Does Meg Whitman have a household help problem? Perhaps. A former housekeeper, Nicky Diaz, has said she was in the US illegally while she was working for Ms. Whitman. Ms. Diaz also alleges that Whitman was told years ago by the federal government that she might be an illegal immigrant – but that Whitman did nothing about this notification.
Whitman has strenuously denied the allegation, and said she received no such letter from the US. She fired Diaz when she found out her immigration status, she says.
Whether this will hurt Whitman in her gubernatorial contest remains to be seen.
