For all the depths plumbed by the parasitic Gloria Allred over the years, and it's been a horrific litany of shameless exploitation by any standards of decency, this display yesterday in suburban New York may have been the most odious. We all know the pathetic story of former NFL great Lawrence Taylor, who yesterday received a wrist-slap for his exploits with an under-aged girl and then proceeded to further embarrass himself on Fox News. Yet since this happened last year the girl's identity has been kept secret, and for good reason as she was exploited not only by Taylor but the man who kept her against her will.
So why on earth is this abominable Allred trotting out the poor girl to give a shaky, prepared statement? Well, aside from the obvious money and attention it brings? Who thinks it's a good idea to expose this girl to even more humiliation? And the kicker? While she on camera, Allred says she won't be identifying her.
Linda Stasi in the New York Post rips Allred to shreds.
Yet there is Allred, shamefully clinging to this girl like like she's a daughter. I guess she's already discarded Meg Whitman's former maid in exchange for a new victim to exploit, another opportunity to preen for the cameras.
The one who seemingly endangered the welfare of a minor is the victim's new attorney, Gloria Allred. When that media hound in a Chanel suit brought the underage accuser/victim out for a press conference in front of the courthouse, the DA should have slapped the cuffs on her.
She was the one who damaged that girl by exposing her to the media, even though her identity had been scrupulously guarded by the courts and the media ever since the incident last May.
Here's what's even sadder. Allred, who can sniff out a camera like a truffle dog, showed up with the kid not to stand up for her in court -- but to walk her, like a paid escort, to the media circus she'd helped to create.
Allred, who tragically seems to have been born without the gene for shame, introduced the victim to the press by saying: "Our client, who we are not going to identify by name . . ."
What? You mean it's OK that we can all see her face now? That poor kid who's been through hell is now as recognizable as a contestant on "American Idol" -- but for all the very wrong reasons.
That press conference should get Allred arrested for trafficking in the misery of a minor.
What a horrible, horrible human being. If you need a palate cleanser, stick around as Taylor's lawyer comments on Allred's display. There are no winners in this episode, but at least Arthur Aidala provides a few laughs.
