    I think you misunderstood the statement. SSA only sends the letter if the employer has had more than 10 people whose SSNs and names did not match. It is possible that Whitman has had other illegals working for her.

    Agency spokesman Mark Lassiter said that from 2003-2006 an employer had to have more than 10 employees whose Social Security numbers and names did not match to receive a warning letter. It was not immediately clear how many domestic employees Whitman had during that time.

    "An employer with one or two employees in 2003 to 2006 would not have gotten an employer ... letter," Lassiter said.


    And, it appears that the liar is not Nicky but Whitman and her husband. The letter that they claim they never saw, apparently was partially filled out and it appears to be Whitman's husband's handwriting.

    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?
    Having a strong spanish accent is not the same as not being able to speak English fluently. But if you are suspicious and you are an advocate of deporting all illegals, I'm surprised you haven't done it already.


    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.
    If you are being paid under the table, the IRS has no way of knowing you are working and not paying taxes. Your statement sound as if you were sure that the IRS had verified that taxes were paid.

    I would assume they would be credited to the individual whose identity the maid stole.
    Well, then in that case, the maid would not have taxes credited to her name.

    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.
    After reading some of the posts from conservatives who hate illegals and want to deport them, call them names and accuse them of taking their benefits and jobs, and want to deny their children born here their US citizenship all of a sudden turn nice and wouldn't report her. What a crock.

    Exactly, so why would you assume that because she paid taxes that Whitman thought she was legal? (If she even paid taxes.)

    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.
    Yeah sure, like the maid forced Whitman's husband, Dr Harsh to partially fill the form out and then forget about it?

    But Allred produced a copy of the letter Thursday that she says shows Whitman's husband partially filled it out. If true, that would mean Whitman and her husband were aware of the immigration problem years ago.

    "At bottom of letter, "Dr. Harsh has written: 'Nicky, please check this. Thanks,'" Allred said, adding that the housekeeper recognized the handwriting as belonging to Whitman's husband.

    Not as a regular citizen. But as a Republican candidate for Governor, vocal about trying to fix the immigration problem, getting tough on employers that hire illegals, that would have made more sense. Instead, she has made herself out to be a hypocrite. Apparently she doesn't feel that her rules apply to her also.

    The Whitman story also seems to point to a larger Republican hypocrisy on immigration. Republicans have generally favored a “get tough” policy on undocumented immigrants, but have not been as vociferous in their pursuit of the people who employ undocumented immigrants. Voters will often vote for a candidate they may disagree with, but they will rarely vote for candidate who hypocritically disagrees with himself.

    Speak out of both sides of her mouth. She's a hypocrite like most conservatives who call illegals names, want them all deported and then claim to go soft because they feel sorry for them! Yeah, right!

    But it also shows that Whitman's most severe sanctions would be reserved for employers who "knowingly" hire illegal immigrant labor – something she claims she did not do.
    On the John and Ken Show in Los Angeles last month, Whitman reiterated her view that employers found to hire illegal immigrants should face sanctions. The first offense, she said, should be a fine:
    First what you’ve got to do is you’ve got to tell people you’re going to hold them accountable.
    Then there needs to be a system that they can verify, and then you are going to have a three-strike program, and I’ve outlined it very clearly. First strike if you have found to hire illegal immigrants you are going to have to pay a fine. Second strike you’re going to have to pay a fine, you may lose your business license for a period of time. Third you’re going to pay a fine and you are going to lose your business license for a permanent amount of time.
    It's a view she's repeated a number of times, also bringing up the economic understanding that as long as incentives (read: good jobs) exist, illegal immigrants will continue to seek opportunities in the United States.

    Let's make sure she is held accountable.

    The IRS doesn't have a crystal ball to tell them someone is working and getting paid under the table. That is probably what Whitman has done, shame on Whitman, she's the one with the education, the one with the money, the one who believes in getting tough with employers who hire illegals. Maybe you are not familiar with the tactics of unscrupulous people, like Whitman.

    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.
    It's more than a suspicion, they have disclosed that the SSA letter has Whitman's husband's handwriting - a note she wrote to Nicky to handle the letter. Apparently he didn't want to be bothered.

    Aha! The truth comes out. Republicans who want tougher laws on immigration want those who knowingly hire illegals to be held accountable, unless they are Republicans running for office!

    Wow reading tea leaves and making wildly nonsensical, assumptions to fit your own bias.

    Good work there. I love how your type does this.

    That's not really a good measure of anything. Considering how understaffed the IRS is (consider the hundreds of billions in unpaid taxes every year) them not going after what amounts to as a small potato really doesn't mean anything.

    Not nonsensical assumptions - that is what Whitman has claimed.

    Good work there. I love how your type does this.
    Yeah, if my type were defending one of their own, your type would be saying the opposite. You all need to own up to what you claim! You either want tougher immigration laws, or you just want to say you want tougher immigration laws.

    Actually, Mertex has presented a very well reasoned arguement backed up with credible evidence that not one of you cons have been able to refute with anything but your usual dribble.

    Kudos Mertex, very impressive work.
