Whatever you do, don't jaywalk.

Jaywalking is a crime.

LAPD will be on you like stink on chit.

However, go on television,
declare that you're an "undocumented" criminal,
were forced to cross illegally,
and you get rewarded!!

I'm really torn. It's a toss-up whom I detest more, the Allred/Diaz team or Nutmeg. How about if Nutmeg buys a house in that fine country to our south, Diaz gets deported and works as her housekeeper. Unfortunately she'd be paid standard wages for a housekeeper in Mexico (about $23/week instead of $23/hr). Whoria can stay...she does just fine consistently embarrassing herself, her profession and (unfortunately) her religion.
"Nutmeg" "Whoria" and the rhyme "buys a house in that fine country to our south"

You WIN the best post of the forum. Too fricken funny!!

The only settlement this woman deserves is a one-way ticket to her native country! Ask the Mexican authorities what they'd do with her if she were an illegal alien caught living in their country.

Meg is a fool to give into this women, she was paid very well by any standards for the work she performed. This women deceived Meg and her husband and should be deported.
The other criminal in this case is Gloria Allred, In my opinion, Allred intentionally attempted to destroy Meg Whitman's run for the Govenor of Ca. I guess Gloria is still celebrating Meg's loss.
I bet Jerry Brown owes Gloria a big one.

Meg you're a billionaire, you could have hired someone with a freaking doctorate to clean your house. You deserve what you got for being a lazy, cheap, masculine looking lesbian of a woman.

The key word in your first sentence is "fool". Nutmeg showed it when she spent $140 million to try and buy the Governors office. How did Allred "destroy" Meg's attempt to buy an office? Meg did it all to herself. Good riddance to her and her friggin' maid.

John, about the only thing I agree with is that Meg has so much money that I rather doubt she gave a darn how much she had to pay to get her house cleaned.

That may explain why she went though an agency and paid TOP DOLLAR for the maid they sent her.

Do you really think $23 an hour is cheap for a maid? Maids abound for about half that much money and obviously if Meg wanted to cheap out it would have been easy for her to do.

The real cheapskates hire illegals cash and if you add up all the hours they make them work, they don't even make Min Wage, and they don't pay for everything else that should go along with decent employment like workers comp insurance.

Meg's biggest fault might be that she was far too willing to spend the money and let someone else,(the company she hired her maid though), do all the legal stuff.

Tell me when you hire a plumber do you insist on seeing their paperwork too, or do you just think that's the plumbing companies problem.

Next time remember that when you tap your foot once, we're going to my place. Tap your foot twice if we're going to yours. I hate it when we miscommunicate.

How does an uneducated illegal maid deceive the former CEO of EBay? That says more about Meg than it does the uneducated housekeeper.

First, I doubt you're really going to ask the Roto Rooter guy to show you his papers becasue if you did you'd never get service. He's not equivelant to a maid, and he's not required to carry his papers with him any more than you are, so if you asked him for them he wouldn't have them.

Second, if you did ask and like Meg's maid, the plumber showed you counterfit paperwork, would that make you happy like it satisfied the employment agency that Meg went to so that she wouldn't have to deal with that problem herself?

Meg could afford to pave her path with money and spend her time doing whatever she wanted to do, and she did. If I had her money I might do the same but I don't and you probably don't either.

Don't expect her to behave like we do, she has more money than she knows what to do with and is obviously willing to throw it around to make life easier for her.

The agency was to do all the background checks. By providing this bean herder as an employee it's implied that she was legal. Do you check the broken English speaking person taking your order at Burger King?

Do not blame on the agency. The SSA was contacted Meg and her husband directly. If I was one of them, should reply the SSA. As a decent US citizen, one must reply any government's letter and should not be ignored.

What Nikki Diaz did is being done on a daily basis by millions of illegals across this country. Thier need to have a better life superseeds any type of laws or moral character. Trouble is, the massive financial damage being done by the invaders is uncountable. Look at the creed of "La Raza" we are being invaded by a super racist, super selfish, super criminally active race. All LA County jails are over 70% Latino/Hispanic. All California prisons are over half Latino/Hispanics. California Federal Prisons are againn majority Latino/Hispanics. Criminal culture. It will only get worse.
