Romney: I Don't Care If These Decades-Old Divorce Records Are Released

Honey Badger don't give a shit.

The full details of the case and the nature of the hearing could not be learned, but Robert Jones, an attorney at the Boston law firm of Ropes & Gray, who is representing Romney in this matter told TIME in a statement, “This is a decades-old divorce case in which Mitt Romney provided testimony as to the value of a company. He has no objection to letting the public see that testimony.”

So apparently it was Theory 2 -- a new (?) claim that Romney attempted to help his friend by claiming a company was worth less than it was.

As I said, given that that Maureen Sullivan Stemberg was paid with a lot of shares in the company, I'm not really sure how undervaluing the company helped Tom Stemberg. Whatever the company was worth, the Former Sullivan Stemberg was getting a pile of shares in it. If it was worth more, the same number of shares would equal more money; it if was worth less, the same number of shares would equal less money. In other words, the very fact she was being given shares meant that whatever the company was worthy, she was being given the same fraction of it. The settlement scaled with the value of the company, both up and down.

Thus begins Chapter 76 of our neverending revenge novel in progress, Tom Stemberg Should Give Me More Money Or I'll Be Out On The Street, Unable To Afford My $5,200 Apartment (As of 2006).

Gallup: The lead is down to 50-47, alas. But @conartcritic predicted this. He actually expected the drop to occur yesterday -- apparently Romney's numbers were padded by one or two huge days for him in the track, and those days have fallen off.

So, it's sad it's down to 3; but it is still three, and Romney still is at 50%, and Obama's at... well, look at that. 47%.

Per @conartcritic's analysis (which I guess was right, given that his prediction was proven true), Romney's Big Fat Day of Outlier Results was padding this for a week, and now we're down to something more accurate.
