Being The Governator Took A Toll On Arnold's Wallet…And Family

| Filed under: PolitikArnold Schwarzenegger

arnold took losses as governor

If Arnold needs to earn back a few bucks, all he'd have to do is sign on for Terminator 5! Easy as that!

According to Arnold Schwarzenegger, he lost over $200 million while serving as governor of California. His losses stem from office-related expenses and lost income from acting jobs.

Here's what Arnold had to say about it:

"…I'm not sorry. It was more than worth it."

But what was probably NOT as worth it was the toll it took on his family life. More from Arnold:

"What was much worse was the damage my time as governor did to the family. There is a lot there that needs to be repaired."

According to the former governor, his family hated his job, because he'd have to leave their L.A. home every Monday morning for the Sacramento capital, and then he would sometimes not return until the end of the week:

"It was heartbreaking every time. In my second term of office, I did better. I tried to fly home every evening."

Sorry to hear the job took a toll on your family, Arnold. Hopefully now you'll have more time to spend with them…at least until you make your inevitable return to the big screen!

  2. 2

    Yes, well, California lost about what, 5 times that while he was governor ?



  3. 3

    Fly home every evening!? MASSIVE carbon footprint!!!!



  4. 4

    Did he seriously fly home every night?
    No wonder California's economy is in the toilet!



  5. 5

    Pretty sure nobody cares.



  6. 6

    He flew home every evening during his 2nd term? maybe that is why California is broke. that had to cost a pretty penny.



  7. 7

    Who gives a sh*t. How much did he cost us?!? And now look, we were paying for his nightly flights home. What a douche. I'm SO glad to be rid of him.

    That's no excuse for you guys sending him here to Canada to mooch money off of us at the end of the month! I left California and moved here to get away from him!

    If they weren't such a rich snobbish family they would have all been living in Sacramento, where the governor's job is. I have lived here all my life and it was the first time I have never even seen California's First Lady on the news doing charities, business events in Sacramento! They were too snobbish to be up here…. so as a family, they got what they deserved! And yes we are more broke after he's reign!

    seriously, mario? this was in the news days ago. get your shit together!

    Why complain now … not only did Californians vote for him in a recall election in 2003 but re-elected him for a second term in 2006… BTW, I voted Democrat those years but people were fascinated with his Hollywood status. This is what happens when people vote for politicians with little or no political experience… buyer's remorse. Remind you of anyone current in politics?

    Would it have been too much to ask the family to move to Sacramento for a little while? Shit, if his majesty didn't have to FLY home EVERY NIGHT, California might have had some money to keep jobs around. Christ.

    Governor Deukmejian–I mean, ARNOLD– has got to be kidding. Not only are California's finances in the toilet, he's in his sixties and not even a major Hollywood player anymore. There's no way he would have earned close to $200 million in acting gigs had he not been in office. Governator, that ship done sailed a long time ago.

    the family should have moved to Sacramento to support their husband and father.
