Republicans are bracing themselves for GloriaÂ Allred to make a potentially damaging revelation about Mitt Romney, just weeksÂ before the election.
The pro-President Obama lawyer is rumoured toÂ be preparing for her so-called ‘October surprise’ in which she will strike theÂ Republican presidential hopeful’s chances by unearthing some sort of secret orÂ scandal.
Ms Allred has refused to comment on theÂ rumours, which first surfaced in a tweet by the Drudge Report’s Matt Drudge onÂ Thursday.
‘Here she comes. Hearing Gloria Allred outÂ there again, about to make a move. After all, it’s her time of the campaign.Â Team O at the ready!!’ Mr Drudge wrote on Twitter.
According to RadarOnline.com,Â Ms Allred launched a last minute strike on GOP Meg Whitman’s campaign forÂ governor of California by representing a disgruntled formerÂ housekeeper.
In the pivotal moments of the campaign, theÂ lawyer wheeled out Nicky Diaz who allegedÂ that she was fired by the Whitman family because she was an illegalÂ immigrant.
Whitman went on to lose the election toÂ Democrat Jerry Brown.
Ms Allred refused to confirm or deny theÂ rumours regarding Governor Romney.
‘I have no comment at this time about MrÂ Drudge’s Tweet. I don’t discuss meetings with potential clients,’Â she toldÂ RadarOnline.com.
But Republicans commentators are runningÂ scared, rallying the troops for a pre-emptive attack.
New York Conservative blog, The Red Side ofÂ Life, demanded Romney supporters ‘stop her now,’ adding ‘we’re doing too well toÂ risk ‘an Allred.’
‘Gloria Allred Prepares Anti-Mitt Strike YouÂ Can STOP Her Now! (action!) Don’t underestimate Gloria Allred’s ability toÂ inflict damage,’ the website reads.
‘The media will ‘eat up’ anything she feedsÂ them and turn it into an endless scandal. Recall she took down Cain and RINOÂ Whitman with NO EVIDENCE. We’re doing too well to risk ‘an Allred.’ She can beÂ stopped, but it will take action on our behalf.’
Most polls show President Obama and MittÂ Romney are head to head in the final weeks before the November 6 presidentialÂ election.
