Staples Divorce Case: Mitt Romney Involvement, "Juicy Information" Alleged

by at . Comments

Mitt Romney was reportedly involved in the messy divorce of one of his key supporters, and the Boston Globe is going to court in a bid to unseal its case file.

The divorce was between Staples co-founder Tom Stemberg and his first wife, Maureen. The legal battle lasted for years and was very far from amicable.

Romney gave both a deposition and testified in the trial ... and the Globe got a tip that there was "juicy information about Romney" in the sealed documents.

Any guesses on who gave that tip?

Looks like this is Gloria Allred's October Surprise. The attorney has a client who is somehow involved in the case and who wants to go on the record ... what timing.

TMZ says Allred represents someone connected with the divorce, presumably Maureen. If a judge lifts the gag order, she could freely talk about ... whatever happened.

Less than two weeks before the election. Wild.

Romney, Stemberg and Maureen were all served papers by the Globe notifying them that the paper was trying to unseal the case and lift the gag order.

Stemberg and Romney go way back. Bain Capital helped launch Staples - lauded as a huge success for Romney's company - and Mitt sat on its board for years.

The Globe will ask a judge to unseal Romney's testimony and lift the gag order. Stemberg's lawyers have vowed to oppose the motion; Romney's have not responded.

As for what the case involves, Gloria's not saying, but the court in question handles sensitive family law matters, including those involving high profile people.

Between this and Donald Trump's Obama bombshell, it's going to be an eventful week.
