“We’ve got to focus – we’ve got to create jobs, cut spending, and invest in fixing our educational system,” Meg says.Just one problem: Educate 'em? She can't raise them. Think she shoved Griffith Rutherford Harsh V a few times, perhaps giving him the idea it's perfectly fine to break a woman's ankle if she says "doodie" about your fucking frat?
Meg Whitman's eldest son is named Griffith Rutherford Harsh V. In 2006, when he was 21, he was arrested on felony battery charges after he broke a woman's ankle at a bar in Palo Alto.Do you want the mother of these two assholes running your state, Californians?
According to police and court records unearthed by Gawker, the fight happened when 22-year-old Valerie Sanchez said "fuck your fraternity" to Griff and knocked his hat off his head. Later, according to Sanchez:
Griff "pushed" her "with two open hands on her chest and shoulder area." She fell down and felt her right ankle "snap." A nearby security guard witnessed the event and corroborated Valerie's version of the events.Whitman bailed him out (with a $25,000 cashier's check) and, a year later, charges were dismissed. No one is willing or able to explain why. This seems perhaps more serious than shoving someone over a Second Life dispute.
(Younger Whitman son Will Harsh is notable primarily for the time he used the "n-word.")
