Skip to comments.DENIED! Allred Strikes Out, David Corn Weeps (UPDATE: Allred,"The Globe 'double-crossed' me!")
Posted on 10/25/2012 10:01:35 AM PDT by jmstein7
After a humiliating performance in court, over two days, it looks like Gloria Allred will leave Massachusetts without a bimbo to trot around this time.
Allred came to court to get the gag order on her client, the wife of the founder of Staples, lifted. The gag order prevents her client from discussing the details of her divorce in the early 90s, where Mitt Romney offered testimony in support of the husband. Allred left court empty handed.
Over Allred's pathetic pleas, the attorney from the Boston Globe agreed to Staple's stipulation settling the matter - leaving the gag order intact. At one point, Allred was actually heard begging the Boston Globe attorney to turn down the offer, yelling "please!" The answer? No. Thus the stipulation was signed, and Allred's client was silenced. In effect, the Boston Globe threw Allred under the bus.
The angst on the radical left was immediately evident. David Corn, of Mother Jones, desperately tweeted "How did Allred let that happen? Was there a screw-up?"
In the end, Allred ended up with nothing more than a 20 year old piece of paper and nobody to talk about it.
UPDATE: Allred now claims that the Boston Globe "double-crossed" her.
Coming Sunday in the Boston Globe: Part One of a twenty page expose on Supah Lawyah Gloria Allred...
I think Allred didn’t realize who she was messing with this time.
I’m sure there’s some cement shoes that are just the right size for Allred somewhere to assist her in her descent back to Hell.
Sheesh, Gloria. I just hate it when things don’t go your way, ya know? I guess what happens in Massachusetts stays in Massachusetts...as usual?
I won’t lie. As I posted in another thread or two on the subject, I was pretty worried about this. It looked like a big setup to do only one thing, and obviously that was to hurt Mitt Romney. Fortunately, it looks like there may have been a few less people in on it than I thought, and for that I am very happy.
David Corn is an idiot. He should stick to the only job he is good at, especially this time of year, and that’s posing on the box of Frankenberry cereal.
Gloria is getting the whip from President Empty Chair now,,”GLORIA! You have 11 days to come up with something for me. DO IT!!”
I am sure Gloria has sniffed under every rock trying to find some past employee of the Romney’s who would be happy to be paid to say “Mr Romney” made me “uncomfortable.”
Too bad the current bimbo didn’t work out. I think it’s hilarious in so many ways. The hateful ex gets slapped AGAIN! Now, will she in turn sue Gloria like she did her previous attorney?
Pass the popcorn PLEASE?!
Thank you Lord for watching over this candidate and this country.
Gonna party like it's November 7, 2012!
Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving “attorney” -— take that Ms. Allred.
Last night Great talked to Trump and asked him about Allred. He said she was a “terrible” lawyer and totally without credibility, a “third rate lawyer”.
boo friggin' hoo
It’s always entertaining to watch a lib whine and moan when they don’t get their way.
Publicity whore FAIL
The problem for AllRed climbing to the top of her garbage heap is that every single rung of the ladder she stepped on will hurt like a bitch as she falls back down, taking each one in the posterior as she goes.
I'd love to see the actual link to that statement and send it to Breitbart, etc. If she really said that, she just admitted that she and the Globe were in cahoots all along. After all, you can't have a double cross without a deal already in place.
(And, yes, I realize it was obvious they were in cahoots. However, having that admission would be great. It's always better to be able to prove what you know.)
Find the video... she said it in her presser after the hearing.
“what happens in Massachusetts stays in Massachusetts...as usual” LOL!! Love it! :-D
lol....Mrs. McSkankybitch gets smacked down.
I can’t stand that hag: she’s exactly like my step-mother.
Enjoy that sweet delicious taste of FAIL, bitch!!!!
The worst part of having to listen to this bitch is she thinks she is relevant. She is NOTHING BUT A GLORIFIED AMBULANCE CHASER. In her warped liberal mind she thinks she sways elections for the democrats. What she did to Whitman in the governor race in California was nothing. The socialist democratic drones far outnumber the republicans. Whitman was losing anyway.
I’m confused. Daily Mail Online says the papers will be released.

The Daily Mail is correct. The judge refused to lift the gag order, so Allred’s client doesn’t get to speak, but the judge did grant the Boston Globe request to unseal the trial transcript. Now the Globe will comb through it and print whatever they can find that puts Romney in a bad light. Most likely, he low-balled the possible value of Staples, which had not then gone public, arguably depriving the wife of a “fair share” in what later became riches. The problem is that the wife was given hundreds of thousands of shares, which she sold for peanuts before the IPO. That was her (and her financial advisors’ call). If she set too much weight on Romney’s opinion as stated in court, that’s too bad, but it shouldn’t be Romney’s problem. Most start-ups do not pan out, and Romney may have been just speaking the truth as he saw it at the time.
Romney is playing Brer Rabbit here. What a fantastic opportunity. The Sullivan woman comes out looking like a gold digging malcontent, Allred looks like a chump, Mitt gets a few days to talk about the Staples success story, and the Obama campaign sinks deeper in desperation.
I love the smell of liberal outrage in the morning!
Yup....Mitt is no McCain thank God. Just watched a Romney TV ad here and it shows Obama bowing like a dog to some third-world nothing. Great ad. Makes Obama look like a complete fool.
Donald Trump: I know Gloria Allred. Shes a terrible lawyer, third rate stricty. And, frankly, anything shes involved with doesnt usually work out well.
