Skip to comments.DENIED! Allred Strikes Out, David Corn Weeps (UPDATE: Allred,"The Globe 'double-crossed' me!")

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.
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.
