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."

Gloria Allred should be ashamed of herself. She's now stooping to practicing "illegal" law. Not long ago, she represented a woman who wanted Tiger Woods to "apologize" to her for sleeping with her while he was married !! haha Gloria needs to get some "REAL" clients for a change !

What is plain as day you dumb azz? Not being an USC necessary doesn't make someone an illegal. People LEGALLY immigrate to the US every year and are authorized to work...

Except for this boarder jumping bitch Gloria 'The Extortionist' Alfred is representing.

This lady was getting $23 an hour, way more than a lot of people who are here LEGALLY! No sympathy from Chuckles. I'm not a fan of Whitman, but I HATE Allred. Opportunist of the lowest order...

#24. Yes. It states she is not a US citizen but on the same page, she checked "YES" that she can legally accept employment. If someone has a green card, they are not a US citizen BUT they can legally accept employment. If they do not have a green card or Visa, are here illegally, and not a US citizen, they cannot LEGALLY accept employment. She lied. And the agency representing her should have figured this out in 2000.

Look, obviously Meg doesn't practice what she preaches. The housekeeper specifically check marked the box that said she wasn't a legal citizen. It's up to Meg (as the employer) to pursue it further and get the appropriate do***entation reflecting the housekeepers status and permission to work in the US. I mean, since she feels so strongly about employers not hiring undo***ented workers. You can't expect anyone, not even a legal resident to just volunteer or provide that do***entation unless specifically asked for it.

The $23 an hour would be divided between the agency and the employee.

The maid has probably cranked out an anchor baby or two and can't be sent back now anyway. This is probably all moot.

I find it funny that she has claimed she went to Canada College in San Mateo county yet shes said shes illegal. Could she have come into the country legally under a student visa? And if thats the case why is her entire family here? I find this whole situation odd. Meg had a copy of a drivers licence, she had a SSN Card this is all that is required when filling out her I-9 and giving her a job. My next question is why didnt the accountant notify Meg that the SSN came back fraudulently? After all she was paying taxes ( or should have been ) for 9 years. I find it hard to believe that if she was illegal that the IRS didnt notify Meg that she had hired an illegal. Regardless IMO Meg is better then Brown ... and she has a plan.

You are suppose to get a copy of SS card and DL. It is the law, I think. However, there are 2-3 different types of handwriting on that app which makes it look suspect. Sorta dirty that addresses/phone number were not blocked out, what gives Harvey?

Do the addresses and phone numbers exist?

#3, what part of that do***ent is showing her address. My guess is there are probably 500 streets that cross with Pompano Ave. If she is here illegally she should be on her way back sometime soon. If she is now legal then she should probably find a new job quickly.

This is all so ridiculous. People need to look at why this is happening now. It isn't simply an unjust attack on Meg Whitman, but also Gloria Allred needs an issue to distract from the fact that she was implicated in a scandal to attack Mel Gibson.
