Lawyer Gloria Allred is trying to unseal court documents rumored to contain juicy information about GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, some of which TMZ.com leaked today.
According to TMZ.com, Staples' founder Tom Stemberg's ex-wife Maureen Stemberg claimed that GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney allegedly lied under oath while testifying in their divorce.
Romney reportedly gave a deposition and testified during the trial that Staples' stock was "overvalued" and added "I didn't place a great deal of credibility in the forecast of the company's future."
Today, Staples is one of the success stories that Romney often cites as proof that he knows how to create jobs.
TMZ.com reports that weeks after the divorce hearing ended, Romney and Tom Stemberg cashed in their Staples stock in for a fortune.
Maureen Stemberg, who suffered from MS and had multiple incidents of cancer, claims that years later her health insurance was cancelled by her ex-husband, who was working as a chief health care adviser for then-Governor Mitt Romney.
Tom Stemberg also got custody of the couple's one child after making abuse allegations against Maureen, who eventually lost her home. However, later, in the 1990s, Tom sent his son a letter saying that because of the divorce "it will not be possible for you to be a part of our family for the foreseeable future."
