LOS ANGELES (AP) — Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman is telling South Los Angeles metal workers that her Democratic opponent is lying about her stance on immigration.

Whitman told Spanish-speaking workers on Thursday that Jerry Brown lied when he said she supports Arizona’s tough new law to curb illegal immigration. But Whitman also says she doesn’t support allowing illegals to get driver’s licenses.

Whitman has said she supports Arizona’s right to enact its own laws but would not sign such a law in California. Of Brown, she said, “He’s just out there telling lies.”

Whitman has been courting the state’s Latino community in the run-up to the Nov. 2 election and told workers that she cannot win without Hispanic support.

    Meg Whitman is the worse of the 2 evils. I hope she loses. She’s a full on LIAR. She tells the Mexicans one thing & everyone else something completely different.

      You obviously don’t remember when brown was in office . He was a total disaster and I for one will not let California go back to that!

    When the Brits left the others to fend for them selves they taught us to divide and rule.
    Legal vs ill legal
    Blacks vs Brown
    Yellow vs others.
    Why can not the leaders say waht is right and stick to the message.

    Former Governor Jerry Brown (remember his nickname “Moonbeam”) is a career liar and he is really good at it. All I can say is that if it is Brown flush it.

    Its like having to choose between herpes or gonorrhea…you can fight over which one is which, they are both stains to most California voters.

    Meg Whitman couldn’t raise two sons properly. That says a lot about her character.

    1. Darrell Griffin says:

      This has noting to do with her abillities of governor. Today society has more influence on kids than parents. Would you also take credit for all of your kids accomplishments. Hopefully not. Eventually everyone is responsible for their own actions and can not blame their parents.

    Darrell says “IF IT IS BROWN FLUSH IT.”
