Mitt Romney

Judge UNSEALS Docs,

Allred Gets Shut Down

1025_gloria_allred_court_article
Mitt Romney's testimony in his friend's divorce case -- in which he's accused of lying under oath to screw over his friend's ex-wife -- will be unsealed today and released to the Boston Globe ... the judge has ruled. 

As we first reported, Mitt testified in the divorce of Staples' founder Tom Stemberg -- and Tom's ex-wife Maureen claims Mitt lied under oath, falsely undervaluing Staples' stock in order to shaft her in the divorce.

Mitt's people have already said the Presidential hopeful doesn't care if the testimony is released -- he has nothing to hide.

Things didn't fare so well for Gloria Allred -- her request to ungag her client was shut down by the hot judge ... because Gloria never submitted an official motion to the court.

Gloria was grasping at straws in a last ditch effort to get the judge to cut her a break -- but she was shot down, hard.

The transcripts will be released to the Globe any minute.

8:30 AM PT -- Gloria denied accusations she's a "surrogate" for the Democratic party ... who's only representing Stemberg in order to wreak havoc on the Romney campaign.

8:20 AM PT  --
During a news conference, Gloria accused the Boston Globe of pulling a "double-cross" because she says the paper abandoned its motion to have the gag order against Maureen Sullivan Stemberg lifted.

but 25 or so years ago, Staples stock WAS pretty much worthless. After the divorce and her selling a bunch of it, it went up in value, some 5-10 years later.

If this woman is so poor from her divorce... how is she affording Gloria Allred? Who is paying Gloria for her services....I smell something fishy!! Besides if they have to dig so deep to find anything on Romney it just shows desperation!

There's a problem here    

This shiz is getting ridiculous. Dear Lord, these people are running for President of the United States of America and you have this asshool trying to dig up some divorce crap dirt on Governor Romney, and yesterday you had Donald Trump having public oral diarrhea about yet another birth certificate and the college records of President Obama. Don't forget the Divine Rapes and Sarah Palin's shucking and jiving. GET OVER IT PEOPLE. Both of these people truly believe they can do good for the USA. Haters gotta hate but this is way out of hand. Grow the F up and love your country.

This is absolutely ridiculous. You choose to report this "breaking news" before the election when important information, like the White House covering up that they knew the attacks in Benghazi were terrorist attacks or Obama refusing to admit the truth. The lives of Americans and the Navy SEALS, the best and brightest in the world, were taken because of Obama and his administration's ego and lack of leadership. Shame on you, TMZ, for reporting on something so frivolous.

Wow...can we get an open hearing on releasing Obumbo's passport records and college applications this fast? He is the only president EVER in history to have them hidden.

Overall, Romney doesn't care if this stupid divorce case is unsealed, NO OBJECTION. But Obumbo is objecting to releasing his own passport and college applications? WAKE UP!!!

So, you are still pushing this silly "ex husband / wife, he said, she said" story. But you have not ONCE mentioned the emails that show this Administration knew Bengazi was a terror attack just hours after the incident. They absolutely lied to the American people for weeks, blaming it on an Internet video that was on the web since July. People DIED here, but yea let's focus on a silly divorce court story. Nice job!

She got 500,000 shares. She would have received fewer shares if Mitt said they worth $10 or $20 a share. Mitt did her a favor. She blew it.

None of this will make a difference - those who are Romney fans, won't take this seriously....those who are NOT Romney fans, well, they weren't voting for him anyways, so who cares? This is just a colossal waste of time and money. No big October surprise.
