While I respect the necessity and benefits of such a person in our free society I do dislike her politcal "activism" under color of justice. There are many cases she has handled that were deserving and of her barracuda approach, and some that I did not agree with. But she misuses her celebrity sometimes and this harms people who do not really deserve her wrath. And the fact that nobody is willing to speak a cross word about her is proof of that. She is a piece of the olde boy network she claims to disdain so much.

She's a piece, all right. But you can't print that noun in a family paper (or comment board).

Gloria Allred "The poster child" for liberals. Gloria's views on everything is all you have to know about liberalism. She is out defending an illegal alien, multiple felon. Remember liberals demand the right to slaughter there own unborn children but defend people in this country illegally, using forged stolen documents to help them continue committing crimes. Liberalism is a mental disorder.

I and a coworker tried to hire her almost 25 years ago to fight for us against our union and our employer,LA county . but were told her retainer was 5,000$,just to start everything "rolling". Needless to say, we were unable to afford that retainer. I wonder how that "illegal alien" was able to afford her retainer???? I'm just saying.....

This Gloria Alred story and photos is nothing more than a transparent political advertisement and it is a stretch to call it jornalisum.

If John Rogers was actually doing his job, he would have reported that activist and immigration attorney Marc Van der Hout was early on identified as the brains behind the “Nicandra ‘Nicky’ Diaz Santillan Dream Team”. Gloria Allred has publicly admitted that Marc Van der Hout is Nicky Diaz Santillan immigration attorney and that she was only retained to be an “advocate” and advise her client. Gloria Allred has also refused to answer the question of whether any third party is paying for her services.

The uncontroverted facts are that an un-named attorney sought out former Meg Whitman’s house keeper Nicky Diaz Santillan. This yet to be named attorney, then brought in immigration attorney Marc Van der Hout, who in turn brought in feminist discrimination attorney Gloria Allred and others for the expressed purpose of attempting to derail the Meg Whitman’s campaign and to try to influence the outcome and subvert California’s gubernatorial election. In doing so, each have their specific role and purpose to play on the “Dream Team”. In addition, the attorneys involved have attempted to build a “Chinese Wall” or “Fire Wall” which is a concept or method used by Attorneys when they attempt to avoid ethical violations.

It has also been suggested that Marc Van der Hout had cut a deal with both the state of California and the Feds before he allowed Gloira Allred to do her dog and pony show. This makes sense because otherwise why would Gloria Allred would have compromised her client in some many ways which otherwise would have been unethical. Jerry Brown as California’s attorney general has failed to have action taken against Nicky Diaz Santillan for various violations to include the use of a fraudulent or forged social security card and California driver’s license. You cannot obtain a California drivers license without proof of birth, legal status and social security number. Also consider the fact that for 9 years Whitman deducted and paid in payroll taxes for her employee Nicky Diaz Santillan. So if the 4/30/2003 Social Security Administration notices is so damning, why didn’t the Social Security Administration follow up?

The Gloria Allred/ Nicky Diaz Santillan/Meg Whitman story is probably illustrate the most blatant failures of our state and federal government and just how corrupted our political process has become. It also shows the unwillingness of politicians to deal with illegal aliens or their biased toward them despite the fact that the problems are costing those who actually pay taxes billions of dollars.

The bigger issue is that the rights of all voters in California have been compromised. And, because the up coming California election also includes an election for Senator and all U.S. House of Representatives, the rights of all American’s have also been compromised.

Americans have rights?
It was my understanding that when electing Pelosi, Boxer, Feinstein and finally the Annointed one that we (Americans) gave up our rights and agreed to become Socialist Dogma Puppets for the Politoro.
Put Brown in and you've got a clean sweep; at least in California. Socialist agenda; Union Supporters; Obamacare (still don't know how that's going to get paid for; the shell game is too complicated for me to decipher).
It was strictly to discredit Meg; who followed the law in every regard. Agreed - if the Social Security Administration was concerned; they'd have followed up. If Meg KNOWINGLY hired an illegal; why pay the required taxes?
Diaz was fired by Meg due to a lack of trust. I'd have done the same.
Regarding validation of her status - that was the job of the agency which supplied her. How come nobody's looking into that? How many more illegals have jobs through this agency? Not saying the agency was doing anything wrong; if the papers can fool the DMV, they can fool just about anybody.
If Meg was required to do the vetting herself (because of agency involvement, she wasn't), then why use an agency at all? Why not an ad in the paper or Craigslist to find a housekeeper?
This trail smells like the dead fish in Allred's panties. All of it points to discrediting Meg to put Brown in office and finish converting this once glorious (instead of Gloria's; which she seems to think it is) state into a swamp.

Waaah, waaah, waaah! What's the matter, Tea Bagger? Didn't get your way? Just so your pea brain can understand this, I'll put it simply: Meg Whitman hired and employed an illegal alien in HER OWN HOME for 9 years and got caught. That proves that she is not only a hypocrite, but a liar. Nobody planted the maid in her house and nobody made the story up. Meg did it all by herself. Waaah, waaah, waaah. BTW: Carly Fiorina shipped your "Chinese Wall" to China along with 30,000 American jobs. Put that in your John Birch Society/Tea Party commemorative pipe and smoke it.

Remember when there was the shooting at the Stockton school yard, we had to ban assault weapons.
The McDonalds shooting, next a ban on high capacity magazines.
Every time there is a shooting some left wing liberal limp-dic organization uses the media to stir up public opinion to ban all firearms.
EXCEPT when a gunman shot up a San Francisco law firm killing a bunch of lawyers, funny not a peep.
In fact any time a gun issue come up we are reminded of Stockton and McDonalds, But never about the lawyers.
Even the Anti-gun nuts know that you get no public opinion sympathy and the reason is attorneys like Goria, the late Johnny Cochren, the OJ dream team and the A.C.L.U.
Long live the Second Amendment!

The writer cites one case that is supposed to make her look like and honorable person and asks, "So which is the real Allred?" It doesn't say she's doing the case pro bono and it admits that she's getting publicity with it. Seriously? Is this supposed to be honest journalism?

"As long as I have this gift of life I intend to do it" says Allred. Do what ... promote your ugly mug like a Villaraigossa on steroids?

"How 'bout we let the maid stay, we deport Gloria Allred?"

Deporting the maid AND Gloria have my vote!

The Nicki Diaz and Gloria Allred story is nothing more than a hit piece on Meg Whitman. You will hear nothing more and Nicki like almost all ILLEGAL ALIENS will continue to live illegally in this country sponging off of the tax payers and grabbing every freebie they can get there hands on. Committ felonies and the Democrats will defend you to the end as long as you vote Democrat
