Did Meg outsource another American job?

Did Meg outsource another American job?

It appears from reports that she employed an undocumented worker in her home for nine years.

I guess that's better than shipping off jobs to India and other countries. Or maybe better than using visas to hire cheaper engineers from overseas instead of qualified American workers.

But the claims of abuse line up with reports of the settlement for assault against an ebay employee, Young Mi Kim:

She's got her "spine of steel" when she signs someone's paycheck. One wonders how she thinks she's going to get 'er done when it's an elected official she wants to shove.

Didn't work well for another bully by the name of Arnold.

Oh, dear, it appears that Meg thinks notices from the IRS and Social Security don't apply to her, as an employer of illegals.

"...added that Whitman ignored correspondence sent to her home from the Social Security Administration in 2003. The letter informed her that Diaz' Social Security number did not match her name - a red flag for an undocumented worker.

The letter asked Whitman to show that Diaz had proper documentation, Allred said, and there is no record that Whitman had responded."

As a local resident buying, er, running for governor, isn't this news?

Think if this was happening to Jerry, then Meg's paid staff would be all over it?

From what I know as much as I like Meg she has never even been to a council meeting in her own town. Atherton has lots of issues. Why not clean up her own backyard?

Seems like Californians don't like Meg's billion dollar tax cut, in times of recession.

And this is before the 9 yr employment of an illegal came to light.

"In the fight for governor, the poll indicates that 52 percent of likely voters back California Attorney General and former Gov. Jerry Brown, the Democratic nominee, with 43 percent supporting Meg Whitman...

The USC/Los Angeles Times survey taken last week indicated Brown held a five-point advantage over Whitman, with the Field Poll done at the same time showing the candidates tied at 41 percent.

According to the CNN/Time poll, Brown leads Whitman 52 to 39 percent among a larger sampling of registered voters.....

"Virtually all of Brown's additional support comes from voters who attended college," Holland noted. "That helps to neutralize the 13-point advantage among independents that Whitman currently has.""

More shoes drop:

"Whitman has denied receiving such a letter, saying she was stunned when Santillan confessed to her that she was undocumented after nine years of working for the Whitman family.

But the copy of the April 22, 2003, letter produced by Allred had a handwritten note on it. It said, "Nicky please check this. Thanks." Diaz Santillan claims the handwriting is that of Whitman's husband, Griff Harsh."

More shoes to come?

Oh. Boy.

Someone has to fall on the grenade after everyone denied the letter existed, and poof, up pops the letter with hubby's notes on it.

And the winner is: the good Doctor!

"Neither Meg nor I believed there was a problem with Nicky's legal status and I certainly don't recall ever discussing it with my wife, nor did I ever show her any letter about it."

Way to take one for the team!
