By the way, what ever happened to that case? Apparently Allred dumped Stemberg after the election, and she has not pursued the lifting of the gag order on the Stemberg divorce case. That's because there is no need any longer since Romney lost the election. Despite the fact that Allred insisted the case had nothing to do with trying to bring down Romney, the truth speaks loudly in her actions. We are not hearing anything about the lifting of the gag order because the story is no longer relevant and Allred was lying through her teeth.
All of this fully supports my theory (which I wrote about on my other blog) that Allred was involved in the Petraeus case back in October, that she planned to bring forward one of the women who was involved (see below) prior to the election, and that Obama stopped her from exposing the scandal until after the election. My closing line on my November 14, 2012, blog post on the Petraeus-Broadwell-Allen-Kelley scandal was: "P.S. Don't be surprised when Gloria Allred pops up (again) in the midst of all this sleaze and sensationalism." And I was spot on. Call me prescient.
Allred has moved on to a more timely "victim." Move over Maureen Stemberg Sullivan: Gloria smells fresh (all red) blood. She now has her claws in another woman whose story is meaningless -- and pathetic. Remember this picture from my earlier post?
We now have a new face of a weepy victim to insert into the Allred mold.
That's right. Allred is now exploiting Natalie Khawam, the twin sister of Jill Kelley, who is the woman who brought down Four-star General Petraeus earlier this month. And we don't have to fake a picture since Allred already threw Khawam to the piranhas in the media this past week, with displays of her trademark hugs and loving gazes.
What is remarkable about the press conference that Khawam and Allred held this week is that it was absolutely, unequivocally the most pointless waste of time and energy in recent memory. This weepy woman, who has no dog in any public fight whatsoever and who should be staying as far off the radar as possible in light of her own personal problems, appears as a press conference with the creepy woman lawyer to tell the country that she (Khawam) loves her sister (Kelley), that she (Khawam) sautees and her sister (Kelley) bakes, that she (Khawam) likes math and her sister (Kelley) likes science, that they both like tennis (perhaps Khawam lobs and Kelley smashes?). Also, she says "po-tay-to" and her sister says "po-tah-to," she says "to-may-to" and her sister says "to-mah-to." I wish they had called the whole thing off.

Or, if you want to make better use of your time, you can watch this clip from the classic movie What About Bob? which is how I suspect many of Gloria Allred's
At the end of the press conference, Khawam closed with this remark: "I look forward to the day when I'm able to answer everyone's questions and explain what really happened in this matter."
What? So what is stopping her? Why isn't that day now? On second thought, who is even asking questions of her, other than, "What the heck are you thinking?" and "Who gives a flying fig about you?"
Khawam is only a small minnow in a big scandal-pond. Allred will soon move on to bigger fish in the scummy waters of the Petraeus debacle. Mark my word. I called it earlier this month, and I'll bet my law license I am right again.
