The California Nurses Association opened a new battle Friday in its war on Republican gubernatorial nominee Meg Whitman, promising to put thousands of nurses and patients on her doorstep next month. The “Nurses Won’t Be Pushed Around” campaign – starting with 10,000 posters, to be followed next month by radio and TV ads — is a not-so-subtle reference to the $200,000 settlement that eBay reportedly paid to a former employee who had claimed Whitman, then the company’s CEO, shoved her during a 2007 altercation.
