Republicans Try To Stop Gloria Allred As Mitt Romney 'October Surprise' Drama Builds
Radar Online ^ | Posted on Oct 19, 2012 @ 05:00PM | By Jen Heger - Radar Assistant Managing Editor

The Republican party is bracing itself - and preparing to fight back - against Gloria Allred's rumored "October Surprise" on Republican presidential hopeful, Mitt Romney, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

"We're doing too well to risk 'an Allred,' she can be stopped, but it will take action on our behalf," a GOP watchdog group blogged, asking supporters to contact Romney's campaign headquarters, the Republican National Committee and Judicial Watch.

As previously reported, 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!!"

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."

The Red Side of Life, Conservative Musings from New York says on their website, "Gloria Allred Prepares Anti-Mitt Strike. You Can STOP Her Now! (action!) Don't underestimate Gloria Allred's ability to inflict damage. The media will 'eat up' anything she feeds them and turn it into an endless scandal. Recall she took down Cain and RINO Whitman with NO EVIDENCE. We're doing too well to risk 'an Allred.' She can be stopped, but it will take action on our behalf."

The blog asks supporters to "please make these two calls. We will only get their attention if we bombard them. If you get VM, leave a message," to the Republican National Committee and Mitt Romney's national presidential campaign headquarters.

"The critical points to get across: Warn them about the pending attack (they really may not know) - Explain the severity of damage Allred can inflict - Demand that they get their teams of lawyers to launch a pre-emptive strike against Allred, coming down on her first like a ton of bricks -This is no trifling matter. Let's roll!"

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.

Just to show what a joke this will be, the GOP should have Larry Sinclair at the ready with his lawyer and immediately file a sexual assault complaint against Obama. With two slimy accusers coming out at the same time, the MSM will have no choice but to call them both last second slime rather than being able to report only one side.

Sure its tacky, but so is Gloria.

What could Gloria Allred find..a former maid who turned out to be an illegal alien..I doubt it..from what I understand the Romneys never even had a nanny(Unless Im wrong) Allred has NOTHING..she loves being in the spotlight..seriously people need to stop giving this woman so much power..if she had anything she would have revealed it already..and the Romneys are squeaky clean and so is Paul Ryan..at best all dirt bag Allred can do is hire some woman to say that Romney checked out her ass

Trying to stop her makes it look like they’re afraid of something.

Tough call - lies can destroy someone, but they can also bury the person who tries to spread them.

I sure hope Mitt is squeaky clean. He certainly has me convinced.

It isn’t what Gloria has on Romney, its what she can assert she has - no proof required. Remember, its the seriousness of the allegation, not the truth of it. Romney must have denied some poor woman Obamaphone.

I think that the closer we get to the election without Barry’s ho releasing her horsesh*t is a good sign. She knows that whatever she has won’t stand up to any scrutiny so she will have to release it as close to the election as she can for it to do any damage. If the commie ho does pull some bullsh*t to help her boy, Barry, I hope Romney responds by taking her goatsmellin’ ass to court and makes her pay, BIGTIME. A little jail time would do her good.

Exactly. Just like newspapers retract false stories in one line statements on page B22 two weeks after the sensational story was on the front page.

Not much hope left in a state where firing an illegal immigrant loses votes for you.

Romney's Bain Capital career makes his past a fertile minefield for these kinds of complaints. They just have to find someone with some grievance at one of the hundreds of companies Bain owned and it can be trumped up until making Mitt a heartless robber baron who abused workers' rights.

Blah, blah, blah. Remember 2000? The guys who had the story about Dubya’s old DUI. Did they go “na na na, we’ve got something”, or did they just wait until the weekend before the vote and drop it into the news? I think you know the answer. The entire point of the October Surprise is that it’s supposed to be a surprise. If you see it or even suspect it coming, it’s not a surprise, is it?

It just occurred to me..

If she is in any way an affiliate of the 0bama campaign, couldn't the Republicans in Congress get involved in this if true? We know the DOJ wouldn't give a sh!t since they only serve JustUs.

No, actually, failing to respond to an attack makes it look like it's factual.

Prepare a rapid response ahead of the allegation so devastating it will discourage the opposition; challenge them to a cosmic game of chicken. Remember Mutually Assured Destruction?

From the comment section on the Daly caller:

“Someone already posted this below, but it’s worth repeating because this is what’s coming. It’s a perfect mix of Mormonism and the War on Women (and Mitt’s claim that he supports abortion if the mother’s life is in danger). Coincidentally, she also now lives in California (Allred’s stomping grounds).
Have you heard of Carrel Hilton Sheldon? If not, you should, and here’s why. She was a woman who supposedly needed an abortion to save her life. Mitt was a 36-year old bishop at the time and was adamantly opposed. She had the abortion but claims she was so traumatized by Mitt that she left the church.
Still don’t think this is “it”? It was just written about in the Daily Kos 2 hours ago.

This might be part of it. 30 years ago

Agree. True or not, it will dominate the news for the week(s) leading to the election and risk turning off early voters.

Gloria Aldred might have something like proof that an illegal immigrant used to work for the Romney Family. This is how she got Meg Whitman tossed from the Guv race. Don’t know. I’m just speculating.

My gut tells me no matter what it is Americans are gonna be pissed even more at the media and the scumbag Democrat party. I have personally helped register and educate a dozen new voters. It's Montana but my focus is to defeat the lying scum Senator John Tester and make sure we have a new Republican house member, Governor and Secretary of State. Next is the scumbag Max Baucus. His defeat for me will be like Obama, Reid & Nasty Nancy all at once.

I hope so.

It has to be some woman that worked for Romney some time ago. She'll say he wronged her somehow, she was passed up for raises, they wouldn't stock her favorite soft drink in the coke machines...something. Can't be too difficult to find some over emoted woman somewhere that can say bad things about him.

Let me guess...

One of his drivers three cars ahead in his motorcade turned left without a signal out behind some airport building, and a female aid that had wanted to be a driver is filing a grievance with Romney, because he was sleeping in the back seat between campaign events at the time, and she is claiming he’s avoiding important negative information about the other driver because she’s a woman.

Gloria Alread strikes me as a senile old doberman pincher that will soon need to be wheeled around in a hospital bed, as she continues to screw up the lives of people who have gotten off their asses and done something positive with their lives, so that people who haven’t can live off them.

Course I have been known to be wrong before. It’s just an opinion Gorrhea.

Weak. And even if it were true, Mitt has 'evolved' to where today he'd support it in the case of saving the life of the mother.

The GOP would counter this with the chilling audios of Obama as an IL State Sen., discussing what to do to the 'child, fetus, however you define it' that survives a botched abortion.

Don’t forget Gloria Allred. She doesn’t NEED to have anything on him. Never stopped her from bringing people down before. She has the potential to cause a lot of trouble, and many of us have been working far to hard to sit back and let her have her way with our candidate. We need to know that Team Romney is prepared for whatever might come their way from this troublemaker. Get the word out!
