Great take by the Washington Free Beacon’s Lachlan Markay:
“Her firing, which she said violated California employment law, came after weeks of alleged retaliation and harassment by one of her employers, Laura Baxter-Simons, who, the housekeeper claimed, objected to her request for maternity leave.
Baxter-Simons is married to hedge fund tycoon Nathaniel Simons. The two are high-dollar donors to Democratic candidates—though Baxter-Simons has also donated to Republicans—and run a foundation that distributes tens of millions of dollars to left-wing groups each year.
Simons and his wife are the owners of Elan Household, LLC, a company they created to manage household expenses, including salaries and benefits for three housekeepers, at their 6,700 square-foot home in Berkeley.”
