Most people assumed this was the case, but now there is proof. The “nannygate” incident which essentially toppled Meg Whitman’s campaign for Governor of California was a political dirty trick orchestrated by the nurses union.
At the end of September the California Governors race was taken over by Gloria Allred, attorney, Democratic Party advocate, lover of the TV Camera, and protector of scandalous “other woman.” According to Allred, Nicky Diaz-Santillan “toiled” for Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Meg Whitman for nine years, and was fired in June 2009.
Ms. Allred, savior of the downtrodden “d-listers,” claimed that Diaz was fired “for what appeared to be political reasons involving Ms. Whitman’s decision to run for governor.” Ms Whitman, on the other hand claimed the former nanny falsely filled out immigration forms when she first applied for employment as a housekeeper and was not, in fact, a legal resident of the United States. The Republican candidate Meg Whitman says that Ms. Diaz was terminated because she lied about her resident status.
According to the SF Chronicle the entire incident was brought to the forefront by the California Nurses Association in order to sabotage the Whitman campaign
At the beginning of September Diaz complained to a friend that she thought her dismissal was unfair. That friend knew the California Nurses Association’s stance on Whitman, and gave the information to a friend at the Nurses Union.
