Skip to comments.Whitman says she fired illegal immigrant housekeeper
Posted on 09/29/2010 12:06:28 PM PDT by Justaham
In the midst of a heated governor's race, a high-profile Los Angeles attorney is calling a news conference today with a woman she described as Meg Whitman's housekeeper of nine years to describe her treatment inside the former eBay CEO's home.
But the Whitman campaign says the woman was fired nine years after she started working for Whitman because she revealed that she was an illegal immigrant.
Gloria Allred's firm declined to release any documents before the 11 a.m. news conference.
However, Allred's statement said the woman will tell "how she suffered as a longtime Latina household employee in Meg Whitman's home and why she is filing a claim against Ms. Whitman.''
Whitman, a Republican, is vying for the governor's seat against Democrat Jerry Brown.
Allred's brief statement said no interviews will be given by the housekeeper before the news conference.
The Whitman campaign held a 10:30 a.m. teleconference with reporters at which a lawyer and top adviser to the campaign said they had tentatively identified the woman as an illegal immigrant who had worked for Whitman and her husband for nine years, beginning in 2000.

Suffered for nine years...(roll eyes).
Hopefully ICE shows up to the news conference. This is how far things have fallen in this country when someone can blatantly hold a press conference with an illegal alien by her side and get away with it.
Let Senora Casakeeper go back to Mexico and file her “claim” from there.
Suffered my ass.
@ $23+ some dollars per hour, that’s some suffering.
Nine years?? She must have enjoyed her suffering.
Gloria Allred is a hard core Dem.
This vile media whore pulled the same PR stunt to attack Arnold in 2003 and to save her buddy Gray Davis in 2003.
Notice how that phony lawsuit and victum both went away after Davis LOST !
The woman should be disbarred.
This stunt will end up hurting the Democrats even more.
I agree. She’s a loudmouthed feminazi punk.
Hey, senorita, the exit is via the door. Why not use it?
This should be easy to debunk
show the fake docs from 2000
Glorai allred has jumped the shark
suffered for LONG years as a latina employee.
Wow, I need some popcorn for this one. What looked to be a Clintonesque last-minute hit job has turned out to be quite entertaining.
Didn’t suffer enough to quit, but pops up just before a tight election with some out of the blue allegations. More RAT dirty tricks.
Every other Monday, must be tough.
I’ve had it with these aholes.
If it isn't already clear where the democrats' sympathies lie it soon will be.
Then of course theres those republican employers of same who need to be dealt with.
Did Allred hold her presser?
Confident that the woman’s charges are bunk (and hope that the voters see them that way!), BUT,
I can’t help but think that Whitman is mildly culpable for suspecting that her longtime housekeeper was an illegal — and for ONLY bothering to find out for sure, and firing her, once she (Whitman) decided to run for office.
Every now and then she feels the need for some face time on all the cable news shows. I bet she will be on Greta.
Not true. When Meg hired her she presented a drivers license as proof of citizenship (which is was then) and told the family and the hiring agency she was legal.
Where can I see that?
Well, that’s good, if it checks out on Meg’s side.
And who knows? Maybe this obvious late-game smear attempt will backfire. (Not that I am any great Whitman fan.)
"Noooo... Sra. Allred no esta aqui."
So *that's* what a wise Latina looks like.
Gloria Allred is nothing but a camera whore. She smears with impunity and one of these days, I hope I hope, she’s going to target someone who kicks her wide-load butt from San Francisco to Los Angeles and gets her law license yanked in the process.
Where are you guys finding the $23.00 figure?
These smear merchants are running out of ideas.
How much you want to bet she (the casa keeper) shows up with papers back dated to refute Whittman’s claims?
We are aren’t living in the USA anymore. The rule of law has taken a hike and ignores the commie left.
Thanks, and that is a pretty decent wage.
Too bad we can’t fire the illegal Obummer.
