Who’s the happiest woman in the world today? Meg Whitman!
Why? Because she’s no longer the only dumbass celebrity to rail against undocumented workers and employers who hire them – only to be exposed as hiring them herself. Now she has company: Lou Dobbs!
Yes, Lou Dobbs. Who made a big fat living on CNN denouncing illegal immigrants as the scum of the earth. And demanded that employers who hire them be charged with a felony…
Yes, according to The Nation magazine, that very same Lou Dobbs is a big felon himself.
A year-long investigation by The Nation revealed that Dobbs has employed as many as five undocumented workers on his multi-million race horse farms in Vermont and Florida. Others without papers did landscaping and gardening work.
Did Dobbs realize the people working for him were here illegally? Who knows? But one of them told The Nation that Dobbs would sometimes visit with his workers, and speak to them – in Spanish!
Looks like Lou Dobbs broke Illegal Immigration Rule #1: If you’re a politician, or a wannabe politician, and you run around denouncing employers who hire undocumented workers – just make sure you don’t have one, or two, or five – on your own payroll.
That’s my parting shot for today.
