Mitt Romney Staples Scandal: Candidate Accused of Lying Under Oath to Protect Friend's Fortune

by at . Comments

For all his ridiculous muster, Donald Trump didn't actually break any news with his supposed Barack Obama bombshell today.

But Gloria Allred may have uncovered something sordid about Mitt Romney, and it's all based on a testimony the candidate many years ago involving Staples founder Tom Stemberg and his first wife, Maureen.

Mitt Romney Rallies

According to TMZ sources, Maureen alleges that Romney lied under oath when he told a judge Staples was worth noting, labeling the company's stock as "overvalued" and concluding that he doesn't place a "great deal of credibility in the forecast of the company's future."

Why would Romney supposedly pretend Staples was a dead end?

Because his testimony helped assure Maureen would receive very little in her settlement.

How can it be proven that Romney actually lied and didn't simply mis-judge the value of the stock?

Because he and Tom cashed in their dividends for a fortune with Goldman Sachs just a few weeks after the divorce trial concluded.

Allred, a notoriously attention-starved attorney, is seeking to unseal Romney's testimony in this case.

Says a rep for Tom Stemberg in response:

"Over the past several years, the judge in this case has made it very clear that the gag order imposed should not be violated. We have never violated this order and will continue to adhere to the court’s ruling on this case."

So... are you buying any of this? Do you think Mitt Romney acted unethically or illegally? And, if so, does it affect your vote?

Oh, so now we are supposed to take the word of a bitter ex-wife? What is that desperate Allred going to do when the courts don't allow the testimony to be unsealed? Good grief. She's as much as an attention whore as Kim K!

Not so fast! The Obama Admin. has been telling significant lies to the nation. "Benghazi-Gate" is fast becoming the centerpiece scandal that shows how deceptive this Chicago thug-based Admin. really is! Obama can't be trusted. Time for a change!

Let me help you non-thinking Hollywood idolizing idiots out with something. When a company is private, as Staples was when he gave his testimony, the stock is always going to be undervalued b/c value is based upon historical figures. When a company goes public, the IPO and stock value trades based on the future projections which are always rosier. Thats all he was saying. Gloria Allred (human skid mark that she is) knows this and is counting on your ignorance and stupidity to make this into a lie. I'm sure this is all falling on deaf ears though so you can all go back to watching Cribs and not being productive.

So, right, I get it. Mitt lied under oath to cheat the ex-wife of a business associate. Nothing wrong with lying under oath.

And I have information from the highest authority that in 1951 Mitt stole a pack of Juicy Fruit Chewing Gum. Listen- its to late. There is not one coherent person alive fron the coast of California to the shores of Maine that has not made up their mind as to how they will vote. We have been listening & watching this political extravaganza for over a year- Stop Main Stream Media while you still have a license. You have pointed enough fingers and in November Republicans will show you what return you will get on all your slanderous work!
