Judge OKs release of Romney divorce case testimony

Celebrity attorney Gloria Allred says she’ll ask a Massachusetts judge to lift a gag order on the ex-wife of Staples founder Tom Stemberg before the presidential election so she can discuss GOP candidate Mitt Romney’s testimony in the couple’s bitter divorce.

A probate and family court judge on Thursday said she will allow the release of Romney’s testimony. But the judge refused to rule on whether to lift an order prohibiting Maureen Sullivan Stemberg and her ex-husband from commenting on Romney’s testimony or his interactions with them during the divorce.

When Gloria Allred is your “Ace in the Hole” it’s probably time to fold…

“This is a decades-old divorce case in which Mitt Romney provided testimony as to the value of a company,” Jones said. “He has no objection to letting the public see that testimony.”

Staples was founded with backing from Romney’s firm, Bain Capital. Tom Stemberg has been a surrogate for Romney and spoke on the former Massachusetts governor’s behalf at the GOP convention.

The Boston Globe is in on it too…
