Meg Whitman’s husband declined to say if it is his handwriting on a 2003 document that would have raised flags about the family housekeeper’s eligibility to work in this country legally.

Dr. Griff Harsh walked wordlessly through the lobby of the Doubletree Guest Suites in Santa Monica, where his wife earlier had a news conference. It was at that news conference that Whitman said neither she nor her husband had seen a letter from the Social Security Administration that said the housekeeper’s name and Social Security number did not match. Shortly after Whitman’s news conference concluded, attorney Gloria Allred held her own news conference, where she unveiled the 2003 document, with handwriting on it that she said was Harsh’s.


Escorted by Whitman campaign senior advisor Henry Gomez, Harsh showed no expression and refused to answer several questions about the letter.
