If anyone had any doubt that Jerry Brown’s campaign advertising would omit the obvious comparison between the current governor and Meg Whitman, that was erased today with this new ad. Word for word, we see Arnold and Meg spout the same platitudes that mean absolutely nothing specific at all. It’s a terrific ad – let’s hope the Brown campaign gets it seen far and wide. Arnold’s mired in the 20s, so anything to tie Meg to him will help Jerry’s campaign pull away from her at the end, as he appears to be doing.

Despite recent polls indicating major support for candidates who could provide an alternative to the Democrats or Republicans, incidents against candidates running in the 2010 midterm election continue to persist. One of the most recent incidents is the arrest of California gubernatorial candidate Laura Wells.

Wells had been barred from participating in the event, which was billed as an “eco-friendly debate” by sponsors.

I like this ad the best of all the anti-Meg ads this season.
What do you think?

A former Whitman nanny, who herself had trouble getting paid by and receiving her tax documents from the Harsh-Whitman household after only two months of employment, says she “totally believe[s]” Nicandra Diaz Santillan about being employed illegally by the California GOP gubernatorial candidate for nine years.

Los Angeles Times columnist Steve Lopez, who may or may not be joking when he writes that “the more I see Meg Whitman in action, the more I find myself rooting for her to become the next governor of California,” has engaged a polygraph expert to administer the lie detector test Meg Whitman says she’ll take to prove she’s telling the truth — whatever today’s truth is — about her hiring, and firing, of her Mexican housekeeper Nicandra Diaz Santillan. Pop yer popcorn, folks.

Immigration attorney Greg Siskind has examined copies of the I-9 and employee application completed by Harsh/Whitman housekeeper Nicandra Diaz Santillan, with this finding: the employer (Whitman) never signed the paperwork I-9 employment form, making her claim that she examined the paperwork and found it acceptable to be unfounded. There’s no way for Meg Whitman to claim she ever saw the paperwork, as required by law, since neither she — nor her husband — ever signed the I-9, as required by law.

In a stunning display of her inability to take accountability for her own actions, California GOP gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman attempted in her debate with Jerry Brown (to be broadcast on Univision this afternoon at 4pm) to shift the blame to her opponent for the scandal that erupted earlier this week over her nine years’ of illegal employment and related exploitation of her undocumented housekeeper, Nicandra Diaz Santillan.

Jerry Brown hit the airwaves and internet today with this new ad questioning Meg Whitman’s character. It talks more about her service on the Goldman Sachs board, and not at all about her illegal employment of an undocumented housekeeper, but the Gloria Allred press conference charges resonate through the ad, which concludes, “Shouldn’t Character Matter?”
