Will explosive details from divorce case
of ex-Staples CEO stop Romney
becoming president? Allred 'heads
to court to unseal Republican
candidate's sworn testimony'

Daily Mail [UK], by Daniel Miller, Hayley Peterson

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 10/24/2012 8:14:40 AM

Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney's character will be called into question if explosive details of his sworn testimony at the divorce hearing of former Staples CEO Tom Stemberg, are released to the public today, it has been claimed. Celebrity attorney Gloria Allred, who has promised an 'October surprise', is due in court in Canton, Massachusetts this morning for an application to have case records unsealed and a gagging order on all parties involved lifted. The Boston Globe newspaper filed the application after reportedly receiving a tip-off that there was 'juicy information about Romney' in the sealed documents. The revelations are said

Well then, I guess it's time to unseal all of Our Dear Readers records, including his 'Birth Certificate', school transcripts, passports, and the reason that his law license was revoked?

Didn't think so...

Who cares about what was said in a child custody matter? Completely irrelevant to the presidential election!

It's testimony of personal observations and opinion- a character witness experience. So? Prove he lied? Prove he told the truth? Good luck with all that All Red lady.

It doesn't even matter if she succeeds in unsealing the records. The left can now talk ad infinitum about the "scandal" in Romney's past and hopefully keep a few conservatives home November 6.

A reasonable judge would link these ocuments to the sealed Obama records

If they do this then Romney should simply say "Where are your transcripts Mr. Obama?"

The records were sealed for a reason. Often the settlement is "guaranteed" by the gag orde. If you start rumors or write a tell all you have to pay back the settlement money. As such the records cannot be unsealed until ALL the involved parties have a chance to appear and argue in court.

That has clearly not happened in this "emergency" hearing. The fact that a Judge agreed to even hold such a kangaroo circus is scary. Even in the heat of an historic election the rule of law MUST hold. I cannot see how this even hiints at equal protection. If this is a custody matter unsealing records so they can all be dragged through the mud on a national stage would hardly seem to be in the best interests of the child.

It would be surprising if there were any info about Romney in these records, as he was testifying about someone else; the case was not about him. The only thing is his testimony could be twisted to claim he was anti-women. I'm waiting for Donald Trump.

This isn't about Romney. Allred knows that her chances are next to none. She is seeking publicity (business in the sexist business must be slow) and to make sure those that support anyone but the socialist of choice will be brutally attacked.

FTA-'Governor Romney is running for President of the United States and this goes to a very important character issue.'

If it was so bloody important why wait until 2 weeks before the election to try to get these records unsealed? Gloria Allred is a fine one to talk about character issues.

I'm pretty sure most people won't decide who runs this country by anything in a divorce case. Just a trashy ambulance chaser trying to stay in front of the cameras. When I see her (Allred) promoting a cause, I automatically take the opposite side.

Perhaps there was a time when what Gloria Allred said mattered, but since it has been exposed that the MSM and pond scum like Allred lie through their teeth most of the time, it really doesn't matter what grand revelation she's got.

We have seen Mitt Romney and we have seen the Left. There is no damage this harridan can do to Mitt.

An added note - could Gloria Allred and Nancy Pelosi be clones of one another - unpleasant looking women.

#24 is absolutely right. In Democrat Chicago, Obama's "people" got the divorce records of his opponent unsealed. I believe the guy's name was Ryan who dropped out of the race in disgrace. Obama went on to win his race to United States Senate.

And now here comes the nasty Ms. Alred, galloping her way up to the microphone to sling her poop like an outraged chimpanzee...in a really bad wig.

This is a replay from the Chicago playbook. Reference Illinois senate race where a California judge unsealed the divorce records of Mr. & Mrs (hot Jeri) Ryan (against the express wishes of both) so that nasty accusations could be made, prompting Mr. Ryan to withdraw from the race. Guess who benefited from that little action?

This is Axelrod's favorite tactic -- pursuit of sealed divorce/custody court records. The Chicago Obama machine did this to Blair Hull in the 2004 Senatorial primary, and again against Jack Ryan (R) in the general election with the help of a trial court judge more interested in electing Obama than protecting children. Without this tool, Obama would have been defeated in his Senate seat bid.

The difference, now, of course, is that Romney was merely a witness. That won't matter to the Prog faithful, of course, as a smear is a smear . . . . This resounds on the same frequency as the the word "binder". If the latter is enough to work you up into a lather, so will the former.

Testimony in court is just the witness telling what they saw or their take on the situation. It has nothing to do with the character of that person. Gloria Allred is trying to stir up nothing with empty hands.

FTA: "'Governor Mitt Romney gave sworn testimony about his observations of Tom's role as a father to his four sons.'
And Maureen Stemberg apparently remains extremely bitter about his part in her divorce, posting last month: 'I know the man and his wife. President Obama the only one to be our President!'"

And that is what this is REALLY about.

Records can be unsealed if there is a compelling reason. One such reason is the public's right to know under the First Amendment. This comes about when a news media wants to know about a politician. The courts find that such is grounds for unsealing records because of the public's right to know in order to properly exercise their civic duty (as in We The People).
Too bad conservative papers didn't try this with BHO.
Just mud slinging by a dem operative that hopes to stir up trouble where there is none and keep her name in the public while she's at it. The timing appears to be designed to only stir up trouble. Since the Gov. was only a witness I don't see how there could be a compelling issue.

He has no objection to letting the public see that testimony.'"

Why can't we get Obama's records unsealed?

