Opinion:Insult to Injury


Thomas Benigno / Bilingual Weekly Contributor

The stunning allegations by Meg Whitman‘s house keeper, Ms. Nicky Diaz, is that Ms. Whitman knew that Ms, Diaz was a non documented worker. Now Ms. Whitman says it was her husbands fault, and that he didn’t follow through with the necessary paper work.

No one can say for sure who’s at fault. It was that the paper work was messed up, but it was Whitman’s responsibility to see to it that the documentation was completed.  It was also the Temp Agency that should have caught the mistake in the beginning. Basically, Ms. Diaz was represented by the Temp agency.

The biggest tragedy in this whole matter is that Meg Whitman is an embarrassment to the Republican party which she represents. Being a member of the party, it would seem that Whitman’s oversight is much more serious than most believe. To keep pace with the Republican party platform is more important than all the money put up by Whitman.  Now to get back to Ms. Whitman’s situation, she might just have cost the Republican Party the Governors seat.

Some might say that Ms. Whitman was a plan to kill the chances of a Republican Governor in 2010 by allowing this mess to occur. Some might even say that she, and one time Governor Brown, conspired to throw the election in two ways. One way was to kill any chance for another republican candidate to get the nomination, by Ms. Whitman spending so much money at the beginning of her campaign in the primary.

The other way was to make sure that the Ms. Diaz issue was done after the nomination was made by the party, and now 30 days before the election to throw the election over to Jerry Brown. It’s quite simple to do this so that the state workers and the unions would make sure that Brown would win, by the negative news of Ms Diaz’s allegations. I had mentioned to a friend that the Latino‘s make up about 32% of the population in California, and about 20% of those are republicans. So if the state has 42 million people, which means that there is around 12 million in California that are Latino. That would mean that there might be about 5 million Latino voters in California, and out of that figure about 20% are republicans, plus or minus a few points.  That is roughly 1.2 million conservative Latino votes, not enough to allow Whitman to win in November.

Now, if we compile the low turnout in California’s primary, Brown might win by a landslide. We will see in a few days.
