    Meg Whitman's former maid gets $5,500 in back wages - San Jose Mercury News
    <excerpt>
    "Ending an ordeal that may have doomed her race for governor, Meg Whitman on Wednesday agreed to pay her former maid back wages of $5,500, an amount dwarfed by the political fallout created when the illegal-immigrant housekeeper came out of the shadows to accuse the billionaire of cheating her."

    Maybe she got fast-tracked citizenship from a grateful bunch of Democrats.

    We really need to clean up our political system.... this was such a load of made up bullshit by the Dems that it is laughable that they expect anyone to believe the crap they came out with.

    Seriously, don't you think we have become a rather pathetic nation?

    $5500 and exploiting her infamy as an illegal, so she can't work again.

    That's all?

    Funny way for lefties to show compassion.

    Last I heard slavery was illegal whether the worker has papers or not.

    And yeah, I hope she got a one-way ticket back home. Three wrongs don't make a right.

    Back wages? More like shakedown money. Whitman was the victim of a political smear, courtesy of high-profile Jerry Brown supporters.

    Nobody deserves their rotten, miserable situation more than Californians.
