According to the current witch trial initiated by Gloria Allred, the answer is "YES!!!!". At first there was no proof that Meg Whitman lied about knowingly hiring an illegal immigrant as her housekeeper, but then the smoking gun came out: the LETTER. I found a copy of the "incriminating" letter from the Social Security Administration here. It's surprisingly straightforward and easy to read. Basically, it shows that the Whitman's complied with the law in every way (Although they were given the false SSN by the housekeeper). It does not prove, however that Meg Whitman does not practice witchcraft, so the trial continues. Read it for yourself (or just read the bold sections):
"We are writing to you about your Wage and Tax Statement (W-2) for the employee shown below... We can't put these earnings on the employee's Social Security record until the name and Social Security number you reported agree with our records....
"The reasons the reported information doesn't agree with our records may include, but are not limited to:
This letter does not imply that you or your employee intentionally provided incorrect information about the employee's name or SSN. It is not a basis, in and of itself, for you to take any adverse action against the employee, such as a laying off, suspending, firing, or discriminating against the individual. Any employer that uses the information in this letter to justify taking adverse action against an employee may violate state or federal law and be subject to legal consequences. Moreover, this letter makes no statement about your employee's immigration status."
