Allred, Trump Jump Shark; the Real October Surprise
Democratic, ambulance chasing, attorney Gloria Allred teased that she had some potentially damaging information about Mitt Romney. The media circus that developed around Allred's mission was very much aware of the game changing bombshell Allred dropped in the run-up to the California Gubernatorial election in 2010, in which "Super Glo" brought forward the alleged illegal alien, former maid of Republican nominee, Meg Whitman, who claimed that the former PayPal CEO had unceremoniously fired the maid prior to her campaign, leading the worker to have "tares on her face."
Republican, bad hair, loudmouth, serially married developer, Donald Trump, who previously had attempted to prove that President Obama was not born in the United States and thus ineligible to serve, also promised "an announcement" that could damage the President and harm his chances at re-election.
The showdown for both was set for early Wednesday morning; in a court hearing in Boston with Allred and a YouTube announcement released by Trump just moments ago.
Both have apparently resounded with a major thud.
As we currently understand it, Allred's "allegations" revolve around the 1990s divorce of Staples founder, Tom Stemberg. Romney's company, Bain Capital, was a major investor in Staples and Romney served on the company's board of directors for some time. According to reports, Romney testified in the case as to the value of Staples stock, apparently an issue of contention between Stemberg and his wife. Allred would like the testimony of the divorce case unsealed and a gag order imposed, lifted. During a hearing in Boston Wednesday morning, attorneys for Romney asked for time to review Allred's submission but noted that Romney has no problem with releasing the testimony. The Governor's attorneys also asked that the case only be held over for one day as they wish to submit their response fairly quickly.
Over in Manhattan, Trump's "bombshell" wasn't even a revelation. The real estate tycoon and reality TV star, in his YouTube video, offered the President a deal - if Obama unseals his sealed college records, Trump will donate $5 million to the charity of the Democrat's choice.
While all of this Matt Drudge - TMZ inspired trash swirls around, the REAL October Surprise, the "what did the President know and when did he know it moment" was revealed in a series of emails surrounding the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya. According to CNN, two hours after first being notified of an attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, a government e-mail to the White House, the State Department and the FBI said an Islamist group had claimed credit. This obviously does not square with the story given by the Obama Administration as to the nature and cause of the violent attack on US Ambassador Chris Stevens and others.
Stay tuned and don't listen to old media whores with bad hair.
