Is Gloria Allred Planning an October Surprise?

High-profile attorney Gloria Allred won’t confirm or deny Matt Drudge’s recent tweet that she is “about to make a move” in the waning days of the presidential campaign.

“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!!” Drudge tweeted Thursday.

Allred, a President Barack Obama supporter who served as a delegate at the Democratic National Convention last month, refused to comment on the speculation to Radar Online.

“I have no comment at this time about Mr. Drudge’s tweet. I don’t discuss meetings with potential clients,” Allred said.

There’s nothing in Drudge’s tweet to specifically indicate whether Obama or Mitt Romney would be the target of such a “move” — the Obama campaign being “at the ready” could mean ready to exploit or to defend — but Allred has generally gone after Republicans more than Democrats, including representing a woman who accused then-presidential candidate Herman Cain of sexual assault.

Allred also represented a woman who claimed in the final weeks of the 2010 California gubernatorial race that Republican candidate Meg Whitman knowingly employed her as an illegal immigrant housekeeper. Whitman lost the election to Jerry Brown.

In 2011, Allred represented the former porn star who exchanged sexual messages with ex-New York Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner.

It’s not uncommon for rumors to fly in the final days and weeks of a campaign. There was a flurry of speculation over the summer that former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and CIA Director David Petraeus were each on the short list to be Romney vice presidential running mate.
