Jerry Brown -- R-E-S-P-E-C-T for Whitman's Ex-Maid

9/29/2010 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Meg Whitman's rival Jerry Brown is wasting no time making hay off her undocumented worker scandal -- saying the former maid has a "compelling story."

In a news release, the Democratic candidate for governor of California said he wants Nicky Diaz Santillan to be "treated with respect and dignity as this story unfolds."

Brown added, "After more than a year of Whitman demanding immigration policy that 'holds employers accountable,' we learn that accountability doesn't extend to her own actions."

Whitman's camp claims Santillan lied about her immigration status ... and they believe they have the documents to prove it.

@ITUS-LOOK at the paperwork that Whitman provided and TMZ posted! The social security card AND her drivers license were BOTH in her name-the same name she currently uses and used ALL 9 years she was with Whitman! Gloria just wanted to add some fuel to her PR stunt. That was the first thing I looked for, come ON!

Meg should have made this mistake public early in her campaign. This was a huge political mistake that may cost her 120 million !!!

Really!!! a New York Times story reported that she had to pay a $200,000 settlement to a former employee for shoving an employee. Wow! she can shove me any day!!!

This BS is not going to help them with the Latino vote. The legals that are eligible to vote, who work hard and long for a much smaller wage are going to be disgusted by her whining about a gig they'd die to have. A gig she worked for 9 YEARS, and lied to get. The population is not as stupid as the Democrats think they are.

Whether Meg Whitman does - or does not - have do***ents proving her "innocence" is immaterial.

With Meg Whitman's financial horsepower and resources, she will simply have do***ents forged to prove she knew nothing. In the meantime, she will continue with her slash-and-burn campaign of demonizing the liberals for trying to tar her altruistic intent with a broad brush.

It might be wise to remember Teddy's axiom. Just 'cause yer paranoid doesn't mean they're ain't no one out to git'cha. Keep hangin' in there big girl.

With any kinda luck, y'all jes' might find 'nough rope to finish hangin' your campaign with.

do***entation of the facts should be a pretty simple matter. if whitman has the proof, then Nicki should face the penalty... vice versa.... simple thing really... seems like the rules are clear enough. difficult to believe that whitman would be stupid enough to knowingly employ an illegal, treat her poorly then fire her for political gain? hard to swallow

Back taxes? You haven't a clue. Most undo***ented workers pay payroll taxes and the state and fed keep them even if the worker doesn't make enough to owe any, since they have no way of claiming them. Ain't no victims here.

If this maid is still undo***ented, isn't Allred supporting a lawbreaker by representing her? I thought lawyers were under obligation to report crimes?

what a complete farce.

Gloria Allred should be in prison for filing false and bogus threats right along with her illegal immigrant latest sensation undo***ented alien client.

They can share a cell.

I wonder who will be doing most of the cleaning.

Brown had the audacity to make public statement about how he want's everyone to RESPECT the illegal alien, as California State Attorney General, whose job it is to uphold and enforce the laws in this state, he had NOTHING to say about the fact that the illegal alien came here illegally, got (or bought) a fraudulent drivers license and fraudulent social security number, lied about her legal status, and admitted that she was stealing mail out of Meg Whitmans trash, all of which are violations of state and federal laws?.... What a guy!
Really doing his job as the state's legal eagle there.

If he is to old, ignorant, and/or lazy to do the job of attorney general of the state, he is too old, ignorant, and/or lazy to do the job of governor.

Has anyone stopped to wonder how an undo***ented illegal alien has any rights at all to lawyer up the way she has? I have an idea first lets find out when the last time she paid her taxes was, oops! forgot she isn't listed as a citizen. ok how about arressting her for defrauding the state of california and send her ass to prison.

She is an illegal alien in possession of fraudulent do***ents.
She should be jailed then deported immediately.
In addition, Allread should be in prison for aiding a felon...
