There has always been scandal in the news and tabloids about people and celebrities having affairs, and even sometimes ending up having a baby with someone other than their wife or husband. But when this type of behavior is happening in our own government, it still ends up shocking the country. Especially when this specific government official has been preeching the importance of family his entire term.
These past couple weeks, we have heard in the news about the Gov. of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and his supposed affair with their live-in maid. The two apparently had together a son, whom was born 5 days after him and his own wifes son. This news comes especially shocking, because of the platform he had been running on for his entire campaign. Arnold had always been a strong supporter of family and morals. And for a story to come out about him like this, that is so against everything he said he believed in, it has to make everyone that ever voted or supported him, wonder or second guess their decisions.
Maria who comes from the Kennedy family, and whom was very democratic, always supported Arnold in his pursuits in politics despite him being a republican. She gave up her career in broadcasting, to focus on helping him achieve his dreams. She was a major help when it came to him becoming governor of California.
With such a supportive wife and family, I dont see what else someone could need. For him to go back on everything he said he had ever believed in, should surely make people doubt him as a government official. I believe that if you talk the talk, you should be able to walk the walk.
Tell me what you think??? Would you still trust Arnold as your governor??? Should Maria take him back???
