Lou Dobbs, the CNN anchor who “resigned” last fall, was infamous for railing against anyone who dared hire illegal workers. Guess who was just discovered to be employing undocumented folks to tend the grounds at his mansions?
In 2006 Dobbs exclaimed “illegal employers who hire illegal aliens” should be charged with felonies.” Earlier this year he insisted “the illegal employer is the central issue in this entire mess” of immigration. Now employees are coming forward, through an investigation by The Nation, saying they worked for Dobbs — caring for his horses, his grass — while in the country illegally. Dobbs denies the allegations.
