SACRAMENTO (AP) — Throughout his seven years as governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger was accompanied nearly everywhere he went by a state-funded security detail that protected him and his family.

The California Highway Patrol provides security for most of the statewide elected officials, and in Schwarzenegger’s case, the four children he had with wife Maria Shriver.

What’s unknown is whether those officers knew that Schwarzenegger had another child, a boy whom he acknowledged this week he fathered with a former housekeeper at the family’s Brentwood home.

Whether the CHP helped Schwarzenegger carry on his relationship with the woman or his son is also not known.

CHP Protective Services division Chief Mike Nivens says the agency will not discuss any details of the security it provides. He says the policy mirrors that of the Secret Service.

    I agree with Mike. CBS news needs to focus on relevant issues, and this is not one of them.

    Of course it’s our business. That child should or could have been offered the same protection as his other children which would mean we would pay for that protection with our taxes.

    It SURE DOES matter. Arnold was negotiating with unions, etc. It’s possible they had dirt that made him play ball.

    goes to Jail? for what? cheating? If they were to put people in jail for cheating I think the whole world would be in jail. come on, this is the year 2011. they don’t put people in jail for stuff like that anymore. you have to do a more serious crime like not pay traffic fines or something. back to the arnold thing, my comment is WHO CARES. lets move on now. how much time is going to be put into this one now? this is stupid, so is maria for not knowing and so is arnold for telling. he could of taken this one to the grave.
