Woman Claims She Worked Illegally for Nevada Gov Candidate

Four days before early voting begins in Nevada, a woman is claiming she was an illegal immigrant when she worked as a housekeeper in gubernatorial candidate Brian Sandoval’s home 13 years ago.

Sandoval in a statement Monday denied ever knowing the woman, a Reno resident. Sandoval spokesperson Mary-Sarah Kinner this morning told Battle ‘10 Sandoval has nothing more to say on the matter.

“Brian and Kathleen do not know this person, “said Kinner. “Obviously, this is another desperate and dishonest attack by Rory Reid’s failing campaign. It is further proof that Rory will say anything to get elected.”

The Guatemalan immigrant, Anna Padilla, told KLAS-TV she was hired to clean Sandoval’s house in October 1996. She claims the Sandovals did not ask her for a work permit or mention the need to pay social security taxes when she was hired to cleaned his house.

Padilla, who has since obtained legal status, says she illegally came to the United States from Guatemala in 1986 and worked as a housekeeper under the name Martiza Gomez.

“The checks were signed by Mrs. Kathleen and the checks had Brian Sandoval and Kathleen Sandoval’s name, address and phone,” Padilla told KLAS-TV.

Padilla claims she was paid $40 to clean the Sandoval house every Monday, and says she stopped working for the Sandovals in 1997.

But Padilla has no documented proof of those checks.

She told KLAS she was excited to learn about Sandoval’s candidacy until she discovered his tough stance on immigration enforcement. ”If he (will) not support the illegals, why is he hiring me at that time?” she asked.

The Rory Reid campaign claims Padilla contacted them by email.

Another Pollster Sees a Trump Win

The Trafalgar Group’s Robert Cahaly is an outlier among pollsters in that he thinks President Trump will carry Michigan, Pennsylvania, or both, and hence be reelected with roughly 280 electoral votes.
