Meg Whitman’s two sons have not so good impression
Her two sons have earned a notorious reputation in college for being spoiled brats and engaging in delinquent behavior. It has also been noted that their billionaire mother has several times used her power and money to shield off her sons from the crimes they committed.
Whitman once made a generous donation of $30 million dollars to Princeton University who used it to open a residential living complex. Many people questioned the donation as her sons went on to study at Princeton.
Whitman has bailed her sons out a couple of times. In 2006, her eldest son, Griff was arrested for breaking a woman’s ankle. Whitman swiftly appeared to pay the $25000 bail and charges were mysteriously dropped against him.
Also, added to the felony battery is sexual assault. Her son had been accused of raping a fellow student. An investigation was pursued by the college and dealt internally within the college with Griff not facing any charges in the end. Other brushes with the law include buying alcohol with fake documentation.
Whitman’s youngest son, William was no different. During his time in the college, he also faced charges for altercations with a professor. Now, Griff is working for Solamere Capital and Will has also graduated from college.
