Gloria Allred Plotting "October Surprise" Against Mitt Romney?

Is Gloria Allred planning on dropping an "October Surprise" bombshell on Mitt Romney's campaign?

That's the rumor going around, based on reliable GOP sources already bracing for a counterattack.

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!!"

The Red Side of Life, another GOP watchdog group warned its supporters of the need for action:

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

Allred, a supporter of President Barack Obama refused to confirm, or deny, Drudge's prediction.

A victim's rights activist who never met a camera she didn't like, Allred's reputation precedes her.

She's been a thorn in the side of many a powerful figure - and often with flimsy evidence at best.

So what would she have in store for Romney, the surging Republican presidential candidate?

Breitbart speculates that it may have to do with Romney's position on abortion in his capacity as a church leader, and that Obama's "Romnesia" bit may be telling.

Romney allegedly - allegedly, details vary widely - was insensitive to several women in his Mormon congregation and counseled them not to get abortions.

This issue arose during his bid for the U.S. Senate in 1994, during which the term "Romnesia" was also used to describe his inability to recall specific details.

This is perhaps reason to believe Allred is preparing to use this against Romney in 2012, and may be doing so in coordination with the Obama campaign.

"October Surprise" is a term used to describe ... well, just that. A late-breaking, out-of-nowhere development at this time of year that shakes up a close race.

With polls showing the race a dead heat and probably trending toward Romney with 15 days to go, we can expect some craziness to emenate from both sides.

Whether there's any truth to this Allred rumor remains to be seen, however.


Can picture what a kid would be like if her and Trump ever got together and had one. I wish they both would just shut up and go away, This election is far too important to have a couple publicity seeking ego maniacs to interfere with it with a bunch of non sense so they can get some more attention


why was Don Imus' dsughter in photos with Allred last week?


i don't think ANYONE would believe any thing that comes out of this [women] mouth


This alone would make me vote for Romney, what a slimy bi**h

@ Bob

Thats exactly what I say about D. Trump. He is such a whiney little b*^ch


Gloria Allred is a fame-seeker. She is a wannabe actress and most of her allegations are against high profile people just so she can get in the news. She is the same kind of scum that is only in it for the money and fame. Can you say Lawyer dearest???


so is your big deal going to be like trumps big newsbut it was a big flop.would you not think the FBI OR CIA GOT DIRT ON MITT already if and thing bad it would had been leaked already.


This is the kind of a thing someone from the lowest slime of society would pull out.This country is in the middle of 1 of the worse economic slide we can imagine,If we don't do the right thing
We are electing a president.This isn't some high school election where we elected a High School president.
This is discussion.Are we in High School where some low life cum and write an article,"Oh I got something on you,I'm going to tell.We need to go High and think about of value.Just leave the bull***** out of this this time.Lets just elect a our president.People are really getting fed up with this kind politic as usual


You would think she wouldn't be able to look at her face every morning. I know I would cringe if I did the things she does. She is what is wrong with this country. How can she not see this. Makes me shudder.


How pathetic that it has become customary for politicians (mostly on the left - be honest) to pull out a sleezy story, often untrue, so they don't have to try and win elections on merit. If we get an "October surprise" from the Obama campaign, that should tell us everything we need to know. Integrity is the first job qualification, so I hope Mr. Obama is not involved in anything like this.

@ John

In 2008 there was a November surprise from the right about Obama's half-cousin or something being an illegal immigrant.


If this supposed "October surprise" is nothing more than old recycled news about Romney counseling a woman regarding abortion, why would Allred be asking the family court in Massachussetts to unseal testimony? Why would there have been court involvement in his counseling someone on something? Think they might be a bit wrong on that one....
