Gloria Allred is a fixture in American politics. She tries her victims in the court of public opinion in last minute smear campaigns. Posing as a real attorney she has not intention of going to court. Her job is done when her target has been destroyed.
After showing off some poor woman who possessed a year book with a clearly altered copy of US Senate candidate Roy Moore’s signature – she has disappeared from the lime light.
But the forgery and smear campaign persist in the main stream media. The sweaty desperation of the progressives and Swamp Creatures in DC who fear another appointment to the US Supreme Court by President Trump has driven Allred to step out on the sharp edge of forgery to switch a Senate seat to Democrat.
That is what is at stake.