RE #45, my guess is that there were stock options, restricted stock units, or some other equity holding to be split in the divorce. In a privately held company, valuing these assets can be a hard thing to do and different appraisers might come up with wide variations in value. I'd guess that Romney gave a valuation based on the business as it was at the time, which may not have been very high. Then later, the stock value increased as time went by. Looking back, doing a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking, the X-wife thinks she has been "cheated" and that the witness "lied" etc. I'd guess that she spent her part of the divorce settlement very quickly and then looked enviously at the X-husband and what he had left in the bank. And she covets what the X-husband has, what the new wife has, and what Mitt Romney has. Bitter, bitter, bitter.

If the records are not unsealed, she may be bitter enough to violate the court order and disclose her stash of documents that she has been holding for just such an occasion and purpose. She apparently tried to do this back when Romney ran for office in MA. Allred is a sleaze bag for helping this bitter, vindictive woman.

Another article called the divorce "extremely contentious." It seems to me the lady(?) wants another bite of the apple.

FTA: It is unclear what if any lump sum she got out of the divorce, but it is known she was awarded 500,000 shares in the company. She later went on to cash in half of these before the company went public - missing out on a huge windfall as stocks soared from $2 to $19.

Romney and her ex-husband were in business together, Romney was called to state the (then current) value of their company, then she was greedy and sold her shares before the company went public and made a huge gain in value. Does she think Romney now owes her $4,250,000 for the shares that she decided to sell too soon?

That people like this threaten the well being of this country is sickening to me. This does not in any way cause me to think any differently of Mitt Romney. The bubble is about to burst and there is going to be a blast of fresh air hit this country.

Speaking to a conference of Jewish leaders in New York on Tuesday, NYPD officials said they are aware that the trial may ‘inspire’ terrorist acts. A decade after Abu Hamza was first arrested in Britain on a US warrant for terrorism charges, he is finally due to go on trial in Manhattan. The hook-handed cleric is facing allegations that he

David Cameron has ordered an urgent review of the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood, because of fears the group might be planning an attack on the UK. The assessment will involve The Secret Intelligence Service (nicknamed MI6), who deal with external threats and Britain´s internal intelligence service: MI5. The review will look at the "philosophy and activities" of the Muslim Brotherhood, to establish how many leaders of the group have been allowed in the country. It will also investigate whether the Brotherhood held a top level meeting in London last year. Fears of an attack have come about because members of

Vegetarians are less healthy and have a worse quality of life than meat eaters, according to a study by the University of Graz, Austria. According to the study, those who abstain from meat are "less healthy (in terms of cancer, allergies, and mental health disorders), have a lower quality of life, and also require more medical treatment." Vegetarians were twice as likely to have atopy (allergies), a 50 percent increase in cancer and a 50 percent increase in heart attacks. They also drank less alcohol. This is not the first time counter-intuitive research has shown the negative effects of consuming

A powerful earthquake measuring 8.2 on the Richter scale struck off northern Chile Tuesday night, setting off a small tsunami that forced evacuations along the country´s entire Pacific coast and much of Latin America. Chilean officials say two people died when the earthquake struck at 8.46pm local time and several others are seriously injured. While it appears the area escaped major damage and casualties, landslides blocked roads, power failed for thousands, an airport was damaged and several businesses caught fire. About 300 inmates escaped from a women´s prison in the city of Iquique, and officials said Chile´s military was sending a

Under California law, residents signing up for government services like welfare or other public assistance must also be sent a voter registration card. But a couple of lifelong Republicans were shocked this week when the state´s Obamacare registrar sent theirs with ´Democratic Party´ already checked off. Following a lawsuit from a voting-rights group, Covered California began sending out more than 4 million voter registration forms last week. But they´re supposed to be completely blank. ´It´s a waste of money because there´s an awful lot of people who are going to get this that are already registered and they don´t need

This ancient and priceless teddy bear could be the beloved childhood toy of Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun. Archaeologists unearthed a 3,000-year-old mummified teddy bear, believed to be the oldest in existence, at a tomb in Egypt. And it has led experts to believe the Ancient Egyptians not only cuddled up with the toys at night, but once worshipped their furry playthings. The landmark discovery marks the first time an Egyptian teddy bear has been discovered in perfect condition. The ancient toy was excavated in a funerary deposit in the Valley of the T’eds, near Luxor in Egypt.

On the final day of enrollment this year for medical insurance under the Affordable Care Act, the federal government website that runs the program went offline. Again. And White House Press Secretary Jay Carney found himself in the awkward position of taking a victory lap--citing enrollment totals of more than 6 million--while last-minute customers were frozen out of the system. Carney appeared rattled at the beginning of his daily press briefing, committing an unforced error that quickly attracted scorn on social media. ´Six out of ten people without insurance can get insurance for $100 a day or less,´ he said,

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied. In a Tuesday appearance on HuffPost Live to discuss outreach to African American communities,

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, criticized last year by a Vatican official for her support of abortion, received a rosary Tuesday from President Obama that was blessed by Pope Francis. Mrs. Pelosi told reporters of the president’s gift after having lunch with Mr. Obama at the White House. The president met with the pope last week at the Vatican. “I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis,” she said. “It means a great deal to me.” Last year, a Vatican official in Rome said that Mrs. Pelosi should be denied communion. “This is a person who obstinately,

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it. "As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake

The story of the first-generation Ghanian-American student accepted by all eight Ivy league schools is wonderful, but it also stirs up the tension between black Americans and recent African immigrants — especially when you describe him as "not a typical African-American kid." That´s been the reaction to USA Today´s profile on Kwasi Enin, a Long Island high schooler who got into the nation´s most competitive schools through hard work and, according to IvyWise CEO Katherine Cohen, being African (and being male). At one point the piece reads: Being a first-generation American from Ghana also helps him stand out, Cohen says. "He´s

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December
