    Schwarzenegger reveals he had child with staffer

    LOS ANGELES Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has acknowledged that he fathered a child with a member of his household staff, a revelation that apparently prompted wife Maria Shriver to leave the couple's home before they announced their separation last week.

    Schwarzenegger and Shriver jointly announced May 9 that they were splitting up after 25 years of marriage. Yet, Shriver moved out of the family's Brentwood mansion earlier in the year after Schwarzenegger acknowledged the child is his, The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.

    "After leaving the governor's office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago," Schwarzenegger told the Times in a statement that also was sent to The Associated Press early Tuesday. "I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry."

    Arnold's supporters are lucky this didn't come out while he was running in the general election, as it would most likely have led to his defeat. Running for office despite having this scandal that could come out at any time and cause him to lose was pretty deceitful to everyone who worked on his campaign. And he had to keep the affair a secret from his wife while he was in politics because if she left him he would lose his bipartisan street cred and his shield against sexual harassment allegations. Who knows what political influence his mistress had, with her ability to destroy his career with this info.

    Exactly. It's not the extramarital sex that's the worst thing--that just affects one family. It's the lying to the public that's the worst part of this. If you had an affair, let everyone know before the election so they can take that into account, and so that no one can blackmail you into providing political favors.

    Ms. Jenna , in order to get elected in the first place , all politicians have to compromise themselves by owing political favors. It gets worse in order for them to stay in office once they have been elected. As for as lying is concerned , for the politician, it is a fine art.

    For the record he was never a republican anyways.
