    Gloria Allred has an “October surprise” for Mitt Romney. Her latest client, the ex-wife of Staples founder Tom Stemberg, is ready and willing to reveal to the public a testimony Mitt Romney gave on behalf of her husband during their 1990s divorce trial. Romney’s Bain Capital was an early investor in Staples and frequently touts the company’s success as an example of Mitt’s leadership skills. It’s unclear what Allred and the former Mrs. Stemberg are trying to accomplish by unsealing this testimony, as it reportedly just includes Romney vouching for his former colleague’s abilities as a father. Regardless, the Romney camp doesn't seem to care, as one of his lawyers told Time magazine: “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.”
