2nd HEARING Set On Bid To UNSEAL Romney Testimony

CANTON, Mass. (AP) A Massachusetts probate judge will hold another hearing Thursday before deciding whether to unseal testimony that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney gave in the divorce case of Staples founder Tom Stemberg.

Ex-wife Maureen Stemberg Sullivan appeared in court Wednesday with lawyer Gloria Allred. They said they didn't object to a Boston Globe motion to lift an impoundment order on Romney's testimony in the case from the early 1990s.

Attorneys for Romney and Staples asked the judge for more time to review two booklets of testimony. Stemberg's attorney said he had only been able to review about 20 pages. Romney's attorney says he doesn't anticipate objecting but Romney would like time to review the entire transcript.

No one would say exactly what's in the testimony but it appeared to relate to financial issues.

Staples was founded with backing from Romney's firm, Bain Capital.

1. So this much is true!

Guess Romney will have to do something between his campaign stops. Oh, maybe he should suspend his campaign .

2. At the very least, by tomorrow, this story could be hogging up space in print, radio and TV air time.

The story has not yet saturated. It will if or when those records are unsealed. Regardless of what info is to be found, the spinning of this story will go into overdrive by Democrats especially pushing it into top slot news discussions. This is going to get hairy and rough in the coming 2 week before election day.
