Desperate Democrats looking to pull out all the stops are throwing illegal immigrants under the bus and sowing ugly seeds for the future.
Feminist phony, Gloria Allred, in a two for one, sets back the cause of women and illegal immigrants in one sweeping, contrived move. Allred offered up "Darling Nicky", once the trusted, well-compensated housekeeper to the ridiculously generous Meg Whitman. Nicky is now the lying, overpaid illegal, backstabbing Benedict Arnold thanks to the camera-chasing Allred. We might expect that Allred, the self-styled feminist advocate would be gushing over the idea of putting a strong woman in the California Governor's mansion. Instead, she manipulated the vulnerable "Nicky" into putting her criminal status on the line on the alter of the Jerry Brown campaign. Just where is Moonbeam Jerry Brown when justice is called for? He is riding the politics of personal destruction wave into the Governor's mansion. But Allred's choosing a leftist male over a vulnerable woman is old hat phony feminism in the leftist playbook. The other "collateral" damage in the tawdry tactic is far more insidious.
Nicky Diaz, is now in legal jeopardy. At Allred's urging, she has now confessed to lying on federal documents and conning the Whitmans, honorable, pillars of the State of California into hiring her. Nicky is somehow now indignant that the Whitmans, upon discovering her status, chose to terminate their contractor agreement. Diaz faces an uncertain future now. What is not uncertain, is that all illegal immigrants, including political refugees, are now fair game in political smears, thanks the Democrats. The new tactic; confusing the illegal immigration debate to smear Republicans. The tactic in California is now being attempted in America's Heartland.
Missouri Senate candidate Robin Carnahan launched an "illegal" immigrant attack of her own yesterday. "Congressman Blunt hired an illegal worker and used his official office and Washington connections" to try to assist her immigration process, Corey Platt, a senior adviser at the Missouri Democratic Party said in a conference call with reporters. Really? Lets break that statement down, shall we?
Did you catch the wicked, depraved twist? More on that in a moment. The Democrat opposition research team has uncovered an alleged "offense" from 20 years ago. No statute of limitations here. The Blunts presumably hired the woman to do some work for a short time. The facts are in dispute, but it appears the woman worked less than six months. Democrats say she was a domestic worker, the campaign says she worked at the church. What they are doing is making an erroneous and egregious comparison.
In both cases, Whitman and Blunt, the argument is that unknowingly hiring a domestic worker is an offense that should speak to fitness to serve. In making this argument, they are comparing corporate interests who knowingly use illegal immigrants to gain an advantage over their competitors to individuals looking for help around their house or church. Nice try.
Worse yet, the second assault by Carnahan on Blunt is that he "used his office" to give aid to the woman described as a Nicaraguan political refugee and help move her paperwork along. Is that not exactly what we want in a politician? He showed compassion on a vulnerable woman, not a wealthy donor, and wrote a letter to make sure she did not fall through bureaucratic cracks. By attempting to turn this act of kindness into a millstone around Blunt's neck, the Carnahan and Brown campaigns are signalling to all Americans that instead of compassion, you better immediate turn in any illegal you suspect or else a political operative might use it against you in the future.
As per usual, these desperate campaigns have launched these attacks in the final hour of their lagging campaigns. Carnahan, is stuck on six points behind.
The bigger question here, is what does Nicky "I am Rosa Parks" have to do with Whitman's fitness to be Governor, or a Nicaraguan refugee with Blunt's fitness to fight Obama in the Senate? Whitman, while building a huge business success story was supposed to hire a private detective to thoroughly vet an agency-provided domestic worker. Blunt, while Secretary of State, showed enough compassion to try to help someone possessing little capability of ever being able to repay the favor. There is no proportionality to these acts and the acts of a for profit enterprise run on the backs of illegals paid below the minimum wage. This is the true aim of illegal immigrant reformers, not using the issue to trash the true immigration reform candidates.
Where is the duplicitous left-wing in all this? Instead of celebrating Blunt and Carnahan for their accomplishments and compassion for vulnerable people, they trash them. In so doing, they have created a Big Brother environment in which one is wise to turn in any suspected illegal and no matter what, give no comfort or quarter to them. In their zeal for short term political gain, the Democrats have put every illegal immigrant in greater jeopardy than 50 Arizona laws. We only hope voters in California and Missouri send Democrats the rebuke they deserve.
