Judge sets 2nd hearing
on request to unseal Romney
testimony in Staples
founder’s divorce case

CANTON, Mass. — A Massachusetts probate judge will hold another hearing Thursday before deciding whether to unseal testimony that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney gave in the divorce case of Staples founder Tom Stemberg. Ex-wife Maureen Stemberg Sullivan appeared in court Wednesday with lawyer Gloria Allred. They said they didn’t object to a Boston Globe motion to lift an impoundment order on Romney’s testimony in the case from the early 1990s.

Comments:
This is the Allred sideshow. Still don't know exactly where this ding-bat is going with all this.

This is how Obama got Jack Ryan out of the Illinois senate race, unsealing his divorce records. Hopefully this judge has more stones, but I doubt it.

Straight out of the Obama playbook !
He did the same thing to the opposition when running in Chicago..Obama whore Allred ready to do his bidding.
ANYTHING to get the focus off the fact that Obama lied to the American people about the Embassy killings..Obama knew it was AlQueda, knew the killings were happening and went to bed.
Americans are in severe danger, because the media is helping Obama continue the lies. NO ONE is looking out for our safety under this administration.

There is no legal reason for the divorce records to be made public other than for the naked political goal of finding something to embarrass Romney with. There is nothing profitable for both sides of the divorce for the proceeding to be made public. If Gloria AllRed succeeds in doing so, it will open a whole can of worms for others to follow suit. This will make politics especially Chicago-dirty and set any hope of bipartisanship back just to keep NeroBama in power.

I don't see how Romney's testimony in someone else's divorce case is germane to the election, but go ahead Gloria, you irrelevant hack.

I think the intent is to show that Romney lied on the stand about the true worth of Staples stock. Good luck with that one. Romney and Romney's lawyer have already said they don't care if the testimony is released.

Romney is represented by the ultimate Boston powerhouse law firm, Ropes and Gray. Little Gloria is not going to be happy at last that she tangled with this crew.

10 to 1 there is nothing there and Romney won't object. I expect it was sealed because there was sensitive financial and business information about Staples that they didn't want Staples' competitors to know. From the 90's? Pretty stale by now. Perhaps someone could sue Occidental, Columbia, and Harvard for all of Obama's records. Oh, and his passport files might be interesting as well.

Allred's client is unstable, she's obsessed with the Romney's, and there's nothing "juicy" there at all.

I suspect the judge is giving this another day so it can stay in the media longer. The mystery is better than the truth. I'd love for the ex-husband and Romney to just say, "go ahead, unseal them, fine by me," so everyone involved has egg on his/her face.

This is about an ex-wife with a documentary and "tell all" book to sell. Someone who managed her divorce awards poorly and wants more. An honest media would snub her entirely. We don't have that.

Classic dirty pool: If the records stay sealed, the Dems claim it's because there is some deep, dark, ugly secret in them. If they are unsealed it will provide fodder for a two-week witch hunt as every word Romney spoke will be spun to have an ominous or incriminating meaning.

It doesn't matter what's in the transcript. It's how the media will portray it. We can certainly anticipate more widespread coverage than Benghazi. The NYT will probably lead with it, whatever it is.

Soooooo, after they are unsealed or kept sealed, or whatever, will my husband be able to get a job? Will we be able to re-stock our retirement fund dessimated by the last four years? Will our daughter be able to find a living wage job after graduation from college next year? Will my nephew come home from the Middle East permanently, and alive? Will I have health care I need/want or just whatever the government says I can have? Will my religious freedom be a thing of the past? Will my grandchildren be taught to read, write, and cipher or just how to put a condom on a banana and get rid of unwanted "tissue"? By all means, Ms Allred keep this up, what's in that testimony is so important to the American people.

The ex wife is a poster at HuffPo.
She has posted over 2,000 times.
Many of of it rants against Republicans, Romney and Mormons.
In 1987 , she was was awarded 5 million in the divorce settlement.
Since then she spent 4 million in legal fees trying to get more money.
She lives in an apartment that rents for $ 5200/ month.
She said in a 2006 interview that she has multiple medical problems and needs psychiatric counseling.
The little boy is now 27 years old.
When Allred and this nothingburger is all Obama has , the campaign internals must be even worse
than we can imagine.

Funny how often Obama campaigns end up being about unsealing sealed court records.
I'd call Obama, Axelrod and Allred slimy little weasels, but that would not be fair to slimy little weasels.

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Global warming is not being taken seriously and time is running out to avoid consequences like flooded cities and dried out farmland, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim said Thursday. "We are quickly coming to the point where we are not going to be able to keep global warming below two degrees Celsius," Kim said at the start of the IMF-World Bank spring meetings in Washington. "Warming by two degrees Celsius is going to have major implications.... 40 percent of the arable land in Africa will be gone at two degrees Celsius; Bangkok could very well be underwater at two

An autopsy on Peaches Geldof was inconclusive and toxicology tests will be conducted in an attempt to determine what killed the 25-year-old celebrity, police said Wednesday. Geldof was pronounced dead by paramedics at her home in southeast England on Monday. Kent Police said a post-mortem examination had not revealed the cause and a toxicology report could take several weeks. Geldof, the daughter of Irish musician Bob Geldof and the late TV presenter Paula Yates, had worked as a model, writer and television show host. She grew up in the glare of Britain´s press, which reveled in the late-night antics of her teenage years, and

The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression. (With all respect to Paul Krugman, the truth is more complicated, but that’s not within the scope of this article.)The president’s view of spending, deficits and debt is not merely Keynesian theory run amok. Its origins and objectives are far more terrifying. Where the traditional Democratic playbook for economic downturns was provided

A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 62 percent of likely voters believe that Republicans will repeal Obamacare, which recently marked its fourth anniversary. Only 23 percent of those polled believe that the health care law has been a success, compared to 46 percent who describe the law as a failure. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, offered a Republican alternative to Obama’s health care overhaul last week, saying states should play a greater role in containing health care costs while

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
