Here, I'll spell it out nice and simple for you:
Meg Whitman isn't campaigning to prosecute only those who KNOWINGLY hiring illegals.
She wants to prosecute ANYONE that hires an illegal for ANY reason; whether they knew the person was illegal or not. You know, JUST LIKE HER.
NOW do you get it? She's a hypocrite, and an ignorant one, at that.
I'm afraid this isn't a thread about Jerry Brown. It's about Meg Whitman's employing an illegal immigrant for nine years and not taking ANY kind of responsibility for her actions. The fact that she's running on a platform of "BUST ILLEGAL EMPLOYERS" is simply the icing on the hypocrisy cake.
But Jerry Brown is exactly who this should be about. Unless you consider lying to the hispanic community to garner votes, and his utter hypocrisy to by ok? He, and his campaign including Gloria Allred opened this woman and her family up to a mess legally just so he could launch this negative attack for political gain....You condone that?
Are you saying Whitman wants them pay even if they did everything according to the law?
Seems to me any employer who had all the documents but was lied to by the employee could sue somebody over it if they got fined.
I believe the ones we want to prosecute are those who intentionally hire illegals for cheap labor.
Otherwise, hispanics would have a very difficult time finding any kind of work.

Yes, Employers who hired illegals knowingly should be prosecuted, but Meg Whitman did not know she hired an illegal and when Whitman found out, Whitman fired her. Whitman is not obligated to report on her, so she didn't.
Where did it ever say, promote for the common defence, and provide the general Welfare..... Please don't mix up the two....We the People of the United States,... provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare....

Until Ms. Whitman comes up with a legitimate explanation/solution, her campaign is doomed.
Here are her official comments about the matter:
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.
Do you see anything in there that gives an out to employers who find themselves in the same situation she's currently floundering around in?
Of course, the issue of her not firing the woman once questions were raised, and not turning the woman in as soon as she knew, are additional problems for her politically - problems she's either incapable of or unwilling to address.
It'll be her doom.
Not that I really care. IMO, she's a moron.
Oh it is part of the topic, a part you may wish would not be discussed but never the less it is a part....Once again, this is not a thread about Jerry Brown. Feel free to start one if the man is so important to you, otherwise, please stay on topic.
Imagine my relief to know that Brown, our current Attorney General, was not involved in this matter, even though it is well within the “October Surprise” time frame and even though Whitman is currently in a statistical dead heat with Brown for the governor’s office and even though Brown and Allred are close friends and associates and even though Allred is a “Super-delegate” for the Democratic Party in California and even though Allred has monetarily supported Brown in past campaigns…
