Greta Van Susteren Cross-Examines Gloria Allred About the Meg Whitman Housekeeper Controversy (VIDEO)

Whether on not Meg Whitman knew that her longtime housekeeper was an illegal immigrant has become a crucial issue in her race against Jerry Brown for California governor.

Camera-happy attorney Gloria Allred, who brought former Whitman maid Nicky Diaz into the public spotlight, appeared on 'On The Record With Greta Van Susteren' (weekdays, 10 PM ET on Fox News) and tried to make the case that Whitman was aware of Diaz's undocumented status.

Not only did Van Susteren, who is also a lawyer, disagree with Allred's argument, but she made the case that the evidence Allred was citing proved the exact opposite of what Allred was claiming it proved.

"This is almost delusional . . . this is where you'd get barbecued in court," Van Susteren explained to Allred, waving a copy of a letter from the Social Security Administration to the Whitman family that questioned the social security number Diaz had provided them. "It has (Whitman's) husband's handwriting on it. Her handwriting is not on it. And it says, 'Nicky . . . please check on this, thanks."

"This doesn't show Meg Whitman knows (that her housekeeper was undocumented.) It shows her husband was confused by it," Van Susteren concluded.

We're not lawyers, and Judge Judy wasn't available for comment, so we're not sure where about the legal points being debated here. Then again, whether or not Allred's charges would hold up in a court of law probably doesn't matter much in the court of public opinion.
