8. Gloria Allred hints at defamation suit.....
http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/news/articles/7053526?sou...

......In the latest claim, a stunt double alleges the Austrian-born star pinned her down and sucked her breast on the set of Terminator 2.

Rhonda Miller claimed Schwarzenegger pounced on her in a make-up trailer. He also allegedly took a photograph of her breast during two encounters on the set in 1991. Miller also claimed she was forced to hit the actor over the head when he again groped her breast on the set of True Lies in 1994.

Beverly Hills lawyer Gloria Allred, representing Miller, said: "If what Rhonda said is true, then Mr Schwarzenegger has a pattern and practice of preying on women and treating them as sexual objects without any regard for the effect that his disgusting and harmful conduct may have on them."

She hinted at a defamation lawsuit if Schwarzenegger publicly denies her client's allegations.

However, other T2 crew members have come forward to contradict Miller. Hairstylist Peter Tothpal said: "I was the one who took the photograph. I can say with certainty that Arnold Schwarzenegger was not in the make-up trailer at the time the Polaroid photograph was taken."

11. NOW: "Won't let matter drop" Can't be a governor of Calif. if groper
http://www.canoe.ca/CNEWS/World/2003/10/06/218971-cp.ht...
....The National Organization for Women, for one, says it isn't going to let the Schwarzenegger matter drop.

"You can't be governor of California and have been groping women for 30 years and we're going to say this is OK," said Grieco.

"But Schwarzenegger has raised anew the issue of legal limits on behaviour toward women and how often they're ignored.

"Typically these crimes aren't pursued," said Fukuroda. "How many times does this have to happen before police and district attorneys treat it as important?

"If he was touching the breasts of a 15-year-old, people would be outraged. Because we're dealing with adult women, it's so easy to blame them."

12. Mrs. Davis made an interesting point this morning...
If these charges are true, the groper couldn't get a job as a teacher or a cop. What happens if he becomes gov? Does that make him above the law? Will he be forced to resign or can they impeach for the offenses?
