Horrible. Far Left Fabricates Maid Sob Story to Smear Meg Whitman
Horrible. The democratic-media complex today, led by ABC News and the LA Times, smeared Republican Gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman with a disgusting and dishonest sob story.
Unfortunately for the far left, Meg Whitman kept the maid’s application from 2000 where she claimed she would work in the US legally.
ABC News led the smear:
California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman today found herself battling allegations that she knowingly employed an undocumented immigrant housekeeper, failed to pay a portion of her wages and then fired her in an act of political damage control.
The charges come a little over a month before the November election.
At a news conference in Los Angeles on Wednesday organized by celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred, Whitman’s former housekeeper and nanny, Nicky Diaz, tearfully recounted how in June 2009 she was suddenly terminated by Whitman and her husband, Griffith Harsh, after she said she asked the couple for legal help to obtain U.S. citizenship. Allred also alleged that Whitman became aware of Diaz’s undocumented status years earlier, but took no action.
But, of course, the charge against Whitman was completely fabricated.
Meg Whitman produced documents that prove that this maid lied on her application for employment years earlier.
TMZ.com has copies of the documents.
The documents, which Whitman claims Nicky filled out and signed back in 2000 during her application for employment, appear to show that the maid stated under the penalty of perjury that she was a “lawful permanent resident” of the United States.
Whitman also claims Nicky provided her with a social security card and valid California Driver’s License with her employment application … which Meg kept and has now handed over to TMZ.
Whitman has also issued a statement on the matter, saying … “After 9 years of faithful service, Nicky came to us in June 2009 and confessed that she was an illegal worker.” Whitman continues, “Nicky has falsified the hiring documents and personal information she provided to the employment agency that brought her to us in 2000.”
And, Whitman continues, “I believe Nicky is being manipulated by Gloria Allred for political and financial purposes during the last few weeks of a hotly contested election.”
