Nicky Diaz Santillan: Meg Whitman’s Housekeeper Claims Mistreatment (VIDEO)

September 29, 2010

Nicky Diaz Santillan is Meg Whitman’s housekeeper—or should I say ‘was?’ Now the former maid is making some serious allegations about her treatment at Whitman’s home, among other scandalous claims. Get the full story here, and see photos and video below.

News hit earlier today that the California Republican Gubernatorial Candidate may be taking a trip over the coals at the hands of a former housekeeper. The woman behind the allegations has hired big-shot celebrity attorney Gloria Allred, who is reportedly poised to file a legal claim on her behalf.

Not only does Nicky Diaz Santillan say she was mistreated while working for Whitman, but possibly the most damning claim is that the politician knew her maid was an illegal immigrant all along. It wasn’t until Santillan asked for help, Allred says, that Whitman kicked her to the curb.

At a press conference today in California, Allred characterized Whitman’s treatment of the former housekeeper, saying she was “exploited, disrespected, humiliated and emotionally and financially abused.”

As for the immigration issue, Allred said: “…Ms. Whitman was aware of her status, and may have understood that she was vulnerable because of it…”

Naturally Whitman’s campaign posted some paperwork online to refute the allegations, and even went so far as to suggest that the woman’s employment documents had been ‘falsified.’

Here is part of a statement issued in her defense:

“After 9 years of faithful service, Nicky came to us in June 2009 and confessed that she was an illegal worker…Nicky has falsified the hiring documents and personal information she provided to the employment agency that brought her to us in 2000.”

I don’t know folks, the timing is a little suspect. Buckle up, it’s going to get ugly!

    So far the only proven facts are, Nicky Diaz Santillan is in this country illegally, she used forged do***ents to obtain employment and is probably also guilty of identity theft. The evidence supports Nicky Diaz Santillan being a known liar and criminal. And, Gloria Allred did her client a major disservice by having her admit this in a televised interview. By the way, has Ms. Santillan been arrested yet for fraud?

    IF??? Meg Whitman is guilty of anything; it was a brief bout of bad judgment.

    On another note…while I was at the Californian Federation of Teacher’s convention last March, a fairly large number of delegates called Jerry Brown a “lying son-of-a-b**h that we can’t trust!” That was just before the membership voted to support him. I’m still trying to figure that one out.

    Report Illegal Employers Says:

    People like Meg Whitman should be fined, jailed, and subjected abuse by fellow inmates to deter others from employing illegal aliens. If you stop hiring them they won’t ask you to hire them anymore.

    Isn’t Gloria Allred employing Nicky to bash Meg at the request of Jerry Brown? The difference is Gloria knows Nicky is illegal while Meg didn’t. And when Meg found out she followed the law. In the end Nicky should be deported and Gloria should be disbarred.
