    As far as I can tell, in this incident Whitman did nothing I disagree with, and several things I approve of.
    Education.

    "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"

After being fired, and apparently for political reasons, she went to Allred (who has a history of this) and filed a complaint.
    Allred is an opportunistic parasite IMHO. that she is involved in this case proves that this is the work of leftwing schemers

    Here's an idea - Let's get a long list of ALL Congress Persons and Senators and see who they have working as Nanny's Cooks, Gardeners, Housekeepers, Chauffers etc. Girl Friends,Boyfriends optional and get verification as to all these folks Legal status. It might be interesting.

    I think the agency did everything they could at the time. They obtained all required documents. If they had gone much further - keeping in mind that E-Verify was not yet available in California - I have little doubt they would have been acused of violating rights of the maid.

    23 an hour is what we pay our helpdesk technicians once they get 3 certifications. That's a pretty decent salary for a nanny, I think.

    my thoughts exactly. that wasn't bad for someone graduating from a top 10 law school who went to a market other than NYC or LA or Boston in the mid 80s

    It wasn't necessarily the agency's fault either, even if the woman was illegal. If she had paperwork that looked authentic and the agency reported the documents properly on an I9 form, that's all they were required to do.

    What's damning? This is damning.


    This to a woman who worked in her home for nine years and had the temerity to ask for help.

    **** you, Meg Whitman!
