A cornerstone of California’s Republican gubernatorial candidate and billionaire Meg Whitman’s economic platform, is elimination of California’s capital gains tax. If elected and able to abolish the tax that mainly benefits the mega wealthy, Whitman could net some $40 million during a four-year term as governor, according a new report. Now that’s making money the old fashioned Republican way—tax breaks for the super rich.

Meg Whitman truly believes that California is for sale. She has spent a record-breaking $140 million of her own money in an attempt to buy the state. But California isn’t just some eBay item Whitman can bid on.

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.

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.
