Lisa Bloom, a California lawyer and daughter of Gloria Allred, who also represents Trump accusers, arranged payments for women to publicly accuse Donald Trump of sexual misconduct before the election. Bloom’s efforts included offering to sell the story to TV outlets in return for a commission for herself, arranging a donor to pay off the accuser’s mortgage, and attempting to secure as much as $750,000 to another woman who ultimately declined. Earlier this year, Bloom was shamed into dropping Harvey Weinstein, a sexual predator and alleged rapist, as a client.
There are many inconsistencies in Beverly Nelson’s accusation against Judge Roy Moore. Attorney, Gloria Allred, is representing Nelson, and her handling of the case is making it clear that the purpose of the lawsuit is, not to prove the claim in court, but to generate publicity against Moore just prior to the election.
