much.

I do believe the RNC knows about this already. Freepers called them yesterday and Matt Drudge’s tweets must go to millions of people?

Remember when the story broke about W's old DWI..just before the election..it was very discouraging...I remember all he threads here on FR.

The problem is, Allred dumps it..even if it's not remotely credible..the MSM joyfully picks it up..the retractions come AFTER election day.

However, I suspect that Romney is ready for it..
