The Californian Attorney General will conduct what’s being termed an “inquiry” into former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s alleged misuse of tax payer funds to cover up sexual liaisons.
In a bombshell exclusive, RadarOnline.com has learned the Office of the Attorney General, a branch of the Department of Justice, is conducting a preliminary evaluation into the scope of Schwarzenegger’s double life, which allegedly included using his state-funded security details to cover up women being escorted into his hotel room.
Veteran hotel security officer William Taylor said he witnessed the “Governator” using California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers and vehicles to ferry scantily-clad women in-and-out of his suite at the Sacramento Hyatt Regency where he and wife Maria Shriver often stayed.
“It makes me very angry just to think of what was going on at that time,” Taylor, who passed a polygraph test about his claims, told the latest edition of the National Enquirer.
“On three differed occasions after the governor arrived alone at the Hyatt Regency, CHP Dignitary Protection Services arrived in their official vehicles, black Ford Crown Victoria sedans – about one to two hours later with one or two young females.
“They’d hurriedly escort the women through the service entrance on the second floor parking garage to the elevator that went to the governor’s private wing… the women would usually stay for two to four hours and either leave through the hotel’s main entrance or be driven away by the CHP in the same official vehicles.”
The Attorney General’s office told RadarOnline.com “there will be no comment” about the probe, a criminal matter, however multiple department sources have confirmed the decision.
Taylor was head of security at the hotel and is almost certain to be interviewed.
As RadarOnline previously reported, top lawmakers have already called for an investigation into the explosive sex scandal, after Republican Schwarzenegger admitted fathering a love child with his former housekeeper.
Eric Bauman, Vice Chair of the California Democratic Party and Chair of the Los Angeles Democratic Party, has demanded an official inquiry into the actor-turned-politician’s finances to determine if he used state or campaign money to fund his extra-marital affairs.
Schwarzenegger has hired a public relations firm in the wake of the scandal. In a statement to RadarOnline.com, the firm denies Taylor’s charges. The release also included statements from various CHP officials and one executive from the hotel in question.
RadarOnline.com has learned that Taylor is not backing off his charges.
Schwarzenegger served as California Governor from November 2003 until January 2011.
