Meg Whitman's former housekeeper hires Gloria Allred, calls press conference
Meg Whitman's former housekeeper has hired celebrity attorney Gloria Allred and called an 11 a.m. press conference to make what Allred's office is calling "allegations" against the Republican gubernatorial nominee.
This is not the first time Allred has injected herself into a campaign in the closing days. In 2003, a former stuntwoman hired Allred to pursue claims of sexual assault and defamation against now-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. That suit was dismissed.
