“So I want to say to you, yes, that I have behaved badly sometimes…and to those people that I have offended, I want to say to them I am deeply sorry about that and I apologize…”
–Arnold Schwarzenegger, Earlier Today in Reply to Los Angeles Times Story

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mark A. Popp
Bush Presidential Inaugural, January 20, 2001
Arnold is seen here fondling another ass!

Today, the Los Angeles Times published a story about Arnold’s sexist behavior. Six different women stated that Arnold made unwelcomed sexual advances to them on movie sets from the late 1970’s through the year 2000. The Times conducted and extensive seven-week investigation before publishing the article.

Then, there is the March 2001 Premiere article written by John Connolly. In this article, boorish behavior by Arnold towards women is documented from many different sources. According to the article, during a press junket in Europe he allegedly groped one reporter’s breasts to “check if they were real.” Just for the record, John Connolly and Premiere Magazine were never sued for defamation and the magazine stands by its research for the story.

Sexist and racist? There’s also the Slate article that uncovers Arnold’s close ties to Kurt Waldheim, a widely esteemed former secretary general of the United Nations who was running for president of Austria in March 1986 when it came to light that he had participated in Nazi atrocities during World War II.

According to the same article, in the famed documentary, Pumping Iron, Arnold makes a foolish comment praising Hitler. WTF!? This calls into question all of his fundraising and donations to the Simon Weisenthal center, which now seem very duplicitous. This is proof that money can buy legitimacy even if to this day Arnold has not renounced Waldheim, a Nazi war criminal, publicly. Mind you, this is the same man that is trying to rally the minority vote in California.

After looking past Arnold’s public image, if you are a woman or a minority, you really have no business putting Arnold into office. Not to mention the question of him being qualified to perform the job. Somehow I don’t see Arnold running the State legislature effectively, but maybe that’s just me. You be the judge.

  1. I went to the LA times website and read this article. It sickened me. Absolutely appalling. You need to read the actual LA Times article, not the rehashed, abridged versions on other news resources just outlining the LA Times story.

    Go to http://www.latimes.com

    You have to register on the website to read it but it’s worth it.

    I am never going to another Schwarzenegger movie ever again.

  2. Well, we know who *won’t* be voting for Arnold on Tuesday, don’t we. In case it wasn’t clear from the blog entry, I’m not voting for his ass either.
