Mitt Romney Accused Of Lying In Court, Judge Unseals Testimony

It’s official! A judge ruled that the presidential candidate’s alleged false testimony during Maureen Sullivan Stemberg’s divorce trial, which left her broke and homeless, will be released to ‘The Boston Globe.’

Will Mitt Romney’s bid to become President of the United States be crippled once the candidate’s alleged false testimony from a friend’s divorce trial is released to The Boston Globe? Judge Jennifer Ulwick has ruled in favor of the Globe’s request to release the documents.

Mitt, 65, has been accused of lying in court by his best friend’s ex-wife, TMZ reports. Romney  testified under oath during the 1987 divorce trial of  his close friend Staples founder Tom Stemberg. Tom’s ex-wife Maureen Sullivan Stemberg now claims that Romney  intentionally undervalued the worth of the company in order to prevent her from getting a fair financial settlement during in the divorce. Maureen now is being represented by celebrity attorney Gloria Allred.

An attorney for The  Boston Globe was successful in convincing Judge Ulwick to release the sealed divorce documents. The documents are now expected to be released to the newspaper monemtarily and other media outlets will be allowed access as well. This is a big win for the paper and a potential giant headache for Mitt. However, Mitt’s attorney Robert Jones has said ” this is a decades old divorce case in which Mitt provided testimony as to the value of a company he has no objection to letting the public see that testimony.”

Allred also appeared with Maureen in the same Boston court today, Oct. 25,  but the judge turned down her request to lift a previous gag order on Maureen because Allred had not submitted an official motion to the court. However Allred was thrilled that the divorce documents would be made public.

“It is in the public’s right to know what The Boston Globe is seeking. The public can draw their own conclusions from it,” Gloria said in court.

As a result of Mitt’s testimony, Maureen was left in financial ruin and lost her home, she has said. Meanwhile, Mitt and Tom cashed their stock out from Staples, just weeks later and made a small fortune — proving that there WAS value in the company.

This case gets even more heartbreaking, considering that Maureen suffers from MS and was stricken by cancer. Her ex-husband Tom Stemberg canceled her health insurance in the midst of her cancer treatments. Ironically, this happened as he was working as a chief health care adviser to Mitt, when he was the governor of Massachusetts. But that’s all he did. He also obtained custody of the couple’s son by alleging that Maureen had abused the child and then disowned the child after the divorce drama. Nice guy. Mitt — nice friends you have.

Do YOU think Mitt lied in court, HollywoodLifers?

I ‘am very concerned about the fact of his beliefs,cause what he believes is how he will make his decisions in his business and would be the people of these United States,And in the white house and all that entails. He is a Mormon ! and you need to read the book of mormon,Unless your a mormon your in trouble. So this is how he views the rest of us. I know some would say i am petty,But The Mormon isn’t like being a Jewish ,Catholic, Baptist,or and other Faith. It is a cult.

Wow this story is clearly about Mitt Romney but it circles right back to Obama and the liberal media. Every President in history has lied about something but Obama takes most of the heat and I wonder why.

This women is FAR from broke and homeless! She may be broke b/c she spent all the settlement money she received from her ex on lawyer fees to try to get more $$ from him. She is not homeless as she lives in a $5k a month apartment in an upscale part of Boston. Please know the facts! Also.. if anyone is interested, google this poor ex-wife’s name and see all of her nasty comments on Huffington Post. She is NOT a victim.. just a bitter, scored ex-wife with a score to settle.

WTF does this bullsh*t have to do with anything? these people really underestimate the intelligence of the American people. People are out of work and suffering, they are losing their homes and their health insurance, and they want to know what the candidates are going to do to get this economy going. I work for a company that just laid off 25 people on Monday, it is heartbreaking, as an HR person it is the hardest thing to have to sit and tell someone that they are losing their job to no fault of their own. This type of stuff pisses people off and make them either say forget about voting or vote for the other person. Gloria Alred is an idiot and an ambulance chaser and Donald Trump is a bully and an idiot and anyone who let either one of them influence their vote is just as stupid.

the R&R supporters will be in for a surprise when Romney is put in jail for contempt of court.

he will have a tough time explaining how he turned the company around in one year to almost double the value. the burden of proof in this case will be on Romney.

he is a liar, all he has done through out the campaign is flip flop on each and every topic.

Romney = Flip, Ryan = Flop

Math isn’t your best subject is it? Romney did her a favor 25 years ago when he said the price of the stock was low. That meant her ex had to dish out more shares of stock to give her the price the court deemed appropriate. Had Romney said it was higher she would have received less shares. Now that being said, Romney didn’t tell her to cash out when she did for $2 a share. Anyone with smarts would wait at least until a company went public before cashing out. When Romney testified he was not there as her financial adviser, she has nobody to blame for being broke but herself. Her divorce was 25 years ago, why is she still to this day going back to court for more money? She’s a bitter woman that can’t or won’t for whatever reason move on with her life.

Finally someone with good common sense. I read some of these comments on different blogs and often wonder what the heck went wrong with our educational system in this country? Anyone who knows anything about stocks know that the lower the value the more stock you get. If the judge said that she was owed $500,000 in stock, then she would get more shares if the value was less, and if she held onto those shares she would have made a killing.

Sesame street has more money than Romney does, approx $400 million, so why do they need taxpayer $$$. Their brand is a HUGE moneymaker, check the toy stores for yourself.

There is nothing in the story above that indicates anything, but an opinion that he lied. Who can comment on this without the facts and claim moral superiority? Forming you views from tabloids is reckless.

hahaha “Famed” should never be an adjective to describe Allred. The fact that the Boston Globe, one of the most liberal rags in the nation, and Gloria Allred are involved tells me all I need to know. This happened in the ’90s and it is just now an issue before the election? Smells fishy.

Oh please, you people don’t see a pattern here? Obama did the same thing of getting surrogates to last minute smears in 08…stick yr head back in the sand. And getting the biggest ambulance chaser in the country is no surprize to me or anyone that can be even slightly objective.

It’s pathetic how low this so called “president” will go to win a presidency that the majority of America clearly doesn’t want him to have. In his eyes, ALLEGATIONS regarding a 25 year old divorce testimony is the best distraction for the fact that he covered up a planned terrorist attack for two weeks so the savages of the world could blame America and freedom of speech. This big experiment in affirmative action has failed. Vote this obanga thing back into the gutters of Chicago where it belongs.

This is proof that Mitt Romney has no credibility. A Proven Liar cannot run for President. I imagine he will withdraw from the race presently and I guess Paul Ryan will take the Presidential Slot which is perhaps better for our Wonderful Country. Tell the Truth and Cheat the Devil, and Paul Ryan is not a liar like Mitt Romney. Geaux Tea Party!
