    As of now we only have the word of a known liar (the maid) that more than 1 letter was received. They only send them if the individual employs more than 9 people. Does Meg employ more than 9? Did they send the one by mistake and not send the others because she didn't employ 9? Did she only employ 9 individuals that one year? I obviously have no idea.

    My statement just states the fact that she didn't speak English well, and that would have caused Whitman to question her background. That in no way indicates that all people that don't speak English well are undocumented, but if they are legal Americans they usually have a good reason for not speaking English well. And considering Whitman's position on illegal hiring, there is no excuse for her to be complacent in her own situation.
    One of my neighbors/friends have a stong hispanic accent. Thank you for clarifying for me that I should be very suspicious of her immigration status. I hadn't realize it before. Maybe I should call INS on to check?

    I haven't seen any information where the IRS is backing up that she paid taxes.
    Think you may have misunderstood. I just meant that if she hadn't paid taxes, the IRS would be all over it by now. They are desperate for money, and would not be letting tax fraud go.



    Like I said, it might not matter that she was paying taxes. Where were the taxes going if the the name registered for the maid's SSN was different?
    I would assume they would be credited to the individual whose identity the maid stole.

    Also, another question, if Meg Whitman is so against illegals being hired, how come she didn't report her? All she did was fire her?
    I am against the hiring of illegal immigrants, and I would have done the same. Especially after 9 years. I am too nice, and I suspect that if Meg had turned her in, that would have been the attack (she's heartless). Kind of damned if you do damned if you don't situation.

    Point being, the fact that she paid taxes does not signify that she was legal,
    OK, let's stop right there. No one is saying that she is legal. However, there is solid evidence that Meg Whitman had every reason to believe she was legal because the woman did everything in her power to decieve her.

    Did Whitman report her when she found out that she was illegal? NO.

    So much for Whitman not being at fault.
    Actually, there's no requirement for her to report her as being illegal. Her only obligation was to terminate the employment until the woman showed legal documentation. So much for Whitman being at fault.

    Re: Meg Whitman Refutes Allegations by Former Housekeeper

    californians, who have never known such desperation in all the proud and progressive history of our once golden state, symbol of optimism, are NOT focused on w4 forms

    taxes, jobs, water, ab32, housing, borders, budgets---these are the overwhelming concerns of sober, mature californians

    if they're not speaking these things, they're certainly worrying about them, burdening their hearts

    whichever side dwells instead on such trivial gotcha---while simultaneously calling the lady running against it a whore---INSULTS almost every voter, precisely where she lives

    i'm stunned this needs to be pointed out

    that said, carry on

    exactly what did the whore do wrong, again?

    Well then, where is that IRS confirmation?

    I've hired housekeepers through agencies in California and after paying the one time agency fee, I paid the housekeeper in cash after each time she came. I suspect it was the same for Whitman.

    If the IRS isn't coming after her, then that's all the confirmation needed.

    And you can suspect all you want. When you have proof, get back to me. Thanks for confessing that you break the law freely with your housekeepers.

    When you have proof that Whitman didn't know her housekeeper was an illegal, then you get back to me. I paid the going wage for a housekeeper and I could've cared less if she illegal or legal and I suspect it was the same for Whitman just as it was for those who hire illegals to take of their kids, their yards, to work in construction, work in restaurants and hotels.

    That's called proving a negative and it is a logical fallacy. You think she DID know so the onus is on you to prove it.

    And those who knowingly hire illegals, including you, should be held accountable for their criminal activity.

    No, that isn't the only thing I'm upset about. I'm upset at all conservatives who keep screaming "illegals, deport them" and then come to the rescue of a Republican running for office, who hires an illegal, claims she didn't know, and then doesn't even report her. That is the height of hypocrisy.

    Tell us, will you be voting for Brown? Even after one of his staff members is heard on tape calling Whitman a "whore"?
    I'm not from California, but if I was I would certainly not vote for Whitman. I don't guess Brown is any more responsible for what his staff members say any more than Ron Paul is responsible for racist letters going out from his campaign headquarters, or at least that is what most cons say.

    Where's the money trail for Nicky's attorneys fees coming from? Who hired Alred? Who referred Nicky to her? Why won't Alred answer that?
    Would that change the fact that Whitman admits having her under her employ for 9 years? That is not the issue in question. The issue is that Whitman says one thing (she is against hiring illegals, but not when it comes to her).

    Are you satisified that Brown wants this campaign decided on this distraction instead of telling Cali voters what he will do if elected?
    I frankly don't care if Brown gets elected - I have my own issues with my governor being all about himself, typical Republican that he is.



    "I have been thinking that I would make a proposition to my Republican friends... that if they will stop telling lies about the Democrats, we will stop telling the truth about them."
