DETROIT (AP) — Ex-Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm has taken aim at her former counterpart in California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, typing on Twitter that male governors should keep their “pants zipped.”
The tweet posted Tuesday is in response to the former California governor’s acknowledgement that he fathered a child with a member of his household staff.
Granholm’s online post suggests the U.S. needs more female governors and was labeled “(hash)Arnold.” Former press secretary Liz Boyd confirms Granholm typed the tweet herself.
The Los Angeles Times reported this week that Schwarzenegger and his wife, Maria Shriver, separated after the action star revealed he had fathered the child. The child was born before Schwarzenegger began his seven-year stint in public office.
Granholm was governor from 2003 through last year.
