Posted on 10/24/2012 3:50:40 PM PDT by mojito
As I write this, Barack Obama's gal-pal Gloria Allred and the Boston Globe have aligned themselves with the Chicago Machine in a partisan crusade to launch an October Surprise against Mitt Romney. That we all know. What you might not know is that Allred's client, Maureen Sullivan, the woman pushing to unseal the gag order on her own divorce records, is a embittered leftie, a Huffington Post "Super User," and a vicious anti-Mormon bigot. For what's obviously a manufactured reason, Sullivan blames Mitt Romney for a divorce settlement she received during the early-nineties. Time's Mark Halperin reports that while he was Chairman of Bain Capital, Romney was called to testify in the divorce proceedings between Staples founder (and Romney friend) Tom Stemberg, and Ms. Sullivan. Supposedly, Romney's testimony about the value of Staples at the time affected the eventual settlement agreement. Flash-forward over 15 years later and Ms. Sullivan still hasnt gotten over it.

What a farce.
And why does Allred, a CA attorney, get to practice law in MA? Has she passed the bar in MA?
It would have had just the opposite effect as the one they desired.
After four years of Ubama, most people recognize a manufactured crisis when they see one.
Quick - somebody ping Greg West!
Never let a manufactured crisis go to waste.
Wait ! I think I hear the theme from The Twilight Zone playing as I read the article. :)
The “hack” part is right.
This is an October surprise?
Wow they really are running scared!
What do you mean, “passed the bar”??
She’s been in the bar. Lots of times. Just like Biden.
The attorney for Romney in this case has said Romney has no objection to the testimony being unsealed. He simply testified regards the value of a company because of stock involved in the divorce settlement. So this is much ado about nothing.
Let’s see: tens of millions unemployed for months and years.
Homes foreclosed and people living on the streets or in cars or shelters (when there is room).
Pensions lost. 47,000,000+ on food stamps.
Cuts to everything. Downsizing.
And the Zero Administration thinks that a pampered woman who got $5,000,000 and the pricey Manhattan condo WAHHHHHHH, is the woman scorned and beaten down.
Sounds like a winner to me.
No wonder the whole FOUR FLIPPING YEARS of Obama’s administration has been an exercise in stupidity.
The judge might unseal it tomorrow..I say GOOD do it! This story is such a dud Gloria WHORERED is such a laughing stock..even Romney’s campaign people said go ahead, unseal it because it will show NOTHING..my belief is that Obama is down big in the polls..otherwise if he were leading would they really need to resort to THIS
that figures..best to get the stroy out there ahead of time.
Colofornian works for Alred?
This woman sounds like a looney tune. If her child was being abused; why didn’t she do something about it? Apparently it was okay for her to send her child to the alleged abusers.
Does Allred have a license to practice in MA? Look it up for yourself.
Not so nothing. Say Romney testified that the Staples pre-IPO stock was worth 1.00, not unreasonable for pre-IPO valuation. Then say the divorce court gives her a million shares.
Then her lawyers get her to cash in the pre-IPO shares, for “legal expenses”. OK.
Then Staples goes public and the IPO share price is $20....ROMNEY RIPPED HER OFF to the tune of $20,000,000! I mean, that’s what the media angle is, or will be.
As for a law license, that does not seem to be a rule that Democrats need follow.
It’s polite to ping people when you attack them, with untruths.
