Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin expressed disgust with fellow former Republican California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger for secretly carrying on an affair and fathering a son with a housekeeper. Schwarzenegger showed “bad character,” Palin said on the Fox Business Network.
“It is irresponsible and pretty disgusting things that he did to deny that he had a child for 10 years,” Palin said. “I feel so bad for his children. It must be quite embarrassing for them.”

Schwarzenegger’s revelation about the affair and acknowledgement that it produced a child prompted wife Maria Shriver to leave the couple's home before they announced their separation last week. Schwarzenegger and Shriver jointly announced May 9 that they were splitting up after 25 years of marriage.
The affair, including the fact that the housekeeper was pregnant at the same time Shriver was, has prompted a media frenzy, including a flash mob of sorts when scores of reporters and photographers swarmed a quiet suburban cul-de-sac in the middle of California farm country amid unconfirmed reports it was the home of the love child’s mother.
