    I watched her whole press conference. I believe her and I believe she thought of Nicki as part of the family. She was not required by law to turn her in. Nicki has children and a husband here. However, she absolutely had to fire her. She did everything right in my opinion. By opening her mouth, and lying (according to Whitman) she has opened herself up to prosecution. Aldred must have offered her something really good.

    Yeah, protection from prosecution should Brown win.

    Politicians lie,deceive, scam and cheat all the time. Yeah its possible She may have not known her employee was an illegal and was torn, its also possible that she did not care her employee was an illegal and did an Obama by throwing her under the bus when it became politically inconvenient to keep employing her.


    By opening her mouth, and lying (according to Whitman) she has opened herself up to prosecution. Aldred must have offered her something really good.
    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.

    "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"

    Considering Whitman was paying an above average wage for the services and was paying social security taxes, what do you think was the benefit for Meg to knowingly hire an illegal? It just doesn't make any sense. If I were going to hire an illegal, I would certainly not be paying Social Security, and would never pay a wage equivalent to what I would pay for a legitimate worker.

    Exactly...it doesn't make sense. Meg did nothing wrong and some want to make her the scape goat. It is the maid who forged documents and lied about her status.

    Why haven't we heard all this about Colin Powell who openly admitted to hiring illegals...In my book he should be prosecuted.

    get out the Nutella. This chick's toast.

    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:
    Meg will oppose any attempt by the Legislature to weaken employer verification requirements.
    From a speech at UC Davis:
    We do have to hold employers accountable for hiring only documented workers, and we do have to enforce that law.
    From her campaign brochure:
    [To] institute a system where state and local law enforcement agencies conduct inspections of workplaces suspected of employing undocumented workers.
    At the Cal State Fresno debate:
    If we don't hold employers accountable, we will never get our arms around this [illegal immigration] problem.
    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:

    "Jerry, you should be ashamed [putting] her deportation at risk."


    As if, you know, she actually gave a **** about this woman.

    I don't think it's very possible that she didn't know, or at least suspect.

    Good point and if she was being such a bitch why did she pay over $20 and hour when less than minimum wage is the norm for some who knowingly hire Illegal aliens.
