TMZ: Boston Globe, Gloria Allred Trying to Unseal Court Records In Someone Else's Divorce; Got Tip Record Contains "Juicy Information" About Romney

Unless Romney was boinking the woman -- which seems unlikely -- I don't know what they hope to get out of this.

Mitt Romney was heavily involved in the extremely messy divorce of one of his key supporters ... and the Boston Globe is going to court first thing Wednesday morning in an attempt to unseal the court file as well as lift a gag order ... TMZ has learned.The divorce was between Staples co-founder Tom Stemberg and his first wife Maureen. We're told the divorce battle lasted for years and was extremely ugly.Sources tell us Romney gave both a deposition in the divorce and testified in the trial. According to our sources, the Boston Globe got a tip that there was "juicy information about Romney" in the sealed documents.

TMZ believes Gloria Allred represents Maureen, but they haven't confirmed it.

My only speculation, apart from the Boink Scenario which seems silly, is that Maureen believes Romney was evasive in defending his friend/not giving up dirt on him.

This would be a fitting cap to Obama's political career -- going out the same way he got in. Unsealing divorce records.

That observation is from Allah, who I wanted to link anyway because of the Trump Situation. Apparently Trump is saying it's not the coke claim, and the NYPost's Page 6 hears it's also not the alleged divorce papers.

Here's Trump, promoting it in his understated manner:

“I have something very, very big concerning the President of the United States,” Trump said. “[It is] large – bordering on gigantic… “It’s all in one. Everything. It’s very big — bigger than anybody would know.”

I don't know what it could be, except for a birther thing or one of the strands of that. College paid for by some unsavory individual? Maybe something like that?

I don't know.

Trump also says, however, that it could "possibly" affect the election. I don't get that. If it's gigantic, presumably it would affect the election. Maybe he's just being coy, or maybe he's really not sure whether it would have a big impact or not.

Given the Globe's and Allred's games, I don't mind if he dishes dirt. Turnabout is fair play. I just hope it's not so dumb it backfires.

Trump's a smart guy. Most of the time. Sometimes....

And speaking of gigantic, Romney's crowd at Red Rock, Colorado was just that.

Another picture here.

Joe Biden just sneered derisively, "Oh, so you're Bono now, huh?"

Apparently the center holds 20,000 people (though another report says 10,000) and thousands more were turned away, as it was over capacity.

So, that's nice, at least.

Sorry about stamping on DRI's ONT but a lot of late news tonight.
