Meg Whitman offers to take polygraph test on maid charges

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) – Meg Whitman, California's Republican nominee for governor, denied Thursday ever seeing a letter from the federal government questioning her former housekeeper's Social Security number.

Whitman said she would be willing to take a polygraph test, to prove that she was "really stunned" to learn just last year that Nicky Diaz Santillan was an undocumented worker.

"If it comes to that, I would be delighted to do that," Whitman said at a news conference.

LBJ aide Liz Carpenter dies at 89

(CNN) - Liz Carpenter, a Texas journalist who became a presidential press aide in the Lyndon Johnson White House, died Saturday at the age of 89, according to the Johnson family.

Carpenter served as an aide and press spokesman to Johnson when he was vice president, but she was named press secretary to Lady Bird Johnson when she became the first lady.

"Liz was Mother and Daddy's dawn to midnight 'can do' supporter," Luci Johnson, the president's daughter, said in a written statement. "She had boundless imagination, a rare gift for words, limitless curiosity, a rich sense of humor, a fear of flying and practically no fear of anything else."

Carpenter died at an Austin, Texas hospital of natural causes Saturday, according to Tom Johnson, the former CNN chairman who served with Carpenter in the LBJ administration.

Ty 'retires' controversial Malia and Sasha dolls

Ty, the maker of Beanie Babies, has retired two new Ty Girlz dolls named Marvelous Malia and Sweet Sasha.
Ty, the maker of Beanie Babies, has retired two new Ty Girlz dolls named Marvelous Malia and Sweet Sasha.

(CNN) - Controversy forced the withdrawal of two more figures from the public scene Tuesday, but these were not named Daschle or Killefer.

Ty Inc. - the company that brought the world Beanie Babies - bowed to pressure from the White House and "retired" dolls named Sweet Sasha and Marvelous Malia Tuesday.

The 12-inch-tall dolls, which bear a resemblance to the first family's Sasha, 7, and Malia, 10, were introduced last month as part of the Ty Girlz collection.

Watch: First daughter dolls?

First Lady Michelle Obama's press secretary said it was "inappropriate to use young private citizens for marketing purposes."

While the dolls still appeared on the Ty Web site Tuesday, a red banner above them read "Retired."
