What's black and white and Allred all over? More news about Meg Whitman's possible scandal! Addressing the continuing controversy over her illegal work status and reported mistreatment, Nicky Diaz Santillan, the former housekeeper of Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman will hold another news conference today at 11 a.m. in attorney Gloria Allred's Los Angeles office.

Santillan claims she was "emotionally and financially abused" during her employment, a theme thinly echoed by Jill Armstrong, a one-time nannywho twelve years ago worked two months for Whitman calling her "cheap" and "demanding."

Whitman believes Santillan is being "manipulated" by Allred to make allegations that are politically motivated and pointed for personal destruction.
