Oops, He Did it Again: Schwarzenegger Not Being Investigated by Attorney General

After rumors ran rampant yesterday with the news that Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was being investigated by the California Attorney General, KABC reports that no such investigation is, or every was, underway:

Sources close to California Attorney General Kamala Harris said no such investigation is under way, and Schwarzenegger's attorney Martin Singer confirmed the news saying, "The AG's office informed us that there was never any investigation over this tabloid story."

The rumor got started after a Hyatt hotel security guard supposedly told the National Enquirer that Schwarzenegger was known to transport his ladies to and from their liaisons using CHP vehicles. The Atlantic Wire notes that other publications, including Radar Online, claimed to have evidence against the governator, too.

But those all seem to have fallen by the wayside, and now we're left with the same boring old scandal, with just one known child fathered out of wedlock with a household staff member while the former-bodybuilder-turned-state-politician's wife was pregnant with their fourth child.
