Allred Finagles 4-Figure Settlement for Former Whitman Housekeeper

We last mentioned the infamous Gloria Allred when someone (presumably kidding) decided to offer her for sale on eBay. No doubt the tongue-in-cheek auction listing was spurred by Allred's antics in connection with her representation of Nicky Diaz Santillan, former housekeeper to defeated California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman.

Well, if she so desires, Allred can now claim victory in that matter. Whitman and her husband have agreed to pay Santillan $5,500 in back wages. As Aaron Worthing, guest posting on Patterico's Pontifications, notes, that will be cold comfort to Santillan if she ends up being deported because her illegal status was revealed as part of her publicity spree.

Worthing, in fact, calls for a California bar investigation of Allred, for allegedly manipulating Santillan to satisfy Allred's own cravings for attention. We'll see if Allred gets listed on eBay again, with the price jacked up because of her latest "win."
