Busted: Anti-Immigrant Zealot Lou Dobbs Hired Illegal Immigrants



Surprise surprise, another rich, anti-illegal immigrant mouthpiece hired illegal immigrants to tend their palatial grounds. An investigative report by The Nation has revealed that CNN host turned Tea Partier Lou 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.” Dobbs had previously been quoted ranting “the illegal employer is the central issue in this entire mess.”

Dobbs still hosts “The Lou Dobbs Show” on the radio. He’d allegedly been planning a run for office, even the presidency. He’d be wise to check out how Meg Whitman fares in the California gubernatorial race — a billionaire who also hired an illegal worker, and subsequently spewed anti-illegal rhetoric on her campaign trail. If Whitman wins next month, it will show Dobbs that it doesn’t matter if you’re a complete hypocrite. All you have to do is talk a good game and lower taxes for rich people and the dullards of this country will eat up your schtick.
