Arnold’s hot talk

The week's news at a glance.

Sacramento

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s re-election campaign was jolted last week by the release of a tape in which Schwarzenegger describes a Latina state legislator in racially charged terms. During a conversation last April with an aide, Schwarzenegger said of Republican state Assemblywoman Bonnie Garcia, “She maybe is Puerto Rican or the same thing as Cuban. I mean, they are all very hot. They have the, you know, part of the black blood in them and part of the Latino blood in them that together makes it.” Schwarzenegger apologized, and Garcia said she was not offended. “I am not mad that he recognizes I am passionate about the issues,” she said. Democratic gubernatorial candidate Phil Angelides called Schwarzenegger’s comments “deeply offensive.”
