    Do you have any clue what she was paying her?

    Then it is just an excuse to turn a blind eye and nothing more,especially in a state such as California that is practically illegal alien capital of the country and most notorious for tossing pro-illegal salad. This is why I am beginning to think Witman kept the housekeeper until it became politically inconvenient to keep employing her and then did an Obama and threw her under the bus. Documents can be forged, which is why you verify if they are real.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Again, Turtledude argued that Whitman was being generous like she was doing something out of the ordinary. That's simply ridiculous. Throwing out $23/h in California as an argument for generosity is quite dishonest.

    Read the thread instead of inserting yourself into it? K thanks. We've already gone over this point.

    Hint: 23/h in California for having somebody clean your house? Quite cheap.

    Umm, as I recall, the argument from you was that Whitman hired an illegal so that she can get off by paying a low wage. The one problem with that argument, is that it's not supported by the facts. She was right in the ballpark of the average wage for that job according to the unverified link you provided.

    Edit: BTW, I think that link you provided might be a bit off.

    If she wanted cheap labor above all else, she could have hired an illegal for around $10/hr. That's what it costs in Manhattan, and I would be astonished if it cost more in CA.

    I believe her about hiring through an agency, that's very common.

    To me, this reads like dirty politics from the Brown side. That guy is old school sacramento politics.

    Re: Meg Whitman Refutes Allegations by Former Housekeeper

    Look here Niky's Drivers License appeared to be real but it was obtained with the use of a phony Social Security Number on a forged card. That is three Felonies right there.

    Niki also signed an affidavit under penalty of perjury that she was here legally.

    That comes to a total of 4 Felonies that Gloria Alwet has opened Niky up to along with deportation. That means Gloria Alwet is in violation of the code of ethics or what ever it is called for lawyers that says you never open your client up to more charges than have already come to light.

    Gloria then knowingly filed a phony, making it frivolous Ccase against Meg, for strictly political gain in conjunction with the Brown Campaign.

    She went on TV and knowingly committing slander against Meg Whitman opening herself up to a multimillion dollar law suit by Meg who can afford to take Alwet to the cleaners.

    Now when it comes to doing your due diligence on the part of Meg Whitman is a simple as doing what she did, by insuring that the agency had all the right signed paperwork and reviewing said papers and looking at the Social Security Card.

    Having personally been responsible as an executive Manager in four States over the course of of more than 35 years for hiring and the personnel files of many, many hundreds of employees from entry level to upper mid-managers. I would accept the papers presented as enough proof to hire anyone.

    This all makes the Story and statements and explanations that Dr. Griff Harsh and Meg WHitman told about their handling of the Notice from the S.S.Administration 100% plausible.

    It is clear this is all about support for Brown and as i always say "IF IT'S BROWN FLUSH IT DOWN BEFORE IT STINKS UP THE PLACE, AGAIN"

    Nope, sorry Hatuey, the only one being dishonest in this line you are taking is you. According to payscale.com, a research company that puts out average pays, as well as high pay for the job says that a housekeeper in LA earns between $8.65 - $16.54
    in San Diego it's $9.72 - $18.08
    And in Vegas it's $7.75 - $13.65
    http://www.payscale.com/research/US/...er/Hourly_Rate

    Care to restate you claim that her pay was in the normal range?

    She was not a nanny. She was a housekeeper who worked 15 hrs a wk. (she also was asked sometimes to run erronds or drop kids at school)
    Whitman said she didn't always work 15 hrs but got paid for it. Nicki said she sometimes worked more than 15 and only got paid for 15. Whitman has offered to take a lie detector test about anything she said in her press conference.
    When Whitman let her go she didn't turn her into ICE even though she had been lied to for 9yrs.
    Now she may be in big trouble for fake documents on top of being an illegal through no fault of Whitmans.
    This is all just really dirty politics. It's not going to matter that she is totally innocent, some people will just see the headlines and presume she's guilty.
