Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former governor of California who is already dealing with a wide number of embarrassing revelations about his personal life, has denied tabloid reports that he used public funds to hide his extramarital liaisons.
Allegations have emerged that Schwarzenegger used members of the California Highway Patrol (CHP) “to ferry scantily clad women in and out of his [hotel] suite.
Schwarzenegger's lawyer, Marty Singer, dismissed the charges as completely false.
Unfortunately, the media's relentless desire for new information has some outlets running stories that are made up by paying sources that have zero credibility, Singer said about The National Enquirer report.
My client stated from the beginning that he takes full responsibility for his actions and deserves the public and media criticism. This does not entitle some in the media to be totally irresponsible.”
Two former CHP officers denied that they helped Schwarzenegger cover up his affairs.
I can say without a shadow of a doubt as a supervisor of his protective detail that at no time did I see Governor Schwarzenegger say or do anything that could be deemed inappropriate, retired CHP Sergeant Mark Hammond told TMZ.
Also, Retired CHP officer Manny Trevino said: I never witnessed the Governor acting in a less than honorable manner.
However, Radar Online reported that the California Attorney General will make an inquiry into the former governor’s alleged misuse of government funds.
Ironically, Singer is also representing actor Charlie Sheen in his legal battle against Warner Brothers.
Meanwhile, following the waves of controversy over Schwarzenegger having a love-child with his former housekeeper, and allegations of possibly other illegitimate offspring, The Terminator is reportedly laying low in Ketchum, Idaho.
Schwarzenegger and his wife Maria Shriver are now separated – she will reportedly file for divorce by the end of the week.
