Conservative blogosphere has been abuzz today about reports that Obama supporter Gloria Allred has an “October surprise” prepared for Mitt as per this report:
Famed civil rights attorney Gloria Allredwill be in a Boston area courtroom Wednesday in an attempt to unseal the sworn testimony given by Republican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, in a prior court case, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
Civil rights attorney? That’s how they bill Miss Allred? A reader thinks he knows what this is all about, and directs me to this TMZ post. Allred wants to unseal the records of “Staples co-founder Tom Stemberg and his first wife Maureen”.
This is scraping the bottom of the barrel. Mr. Romney just testified at the trial. The case wasn’t even about him.
FROM THE COMMENTS: Ryan questions my conclusion: “Scrapping the bottom of the barrel? More like ten feet UNDER the barrel!”
UP-UPDATE: Sorry, Gloria, there appears to be no there there. Romney’s lawyer is okay with testimony being made public:
Robert Jones, an attorney at the Boston law firm of Ropes & Gray, who is representing Romney in this matter told TIME in a statement, “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.”
