Second Meg Whitman nanny "had to threaten to take her to the IRS"


eMeg, eMeg, eMeg, what are we gonna do with you?

Oh I know! Elect Jerry Brown!

Enter Nanny #2, Jill Armstrong, stage... left:

"I totally believe" Diaz, Armstrong, 59, of Mountain View, said in an interview with The Chronicle. "I know the family. I know what it was like."
Oh, and in case anyone is rolling their eyes, Nanny Jill can prove she worked for  eMeg and Griff Harsh during the summer of '98.  She's got the W-2 form.

Nanny Jill said she quit her job after a couple of months because it was demanding and difficult.

eMeg? Difficult? Surely Nanny Jill jests. (Say that three times really fast, I dare you.)

"I had enough," she said in an interview, describing trouble getting paid what she believed she was owed, and challenges in dealing with household chores and in supervising Whitman's two young sons. [...]

Armstrong said she came forward because she believed Whitman viewed domestic help as "disposable."
Why, what a coinkydink! I believe Whitman views her income the same way.

Nanny Jill called eMeg "cheap".

She also seemed surprised to hear eMeg say that Husband Harsh had trouble remembering that he got a letter from the Social Security Administration.

"Harsh would not forget something like that," Armstrong said. "He had his thumb on everything."

He must have had some big thumb.

After a couple of months, Nanny Jill told eMeg she was pulling a Palin and quitting, that she couldn't "handle it anymore."

But her biggest gripe was after she left, months after, when she realized she hadn't received a tax form from eMeg. She let her know she needed a W-2.

So of course eMeg, being the efficient businesswoman she is, got right on it.


Or not.

So Nanny Jill "had to threaten to take her to the IRS". But eMeg's accountant said he needed "the numbers" and "the hours".

"That's Meg's responsibility," Armstrong said she replied. "Isn't she supposed to have all that written down?"

Gee, if eMeg can't keep track of her own domestic paperwork, how in the world will she be able to handle being governor of a state the size of California?
