Arnold the Barbarian?
We've heard that the wannabe governator faces potentially scandalous accusations, but what are they? I compiled a list which includes statuatory rape
, repeated claims
of sexual harassment, sexist remarks
recreational drug use
(which he lied about in the January 1988 edition of Playboy), steroid use
, nude photography
(not worksafe), possible health issues related to open heart surgery
and steroids, his support for ex-Nazi Kurt Waldheim
, multiple claims
that he used to idolize Hitler... and even an Enron connection -- Arnie had a private meeting on May 26, 2001 with Kenneth Lay
, where Lay sought support for his solution to the California energy crisis, opposing price caps on electricity and federal assistance. The Bush administration supported Lay's solution
and stood by while Enron defrauded Californians out of billions
... but did Arnie use his influence to drum up support for Lay's plan?! Will any of these charges stick?
