Judge gives newspaper Romney testimony from old lawsuit

Canton, Massachusetts (CNN) - A Massachusetts judge on Thursday unsealed testimony by Mitt Romney in a lawsuit linked to a colleague's contentious divorce battle more than 20 years ago.

The Boston Globe, with the support of attorney Gloria Allred, sought to make public the testimony Romney gave in the lawsuit that followed the divorce between Tom Stemberg, a co-founder of business supply chain Staples, and Maureen Stemberg Sullivan.

    HE LIED UNDER OATH!!! Not only is the man a tax evader, him and Mr. Stemberg stiffed Ms. Sullivan out of MILLIONS. He is not a trustworthy person and should be disqualified for running for office. If he lies on the witness stand, what's to prevent him from lying to YOU?!?!?

    I fully expect that there's really not going to be much found of any real use in the testimony (but we could be suprised). For the most part, the value of this is the entertainment value of watching the Teatrolls run around like someone kicked their anthill over haha.

    And your proof of this is what??? Nothing of course. ANd why didn't her lawyers hire their own professionals to value the company if they thought they were being screwed? I guess this woman and her lawyers are idiots and she should have sued her lawyers for malpractice for not protecting her interests.

    BTW, who forced this woman to sell her stock? NOBODY! She screwed herself!!

    Talk about a bunch of MALARKEY.... nothing but a bitter woman that screwed herself over trying to blame and hurt others. Sort of sounds like the Obama story of the last four years.

    Long Time Democrat...and you was present in Benghazi to know this for a fact....you are a US intelligence official to know this...you have all of the facts, yet you did not specify what he "lied" about. Your opinion is worth less than information that you get from Fox News.

    Well, it's not a surpise to anyone that Mitt Romney lies through his teeth every time he opens his mouth. Whether he may have or may not have lied under oath isn't much of an issue at this late date, no matter what Allred thinks she might uncover. Romney took an oath to God when he became a Mormon Bishop and is generally considered to have lied against that oath as well.

  13. The REAL Truth...

    Would be real interesting if the unsealed testimony turns our to be perjury 🙂
    Would rank right up there with everything else he's said for the last 18 months. If he had to go back to court, I can hear the clerk say "Mitt Romney! Mitt Romney.. would the REAL Mitt Romney please approach the court". LOL

    truth hurts
    "It is great to see Dick Cheney back in great form! He's was a great VP and not a gaffing clown act like Crazy Joe. BTW, has Crazy Joe released his psych evalution yet? He didn't even know what state he was yesterday! Obviously it wa sthe stateof CONFUSION! Down right scary he has been a heartbeat away from the presidency for 4 years. Thankfully that will end in a few weeks."

    Are you serious? Cheney shot someone. In the face. With a shotgun. I think that pretty much trumps any "gaffes" on Joe's part.

  15. They ought to change from the elephant to the hippo...

    Wow. Isn't lying under oath a bad thing in Republican land?

    Well when it's about money, it must be ok...

    We will see if he lied under oath, all of you liberals just keep hopping that is what he did. You all will be proven wrong.

    not sure how we will see if he lied...but would not be real surprised as he does not care much for women...

    Obama has clearly and obviously broke his oath of office in not upholding laws on the books.

    D of M act being one of them.
