Arnold takes over

The week's news at a glance.

Sacramento

Arnold Schwarzenegger arrived in Sacramento this week to replace Gray Davis as governor of California, promising quick action on the state’s budget deficit. But Democratic state Attorney General Bill Lockyer cast a pall over the inauguration by calling for an independent investigation into accusations that the new Republican governor groped a string of women during his career as a movie star. “I think it’s a stain on his reputation and administration,” Lockyer said. Schwarzenegger spokesman Rob Stutzman reacted angrily. “The governor-elect had already decided to engage a well-respected investigative firm to look into the allegations,” he said.
