In an appearance on Meet the Press, former California Governor and Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger admitted that because of his extramarital activities, he deserves the anger coming at him. Politico explains:
“But let me tell you, if the people are angry with me, I deserve that,” Schwarzenegger said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
Schwarzenegger separated from his wife Maria Shriver last year over the revelation that he had fathered a child with the family housekeeper.
“I know there was a major screw up. I’ve hurt my wife, I’ve hurt the kids. I take the responsibility and i will do everything that I can,” he told host David Gregory. “I’m not looking for sympathy at all. People should make up their own mind about what they think of me.”
The bigger question here is this: Does the Governor’s affair impact his ability to be an effective or good elected official? How about a man of good character? In the interview, Schwarzenegger says he still thinks he is.
