is really starting to bug me:
Gloria Allred’s ‘October Surprise’: Mitt Romney Lied Under Oath to Help Staples Founder Keep Money From Wife in Divorce?
It was never "Gloria Allred's" surprise.
That notion began with Matt Drudge, who -- it is now clear -- hoped to sic the attack dogs on the wrong party. And now Fox News is leading the misinformation crusade.
The fight to unseal those court records is being waged by the Boston Globe
. The newspaper started this, not the attorney. Allred is simply representing one of the parties in that divorce fight. As far as I can see, Allred has done nothing more than convey her client's assent to having those records revealed. Any number of other attorneys could have done likewise.
Anyone who starts blathering on about why he or she doesn't like Gloria Allred is trying to mislead you. Of course, right-wing propagandists would rather direct a rage campaign against a feminist lawyer than against a newspaper.
