Once again, former “Governator,” Arnold Schwarzenegger, the corrupt RINO (Republican In Name Only) mugs for the cameras.

Schwarzenegger who billed himself as a “post-partisan” politician too wealthy to be bought by the special interests not only screwed Californians with record high taxes, commuted the sentence of a murderous son of a Democrat bigwig as a political favor as he left office, screwed his nanny and produced a son he kept hidden from the public, flew back and forth between Sacramento and Santa Monica almost weekly on a private jet as he touted climate change, created lobbyist-funded special programs to pick up his expenses, and raised more funds than the previous governor he replaced, he continues to do stupid things.

With a videographer close by, Schwarzenegger attempts to be relevant.


“Today, after the whole neighborhood has been upset about this giant pothole that’s been screwing up cars and bicycles for weeks, I went out with my team and fixed it,” he wrote on Twitter. “I always say, let’s not complain, let’s do something about it. Here you go.”

Fed up by LA pothole, Arnold Schwarzenegger fills it himself

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Fed up by an enormous pothole in his Los Angeles neighborhood, Arnold Schwarzenegger picked up a shovel and filled it himself.

The actor and former California governor tweeted a video Tuesday of him and a helper using packaged concrete to repair the road in the Brentwood area.

“Today, after the whole neighborhood has been upset about this giant pothole that’s been screwing up cars and bicycles for weeks, I went out with my team and fixed it,” he wrote on Twitter. “I always say, let’s not complain, let’s do something about it. Here you go.”

A neighbor rolled down her car window and shouted her thanks at the action movie star.

“You’re welcome,” said Schwarzenegger, decked out in work boots, a leather jacket, and shades reminiscent of his role in “Terminator.”

“You have to do it yourself. This is crazy. For three weeks I’ve been waiting for this hole to be closed,” he said.

Daniel Ketchell, a spokesperson for Schwarzenegger, said Brentwood residents made repeated requests for repairs since winter storms opened up potholes and cracks on local roads.

Mayor Karen Bass last week announced a plan to address what she called an unprecedented number of damaged streets across the city. Since Dec. 30, Los Angeles has received 19,692 service requests for repairs, and as of April 6, crews had filled at least 17,549 potholes, officials said.

The Department of Public Works did not immediately respond to an email asking whether the pothole Schwarzenegger filled had been scheduled to be repaired. <Source>

Unfortunately, like most things involving Schwarzenegger, the truth is somewhat different.

It wasn’t a pothole, but a service trench that was being used by the gas company.

A spokesperson for the City of Los Angeles noted, "This location is not a pothole.  It’s a service trench that relates to active, permitted work being performed at the location by SoCal Gas, who expects the work to be completed by the end of May. "As is the case with similar projects impacting City streets, SoCal Gas will be required to repair the area once their work is completed.

Additionally, a Los Angeles Department of Public Works official pointed out that Schwarzenegger's road patch won't really work, noting that the street is made of concrete not asphalt, which he used.

Not only did he fill the trench with the wrong material, but he also violated several safety issues when he illegally attempted his own road work.


(a)   No person shall lay, construct, reconstruct or repair in any street or in, over or through any property or right of way owned by or under the control of the City, any curb, sidewalk, gutter, driveway, approach, roadway surface, pavement, sanitary sewer, sewage works, storm drain, culvert, stairway, retaining wall or similar structure, building or improvement, or perform any grading or filling, or subject any sewer or storm drain to excessive live or dead loading without first obtaining written permit therefor from the Board and without first obtaining approval of plans and specifications and the lines and grades therefor from the City Engineer. (Amended by Ord. No. 115,316, Eff. 2/15/60.)

I wonder if the gas company will charge Schwarzenegger for the original work, the remediation efforts, and any delay in the project.

Bottom line…

Schwarzenegger has done enough to screw Californians, let him age gracefully and go away quietly.

We are so screwed.
