Although gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman said on Tuesday that she fired Nicky Diaz Santillan, her overly emotional maid, the moment he informed her that she was an illegal immigrant, that might not be the case. According to Sacramento Bee, "A lawyer for Meg Whitman's former housekeeper this afternoon released what she said is a 2003 letter from the Social Security Administration with Whitman's husband's handwriting on it, a measure to refute Whitman's claim she never received such a letter or knew the housekeeper was in the country illegally." Whitman, for her part, said she would take a polygraph test to prove her innocence. [Sacto Bee]
