Maid Co. -- Meg Whitman's Nanny Lied to Us Too!

9/30/2010 5:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The company that Meg Whitman used to hire her maid Nicky Diaz Santillan back in 2000 claims Nicky deceived them about her immigration status before the company referred her over to Meg.

The owners of Town & Country Resources tell TMZ that when Nicky filled out the standard candidate questionnaire, she "indicated she was legally able to work in the United States" ... even though Nicky knew she was in the country illegally.

T&CR add ... "Further, Nicky provided us and our client with the documents that our client would need to complete the I-9 form as was their legal obligation as an employer."

The company owners -- who claim they only took over in 2008 and had no part in referring Nicky -- claim the policy has changed in the past few years ... and potential workers must undergo "a rigorous background check, verified by a third party."

This isn't a spite fight between two maids. Whitman is running for office. She showed no ethics in hiring and pretending not to know the woman was illegal (for nine years, then "You don't know me"?). Ethical behavior requires a much higher standard. Even if everyone is lying, Whitman is the greatest offender. If an action can be seen as wrongdoing, you don't do it. If you did it, don't wake up and decide to be governor.

Freaks!    

Meg doesn't hire people from the US. She only hires Indians and Mexicans.

She'd sell her soul to save or make a nickel... oh, that was a long time ago!

Wait, on the one hand the Federal Government won't support the State of Arizona for having their police request proof of legal residence when a crime is committed, but on the other hand we want to punish an employer that didn't conduct an investigation into the do***entation that they were given by a person seeking employment.

Do we get dizzy speaking out of both sides of our face?

Politicians are schizophrenic. They don't want to stop illegal aliens from coming into the country because they are honest, hard working people who just need a job. They don't sit on employees who hire them - unless, of course, you a another politician. If they find out another politician employees an illegal, they want her hide!!! Make up your mind, already, you political hypocrits!!

you're all obviously blind.
yeah she did lie, but who approved, her, who hired her, who didn't enforce the LAW here.

the employer, and judging by the report after 9 years of service, you expect the candidate not to know, nor the service provider.

everyone was in the wrong here, but you ethnocentric tyrants only focus on the person with the least amount of power. so you put power over the individual.

get a sense of reality people, she prob lied out of necessity, to provide a service which the company and candidate exploited. she lied, that's one strike, they lied and exploited her, they are in the lead.

but i guess it doesn't matter, if your not rich, powerful, or white. you default as the worst hu?

Has anyone realized that this ILLEGAL immigrant has admitted, on TV, that she committed a major crime by providing false do***entation to get a job? Why is the focus on Meg Whitman? The focus should be on getting this ILLEGAL ALIEN out of the country. This Illegal immigrant has broken the law by coming here without proper do***entation and she has also broken the law by providing FAKE do***ents to get a job. She should be deported and not allowed to ever come back. It’s pathetic that Gloria Alred is such a manipulator and greedy snake that she would try a stunt like this. What is wrong with America? When is this country going to put on their big boy panties and stand up to these pathetic immigrants? America stop catering to all the 3rd world countries!

I don't know why but I have a suspecion that Meg Whitman will win because of this argument :)

BTW, the laws apply to everyone - it does not matter whether the illegal is from Mexico, Canada, Qubec, Armenia, south america or anywhere in the world.

ALL black people should be calling Allred's office screaming at her for stooping so low, in trying to compare this CRAZY ILLEGAL extortionist to Rosa Parks. Rosa Parks was a black woman, LEGAL citizen, and refused to give up a seat on a bus because it was a Constitutional violation of the Equal Protection Clause.

There is not even the slightest comparison between the two. This felon that Allred reps is a criminal and is not standing up for anything- What is she going to stand up for? ...the right to illegally enter the US? to extort money from wealthy Americans? the right to defraud Americans? the right to steal social security #s and commit identity theft? ETC.....

DISGUSTING

Oh well. Thats the company's fault for supplying Whitman with an illegal immigrant, and it is the Nicky's fault for not being honest. She obviously was desperate so she would lie and work for Whitman for 9 years no matter what the treatment.

It would be interesting to see how much the maid took home,tax free, while living in "near slavery". For a felon ,hiding out at Megs would be ideal as the Federal authorities would never think to look there,especially when all Meg's US employees (and some abroad) were and are citizens of the US or legally employable here.
Meg has not achieved "Politician Status" yet that would encourage her tohire illegals,lie on her income tax returns and so forth, knowingthose "mistakes" are forgiven by their feloow Politicos.
Bottom line,Meg did not get where she is today by being stupid...unlike Jerry Brown.

Where is Nicky's husband at?? Where he be?? or is he just a sperm donor for this very good cause?? Her kids if they were born here are citizens!! Who has been supporting her and her children since she was fired?? Welfare? Food Stamps? Medicaid?? I guess she thinks by making this stink she will get rich from suing Meg!!

be realistic - go anywhere in california - gas stations, resturants, offices (any type) infact anywhere and you'll come across illegal immigrants - if you blame Meg for doing this blame everyone else as well in California.

ok the woman is illegal, but if the white employers would quit hiring the illegals they wouldn't come in the first place. where is the outrage against the people doing the hiring.

I really don't see why people here are making a bg deal about the illegal maid. you must live under aglass bubble if you do not know that most maids and gardeners and anyone that does a dirty job in america is illegal and people hire them knowingly. i see it as hypocrecy and stupid to act as if you are so dignified and have mora superiority when you are more than likely living a house built by illegals. Just remeber onething, if thos people are illegals (since that is the right wing song "illegal") so are the many millions of people that hire them in hte United States. Even worse criminals for they know the laws much better than a foreigner!
