Arnold is a quitter

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, his poll numbers plunging, has given up a lucrative moonlighting job with two body-building magazines. “I don’t want there to be any question or doubt that the people have my full devotion,” he said. American Media Inc. recently revealed it would pay Schwarzenegger, a former Mr. Universe, $1 million a year to be a consultant and columnist for Muscle & Fitness and Flex. Critics called the deal a conflict of interest: The magazines sell advertising for dietary supplements, and Schwarzenegger last year vetoed a bill tightening regulation of the supplement industry. “He should never have put himself in this position in the first place,” said consumer activist Doug Heller.
