Lou Dobbs Employed Undocumented Workers

7 Oct

Uh-oh.   
 
In Lou Dobbs’s heyday at CNN, when he commanded more than 800,000 viewers and a reported $6 million a year for “his fearless reporting and commentary,” in the words of former CNN president Jonathan Klein, the host became notorious for his angry rants against “illegal aliens.” But Dobbs reserved a special venom for the employers who hire them, railing against “the employer who is so shamelessly exploiting the illegal alien and so shamelessly flouting US law” and even proposing, on one April 2006 show, that “illegal employers who hire illegal aliens” should face felony charges.
 snip…
Based on a yearlong investigation, including interviews with five immigrants who worked without papers on his properties, The Nation and the Investigative Fund at The Nation Institute have found that Dobbs has relied for years on undocumented labor for the upkeep of his multimillion-dollar estates and the horses he keeps for his 22-year-old daughter, Hillary, a champion show jumper.
The article also mentioned Lou Dobbs is scheduled to address the Virginia Tea Party Bagger Convention the day after tomorrow.  One must wonder how that’s going to work out.   Perhaps Lou can get pointers on how to handle this unforseen disclosure from Meg Whitman.    But then again, maybe not.
