California's former governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, has had no shortage of scandals since leaving office, most notably the whole thing where it turned out he had fathered an illegitimate child with his housekeeper while his wife was pregnant.

The most current Arnie situation isn't quite as salacious as that one, but it's still pretty good -- a hedge fund manager who bought unclaimed storage space in New Jersey owned by the late Bob Guccione of Penthouse discovered a photo of a young Schwarzenegger engaging in a sex act.

The New York Post reports that the pictures were one of many scandalous items discovered by the lucky buyer. Also in the locker were nude photos of Madonna and Laura Hutton, correspondence with Dick Cheney, and unpublished takedowns of Hugh Hefner.

According to TMZ, Schwarzenegger's camp has yet to comment on the photo.
