Gloria Allred: I Smell a Meg Whitman Rat

10/20/2010 7:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gloria Allred says she's been sandbagged by Meg Whitman -- in a crass attempt to win the election in spite of the undocumented housekeeper scandal.

Gloria and her client, Nicky Diaz Santillan, Whitman's former housekeeper, were supposed to appear today before the California Labor Commission ... to formally protest Whitman's refusal to pay Santillan for work she did. 

But the hearing was mysteriously continued until November 17 ... two weeks after the election. A rep from the state agency tells TMZ ... the hearing was continued because Gloria wanted to amend the legal papers she filed with the Labor Commission.

But Gloria is calling BS, claiming she never asked for a continuance and believes this is a power play to get Meg elected Governor. Gloria says, "If this is how she treats her Latina housekeeper, it does not bode well for how she may treat working people if heaven forbid she is elected."

As for Meg, her camp tells us, "Someone needs to tell Gloria Allred that her political circus has left town."

Gloria's parting shot ... "This is not EBay and we are not buying the lies she is selling."

If Meg did have a hand in it (and I doubt that very much), I say "GO MEG!" Finally, CA will have a real business executive in the highest office in the state. (Ronald was the only non-exec that held the office and held it well). Jerry Brown was always a loser and will always be one. Even Linda Ronstadt knew that!

The simple fact, that Gloria Allred is substantially upset over this hearing being scheduled for a date after the election, genuinely tells anyone with a clear mindset what her true agenda has been. Plain and simple. I am not a Meg Whitman fan, but the simple fact is, that the housekeeper provided legitimate paperwork to get hired, and everything on the payroll side of the equation was legally appropriate. Many people would have been willing to be Ms. Whitman's housekeeper for $23 an hour. It is NOT as if they were paying a known "non citizen" $8 an hour, and taking advantage of them. I don't see any actual abuse in this situation, other than the exploitation offered by Ms. Allred.

Regardless, of whether someone is a Republican, Democrat, or somewhere in between, . . . any clear minded person should be able to call "B.S." on this whole situation.

Mr. Brown versus Ms. Whitman, . . . really???

Are these the best two choices that we could come up with???

GOOD GRIEF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did Gloria help Oksana to leak sealed tapes?

LOS ANGELES - Two potential witnesses in the Mel Gibson/Oksana Grigorieva criminal investigation have told authorities at the Los Angeles County Sheriff's department that their lives were threatened after they refused to fabricate evidence on behalf of Oksana Grigorieva, the actor's ex-girlfriend and the mother of his youngest child. Grigorieva has leveled charges of domestic abuse against Gibson, claiming that the actor assaulted her on more than one occasion. Last month, two potential witnesses in the case, Violet Kowal, a Polish porn star who claims to have slept with Gibson, and her bodyguard, Nikko Riley, told police that after they refused to help Grigorieva in her case against Gibson, her bodyguard threatened their lives by attempting to run down Riley and making verbal threats to have them killed by cops in his pocket. Kristian Otto Herzog, Grigorieva's bodyguard, pleaded guilty to two counts of impersonating an officer in 2009 and served 255 days in jail. According to sources close to the investigation, after being threatened by Herzog, Riley and Kowal told their lawyer, Gloria Allred, about the threats. Sources close to the investigation claim that after Allred failed to report the threats to the police and suggested that Kowal hold a joint news conference with Grigorieva, Kowal fired the attorney. Allred had no comment.

If Californians vote in Jerry Brown(Mr. California politics for 30 plus years)and not Meg Whitman, I will have proven my point that ALL Californians are either stupid or stoned. Gloria Allred worked for Brown in the past and he hired this dog-I mean skank(I do not want to insult my canine friends)to distract the electorate-DUH. Golly Gee who do I vote for a career politician or a Harvard educated woman who created a new business model that generated thousands of jobs and billions in revenue???? Wow, that is a really,really difficult choice!!!! Give me a break!!!

It seems Ms Allred's cases end up in the trash bin without closure. Cases taken are attention-getters but beyond that, nothing follows. Am I wrong?

Gloria Allred is a joker-mouthed, ambulance chasing harpy. This liberal succubus is afraid that Meg Whitman will highlight the fact that Allred, Pelosi, Boxer and Jerry Brown are nothing but political hacks whose only possible way of earning a living is sucking on the public's teat. By the way, of the four libs I mentioned, only one is a woman. Give up? It's Brown.

Alred is a peace of vile garbage, she would sue the pope. She will burn in hell, when it's her time. The devil would probably through her back and say isn't it bad enough down here with out her.

I think what Gloria Alred smelled was Meg Whitman's fart. Meg's are as silent and deadly as what she would do to California. Please don't elect this lying, smug, greedy, saggy, humorless hag. She will fart all over California the same way her Republican twin Arnold the Destroyer did -- one match and we'll all blow up!

So let's see IF I get this - either they all show up or someone phones and either way a continuance is granted. The Labor Commission said it was Gloria Allred who asked for time to FIX some papers.

WHY would the Labor Commission lie?

HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
