The Meg Whitman campaign today gathered a handful of leaders from around California to speak out against Democratic candidate Jerry Brown and Gloria Allred regarding the drama about an alleged hiring of an illegal immigrant.

"These manufactured scandals are what's wrong with politics today. Meg Whitman did what she was supposed to and if Jerry Brown wants to align himself with Gloria Allred instead of talk about the issues that people really care about, then shame on him," said L.A. County Supervisor Don Knabe. "Jerry Brown and his allies are trying to create a political circus in a lawsuit happy society to distract from Brown's stale ideas and 1970's rhetoric. Californians deserve a serious discussion of important issues such as how to live within our means and create new jobs, not more political games."

For what it's worth, Allred, a past Brown supporter, says she's not working with his campaign.
