Politicians take an oath to serve the country with integrity when they are sworn in, but most don’t seem to feel that same obligation when it comes to their spouses. Despite being held to a higher standard than everyone else, these 15 public servants put it all on the line — including their jobs — when they got caught with their pants down cheating on their wives.
On his quest from the Terminator to the governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger was called a womanizer on the campaign. His wife, Maria Shriver, vouched for her husband and assured voters the former Austrian bodybuilder was not the man the media and his opponents painted him to be. But a few months after leaving office, it was reported that Shriver moved out of their California home and less than a week later, the public found out why: Schwarzenegger fathered a child with the maid, Mildred, during their 25-year marriage. Suspecting that her husband was the father of the boy, Shriver confronted the maid who confirmed her suspicions. Although the couple officially separated, they have reportedly attended marital counseling. Schwarzenegger has publicly admitted he would like to reunite with Shriver.
