October Surprise Revealed: Gloria
Allred Heads To Court,
Attempts To Unseal Mitt Romney
Testimony And Lift Gag Order

Radar Online, by Jen Heger

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 10/23/2012 6:33:48 PM

Famed civil rights attorney Gloria Allred will be in a Boston area courtroom Wednesday in an attempt to unseal the sworn testimony given by Republican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, in a prior court case, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting. "The Boston Globe is headed to court tomorrow morning for an emergency hearing in an attempt to obtain a court order to unseal the sworn testimony given by Mitt Romney in a prior court case and to lift a gag order so that the parties can speak about Romney. Gloria Allred will be in court representing one of the parties in the

Comments:
It would take a crooked political judge to release sealed testimony for campaign purposes. I would also think any appeals process would keep this locked up beyond the election. The sole purpose might be to cause that to happen as there might not even be anything of any significance there.

Obama did this in his Senate campaign against illinois senator Ryan (not same Ryan).

Scummy. Since it's MA, they'll get the filth.

All Romney's Attorneys would have to do is ask for a continuance. DOA.

Besides, the whole point of a sealed document is to PROTECT the parties, including a child -- something Allred, Axelrod and Obama could care less about.

Of course the records will not be made public, which is exactly what the slimy creeps wanted. That way they can speculate about things far worse than what is actually there, and the media will report that speculation as fact. Remember, it is the seriousness of the charge that matters, not the truth.

With what we know about Romeneys character does anyone really believe theres a bucket of slime hidden under a rock somewhere with his name on it?

If something really juicy existed no court order could ever have kept it secret in the Mass courts. It would have been leaked, maybe even by the judge. This entire cesspool of a state is nothing but a democrat hackorama. I've personally been in pig stys that are far cleaner than the political world here.

This has Obama's MO written all over it.
Evidently it has something to do when Romney was Bishop and counseled a Morman woman to keep her baby rather than abort it.
I believe she filed suit after she had the abortion.
Unseal Obama's records too..let's air everything out.

Over the last few years, I've had just about enough (a belly full, to be exact) of this vicious, bitter, headline-craving old hag. Doesn't she have anything better to do?

Is this what Allred went to law school for? To run around the country trying her best to get on camera and destroy good and decent men and women? She should have her claws out for criminals such as child molesters; God knows there are plenty of them out there.

Hmmmm...the Norfolk Probate & Family Court in Canton, Massachusetts? Since we know Mitt has never been divorced, it can't be the sealed proceedings of his children's custody (like Jack Ryan).

Did AllRed dig up some woman (her only client base) who now feels she should get more money now than was awarded then??

Does she think Mitt said something (following church teachings) that could be twisted to "he maliciously said it to deny this poor woman what she deserves" and try to make Romney look bad as a candidate??

This is how O won the Senate in Illinois. He had the divorce records of his main primary opponent and his Republican Senate opponent unsealed--using the press as a surrogate. What standing does Gloria Allred have to unseal these documents? The press can claim the First Amendment.

Ms. Ulwick was a mere Assistant Judicial Case Manager, according to the Middlesex website, but she has since been elevated (see below).

Little video of her here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3iQW8TvoNOs

Her Nomination from Obama uber alles man Deval Patrick:
http://masslawyersweekly.com/the-docket-blog/2012/02/07/patrick-nominates-three-to-probate-court/

And of course, her assignment of this request was likely no accident. Chances of a new car in her driveway before Christmas? High...very high.

Their previous strategies so far...
1) Couldn't get his tax returns out of the IRS (well, legally anyhow)
2)tried to highlight and unseal records (How odd...Obama camp fighting to unseal records...amazing coincidence!) a 1981 boat license issue that turned into an arrest over alleged disorderly conduct (yes, look for it it's out there, old news and minor)
3) Obama signature move to secure his Senate seat was, as another above mentioned...to unseal damaging divorce records.
4) Trump has some counterintel and will hopefully go full monty with it soon.

So, par for the course with this crowd.

Does anyone think for a minute that Romney, a long-time Mormon, has any skeletons in his closet - don't think so. As mad as Newt was at Romney for all the negative ad's in the primaries, I'm sure newt would have brought this up.

And there's a big difference between a gag order and sealed documents. More than likely has to do with one of his boys. Boys being boys sometimes end up in trouble.

Just look at Barry's record in his various campaigns. He prefers to disqualify or embarrass his opponents out of the race and run unopposed. That failing he loves to run against second and third rate competition like John McCain or Alan Keyes. This current presidential race is the first real contest he's ever been in, except of course when Congressmen Bobby Rush called him ''an educated fool'' and beat him like a rented mule in Obama's first race for Congress. Obama's lesson from that early beating was that elections are problematic and need to be simplified by any means necessary... Hence, Allred to the rescue!

Howie Carr has the scoop. It is a very old known story about a case in which Romney counseled a woman against an abortion. Months old, story was out already, they just dug up the corpse. That's all.

And as Allred joins the frey, where are all those Republicans who knee-jerk hasten to add about Obama, ''..., but he's a nice guy.''

In last night's debate, we clearly saw what kind of lying, arrogant, petty, disrespectful... un-nice guy Obama really is.

#15, that sort of thing wouldn't be handled in F and P Court. And if the maid claimed she was assaulted by Romney, it would be a criminal matter.

Insofar as the abortion counseling story is concerned, they've been trying use that against Romney since 1994. In any case, the woman who had the abortion is refusing to speak except through an intermediary.

Maybe someone can find the elusive police report regarding Gloria's rape accusation in Mexico (if any charges were pressed, i'm sure she was too upset to /s), and the autopsy of one of her husbands who committed suicide.

BTW, I guess all of you know she hitched her star to Norma McCorvey and Sandra Cano, better known as Roe re: Roe v. Wade and Doe, re: Doe v. Bolton back in the day.

She must be one of the Lilith, free sex, parade 15 year old rape victims on TV, man hating, yet Eden's morality police women.

The bar should have dropped the hammer on her a long time ago.

While the press goes there, maybe they could look up the social security number the prez uses from that state and his rush to pay his decades old tickets from Harvard days and a lot more juicy... and I mean juicy stuff.

Hey where's Auntie Zeituni and Uncle Omar?

We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.

CNN Reports Romney Internal
Polling Shows Obama Leading In Ohio

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama.

Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
