Californian DUers: any "girlie-man" asking Arnold about HIS TIES WITH
THE ENRON SCANDAL (where is the money to be recouped from the energy theft)?
He says the democrats are pro-union and pro-education. Is Arnold pro-Enron against California's energy needs?

1. And what was he doing at that meeting?
The public was defrauded -- when will it be time to subpoena those attendees?

2. Wasn't Enron
pretty much bankrupt a few years before Arnold even considered taking office? There are tens of thousands of employees who deserve money just as much as California does.

4. But the employees are lucky in not having Arnold as their representative.
They can get regular, maligned "trial lawyers" to do that.

5. It's not about money, it's about complicity.
Ken Lay made the deal with nazi boy before Enron embarked on its destroy Davis action, all with the blessing of big dick cheney.

3. Enron E-mails Confirm Schwarzenegger-Ken Lay Meeting
Enron E-mails Confirm Schwarzenegger-Ken Lay Meeting

Enron E-Mails Show Arnold Met With Ken Lay During Energy Crisis
Santa Monica, CA -- Internal Enron e-mails confirm that Arnold Schwarzenegger was among a small group of executives who met with Lay at the posh Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel in May of 2001, in the midst of California's energy crisis. View the e-mails. The Foundation for Taxpayer and Consumer Rights, which obtained the e-mails, is calling on Schwarzenegger to acknowledge the meetings and disclose the information that was presented and discussed. The meeting with Enron occurred ten days after rolling blackouts darkened California for two consecutive days; Schwarzenegger has previously said that he does not remember such a meeting.

6. It's hasta la vista to $9 billion if the Governator is selected
Arnold Unplugged - Friday, October 3, 2003

It's not what Arnold Schwarzenegger did to the girls a decade back that should raise an eyebrow. According to a series of memoranda our office obtained today, it's his dalliance with the boys in a hotel room just two years ago that's the real scandal.

The wannabe governor has yet to deny that on May 17, 2001, at the Peninsula Hotel in Los Angeles, he had consensual political intercourse with Enron chieftain Kenneth Lay. Also frolicking with Arnold and Ken was convicted stock swindler Mike Milken.

7. Will Ahnold be called as a witness in Lay's trial?
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 02:07 PM by Old and In the Way
Seems that the prosecution would want to understand what the Gropenator's role in this was.

8. next press conference, why doesn't somebody flat-out ask
arnold that?

also, given the wide belief that arnold slept his way to the top of the bodybuilding world with lots of men, i'm a little surprised he'd fall back on the girlie-mahn thing.

9. Well, Ah-nuld still has to sit down and negotiate with them
"Terminated" "erased" or "hasta la vista" at the November election, Musclehead still has to work through a budget deal for next year with the people he is so publicly maligning.

The Austrian Dope just committed cardinal sin number 1 in politics (don't piss off today people you will need tomorrow), and I have a feeling that the California Democratic caucus will not mind showing him the error of his ways.
