Oh, that piece of paper? California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman now says her husband might have seen the letter at the center of the illegal worker allegations. A former housekeeper, Nicky Diaz Santillan, claims Whitman and her husband knew she lacked the right papers to work in the U.S., but kept her on the job any way.
For the past two days, the GOP nominee said her husband, Dr. Griffith Harsh, have said they never received a letter from the Social Security Administration, warning them of this problem. Whitman said she's even willing to take a polygraph test to prove it. Then today, she told KNX radio in L.A. that she suspects writing on the letter is her husband's. (Read: he probably knew what was happening all along).
Gloria Allred, Santillan's lawyer, will be on the show tonight to discuss the latest developments.
This scandal is adding more to Whitman's plate. A new Spanish-language TV attack ad slams the candidate for her stances on undocumented immigrants, and then employing one for nine years.
