Gloria Allred vs. Sex-Scandalized Politicians: A History (PHOTOS)

Gloria Allred's involvement in the Herman Cain sexual harassment scandal, as the lawyer representing one of the GOP presidential candidate's accusers, is not her first time at the center of political controversy.

The high-profile attorney has made a name for herself against politicians facing pressure. She has stood on both sides of the partisan coin -- from representing porn star Ginger Lee in her stand against former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), to defending an undocumented immigrant who accused California Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman of emotional abuse.

Allred's also been a prominent face in some Hollywood hiccups. When it comes to money, she has been far from shy toward Democrats, donating thousands of dollars to the likes of John Kerry, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

Here's a look back at Allred's involvement in some memorable cases.
