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.

I'm also find both Allred and Whitman to be unscrupulous individuals, but I'm not surprised to hear this story about Whitman and her attempts at a cover-up considering she flipped flopped on the anti-immigration issue going from for against it to for it.

Whitman is clearly not someone I would want to see in office.

Why didn't this housekeeper hire an immigration lawyer? Something stinks.

Only in America.. Shame on you Jerry......................

Gloria Allred is a sleaze! She should not be able to practice law. Stunts like this hurt the credibility of real victims.

Im not really sure why we are concerned over someone that is not even legal in this country. We should focus on whats important with the actual citizens of this country.

So what is going to happen to her former housekeeper. She is in the country illegally and stole someone elses identity. When she joined the service that Meg Whitman used for a housekeeper she provided a false social security number and drivers license. This felon is being protrayed as a victim but she is a criminal.
