Toyboys, bankruptcy, a conman and a raging 25-year war with her ex-husband: The furious 'firecracker' ex-wife of Staples founder gunning to bring Romney down with 'October Surprise' Daily Mail (UK), by Daniel Bates
For somebody who claims to be known as a ‘firecracker’, Maureen Sullivan is a woman who has been burned more than her fair share. Aged 61, she has been swindled out of $168,000 by a conman, lost a $5m fortune and missed out on a stock market jackpot worth double that. She has gone bankrupt with just $50 in her hand, been sued for defamation and had a string of toyboys, one of whom got her name tattooed on his right arm as a token of his devotion.
Comments: Sullivan has got to be one of the most messed-up X-wives in the country. Obama, Axelrod, and Allred should be ashamed to exploit this bitter deranged woman. Read the whole article to see just how unhinged the woman is. She was so vengeful that she spent all her money running up legal fees. Then she had to sell the stock to pay attorney fees. Now she blames Romney for all her problems, same as Barack blames Bush for all of his. Obama and this woman need to be linked together forever.
Poor, poor Maureen. And it's all Mitt Romney's fault! It's no WONDER she feels cheated. She only came away from her marriage with .... ... a $700,000 Boston mansion ... $100,000 in furnishings ... $32,000 a year in alimony ... $24,000 a year in child support ... 500,000 shares of Staples stock which she sold before it grew in value.
Why it's enough to make any woman furious. How was she to know the stock value would increase? How was she to know the toyboys were only after her money? How was she to know the attorneys would keep so much? s/o
Hey, Maureen, just wait until you see Gloria's bill!
No swing voter has good impressions about Gloria. Her client is a nutcase and so is she so let them out on the public square and make fools of each other for all to see. A 25 year battle with a battle-ax for all.
Plenty of time to refute everything before the election. In fact, this crazy broad is being totally discredited before anything comes out, if it ever does. So, he told the court that the stock was valued wrong? So he couldn't see the future? Can't have a non-clairvoyant in the White House, now can you?
Just read the divorce papers, appended to another article posted.
Not a chance, Obie. Another exploding cigar. It didn't help Maureen's case that she lied about her own income to the court. But the judge wrote in excruciating detail about this matter and his final decision was that she had proved no wrongdoing.
As for Mitt Romney his testimony is of no concern to him and his lawyers, they don't care whether it is unsealed or not. He told the truth.
Crazy Maureen obviously doesn't understand how stocks work - particularly restricted stock shares - nor does she want to admit that in her greed she did not follow advice given that it would be "prudent" to sell only some of her shares. She sold the whole thing. She might have made more had she waited a while. But even this was unpredictable, and divorce settlements are on real assets at current values, not some hoped-for number in the future.
Re #12, the judge's divorce decision, a lengthy disposition on the whole history of the parties, their marriage, their separation, her psychiatric problems, her livein boyfriend, her lying about her income, her "hormonal problems", tends to lay bare her flakiness.
She sounds like she's always been an idiot. Now she's a bitter idiot.
I don't think this will hurt Romney at all, since he doesn't have any direct role in her demise. If she had been smarter, she'd be in better financial shape. No one made her give that money to a conman.
I'm sure this is part of obama's "war on women" campaign but the problem he has with selling this is that his other war, the war on the wealthy, has been too successful. I can't imagine anyone feeling sorry for a woman who was given millions in a divorce settlement and then blew it all.
How much ya wanna bet that the 'sealed' records get leaked. The firecracker has nothing to lose and Allred will, of course, have had nothing to do with it. This Surprise is as stupid as Trump's revelation that Obama and Michelle once considered divorce - not worthy of concern - just a pathetic attempt at staying in the news.
Is this the best they can do. Allred is such an ambulance chaser; she follows around these nut case women just to get her ugly face on television. As for Ms. Sullivan, yikes, why would anyone take this woman seriously; she is a moron. She deserves to be poor, because she made such dumb decisions.
#20, I DID read the article. Every word of it. (By the way, Charlestown isn't a wealthy neighborhood, as reported here, though a small part of it is very upscale.) The point I'm making is that this woman is NOT being presented as a flake in the mainstream media, which is still, unfortunately, where the majority of people get their news. The Daily Mail, entertaining though it may be, is not standard fare for most people.
Stupid Law-Cow Allred needs to buy a clue since her TV show went south. This is not only OLD news, it is not even about Romney. Mrs Sullivan can't blame Romney for her stock quadrupling in price after she sold it. Even if it was about Romney, Governor Romney was never married to her husband so the ex-wife needs to double park her broom and come in out of the weather. Drag that has-been Allred in with her, too.
It was a flight bound for Florida, and some airline pilots believe it also may have been a dry-run for terrorists. The 10 News Investigators have obtained an internal memo that details a frightening incident that brings back memories of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Since then, federal efforts have gone in place to prevent a similar attack, leading many to believe another attack what happened on 9/11 could never happen again. Wolf Koch, who flies Boeing 767s for Delta Airlines and is the Aviation Security Committee Chairman for the Air Line Pilots Association International, says that belief "is very foolish."
HOUSTON – A Texas Court of Appeals in Austin has overturned the conviction of former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, attorney Brian Wice told KVUE sister station KHOU 11 News. DeLay, 66, was convicted in 2010 for his alleged role in a scheme to influence Texas elections. He was found guilty of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering after he was accused of helping funnel corporate money to Texas candidates in 2002.
After purchasing the Boston Globe in 1993 for a then-record $1.1 billion, the financially troubled New York Times just announced it sold the 141 year-old paper to Boston Red Sox owner John Henry for a mere $70 million. That´s a straight 93% loss. Figuring in two decades of inflation would only make it worse -- as does the fact the Times retains the Globe´s pension liabilities, estimated at over $100 million. (snip) What might have sweetened the lower offer for the Times is that Henry offered a straight cash deal, which is expected to close sometime in September or October.
Things are going from bad to worse for Anthony Weiner after his spokeswoman went off on an expletive-laden rant about a former campaign intern after she wrote an unflattering expose of his faltering New York mayoral campaign.Barbara Morgan was so incensed by Olivia Nuzzi´s actions that she lost her cool - apparently unaware that she was talking on the record - when she (snip) called the former intern a ´fame hungry b***h who sucked at her job,´ she also called Nuzzi a ‘s*****g,’ ‘t**t,’ and ‘c**t´ and threatened to sue her.
A conservative group is challenging Democrat Ed Markey’s Massachusetts residency less than a week before he faces a special election for a U.S. Senate seat in that state. Markey, currently a member of the House of Representatives, should legally be considered a resident of Maryland, America Rising PAC stated in a Tuesday complaint filed with the Maryland state comptroller. The group also claims Markey violated Maryland law by failing to file Maryland tax returns despite living primarily in that state.
After San Antonio’s Sebastien De La Cruz’s national anthem rendition drew racist tweets, the Spurs invited back the 11-year old former “America’s Got Talent” semifinalist to sing again tonight. Before the Spurs hosted the Heat in Game 4 of the NBA Finals, De La Cruz’s encore wowed the crowd. See a video of his performance on Tuesday.
The American woman who was shot dead in Syria accused of being an Al Qaeda supporter married a Muslim man in a sham wedding for which she was paid cash and a van, MailOnline can reveal. Nicole Mansfield entered in a ´deal´ with Ayman Mohammed Bafil under which they would stay together until he got a green card. The pair met online, never lived together and did not even consummate their marriage - but after his papers came through he paid her what he owed. Records show that the couple were married in July 2010 but divorced in August 2011 when she apparently learned that
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
