Gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman defends herself against allegations


Listen to the audio story here:

Meg Whitman denies allegations that she knew Nicki Diaz Santillan, her former housekeeper, was an illegal immigrant. Diaz Santillan’s lawyer claims that Whitman and her husband knew of Santillan’s status due to the fact that documentation from the Social Security Administration was received showing that Diaz Santillan’s name and social security number did not match up.

Whitman hired her housekeeper through an agency that took note of the legal status of its employees. Whitman fired her after Diaz Santillan confessed she was an illegal immigrant, but Whitman never reported her to the authorities.
