The Problem With Meg Whitman’s Illegal House Help

Nicky Diaz, an undocumented Mexican immigrant who worked as Meg Whitman’s maid for nine years, has come forward to tell her story about STEALING AMERICAN JOBS — with Gloria Allred (a friend of opponent Jerry Brown) as her handler. She used fake docs to get the job, she says, but revealed her status to Whitman in 2009 in an attempt to get legal status; Whitman supposedly fired her instead. Responds Whitman’s campaign: “Nicky Diaz has a compelling story, and it is our hope that she will be treated with respect and dignity as this story unfolds.” Happy Novembering!
