LOS ANGELES (CBS) — While rumors continue to swirl around the private life of Arnold Schwarzenegger, at least one allegation has been shot down by two separate sources.

KNX 1070’s Mike Landa reports on explosive charges from The National Enquirer that Schwarzenegger spent public money for his own personal entertainment.

William Taylor, a senior security official at a Sacramento hotel, is reportedly credited with accusing the former governor used taxpayer-funded protective services to engage in inappropriate behavior.

But San Francisco Chronicle writer Carla Marinucci says the story doesn’t check out.

“I contacted the Sacramento Hyatt, and the general manager told me they do not have any records of a “William Taylor” ever being employed there,” said Marinucci.

Marinucci says two retired members of the Governor’s security detail have also issued a statement rejecting the allegations.
