Republicans bracing for 'October surprise' as Gloria Allred 'prepares for Romney revelation'
Daily Mail Online ^ | 10-20-12 | Daily Mail Reporter

Posted on 10/20/2012 8:54:09 AM PDT by jmstein7

Republicans are bracing themselves for Gloria Allred to make a potentially damaging revelation about Mitt Romney, just weeks before the election.

The pro-President Obama lawyer is rumoured to be preparing for her so-called 'October surprise' in which she will strike the Republican presidential hopeful's chances by unearthing some sort of secret or scandal.

Ms Allred has refused to comment on the rumours, which first surfaced in a tweet by the Drudge Report's Matt Drudge on 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!!' Mr Drudge wrote on Twitter.

According to RadarOnline.com, Ms Allred launched a last minute strike on GOP Meg Whitman's campaign for governor of California by representing a disgruntled former housekeeper.

Gloria Allred Prepares Anti-Mitt Strike. You Can STOP Her Now! (action!)
UPDATE: Contact JUDICIAL WATCH as well: 1-888-593-8442 and email here.
UPDATE: Contact the Republican National Lawyers Association
                 National: (703) 719-6335
                 California Division: (916) 442-7757 or (415) 765-6685

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.

Now, according to Drudge, she is prepared to launch an assault on Mitt (early warning here).

We're doing too well to risk "an Allred." She can be stopped, but it will take action on our behalf.

Please make these two calls. We will only get their attention if we bombard them. If you get VM, leave a message. 

Here are the critical points to get across:
This is no trifling matter. Let's roll!

Note to Allred; There is probably nothing that Romney could have done that would make me stay home on election day, or vote for commieobama.

Whatever she has - true, or not - it couldn’t be as bad as the prospect of four more years of obama.

This thread, even this exact article, has been posted on here like 5 times already, which you clearly know considering 9 out of your last 10 posts have been on Gloria Allred threads.

Let it die, stop reposting it every time it disappears in an attempt to give it legitimacy.

When Allred pulled this in California she dumped the accusations at the end of September a good six weeks before the election. ALSO the strong unions in California paid for an incredible number of ads demonizing Whitman after this release.

I think this is just publicity seeking on some bloggers part OR Gloria trying to stay relevant.

I'm pretty certain the Allred mud is related to the link below:

5 Disturbing Stories About Mitt Romney That Expose His Private Worldview

http://www.alternet.org/election-2012/5-disturbing-stories-about-mitt-romney-expose-his-private-worldview

“1. Mormon women have reported “horror stories” about Romney from when he served as a Mormon bishop.”

“According to investigative reporter Geoffrey Dunn , several Mormon women have reported disturbing stories about how Romney treated them while he was an LDS bishop and “stake president.”

Dunn is the lunatic that staked out Sarah Palin, so this is the level that we're dealing with here.

I would think Allred would be ready for a GOP administration. For the next four years any action brought against a republican will make national news. That would have to be good for business.

If she alleges something against a Dem with them in power she might end up dead with her obituary written in 5 point font.

There’s a lot of talk among the DU slime about what it could be.
They’re speculating about Mitt’s accident in France where a person was killed in a car accident involving Mitt, about remarks the wife and son made about Mitt’s mental state and about one of the sons owning some voting machines in Ohio

Thanks for the link. After reading the charges, I’m pretty much convinced that the “bombshell” will be about Romney mistreating women. Allred knows that’s a charge that merely has to be made in order to be given plausibility. She plied it well with Cain.

It’s where we are in American today. Women have always used sex as a tool — now they use it as a weapon. The charges alone will cost Romney some momentum and possibly even polling points.

Gloria Allred, Queen of Baseless Allegations - but by the time that is shown to be the case, she has done the damage she intended.

With her background I’m ignoring whatever she says - even if it is true.

Yea... I'm suprised that story hasn't already run on 60 Minutes, Dateline, and all the nightly sews shows... Maybe, there are problems with the source... Allred will take all the risk for the networks by "announcing" the story again, and probably bringing the woman forward for an "interview"...

They HAVE to do something... they're losing badly, and they know it.

If she is going to do this maybe that is why she’s waiting until the last minute. Give the Republicans less time to investigate the claim and take whatever fall out from it that they can for the short term.

Does anyone not know how sleazy Allred is?

Isn’t it obvious that anything at this point (no matter how minor) will be seen as the sleazy “dirty trick” that it is?

The difference with Hermain Cain is that he was nearly a complete unknown and rival Republicans didn’t mind if his candidacy was submarined. Cain had other issues too which all became magnified when nobody knows who the guy is, and he’d never held elective office before either. This is a completely different scenario.

Nobody should worry about this. Just treat Allred like she deserves.

What can she have on Mitt that tops Rezko, 0bamacare, GM, shovel ready, muslim spring, and Libya?

Polygamy? Family bankruptcies and accusation of fraud? Video involving farm animals?

She’s a loser championing a losing cause, in a red suit.

“I can’t imagine its anything of any real importance. I can’t stand Romney and even I know he’s squeaky clean as far as secrets are concerned.”


It doesn’t matter if he’s squeaky clean. What matters is that we have enough stupid people in this country who will believe anything, especially if they see it on the “news”.

Hopefully enought people have already made up their minds so whatever this witch does will have very little impact, but you never know. Too many people in this country believe their lives are part of some reality show. To them the facts don’t matter. They want to know the dirt. If it ends up being something that isn’t true, that’s not a big deal to them. Notice how after Cain stepped aside all of those allegations went away. There was never anything to them. Still, the average idiot out there believes everything they were told about him, because it was ON THE NEWS!

I know it’s off-topic, but this really exposes the double-standard that exists today and is fueled by the MSM. There was a guy not too long ago who was also more or less a complete unknown, barely had any experience on a national level, and everyone was supposed to ignore whatever issues he had because they only existed in the minds of racists. That person’s issues were not magnified by the same people who were over the top in their attacks on Cain; they were completely ignored. That person was pushed all the way to the presidency by the same people who demanded that Cain get lost just a few years later because HE didn’t deserve to be a candidate.

Could I just tell you that this is why I'm suspicious of this whole thing?

With all due respect, what moron thinks Mitt Romney and his allies need to get a phone call from me to know about this and take it seriously? Gee, Silverback called, this must be serious. Better call the lawyers. I'm sure glad he called, I never would have thought a bunch of vicious liberals who trade in lies and demonization would attack me in the last two weeks of the campaign. Duhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...."

Second, what moron thinks the way to handle this is to make sure that the top headline on Monday is "Romney campaign goes to court to hide shocking revelation?"

Third, I'm sure it's no coincidence at all that the conservative blog that is now being quoted in multiple newspapers on this issue was laboring in obscurity until less than 48 hours ago.

Good grief, let's get a grip here.

Too little, too late.

The MSM has already started hedging their bets. They’ve got a bad pony, and they know it.

Candy Crowley was their high water mark. They have started to realize they are not dealing with W but with a very powerful and well-connected guy.

They’re going to need access in a Romney administration, and they know it. Gloria will be a liability to them - I don’t think they will play this time.
