Maid in the U.S.A.

At a debate in California which was broadcast in Spanish, Candidate Meg Whitman accused her opponent, Jerry Brown, of releasing the story about the undocumented housekeeper she had fired.  Brown said that, if she won’t take responsibility for her actions, she shouldn’t be governor.

Whitman fired Nicandra Diaz Santillan in June 2009 after 9 years of employment.  Diaz Santillan appeared at a news conference held by attorney Gloria Allred, the Forrest Gump of sensational news stories.  She said that Whitman told her, “I cannot help you. And don’t say anything to my children. I will tell them you already have a new job … and from now on you don’t know me, and I don’t know you. You have never seen me, and I have never seen you. Do you understand me?”

Of course, the Latino community was less than thrilled with Whitman, so Queen Nutmeg tried to make believe that she was only worried about the housekeeper she threw out like yesterday’s trash.  She said, “The real tragedy here is Nicky. After Nov. 2, no one’s going to be watching out for Nicky Diaz.”  Then she blamed Jerry Brown and his supporters for putting the former maid in jeopardy of being deported.

Originally, Queen Nutmeg accused the maid of stealing her mail, saying neither she nor her husband were aware of a letter from the government that said that the maid’s Social Security number did not match her name.  Allred took out a letter that Queen Nutmeg’s husband, Dr. Griffith Harsh, had written on, instructing the maid to check on that.  Neither Queen Nutmeg nor her husband took any additional steps to look into the matter.

During a primary battle against Steve Poizner, Queen Nutmeg campaigned against a path to legalization of illegal immigrants.  She said that employers should be held accountable for hiring them.

    Meg is an excellent example of the party of personal accountability. Everyone’s personally accountable except them. I hope she keeps blaming Jerry since it’s all obviously his fault.

    • i think it’s poetic justice that a poor maid is the one who took down the billionairess. it’s almost like a fairy tale. powerless cinderella getting back at the powerful wicked stepmother.

  2. And just like in a fairy tale, Megs will turn into a pumpkin…. or fossil on election day.
    Look for used campaign signs on e bay!

    • she’s already a beast, and i don’t think anything is going to change that.

      • Regardless of how much she’s spent on her campaign, the truth coming out is *priceless*.
        She’s made a mess no maid can clean up!

        • ‘zactly! but let’s not celebrate until she officially loses. of course, we can enjoy the implosion until then. after all, queen nutmeg has spent so much money, so we might as well get all the entertainment value as possible. 🙂

  3. I certainly agree that it’s poetic justice. Hope it brings Megie way down…

  4. I had a devious thought today. I was wondering if the Democrats here in Michigan can tie Meg Doesn’t Give a Whit-man and Linda McMahon to GOTeaP candidate Rick Snyder and have them weigh him down as an example of why businesspeople make bad politicians.

    Of course, the Mayor of Detroit is a businessman, so that might backfire on us. Phooey.

    Love how Fleischman in the last paragraph gives the typical GOPer response: Can’t wait till it’s off the radar, under the rug, gone. But the hypocrites never stop yapping on the Dems and the GOPers never want to admit they’re wrong. Or run off and hide from the media like the Baggers.

  6. It’s funny reading this stuff after it has all come to pass (this was the start of my news blackout period). Not nearly as funny as sitting in the dark on US 287 out of gas 17 miles out of Amarillo waiting for the service truck to bring a gas can.

    • i love reading about your adventures in these little snippets. it’s like doing a jigsaw puzzle when you don’t know what the final picture is going to look like.

  7. Tell me! I was running on dead recconing most of the way-get to Amarillo-find Mother Road-go past Barstow and find US 395-go over mountain-who could go wrong with those directions? Should have serialized into something like: “Tex West and the Kitten Smuggling Caper” Chapter one-Running on empty….

  8. Would be more interesting with a wild redhead in the passenger seat instead of a brown hound. Would have to bleep a lot of cussing of the temp gauge. Would not atempt this again if offered 10 grand.
