The Meg Whitman Nanny Saga Continues

More

Former eBay CEO Meg Whitman's former nanny, Nicky Diaz, alleged yesterday that Whitman knew she was working in Whitman's house as an illegal immigrant and fired her quite cruelly once her political ambitions got in the way.


Today, the saga continues.

Gloria Allred, the lawyer who orchestrated a press conference with Diaz yesterday, told George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America today that she will reveal a document today at noon (Pacific) the proves Whitman knew Diaz was illegal.

It's a 2003 letter from the Social Security Administration informing Whitman that the Social Security number Diaz provided wasn't right. Whitman told Stephanopoulos she didn't get the letter. Allred says Diaz found multiple letters, from the government, notifying Whitman of Diaz's illegal status, in the trash at Whitman's house.

Allred said she is producing the document today, and not yesterday, because Whitman denied it. Effectively, it prolongs the drama.

Whitman's campaign has provided documents showing Diaz deceived Whitman by falsifying her legal status.

Whitman's response to all this: It's not true. "I think someone got to her. She's being manipulated. I don't know the back-story here. I feel terribly for Nicky," Whitman told Stephanopoulos on this morning's show.
