Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

If it was in a state that did not tolerate illegal immigration then yes Aldred would have royally screwed her client, she would have been the equivalent of a defense lawyer handing the prosecutor a confession tape, some videos and other evidence implicating her client. California loves illegals so they will not do anything and I seriously doubt the feds will do anything.By opening her mouth, and lying (according to Whitman) she has opened herself up to prosecution. Aldred must have offered her something really good.

"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"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
Why haven't we heard all this about Colin Powell who openly admitted to hiring illegals...In my book he should be prosecuted.
The problem is, of course, that one of Ms. Whitman's big rah-rah rallying cries is her determination that EMPLOYERS SHOULD BE PUNISHED/MADE LIABLE for hiring illegal immigrants.
From her website:
From a speech at UC Davis:Meg will oppose any attempt by the Legislature to weaken employer verification requirements.
From her campaign brochure:We do have to hold employers accountable for hiring only documented workers, and we do have to enforce that law.
At the Cal State Fresno debate:[To] institute a system where state and local law enforcement agencies conduct inspections of workplaces suspected of employing undocumented workers.
Of course, when challenged by Jerry Brown to own up to her own massive personal hypocrisy of being the employer of an illegal immigrant for NINE YEARS.... suddenly, her "As your governor I promise to go after people who employ illegals!" battle cry turns into:If we don't hold employers accountable, we will never get our arms around this [illegal immigration] problem.
"Jerry, you should be ashamed [putting] her deportation at risk."
As if, you know, she actually gave a **** about this woman.
and we can all see how much moonbeam and his all red surrogates care about naughty nicky who's been exposed as lying to her employers
I don't think it's very possible that she didn't know, or at least suspect.
sure, that's why meg paid social security and payroll taxes for 9 years
