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

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 10/24/2012 11:23:01 AM

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.

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.

The professor who refused to sign last week’s high-profile UN climate report because it was too ‘alarmist’, has told The Mail on Sunday he has become the victim of a smear campaign.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged 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.
