Meg Whitman is mad. She’s been talking and talking and talking about holding employers responsible for hiring illegal immigrants, and—BAM!—turns out she’s an employer who hired illegal immigrants. But not just illegal immigrants. Her housekeeper. For nine years. Oy.
Whitman says this is all a ploy by her opponent, Jerry Brown; that it’s much to do about nothing. Which, again, would be true … had Whitman not made this a big issue of her campaign. Plus, there’s no way in hell you have an employee work inside your home for nine years and not know she was illegal. No. Possible. Way. And, if by some chance you actually didn’t know, well, pathetic.
I have no beef with Whitman, but I do have beef with phony political bullshiters.
