    Why Isn’t The Left Screaming At Gloria Allred?

    Why Isn’t The Left Screaming At Gloria Allred?

    Gloria Allred is doing more to drive illegal immigrants underground and to target Latinos for racial profiling than anything the State of Arizona has even thought of doing.

    Allred dropped a late-September surprise on Meg Whitman based on the allegation that Whitman did not do enough to verify the status of her Latino housekeeper.  Whitman, by all accounts, obtained the usual required documentation when she hired the housekeeper.

    The thrust of Allred’s attack is that after Whitman or her husband received a letter from the IRS alerting them to a possible discrepancy in the housekeeper’s social security number, Whitman did not do enough to follow up.  Instead, according to Allred, Whitman’s husband gave the letter to the housekeeper and left it to the housekeeper to clear it up.  (Note:  This is Allred’s account, it is not yet clear that this account will be verified.)

    Allred may be right that the employer (in this case Whitman and her husband) should not have left it up to the housekeeper to clear up the problem, and should have been more suspicious.  Had Whitman or her husband followed up, the housekeeper would have been fired several years ago.

    Call Allred a strict constructionist when it comes to the immigration laws, just like the people who are excoriated by the left as racists for seeking enforcement of federal immigration laws. 

    The message Allred is sending is that if you are going to hire an immigrant, not only must you dot every federal immigration law  “i” and cross every federal immigration law “t”, you also must not trust the immigrant if a problem arises.  At least not if you want to run for public office.

    So why isn’t the left excoriating Allred?  Why isn’t Allred being called the most vile names usually reserved for Tea Party supporters or Republicans?

    Because this time political correctness and the use of the race card would not help to defeat a Republican running for Governor of California.

    Update:  Allahpundit has a good explanation of why Allred’s allegation about the social security discrepancy does not amount to much.

    The other interesting aspect, quite apart from politics, is Allred’s willingness to expose her client to legal harm even though the client does not have any meaningful legal claim.  This is not a case where Allred’s client is a crime victim who comes forward to the police.  There does not appear to be a violation of any law by Whitman, but there does appear to be both immigration and possibly criminal violations by Allred’s client, who filed false documents with the government.  By going public as she has, Allred has exposed her client to significant legal jeopardy in order to score publicity and political points for Allred.

    Update 10-1-2010:  Mark Levin has a must listen-to interview with Allred.  Allred refused to answer whether her client forged social security documents.  Levin makes a point similar to mine about Allred exposing her client to legal jeopardy.  At 13:00 of the audio, Allred dances around and evades answering the question of whether she has been in touch with any intermediaries from the Brown campaign.

    >>"there does appear to be both immigration and possibly criminal violations by Allred's client, who filed false documents with the government."

    No "possibly" about it. Giving a false SSN is a federal felony, punishable by u to five years in jail and a quarter million dollar fine.

    Of course hell will freeze over before the feds actually prosecute illegals for this crime.

    Even with the purported "hand written note" on the back, It still doesn't jibe that the Whitmans ever received the letter. Most people, when they receive any type of communication from the government, either take care of it themselves or pass it on to the professionals that work for them. The idea that they would just hand it to the maid and say "take care of this", is just stupid. I'm willing to bet good money, the letter was intercepted by the maid, and the note on the back isn't Whitman's husband's. It was simply placed their to give the maid some reason to have the Whitman's mail in her possession.

    I live in the S.F. Bay Area and have to force myself to watch news coverage of this "SCANDAL!" because I instantly knew how they were going to spin it; Whitman's a hypocrite because she said in a debate the previous night that employers should be dealt with if they hire illegals, and she should have been willing to go beyond due diligence and demand enough evidence to prove that her housekeeper's papers were bogus.

    That, despite the fact that just a few months ago, the MSM worked from the angle that SB 1070 empowered Arizona law enforcement per se to do what they all agreed it deep-down really wanted to do: Scrounge for any excuse to round up brown-skinned people for the purpose of deportation. People who didn't have the right look about them, we were led to believe, would be detained for either frivolous or non-existent reasons (while taking their kids out for ice cream) so that their documents could be viewed, deemed suspicious, and ICE could be summoned to dump them back over the border (even if they in reality were American citizens).

    Allred herself — as I wrote in a recent blog post "Memo to Inglorious Barrister Gloria Allred: Enough Already!" — is following her normal pattern:
    *****************************

    [F]or the purpose of feathering her beachfront nest, Allred often portrays ought-to-be mature adult women [as] innocent, trusting, foolish little girls. She does what poverty pimps like Sharpton and Jackson also do: They call the media hordes on their speed dial, trot out before cameras people that too often bear much (if not most) of the responsibility for the predicaments they find themselves in, and demand the government and/or the general public treat them with $ympathy. It matters not if they are worldly, corrupt, liars, or hypocrites, the people standing in the background with that familiar starving waif expression are demanding justice that jingles in their pockets, with a healthy percentage to be taken by the likes of Allred of Arc.

    *****************************
    That August 2010 piece was in the wake of a weak interview of Allred by ABC News' David Wright. Allred was lavishing in her estimated $10 million out-of-court settlement with Tiger Woods in exchange for the sealing of the loose lips of skank-to-the-stars Rachel Uchitel, and Allred still seems focused on duplicating that feat with washed-up porn actress Joslyn James. James, Allred wants us to believe, was a "victim." Victim of what? She "fell in love" with an international superstar who treated her the way she used to be treated (and she treated others) for a living? Similarly, Diaz is a "victim," says Gloria. Why? Because rather than being turned over to INS and deported to Mexico, she held a normally minimum-wage job for nearly a decade at the rate of $23/hr?

    In the imbedded ABC News video at the link above, you can see how — true to her sadly successful playbook — Allred was grasping the hand of the bawling "victim" James as she read a prepared statement, just like she did this week with "victim" Diaz. Allred knows the power (and the value) of a woman's tears, and has made a mint wielding their ability to cloud people's intelligence and judgment. (For more, see Delilah: Judges 16:4-20.) Allred didn't get to where she is because she's a dummy, but she clearly believes the rest of us are. It's a shame so many prove her right.

    Finding a way to concisely explain to headline-scanning know-nothings why they should chew and slowly digesting Allred's nonsense instead of swallowing and regurgitating it is frustrating and tiring. But I take it upon myself because the alternative is allowing it to spread. Thanks for your help, Professor.

    Is anyone seriously shocked that Gloria Allred is an opportunistic cancer to America?

    Allred got dismantled by Greta tonight. Perhaps not as well as Sarah Palin dresses a moose, but close.
