SACRAMENTO (AP) — California’s ethics commission has rejected a request by Los Angeles Democrats to investigate whether former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger violated state laws during his affair with a housekeeper — a relationship that produced a child he hid from his wife for years.

The Fair Political Practices Commission told attorneys for the Los Angeles County Democratic Party that they wouldn’t look into allegations that Schwarzenegger violated the state Political Reform Act, which governs campaign finances.

Executive Director Roman Porter wrote that the information the party provided was insufficient to establish that the former governor used campaign money to carry out the affair.

Party Chairman Eric Bauman told the Los Angeles Times Monday that he’s disappointed but not surprised by the decision. He also acknowledged that the party has no specific allegations.

    So why is it called an ‘ethics’ committee?

  2. alan hart says:

    In case you haven’t noticed, Arnold is no longer Governor. The ethics committee has no jurisdiction over him now.

  3. Say what? says:

    “California’s ethics commission?” That’s an oxymoron if there ever was one!

    Roman Porter…You are a social parasite and I have no love for the Republican party. Toying with the Terminator can get you killed just like Gray Davis.

    The “Commission” is probably made up of overpaid termed out a$$hole politicians who have never had a real job.
