The presidential candidate’s campaign could be crippled, as the former wife of his business tycoon best friend partnered with Gloria Allred to take him down in court. The claim? Mitt’s false testimony during Maureen Sullivan Stemberg’s divorce trial left her broke and homeless!
Mitt, 65, is being accused of lying in court by his best friend’s ex-wife, TMZ reports. He was under oath during the divorce trial of Staples founder Tom Stemberg, and Tom’s ex-wife Maureen claims that he intentionally undervalued the worth of the company in order to screw her out of money in the trial.
Among his claims? Calling the company’s stock “overvalued” and saying”I didn’t place a great deal of credibility in the forecast of the company’s future.”
Noted attorney Gloria Allred appeared with Maureen in a Boston court on October 24, as she is representing her in the case.
As a result of his testimony, Maureen lost her home and has a hard time getting back on her feet. Meanwhile, Mitt and Tom cashed their stock out from Staples and made a small fortune — proving that there was value in the company.
This case gets even more heartbreaking, considering that Maureen has suffered from MS and cancer — and was cut off from her health insurance by her ex-husband. Ironically, this happened as he was working as a chief health care adviser to Mitt, when he was the governor of Massachusetts.
