LA Democratic Party chairman calls for probe into Arnold Schwarzenegger scandal

The chairman of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party is calling for an investigation into Arnold Schwarzenegger's secret child scandal.

Eric Bauman says the public has a right to know if taxpayer dollars were used to support the mother of Schwarzenegger's child while he was in office.

"I just want to know if campaign funds or state resources were used in any way to cover it up. And quite frankly, as is always the case in these kinds of personal matters, it's not the action that's the problem, it's the cover up that's the problem," said Bauman.

Bauman is calling on the California Fair Political Practices Commission to investigate.
