"They are. They are doing that here in the United States. American scientific companies are crossbreeding humans and animals and coming up with mice with fully functioning brains." -- Delaware Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell on the O'Reilly Factor in 2007.
The lefty main stream media hyenas and desperate Delawarian Dems had a hearty laugh, not to mention a field day skewering the long-shot Senate hopeful after unearthing this steaming pile of quotation from Ms. O'Donnell's past. Ah, but wait! O'Donnell may have actually been privy to something back then that these sniping smugsters weren't. Read on...
"Here I come to save the day!"
Enter Gloria Allred a.k.a Gloria Allrat, camera magnet, Progressive operative and self-proclaimed attorney de choix to the denizens of The Island of Misfit Toys. And, to think, the timing couldn't have been better.
Just as looney lib Congressman Alan Grayson of Florida was giddily ironing his tuxedo while whistling the theme song from Psycho in preparation for this year's "Slimiest Political Dirty Tricks Awards", or "Dickies", for his "Taliban Dan" hatchet job on Republican opponent Dan Webster, Allrat scurried out from her hole in the wall to debut her own feculant entry. We'll call it "Maleficent Meg".
On Wednesday, the always rapacious spotlight seeking Los Angeles attorney lobbed a bombshell accusation at California Republican gubernatorial candidate, Meg Whitman, just thirty-two days shy of election day in November. Allrat alleges Whitman knowingly employed illegal immigrant Nicandra "Nicky" Diaz Santillan as a housekeeper from 2000 to 2009, then suddenly fired her without cause when it became politically expedient to do so. The story goes that former eBay CEO Whitman and her husband, Dr. Griffith Harsh, discovered her illegal status back in 2003 when the Social Security Administration sent a letter to the couple red-flagging Diaz Santillan for having a questionable social security number. Turns out back in 2000, Diaz Santillan fraudulently obtained a social security card and California driver's license so as to surreptitiously dupe the employment agency she worked for, who in turn unwittingly referred Santillan Diaz to Whitman and Harsh for legal employment. Allrat also alleges Whitman and Harsh subsequently lied about finding out of Diaz Santillan's illegal status via letter back in 2003 and only fired the Mexican national last year after Whitman decided to run for governor, and that running on a tough-on-illegal-immigration platform while knowingly employing an illegal immigrant might not sit too well with the electorate.
On Thursday, Allrat produced the promised "smoking gun" Social Security Administration letter for all the drooling media to see. Not quite the "gotcha!" moment Allrat had built the unveiling up to be, nonetheless, the letter did appear to have a handwritten note on it in Harsh's hand saying, "Nicky, please check this. Thanks."
Allrat has filed a claim in a California court against Whitman and Harsh on behalf of Diaz Santillan, claiming the rich and powerful couple heartlessly "abused" her client by withholding overtime pay (Diaz Santillan was pulling in a cool $23/hour -- good work if you can find it!) and not reimbursing her for mileage when Diaz Santillan used her own car to run errands for Whitman.
Wow! What a gulag-like existence that must have been for that poor wittle-bitty illegal housekeeper. Mexican slave smugglers could learn a thing or two from this ruthless pair.
Methinks I smell a rat -- or maybe it's a human-brained mouse. Can anyone say, "Deja vu?"
Why yes, this is the same Gloria Allrat who slung sewage at then-candidate Arnold Schwarzenegger back during the 2003 gubernatorial campaign. A that time, Allrat dug up a willing rube who falsely accused Ahnold of "outrageous acts" of sexual harassment while on a movie set. Allrat's alleged "victim" was a former bodybuilder who said the future Governator accosted her in a trailer, lifted up her shirt and took a picture of her breasts then posted the photo on the ceiling of the trailer for all to see. However, the specious claim was eventually summarily flushed down the proverbial toilet by the courts for the unsubstantiated turd it was proven to be.
Now, it's time for "Revenge of the Turd" or "Rodent Turd II".
The names have changed but the game's still the same. Allrat is a despicable political hack and a smear merchant. She's tried this same ruse before only to fail miserably. But that never seems to stop a desperate, flailing liberal.
Many probing questions need to be put to Allrat by an inquisitive media (yeah, right), but I wouldn't suggest holding your breath. For instance, who referred Diaz Santillan to Allrat and when? What direct or indirect contact has Allrat had with the Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown's campaign? Is Allrat subject to disciplinary action by the California Bar Association for violating Rule 3-200(A) of the California Rules of Professional Conduct, which states, "A member shall not seek, accept, or continue employment if the member knows or should know that the objective of such employment is: To bring an action, conduct a defense, assert a position in litigation, or take an appeal, without probable cause and for the purpose of harassing or maliciously injuring a person."? Is Allrat's illegal immigrant client aware that Allrat has exposed her to possible crimes and probable deportation? Have representatives of ICE or the DOJ contacted Allrat yet? Is Allrat getting paid by her client or a third party, or is it being litigated pro bono? If it's a third party, who's "Daddy Warbucks"? I strongly recommend you listen to Mark Levin's riveting interview with Allrat on his website . Just click on the audio tab to find the interview. Mr. Levin "McGriddles" Allrat with the focussed, probative questioning you'd expect from one of the country's pre-eiminent Constitutional attorneys. It's worth a listen to hear Allrat try to wriggle free from Levin's steel trap-like brain.
Hopefully, as was the case with Schwarzenegger, after Allrat's false and transparent accusations have been shown to be what they are -- mouse crap -- she will twitch her nose, switch her bony tail and scurry back to her little hole in the wall -- that is until it's time for the next election cycle and the anticipated release of "Rodent Turd III".
I guess Allrat hasn't learned the first rule of movie making, or sliming for that matter... Sequels are never as good as the original.
And after Christine O'Donnell pummels the "Bearded Marxist" in Delaware and Meg Whitman hands "Crazy Jerry" his backside come November 2nd, hopefully they'll enjoy the last laugh.
