Gloria Allred has eased off of John Travolta lately and has a new famous target in her sights — Mitt Romney!
In what has been called her "October surprise," the famed lawyer represented Maureen Stemberg Sullivan, the ex-wife of Staples founder Tom Stemberg, in Massachusetts court this morning. The presidential hopeful testified at the couple's divorce proceedings back in the 90s because he worked closely with Stemberg and the Boston Globe is asking for "a court order to unseal the sworn testimony."
Allred arrived with Sullivan at the Norfolk Probate & Family Court in Canton to tell a judge she does not object to the newspaper's request because:
"Ms. Allred's client feels that the public needs to know about Governor Mitt Romney's role in this very important case. Governor Romney is running for President of the United States and this goes to a very important character issues."
Mitt Romney isn't objecting either. His lawyer told sources:
"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.”
Well, that was easy.
Guess the Boston Globe will let us know soon enough what his testimony consisted of. Based on his lawyer's words, it doesn't sound like anything too damning will be revealed.
