She suffered so much she had to be a long-time employee of the billionaire—until the ‘Rats came along and made her ‘story’ more valuable.

Let’s see—what could these ‘explosive’ allegations be?

Whitman only allowed her one square of toilet paper per visit? She made her do the windows?

Surely people will see this crap for what it is.

That housekeeper waits until RIGHT NOW to come forward with this BS. Hiring that dammed Gloria Aldred just pegs the BS meter.

If the woman was an illegal alien, it’s not going to look good for Whitman.

If the woman was here legally and agreed to work for the wages offered, so what?

This should be interesting.

I’m not a big Whitman fan, but if this is a case of trumped up slanderous charges, I hope the individual is cut off at the knees.

Whitman probably has friends who are far-Leftwingtards and will be aghast to find them turning on her.

And her Latina housemaid? Here's a lesson to all the wealthy people in California, your cheap lawnboys and below market rate bedwarmers didn't really like you anyway, so there.

I seem to recall they pulled this on someone a few election cycles back. If memory serves it made little or no impact precisely because the servant woman was a long time employee.

IMHO the dem’s “politics of personal destruction” ploy has worn out its welcome. All Whitman has to say is that when she employed this woman America was a free country. She was free to leave at any time. There is no credible comeback to that response.

Media outlets should, I say SHOULD, be labeling these kind of political tactics, this close to an election, as nothing more than dirty politics, but they won’t... with glee they will, along with the Demoncrats, say, “a-ha, a-ha, see, see, corrupt republican...” And they wonder why they loose viewership. Why advertisers continue to pour money down the msm rat-hole is the real quandary.

Jerry Brown vaporized $600 million dollars on a geo-thermal boondoggle in the 70s even after being warned that it wouldn't work. If anyone could be held responsible for beginning the decline in the once golden state, it's him.

Of course, the idiot lefties want to make sure their pensions and aren't interrupted and good ole Moonbean will make sure the taxpayers keep paying till we're all dead and broke.

But in California, we like to keep the hired help happy. That's what matters.

Do we smell the stench of of a leftist publicity whore, right up Gloria Allred's alley?

Working for the billionaire was a terrible underpaid misery, but she stayed there for years and years? Yeah right....

California? Hell, it will work nationwide. The MSM will pound this and the other coming “scandals” into the mushy independents minds and they will vote dim. The MSM is the greatest threat there is to our great country, yet we barely address it here. Sure we complain about it but we never come up with a way to destroy or even just neutralize the MSM. Any thoughts?

“Allred is nothing more than an inconsequential publicity whore.”

Yeppers, and she’ll be all over CNN, MSNBC, GMA, Today and probably FNC and any other station she can get her mug on. Only to say something like, my client, who was extremely hard working, has a legtimate claim about how she was poorly treated and underpaid, blah, blah, blah, but I can’t get into the details right now. You’ll see more about them when we file the formal complaint. Oh, and Ms Whitman kicked her dog, too.

This is why the Republican candidates should have been talking about the coming October Surprises in early September - so at least the voters would be thinking about the smears and considering them for what they were. But that would require a bit of strategy and leadership from the Republican candidates.

Sorry, I’m pulling for the Democrats to sweep California’s state government. California is going to fall apart anyway. It’s better that the Democrats get the blame.

California exists for one reason: to entertain the rest of the country. Who better for that than Jerry Brown?

Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!
