The Predator

‘IT is hard to think of a person less suitable for public office than Arnold Schwarzenegger, but then it is hard to think of a constituency who more deserves him than California.

Anna denied that she led Arnie on

Yesterday, Republicans whooped and cheered as the Terminator issued a public apology for groping and molesting at least six women.

And, despite the movie star’s admission that his behaviour was offensive, his campaign spokesman said the women’s accusations were part of a smear campaign.

“This is something that discourages good, hard-working, decent people from running for office,” Sean Walsh told the Sun.

Luckily, Schwarzenegger is neither good nor decent and is not at all discouraged.

“Yes, it is true there were rowdy movie sets and I have done things that were not right – which I thought then was playful,” he said yesterday.

One of those “playful” incidents happened three years ago during an ITV interview with Anna Richardson to plug his movie The Sixth Day.

“He kept looking at my breasts and asking if I worked out,” Anna tells the Sun (which also reported on the story at the time).

“I went to shake his hand and he grabbed me onto his knee and said ‘Before you go, I want to know if your breasts are real’.

“At that point, he circled my left nipple with his finger and said ‘They’re real’.”

Denise Van Outen was another TV presenter who was at the receiving end of the wandering hands of the man dubbed “Arnie The Barbarian” by the Express.

As proof, it has a photo of Schwarzenegger with his hand on her bum during an appearance on Channel 4’s Big Breakfast.

And, the paper says, “he is also alleged to have let his hand wander close to Melanie Sykes’s breasts as they posed for the cameras after a TV interview.”

None of which will probably make any difference to the California electorate next Tuesday who seem determined to saddle themselves with the former bodybuilder as governor.

After all, they seem to have forgiven him for being the son of a Nazi, for admitting to smoking drugs, taking part in orgies, calling gays “fags”, being a serial adulterer, a liar, for Kindergarten Cop…’
