The internet’s abuzz with the rumor that famed attorney Gloria Allred is preparing an October surprise. For those who don’t remember, Allred revealed Herman Cain’s adultery and scuttled his campaign for the Republican nomination. She also ended Meg Whitman’s chances of becoming governor of California by revealing that Whitman had fired her maid when she learned the woman was an illegal immigrant.
The Associated Press reported Wednesday that the former wife of Staples founder Tom Stemberg went to court with lawyer Gloria Allred to tell a judge that she does not object to unsealing testimony given by presidential candidate Mitt Romney in her divorce case.
The Boston Globe has also requested that the court lift the seal on the 1990′s divorce case between Tom Stemberg and Maureen Stemberg Sullivan.
A reporter for Romney said, “This is a decades-old divorce case in which Mitt Romney provided testimony as to the value of a company. He has no objection to letting the public see that testimony.”
Initial reports say Romney lied in court, to support his friend, and screwed over his friend’s ex-wife financially.
Romney often touts Staples as one of Bain Capital’s best (only) success stories. Stemberg gave a speech at the RNC convention in which he said Romney “never looked at Staples as merely a financial investment. He saw the engine of prosperity it could become.”
This election has been mostly about the issues up until now, but with Trump’s promise to release dirt on President Obama, and Gloria Allred’s ‘October Surprise’, it’s about to get real dirty real quick.
