It’s solid, simple, and important reporting from Ferris—something CalBuzz says deserves “mega-kudos” for “digging into the tantalizing, still-unanswered question of how eMeg maid Nicky Diaz found her way to media-savvy Gloria Allred.” With Diaz Santillan involved in a pending appeal seeking legal status, there will no doubt be more digging into the forces behind her. It will be interesting to see if it reveals who’s pulling the strings, if there are strings at all.
