Meg vs. The Maid

I just got though reading about Meg Whitman’s alleged "illegal alien maid" problem and I have to say something doesn’t pass the smell test.  

The maid is basically claiming that work at Meg’s was a living hell (a $23 per hour living hell) and that Whitman knew she was illegal. The maid also claims she was kicked to the curb last year when Whitman decided to run for governor. Whitman has fired back saying the maid is “full of it” and has released the maid’s application and documentation (SS card and Calif driver’s license).

The maid’s (Nicky Diaz Santillan) story reads like it was written for maximum effect. Even the sob story about the extra chores she had to do. 

Never mind that on her application the extra chores she complains about are checked as things she would do.

The only part in the maid’s story I can take seriously is the notification from Social Security back in 2003 saying there was a problem with her Social Security number.  Should proof of this come out, bye-bye Meg Whitman.  Without it, I would have to say the whole thing is manufactured for political reasons.

The guys at Hillbuzz have seen this ploy before:
[…]Because what the Democrats are doing to Meg Whitman in California today is exactly what Obama did to Republican candidate Jack Ryan in 2004…manufacturing a scandal so that Republicans will abandon a candidate and allow a Democrat to walk away with an election in a cake walk…in election that Democrat would have actually lost.
Gloria Allred is having a press conference today with a Mexican maid who’s claiming she was abused by Meg Whitman.  The goal for Democrats here is two-fold:
(1) to alienate Hispanic voters from the Republicans
(2) to portray Whitman as a Leona Helmsley-grade wealthy tyrant that’s unrelatable to voters suffering financial problems
Democrats excel at the politics of personal destruction because this is the only thing they know.
I could not agree more. Just read Santillan's tear jerker testimony and it sure enough fits the Democrats two goals perfectly. 
Until proof comes out showing Whitman received and then ignored Social Security's letters, I am taking Ms. Santillan’ story with a very huge grain of salt.

Apparently the letter only goes to the employer if they have more than 10 instances of bad numbers. If it is just one the letter goes to the employee. So it looks like Whitman is in the clear. That law went into effect in 2002.

Anytime someone has Allred as an attorney you have to question it. She is nothing more than a publicity whore.

Another thing that makes no sense is if this is how she felt she should have come forward as soon as she announced her candidacy. Why wait 14 months? Someone tracked this woman down.

Also, did Allred explain to this woman she committed fraud? She falsified social security documents. Isn't that a felony?

There is a lesson to be learned. If you want to enter public life sometime in your lifetime - don't hire a hispanic person, because there is a possibility that they're in the US illegally and have provided you with fraudulent documentation.

Is anybody moving to DEPORT the maid?

At my part time job I get like 14 bucks an hour.

If she truly hated it, why did she stayed for 9 years? Did you know of anyone liking their job so much they stayed for
9 years???

This whole affair is as fake as porn stars boobs.

Meg, Meg, Meg, where do I start, you have reportedly spent $119 million of your own money to get elected Governor but you personally went out, interviewed and hire yourself a 15 hour a week maid/ housekeeper instead of hiring a service like Maid Brigade, Merry Maids, ServiceMaster Clean, talk about being a cheap bastard. But it does not stop there, after she worked for you for nine years you would not help her in getting legalized? Wow, what a WITCH, of course I meant it with a “B”.

But your comments on holding employers accountable for hiring undocumented workers real takes the cake, I assume you exempt yourself and your husband, or will you be turning yourself in.

Meg on holding employers accountable:

Meg you think you can buy the election, but what puzzles many is if you real cared and loved California then why not do your civic duty and vote, seems more rhetoric than anything else. In good times we might give you a try but not in our disaster mode that we find ourselves in after that so-called outsider Independent Republican, named Arnold Schwarzenegger (sold to us by radio personalities John and Ken), ruined our state, yah we will trust another one of you liars, think not. You can’t buy everything! What a waste of money!

Montana, I suggest you return to the state after which you are named. We have enough liberal kool-aid drinkers here in our bankrupt state of California.
