Gloria Allred:

Meg Whitman Is a Liar

9/30/2010 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gloria Allred just went after Meg Whitman with a vengeance ... waiving a letter from the Social Security Administration sent to Meg back in 2003, putting Meg and her husband on notice there was a problem with their housekeeper's Social Security number -- a sign she was here illegally.

Earlier today Whitman suggested the housekeeper, Nicky Diaz Santillan, may have intercepted the letter and never given it to Whitman and her husband.  Whitman says she never got the letter.

But today, Gloria produced the letter with what she says is a written command from Meg's husband -- "Nicky, please check this."

Earlier today Whitman said she would take a polygraph test -- but Gloria says Nicky doesn't have to take a polygraph test because she has the letter as proof, and "the evidence speaks for itself."

As for Whitman's claim that Gloria is working with Jerry Brown to engineer a smear campaign -- Gloria says she has not made any contribution to Brown's current campaign and hasn't had any contact recently with Brown or his people.

The that's-so-Gloria moment came when she called Nicky, "The courageous Rosa Parks" of the Latino community.

Straight from the no match letter provided by that idioit Allred "This letter does not imply that your or your employee intentionally provided incorrect information about the employee's name or SSN. It is not a baisi, in and of itself, for you to take any adverse action against the employee, such as laying off, suspending, firing or discriminating against the individual. Any employeer that uses the information in this letter to justify taking adverse action against an employee may violate state or federal law and be subject to legal consequences. Moreover, THIS LETTER MAKES NO STATEMENT ABOUT YOUR EMPLOYEE'S IMMIGRATION STATUS"

Basically they are grasping at straws. They have nothing on Whitman or her husband.

This is nothing but a setup, but even if it were true, how is this different from Obama pretending he didn't know his aunt was here illegally?

So how did this illegal obtain this "letter", unless she intercepted it from her employer. Sounds pretty suspect. Didn't this Allrad woman represent the Tiger Wood's mistress the one who got $10 million. Are we suppost to take this mess seriously?

Let's be real    

Let's see...Nicky has already lied & committed one fraud with the IRS & the employment agency representing her...not too big a stretch of anyone's imagination that she's doing it again. I was especially un-moved by her speech indicating that she's only doing this for all of the other illegal alien housekeepers in the US. Sorry you felt financially humiliated here at $23/hour - head down across the boarder for some $2/hour work and let us know how you feel then!

Do we even care about this?? Why would anyone even point a camera in Gloria Allred's direction? She's an attention-whore and I can't stand that this is being reported on.

What a shock! An illegal housekeeper in California. Is she being deported now? Why is the maid crying about the fact that she worked for Meg Whitman and lied on her employment app.? This story infuriates me - - - please make it go away.

Ms.Alred has no business calling anyone a liar. And why isn't the government not seeking to expel that illegal alien CRIMINAL with forged social security number, driver's license, and immigration papers?

@Ben It was up to them to check up on her again after receiving the letter. No it does not mean she lied about her status it could have meant that she got numbers mixed up etc. But it is up to the employer to check to be sure it isn't identity theft or the case of hiring somebody who is here illegally. So no after just receiving the letter they should not have fired her, however this should have led them to investigate to make sure the person was who she said she was (especially if the person is in your home and taking care of your children). If nothing else it proves Meg Whitman to be irresponsible.

I posted this earlier to another post:
Meg is full of crap! And it is her responsibility. this does not defend Nicky's actions (falsifying do***ents) but... Meg would not have just received the one letter from the Social Security Administration. They would have sent notice after notice. Her 941 Federal reports, or her Schedule H on her returns would have been changed by the IRS if she had not responded to the first letter. After the 3rd letter from the SSA the IRS would have then began to start sending letters. The unemployment agency in California would have then recertified her Megs returns without Nicky's wages. She would have been getting all kinds of notices from SSA, IRS, Unemployment. Nicky wouldn't have known to intercept all of those letters. Also eventually, assuming their was no response, as Meg claims, the letters would have started coming from the IRS, certified. I am almost 99.9% sure that Meg and her husband do not do their own taxes. Therefore, their accountant would have been made aware of this, as the preparer of the returns, the IRS would have eventually contacted him.
Also - the application Nicky filled out - she stated that she was not a U.S. citizen, therefore - Meg, or the employment agency - should have asked for an INS number, that number should have gone on to the I-9, the I-9 is filled out incorrectly. The employment agency, and Meg, should have also known that as she was not a legal citizen, her Social Security Card should have stated whether or not she was able to work in the U.S.

Nicky is truly an inspiration with her story of making over $50k a year. The horrible mistreatment she must have endured when doing her job for 9 years that she could left at any time.

Freaks!    

Meg would take half of India and move them here to take over all your jobs if she could.

She's no genius or leader - she just rode the wave of the web craze and got out when she saw outsourcing and slashing jobs was not working.

What a HORRIBLE insult to Rosa Parks. Rosa Parks did not enter the country illegally. I don't like Meg or Brown, but this is ridiculous. THE MAID FALSIFIED DO***ENTS AFTER ENTERING THE COUNTRY ILLEGALLY! What is so hard to understand about that being WRONG?

Meg has denied, denied, denied ever recieving a letter from the Feds for her to follow up. Today she even hinted the letter may have been stolen or "intercepted." That was before the bombshell dropped...

The letter from the US Federal Gov. asking for follow up has come out with her mans handwritting all over it. Wow, this is right out of Colombo...

Just one more question, What excuse will Meg pull now???

Obama won't let this woman get deported. He is all for them getting the piece of the pie. The law doesn't apply to illegals-only when it is convenient for liberals.

So, let me get this straight:

Allred is going after Whitman, who fired Nicky after Nicky told her she was illegal. Allred attacks Whitman by saying she's the employer.

Here's the precise problem with Allred's position.

Whitman hired the Employment Agency to provide a home-service worker. The Employment Agency provided Whitman a do***ent stating that Nicky, THEIR employee, was legal. Whitman, essentially, hired the Employment Agency who then provided Nicky (no different than hiring a temp thru a temp agency). Only after Nicky admitted she was illegal, did Whitman do the right thing and fire Nicky.

Why then, doesn't Allred go after the actual Employer - the Employment Agency who hired and provided false do***entation from Nicky? Allred claims she's going after the employer...Fine, go after the Agency rather than Whitman.

Allred is a sad sad person.
