Gloria Allred Plotting "October Surprise" Against Mitt Romney?

by at . Comments

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.

If this is all she has, nothing to worry. And there's something wrong with counseling someone to not have an abortion? I support her ilk would encourage it though. Whatever, Gloria...get a life!

How sad these celebrity people put theatrics over substance. It brought the dems in and it will escort them out. Anyone forming an opinion about Romney based on what Alred or Sharpton says- HELLO???? LOLOL . The careful management of this closed door presidency and then all of a sudden the release of information is like the roll out of the Hollywood film- The Titanic LOL

The story is already out there. She's planning to trot out some dumb woman who 30 years ago, as a member of the mormon church was told to have an abortion and Mitt Romney as a pastor in the Church tried to talk her out of it. Newsflash! Romney is pro-life! Wow! Shocking! This witch is a media whore from the word go. She represents the scum of the earth or takes idiotic people and uses them for her own purposes. What a pig! Romney will win and she will be crying!

Abortion has become less of an issue nowadays. Everyone who wants one can pretty much get one. Church leaders and others have a right to their opinions. What may have been radical in 1994 is far less relevant today. I am sure the screaming will start when and if there is a valid attempt to criminalize abortion. This currently a non issue, go away Gloria Allred in your day abortion would never have been an issue for you. You are an ugly person both inside and outside.

Predict that she will divulge that Obama has finally come out of the closet in order to gain support with the Democrat base. She will expose his associations with the "Down-Low Club" and his membership in "Man's Country".

Most women have loftier thoughts, desires and goals than the constant bombardment of "abortion and birth control". This is a personal decision and everything is available to them. No one can nor will take those choices away. To portray that this issue drives all women is absurd and offensive. Ms. Fluke got 10 people at her NV campaign stop - that should tell you what I am saying it true. Gloria just needs some money and attention.
