I went back and re-listened to the 8 minute long news story from CBS station Channel 8 (Las Vegas) about Congressman Gibbons (now running for Governor of Nevada) multiple times to be sure I got this right.
The undocumented woman living in his home came with the house. Gibbons bought her with the house. Participated in the sale of a human being.
She was illegal and scared. Of course she stayed to clean up after the Gibbons, where else did she have to go. They paid her $4 an hour. They knew they were doing something illegal, told her to hide in the basement when anyone came over.
There was an episode on Desperate Housewives about this, but that housewife, with the woman hidden in her home, went to jail.
The Republican Congressman has said to have been:
* paying Sandoval only $4 per hour, less than the $5.15 per hour federal minimum wage
* knowingly employing an undocumented alien
* paying her 'under the table'
* and failing to pay employer taxes
The 8 minute long, CBS station, Channel 8 (Las Vegas) news story is posted at YouTube and has been seen over 23,000 times in the last 2 days. Good reporting. If you haven't seen it already, watch it. This is what real journalism is all about.
National story, hope CBS nationally follows up on the good work of it's affiliate.
