I'm sure that great Job Creator will point out that in our wonderful and sacred Free Market Economy, if she was unhappy with this she could go and work somewhere else.
 
2012-02-29 03:42:21 PM  
Well, they did create a job, for God's sake.

To be fair, it was a walk-in closet.

This is just another case of big government overstepping it's bounds and trampling on the rights of working Americans.

Those can be pretty big. My girlfriend's walk-in closet is bigger than my first apartment! The lack of a bathroom makes it less than habitable after a few days though.

Simple solution to this case:

Give the slave the whole property, as well as all of the woman's monetary holdings. Give the slave U.S. citizenship.

Revoke the woman's citizenship and send her to India.

You want a farking caste system, you coont?? Here you go.

Do you know how we pay to live in a walk in closet in Manhattan!?!
 
2012-02-29 06:21:31 PM  
Awww...the magistrate, let the slaver go free without bail...and apparently without a mugshot.

Meanwhile, dirty little 'V.M.' will be deported as a vile greedy illegal alien.

YAY 1%!

No, its OK because they are rich. If me or you had someone living in the hole in our basement we'd end up in PMITA prison.

Rexford, a hamlet 20 miles north of Albany.

Okay, that does count as upstate.

Was ready for TFA to be about Nyack or Pound Ridge or something.

I know, right. If she's an R, you'll have to find a reason to support her. If she's a D, you can just point out that she's a vile twunt.
 
2012-02-29 07:42:27 PM  
Based on the statute in the complaint, this is the massive penalty the slaver can face:

Any person or entity which engages in a pattern or practice of violations of subsection (a)(1)(A) or (a)(2) of this section shall be fined not more than $3,000 for each unauthorized alien with respect to whom such a violation occurs, imprisoned for not more than six months for the entire pattern or practice, or both, notwithstanding the provisions of any other Federal law relating to fine levels.

2012-02-29 07:45:37 PM  
Ain't that the way? Give a person a job that includes a room, food and wages and what do they do? biatch about it. She was making more then she would in her own country and living in a mansion. Just can't get good help anymore.

Do you know how we pay to live in a walk in closet in Manhattan!?!


With money? Sex maybe?
 
2012-02-29 07:47:43 PM  
That place is about a mile away from me, and has quite the past.

Originally, a guy named Albert Lawrence built it when he stole all the assets of the insurance company that bore his name, in order to hide the money.
He took all the company assets, and all the retirement money from his longtime employees, and then declared bankruptcy.
Being bankruptcy courts are not allowed to seize your primary residence, he kind of got away with it.

While the situation was being litigated, he contracted cancer and spent hardly a day in jail.
When he died, his heirs had a very hard time selling it for even close to what it cost.

Later, some middle eastern investor (the employer in the smoking gun story) bought it, and then pretty promptly died in an overloaded small plane that he was joy riding in.
He crashed in the river, about 2000 feet down from the mansion.

If she'd have had to pay her 86 cents an hour, she wouldn't be able to afford her.

Won't somebody please think of the single income household?
 
2012-02-29 07:48:48 PM  
Well, I do know that that place was built and owned by the Lawrence dude who owned the insurance agency that was prominent in the Albany area, but his business went bankrupt in the 90's, so I always wondered who lived in it after he did.

/Just some old info on the house
 
2012-02-29 07:50:08 PM  
She had to sleep in a closet in a bedroom shared by the family's three daughters, the complaint alleges, because "Annie George required that V.M. be near the children at night."

What? The rich don't know about the existence of baby monitors?

Well, if she was a Rep, it would have been in the headline and plastered all over TFA.

So probably not a Rep, unless the reporter was slacking. Which means most likely she is a-political. No way is she a Dem. A Dem would NEVER ever mistreat or abuse an employee.
