Meg Whitman: My Maid's Full of It

9/29/2010 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Meg Whitman's campaign just gave us documents suggesting that her former maid, Nicky Diaz Santillan, actually lied to Meg about her immigration status when she was hired back in 2000.

Whitman maid.

The documents, which Whitman claims Nicky filled out and signed back in 2000 during her application for employment, appear to show that the maid stated under the penalty of perjury that she was a "lawful permanent resident" of the United States.

Whitman also claims Nicky provided her with a social security card and valid California Driver's License with her employment application ... which Meg kept and has now handed over to TMZ.

Whitman has also issued a statement on the matter, saying ... "After 9 years of faithful service, Nicky came to us in June 2009 and confessed that she was an illegal worker."  Whitman continues, "Nicky has falsified the hiring documents and personal information she provided to the employment agency that brought her to us in 2000."

And, Whitman continues, "I believe Nicky is being manipulated by Gloria Allred for political and financial purposes during the last few weeks of a hotly contested election."

Whitman concludes, "This is a shameful example of the politics of personal destruction practiced by people like Jerry Brown and Gloria Allred.  The charges are without merit."

Vote NO Meg Whitman    

Anyone that votes for Meg Whitman is doing nothing but letting her BUY AN ELLECTION.

MW does not care about you, me or the state of California. MW only cares about herself.

Hey Meg Whitman, how many jobs did you source out to India during your ebay years?

That's right MW cares so much about California that instead of putting Californians to work she sent millions of ebay money out of our country. Just think what those millions of dollars would have meant to local businesses.

Vote NO for Meg Whitman. That's a big NO VOTE for Whitman.

And I bet you can check the County and State voting records and find out this illegal forger criminal probably is a registered democRAT, and has voted in all of the elections since sneaking across the border . Come on how can you blame her for going to an Agency, the Agency is suppose to screen the illegal's out and then you hire someone who has lied to the agency and you and then further provides illegally forged do***ents to get hired.It is this SAME illegal who the democRAT's consider a major part of their political base and have been using to STEAL elections during the past 10 years. Why do you think the democRATS's don't want to deport any of them, per Homeland Security and ICE do***ents and memo's recently released PRIOR to the Mid Terms and Barry's re-election bid. You get rid of the ILLEGAL aliens who vote and the democRATic Party won't be able to win election to your local school boards. Face it Mayor Dailey used the "registered dead voters of Chicago" to steal the election for Kennedy, and his buddy Barry's Party of democRAT's with their croonies in the SEIU/Acorn and other "community organizing" voter theft groups to allow these "illegal votes" to undermine our election system.

Couple all of this with major democRAT supporter and funraiser Gloria Allred and you smell a a democRAT smear job! If you don't have a platform other than re-distribution of wealth, lying, and cheating, then SMEAR your opponent! Face it Prez Barry still hasn't put his big boy pant's on and taking any responsibility, so why should one of his illegal voting alien supporters earnig over $23.00 per hour be responsble for lying, cheating, sneaking her way into the country, and using forged do***ents to "steal" a jop from a legal resident of this country. Face it- AMericans will work for $23.00 an hour so don't give me the crap only illegals work for these wages!

This illegal graduated from high school in Mexico, and she took three years of College in Mexico City. She lies when she cries and says there were no jobs, no food and no place to live in Mexico and that is why she came here. She is an educated literate person, who would have had no problem getting a job in her country, however the pay is soooo low and that is why she came across the border. She's a smart Niki and she knows exactly what she is doing. The fact that all but 3 of her 11 siblings are here (illegally) as well as her parents (illegally) tells me this family knows how to work the system. Bet the father of Niki gets Social Security, and at least one sibling is on disability. Just saying.

The point is if you knowingly employ someone who is undo***ented, you are committing a crime. If they have proof she knew she was undo***ented, case closed. Whatever your opinions on "illegals" may be.

Obviously Whitman is in panic mode, how else to explain STUPIDLY sending these do***ents, that IMHO expose her to criminal liability. How so?

Look at the Dept. of Justice immigration form. Notice that while the employee Nicky filled it out, the section that is supposed to be filled out by the employer (Whitman) is NOT filled out.

The employer section says UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY the employer has confirmed the employee is legal and has a right to be in the U.S.

I submit that Whitman intentionally did not fill out that form so to escape a perjury / criminal charge if this ever blew up in her face (as it has 10 years later).

I also suspect that Whitman never filled out this form and sent it in to anyone or kept a signed copy in her files.

And sorry Meg, saying the employee duped you does not shield YOU from YOUR obligations under the law.

Are you contending that you did not suspect someone was undo***ented when in an application she says they are from Mexico, all the relatives are from Mexico, and has a husband who is from Mexico, and who has difficulty speaking English?

Does not matter anyway because the Social Security Administration sent you numerous letters telling you the employee's SSN did not match its records. That would have put you on notice, more than once.

And what did you do with those letters? You threw them in the trash. (And you can bet Nicky's lawyers have those letters now.)

Stick a fork in Leona Helmsly, excuse me, I mean Whitman, she is done.

"The thing is Meg knew about this in 2009 and continued to employ her for almost a year after that. She knew and broke the law once she got into the race and it got heated."

No, not true. They fired her in 2009 when she admitted to them that she was illegal. It took Nikki a year to mention it to anyone.

Hey JERRY BROWN: As ATTY Gen you now have the legal responsibility to prosecute this illegal mexican (1) entering the US illegally, (2) obtaining illegal IDs, (3) Stealing social security number, (4) tax fraud under wrong social security number, (5) extortion of Meg, (6) slander of Meg, (7) perjury, (8) probably has illegally obtained driver's license, etc, (9) probably collects state benefits illegally

That's funny, it won't display the word do***ent or undo***ented. If you look what letters it's blocking out you see what causes it, but it's funny they do that.

Why are you blaming this on Jerry Brown? I know the man and he has the most integrity of any person that I have ever met. Unless you got proof that he somehow did this Ms. Whitman, then you are no better than what you are accusing him of. Shame on you.

Meg Whitman needs to address the issue of the Social Security Department continually writing her regarding the problem with her housekeeper's status. The fact that she ignored the inquiries speaks for itself. Did she honestly believe she could maintain plausible deniability? How is it that the rich Republican elite can be so narcissistic to think everyone else is too ignorant to see thru their bull****?

Heads up to Hollywood, you better get rid of any illegal aliens you have in your employ, right now, or you may well be the next target of a shakedown or lawsuit by some disgrunted, ungrateful illegal alien who lied about their immigration status, and used stolen and fraudulent IDs and social security numbers, trying to cash in ala Allred/Santillan.

Start running those socials through E verify today.
Or else you could be NEXT!

Get the picture?
