Alternet "Report: Romney Lied in Court And Then Screwed Over His Friend's Wife During Nasty Divorce

Report: Romney Lied in Court And Then Screwed Over His Friend's Wife During Nasty Divorce With Staples Founder

"SNIP...................................................

The story goes like this: Staples founder Tom Stemberg was in the midst of a nasty divorce with his wife Maureen Stemberg Sullivan. Romney, a friend of Stemberg’s who invested in his company, testified in court that Staples was not worth very much. Staple’s stock was “overvalued,” Romney said in court, adding, “I didn't place a great deal of credibility in the forecast of the company's future.”

Romney’s testimony helped ensure that Maureen received very little money when the divorce case was resolved. But the controversy comes from this: “We're told just weeks after the divorce ended, Romney and Tom went to Goldman Sachs and cashed in THEIR stock for a fortune. Short story -- Romney allegedly lied to help his friend and screw the friend's wife over.”

TMZ doesn’t stop there. They also report that as Sullivan was suffering from cancer and multiple sclerosis, Stemberg canceled her health insurance. The kicker is that Stemberg was then working with Romney as a health care adviser.

The divorce trial is attracting attention now as famous lawyer Gloria Allred, representing Maureen Stemberg Sullivan, goes to court to “tell a judge that does not object to unsealing testimony given by presidential candidate Mitt Romney in her divorce case,” the Washington Post reports.

2. What will it take for the World to finally acknowledge that Mitt is a horrible person..

.. devoid of any true morality or empathy? We keep seeing this bombshells about his 47% comments, etc. etc. etc., and still people haven't seemed to figure it out. He's a horrible, horrible, person. His primary opponents know this, the media knows this. He has no real friends, other than paid shills and surrogates on TV.

4. This is why I liked this story - not short and sweet it lingers

Allred (not really a fan) will get her payday and hopefully so will Maureen but this is a story that lingers around like a fart in a basement party

6. That is a Kicker! And, so what if it's TMZ..they do have Scoops.

7. I wonder if Romney could be in serious trouble for perjury or if there might be conflict of interest

8. This falls in line with the type "work"

he did screwing people out of jobs and money and his misogony against women (the way he treated women as a Mormon bishop andother things)! This man is bad news, especially for women!
