I got it. Shmi in a metal bikini would have made Ms. Tatooine on the galactic pin up calendar. Some rich man would have purchased her for his harem and moved her off Tatooine. SIds told Anakin to set up the Jedi to come to arrest him, thus proving "the coup" took place by recording the fight, then cutting it so it implicated the Jedi in attempted murder and his murder of them was "self-defense." Not a plot hole.
