First Take: Governor vetoes pension bills; Whitman pushes back on housekeeper issue

October 1, 2010 |  8:49 am

First take -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed bills that would limit pension spiking, saying the measures did not go far enough.

-- Meg Whitman's campaign lashed out at Democrats Thursday and said the surfacing and timing of revelations that Whitman employed an undocumented immigrant for nine years are part of a "coordinated political attack." Whitman said Thursday she would take a polygraph test to show she had no idea her housekeeper was in the country illegally. Her campaign later amended her statements to say she would submit to a test only if Jerry Brown does.The housekeeper issue breathes new life into this weekend's second gubernatorial debate in Fresno, which is co-sponsored by Univision.
