Skip to comments.DENIED! Allred Strikes Out, David Corn Weeps
Posted on 10/25/2012 8:18:07 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 - and 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.
You beat me to it! I was just going to post an article about this. The judge agreed to release the transcripts, but she didn’t lift the gag order! So All-Red, cannot make a circus out of this because her “client” still can’t talk about it publicly. Bwahahahahaha!
Too bad, so sad.
Feel free to use my RSS feed.
Like I said before, she is the anti Perry Mason...she never wins a case.
The Gloria Alred photo on Drudge, holding the sign “forward” ahhh...no so much!
This is NOT necessarily bad news for here
There was nothing in the transcripts except MitT Romney testifying to the value of Staples stock during a financial aspect of a divorce.
She can now say evil republicans CONSPIRED to prevert the release of DAMAGING information. What is Romney HIDING? Why wont he RELEASE HIS RECORDS? There must be something bad there or he would release it!!!
You should all know how democraps work by now....
Boy, these libs really don't understand the meaning of NO do they? Unfortunately they don't hear it enough.
The ex-wife just sounds pi$$ed because she didn’t manage her money well. And she’s nothing but sour grapes in her petty attacks on the Romneys.
Since the gag order was not lifted, will Romney be able to respond to/issue any statements, to the MSMs accusations and spin of his testimony?
GET BACK TO WORK! :)
Huh? The Romney transcripts ARE being released. There just isn't anything there. Allred was hoping to get the gag order removed so her client could gossip about Mitt to the media, and she failed because the liberal Boston Globe decided they didn't even want that.
Betcha it gets leaked anyway.
Allred’s worst nightmare - a microphone and nothing to say. And the election right around the corner.
Too bad, so sad.
She’ll just revert to old habits of rustling up a “devastated woman” who will make a false claim against Mitt for adultery.
***The ex-wife just sounds pi$$ed..***
Wonder who contacted whom first. Hmmmm - did Allred start digging for cases involving Romney -or- did the Missus contact her for $$$$ ....?
Sleaze and sleaze.
United States Naval Academy - Gangnam Style on Youtube! SUPPORT IT!
Her complaining will get reversed and people will want oshitheads records for college released. Good for the goose, good for the gander.
Enjoy Cali, you commie pinko AllRed.
There are MANY God fearing people who are on their knees asking God's intervention in matters such as this. Thank you GOD!
For those who think there’s nothing there — follow the “Yellow Brick Road” — follow it to Bain Capital, Howard Hughes, the CIA and the Mormon Mafia that controlled Hughes in his later years. And, by the way, it all starts with STAPLES. Where have all the ferrets gone?
And, of course, this does not stop the RATs from lying about the subject, now bolstered by the access to inside information giving a shiny patina of truth to their despicable lies.
If you want to know what pond scum looks down upon, her name is Gloria.
These are their American face men.
Gloria is accusing the Boston Globe of pulling a "double-cross" because she says the paper abandoned its motion to have the gag order against Maureen Sullivan Stemberg lifted.
And, on the other side here we have one of Staples founders ex-wives deeply involved in quasi-Soviet intrigue with close ties to people who know Fidel Castro and former Soviet espionage officers first hand.
So, where did you imagine some of the war was being fought?
Except that didn’t Romney’s lawyer say, “go ahead, there is nothing to it”? Seems to me the person standing in the way is THE JUDGE. And thank God for it.
I don’t know if the gag order pertains to Romney as well. I’m not a 100% sure about how that works. It may cover everybody that testified. Than again it may just cover the husband and wife.
Either way, the Allred circus has been derailed. It’s hard to have a press conference when your client can’t even open her mouth. That is her tactic. Go on TV with the supposed victim and work up a frenzy. The victim in this case isn’t supposed to be talking to anyone about what is going on so Allred can get her in trouble if she starts spouting off about things that her client said! She’s finished for now. I don’t doubt that she will try something else though. Her guy is in desperation mode right now.
The MSM can spew all that they want, people don’t give a crap right now. People are out of work, soldiers are still dying, the economy is in the crapper, an embassador and 3 other Americans are dead amidst a huge and obvious cover up! Do they think that anybody is going to feel broken hearted for some rich divorcee who feels like she didn’t get a big enough piece of the pie and sold her stocks too soon. As for Romney testifying that he thought his friend was a good father, so what. The ex has been alluding to her ex husband as being an abuser. Allred and her client were probably going for the “Romney defends wife beaters” angle. IF Romney had never been witness to something like that it’s their word against his. It’s all BS!
Romney allowed the transcripts to be released which bodes well for him. It’s hard to say that somebody is hiding something when they allow their testimony to be released. The judge decided not to lift the gag order. Allred screwed up because she decided to ride The Boston Globes coat tails instead of filing her own motion. Too bad!
Maybe she can get Jimmy Carter’s grandson to illegally tape the ex. The ends always justifies the means for this bunch.
Thanks for the link...I just thought it was pretty awesome.
I don’t doubt that she tried to find someone and came up empty. This was her best bet!
TiaS is correct about the Mormon mafia. They controlled access to Hughes up to his death. They kept Hughes drugged up and exploited their connections, just like how Boreman controlled access to Hitler. If you control access to the leader, it makes you very powerful as Speer and Goering found out.
David Corn, with his beady little eyes, always reminds me of the kid in school who’d eat paste.
You forgot the “globalists” and of course the Bilderberg Group. They are all part of the conspiracy.
Hughes did it to himself letting the Mormons get that close to him ~ then, of course, there are books about how they handled him after that.
After Hughes died, the autopsy found one or more broken off needles in his body. They certainly didn’t take good care of him, didn’t he die on the plane to the hospital?
I highly doubt that Romney will say anything about this case to anyone. My guess is that he will not comment on it. To much is at stake for him to say anything at all right now.
As for the lies that will come out, I doubt anybody will be influenced by it. Times are way too bad for people to waste their time worrying about scandals. People want to be able to put food on their tables and get back to work.
A bitter rich divorcee pissing and moaning about being short changed isn’t going to move anybody. Allred lost big today and she knows it. A newspaper asking for a gag order to be lifted is a lot different that a nosy no good lawyer looking to get it lifted. What reasoning can she use to get the gag order lifted. She has no valid reasons as to why she would need that done. She rode the coattails of another newspaper(Chicago Tribune maybe)to help expose Jack Ryan. Who was Jack Ryan’s opponent? Barack Hussein Obama that’s who. Typical Chicago tactics using the same dirt bags.
And Trump can say the exact same thing about Obama. Tit for tat. Stalemate!
A MIRROR is ALLRED’s worst nightmare!!
...and as ridiculous as trump appeared yesterday now we know why he did it. Cant release records for 5 million charity? What is being hid?
Romney doesn't care. Without the visual - the weeping client with Allred's arm draped around her making the rounds on The View, etc. - it will be a wasted effort.
Romney was not included in the original gag order -- that was an agreement between the principals as part of the settlement. He can say anything he wants to, but he'd be wise to ignore the whole thing, other than to say, "the transcript has been released and other than that, I don't want to comment about a private matter between two people".
I was one of them! :)
I thought that was Glomar Explorer — not Challenger. Was there another one?
"First word - starts with A... abandonment. actionable. ah, adultry."
