Larry Flynt Weighs In on Schwarzenegger Scandal

Hustler chieftain Larry Flynt was in San Francisco today publicizing his book One Nation Under Sex, a history of U.S. presidential sex scandals and their resulting impact on the political decision making process. So naturally, Joe Garofoli, a reporter for the Chronicle, asked him what he thought about today’s stunning Schwarzenegger revelations.

Flynt thinks Arnold’s household transgressions are worse than those of Bill Clinton but not quite as bad as the ones that tarnished John Edwards. He also feels that unlike Clinton, no one is going to feel sorry for Schwarzenegger:

Flynt ends the interview with a quote for the ages: “People always lie about sex. They lie about it; they lie to get it; they lie to keep it.” Schwarzenegger would no doubt agree.
