Meg Whitman's Housekeeper -- 'Explosive' Allegations

9/29/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0929_pete_wilson_thumb_Getty_100UPDATE:  Meg Whitman's campaign chairman, former California Governor Pete Wilson, tells TMZ he is unaware of any claim by Whitman's former housekeeper, but, "The timing of this is highly suspect."

The former housekeeper for Meg Whitman -- the Republican candidate for Governor of California -- is about to make "controversial and explosive allegations about her former employer," TMZ has learned.


Whitman housekeeper.
We're told the housekeeper has lawyered up with none other than Gloria Allred. The housekeeper and Allred will hold a news conference today in Gloria's office at 11 AM PT, "to tell how she suffered as a long-time, Latina household employee in Meg Whitman's home."  

We're told the housekeeper will be filing a legal claim against Ms. Whitman.

From what we're hearing, the disclosures could have a significant impact on the campaign and possibly the election.

We will, of course, live stream the news conference.  It doesn't matter where you live -- Don't miss this one.

I was born and raised in California.

Show me one CA resident WHO HAS NOT paid cash for Mexican labor and I will show you a liar.

I live in the midwest now and let me tell you - I would give ANYTHING for some good old high quality MEXICAN LABOR anyday of the week and I would gladly pay $15 cash per hour to get it.

Oh my. That's against the law, you say???

Tell someone who cares. In the modwest, we have the worst unemplyment in the entire world and you still can't get anyone over to your home or office to do an honest day's work for an honest day's pay in this friggin h3ll hole.

Looks like they're getting desperate in California. I've seen news stories about a planned wave of anti-republican smear campaigns.

TMZ, please stay out of all things political. It does not become you. Oh, and stay away from all stories Gloria Allred. Oh, and same with all stories "long-suffering (insert flavor of the month minority here)household employee".

Gloria...the Democrat. Is there anyone with an ounce of common sense & morals that can't see what this is all about?
Someday she too will have to answer for what she has done. Hiding behind her lawyers degree isn't going to buy her a ticket to heaven!

Puullleeaassee! Gloria Alred is a 100% bonified media whore. She'll take advantage of any women out there with a grudge. I bet the "housekeeper" has been coerced by the competition to "clean house". The only thing dirty is Meg's competition.

Wouldn't it be a kick if the Latina House Maid turned out to be Linda Rondstadt? Ok, ok, that was bad. However, this story is so laughable coming at this time, and then to throw in Super Glo, it only makes the entire story ridiculous and a waste of time. Not even a D for effort Jerry Brown. I hope when Meg is elected, she finds a way to root out all the Sacramento HOGS, as well as all the local HOGS feeding at the Taxpayers trough.
To even imagine anyone believing this stupid story, they have to be drunk on their Kool-Aid.

LOL Did anyone actually watch the debate? Who would hire Jerry Moonbeam rather then Meg Whitman. Please, a carreer politician verses someone from the business community. Wake up people the goverment doest create anything. It takes other peoples hard earned tax dollars and spends them inefficiently.

How about this ex employee just saying 'thank you' for a job she could have quit at any time.

Imagine that,right before the election. Wow, the Democrats aren't behind this are they.

"Wow, I knew there was more to this woman than being miss goody goody.
I have researched her out and everything that I have found shows nothing but good about her." - timmsa

@timmsa, For real? Whitman is a tyrant! Check her treatment of employee Young Mi Kim and the way she raised her snotty, evil, racist children (they didn't just pick their vile behavior up in the private country club school yard).

I can only imagine how poorly that family must have treated their "domestic help".
