The Gropenator's Ongoing Legal Troubles
If anyone wants to know why the Republicans have stopped talking about changing the Constitution so they can run Arnold Schwarzenegger for president in 2008, I suspect that this might be a factor:
Arnold Schwarzenegger has edged closer to facing a British libel trial after he failed to block a legal action brought by a reporter who alleged the actor-turned-politician sexually assaulted her. British television host Anna Richardson alleges she was libelled by the California governor and two of his campaign workers in a 2003 article over the assault claim. She says the article, which appeared in the Los Angeles Times, meant she "deliberately and dishonestly fabricated" allegations that the Hollywood star groped her breast during a 2000 interview in a London hotel.It doesn't help that the Gropenator's popularity is dropping thanks to his efforts to destroy California's public-employee pension system, which is one of the best in the nation. Hundreds of protesters now dog his every move.
