Schwarzenegger Responds To Reports He Used State-Funded Security To Cover Up Affairs

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Arnold Schwarzenegger’s attorney is responding to published reports that the former governor used tax payer money to cover up sexual liaisons.

The National Enquirer published a story today citing the “head of hotel security” at the Hyatt Regency Sacramento saying he saw Schwarzenegger’s state-funded security detail ferrying women into the governor’s hotel room. Schwarzenegger used the Hyatt as his home-base in Sacramento.

This afternoon, Martin Singer, Counsel to Arnold Schwarzenegger sent a response to the report calling it “totally and completely false”. He believes the story is “made up” and comes from “paying sources that have zero credibility”.

Urlich Samietz, the General Manager of the Hyatt Regency Sacramento, says he has never heard of William Tayler, the man quoted in the Enquirer as the “head of hotel security”.

The statement also included statements from a retired CHP sergeant and a retired CHP officer denying the reports.

“I can say without a shadow of a doubt as a supervisor of his protective detail that at no time did I see Governor Schwarzenegger say or do anything that could be deemed inappropriate, and I was at his side for 7 years. As a supervisor, if anything had occurred, I would have been notified, even if it was technically off the record on his private time,” said retired CHP sergeant Mark Hammond.

Retired CHP officer Manny Trevino, who worked on Governor Schwarzenegger’s protective detail for seven years, also issued a statement.

“In all the time I worked with him, I never witnessed the Governor acting in a less than honorable manner. I also never heard any other officer discuss any such claims. Governor Schwarzenegger always treated the officers on his detail with respect, and we had nothing but respect for him in return,” said Trevino.

    It was his personal money, he can do what he wants with it. He never took a salary as Governor.

      You’re right, he never took a salary, but he did waste millions of taxpayers’ dollars on a failed special election. We, the taxpayers, may also incur bills from the various lawsuits brought against him while he was in office. I, personally, would have rather paid him a salary, then to have to financially repair all the damage he’s done to the State. It probably would have been 10x less than what we’re going to have to pay for his misdeeds and political ‘favors’


    Arnold is a bafoon and California knew it when he was first elected. However, money allows one to accomplish almost anything one desires. Back to the bafoon and his defenders…. Politics in general, and the pretense these gentlemen are the most rightous citizens this country has to offer, are a crock of sh__! At the local level of government politics you may get some good people really interested in serving their community, but at the federal level it is all personal interest baby! Arnold’s character was quite apparent going in to office. The man even reduced a friend’s son sentence for murder prior to leaving office. Call it what you want, but you people that support a man of his character behavior everything. You are probably on his payroll and being paid to conduct damage control via internet outlets. Do us a favor, go tell your boss he is the worst thing that has happnened to California….

    The Martin Singer and officer officer Manny Trevino brotherhood aren’t powerful enough to throw this off. Schwarzenegger needs to order the release of Holly Bobo before her June sacrifice if he wants to be free of Soros. He will remain nonetheless non-salvageable.

    I believe he didn’t bring any ho’s to the Hyatt. He seems to like to bring them home to his wife and kids and hire them as housekeepers/sex slaves.

    Even if he did use state funds, none of the sworn officers are going to admit they knew anything. It would only incriminate them for knowing and not doing anything about the abuse of state funds.
