Democratic Partisan Gloria Allred Knows How to Play the Media

Gloria Allred probably knows her law suit is bunk.  She probably knows that some judge will throw it out, but is betting on it being thrown out after the November elections.  She’s not filing it because of any concern about Nicky Diaz Santillan, but out of animosity against Meg Whitman, a Republican candidate for Governor.

This is not the first time this Jerry Brown supporter has pulled such a stunt.  She did it the last time a non-incumbent Republican was running a strong campaign for Governor:

In 2003, a former stuntwoman hired Allred to pursue claims of sexual assault and defamation against now-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. That suit was dismissed.

You gotta give Miss Allred credit.  She knows the media let Democrats get away with such stunts.  But, with new media today, she may fall flat on her face as did Dan Rather in 2004.  Before the evening news had ever aired, Whitman had fired back, providing documentation to discredit the left-wing attorney and offered some choice words for that Democratic partisan:

I believe Nicky is being manipulated by Gloria Allred for political and financial purposes during the last few weeks of a hotly contested election. . . . This is a shameful example of the politics of personal destruction practiced by people like Jerry Brown and Gloria Allred.  The charges are without merit.

Whereas Meg has documents, all Allred’s got is her partisan animus. Allahpundit breaks it down:

Diaz had worked for the Whitmans for nine years when all of this allegedly went down. Curiously, the voicemail she claims she received apparently wasn’t played at the presser; on the contrary, the only hard evidence Allred offered was a mysterious “document” that’ll supposedly support their allegations but which they won’t reveal until they’ve heard Whitman’s response to the charges. Hmmmmm.

As for that response, it’s simple: Whitman says she didn’t know Diaz was here illegally and gave TMZ a copy of Diaz’s job application to prove it. The question “Can you legally accept employment?” is answered “yes” on page one, and government documents — including a Social Security card, a California driver’s license, an IRA W-4, and an INS verification form — are provided on pages 12-14. Good enough? Maybe not. Allred claims that Whitman did know of Diaz’s true status notwithstanding the job application, citing letters Whitman allegedly received from the Social Security Administration raising issues about Diaz’s identity.

If those nine years of labor were such a “nightmare” (as Allred alleges), how come she didn’t leave Whitman’s employ of her own accord?  And how come she waited until just five weeks before the election to file her claim?  And why did she choose an attorney with a left-wing political pedigree?  And where are those letters that Whitman allegedly received?

Questions, we do hope the media are asking.



  1. Whitman sued by Gloria Allred? That is a wonderful back-handed endorsement, a great reason to vote Whitman.

  6. IMHO, Gloria Allred’s love of attention-getting, worthless-lawsuit-filing, 15 minutes of infamy and too-harsh-for-her-makeup camera lights is solely to make up for not having anyone toss a hotdog down that hallway in a very L O N G time. :-/

  7. Gloria Allred probably knows her law suit is bunk.

    Correction: Gloria Allred certainly knows her lawsuit is bunk.

    The stunt she pulled against Schwarzenegger back in 2003 and the facts put down by Allahpundit show this clearly. Which brings me back to my earlier comment:

    I suggest the time has come to take the Allred bitch out. I know that the overwhelming majority of conservatives and Republicans would never consider actually killing the woman, but our scruples should only go so far when dealing with her ilk. Find some serious dirt on her — or make some up — and then see to it that it sticks.

    Allred and her leftist ilk have no scruples whatsoever. They’ll do whatever they think they can get away with. (I’m convinced they’d gladly murder their political opponents if they thought they’d get away with it.)

    The time has come to stop them from getting away with it. Give the miserable bitch a good taste of her own medicine. Go after any way possible. Look into her business dealings and her personal life. Go after her law liscence. Don’t stop until she’s been neutralized.

    And I don’t want to see any whining about this here: the lefties started this bullshit. Now we should end it.

  8. […] is: Gloria Allred isn’t pushing this lawsuit out of concern for Whitman’s former maid, says B. Daniel Blatt at Gay Patriot. She’s a longtime “Jerry Brown supporter” out to sabotage his opponent. Allred […]
