If you want to insure instant lack of credibility for any issue just call in famed lawyer Gloria Allred. This blogger has long admired Ms. Allred’s work in advancing the cause of equal treatment for women in the workplace, but her recent actions have carved her more in the mold of a celebrity smut chaser than a serious lawyer. And it all started with the Tiger Woods Sex Scandal, and reached its heights when she came to The 2011 Night Of 100 Stars Oscar Party specifically to share her distaste for Charlie Sheen and Tiger Woods. Here’s the Zennie62 video interview with Gloria Allred:
Now, Bobby Davis, 39, and his stepbrother Mike Lang, 45, both accused former Syracuse University basketball coach Bernie Fine of sexually abusing them as children and held a news conference today, featuring their choice to represent them, Gloria Allred.
The news sent Twitter up in flames. Here’s a selection of tweets, some good, most bad:

Gloria Allred is nothing but a trouble-causing ambulance chaser…makes those two look even more like liars to me #Syracuse
If you parade out Gloria Allred as your attorney, expect that I’m going to think you’re just after money.
@theDAshow Damon Amendolara
Avoiding it. Here’s guessing Sandusky’s victims don’t need Allred. “@JAGtheDJ: are you watching Gloria Allred presser? She’s disgusting.”
good @VinniePolitan Gloria Allred suing Syracuse Basketball coach Jim Boeheim for DEFAMATION for calling her clients liars out for money…
@Kingsleezy Kingsley Dimiri
If Gloria Allred doesn’t get enough publicity in a month, she melts like Frosty the Snowman without that stolen hat.
