Demonstrators Heckle Schwarzenegger’s Wife

Union protesters disrupted a voter registration event held by Arnold Schwarzenegger´s wife, Maria Shriver, yesterday in a Sacramento suburb.

Outside a Wal-Mart store, more than a dozen union members carried signs saying “No on recall.”

Carpenter Buck Wilson said “We´re here to give our message to Mrs. Schwarzenegger that we´re against the recall.”

At one point, the group chanted, “Yes on pants, no on recall.” That´s a reference to a 1988 Playboy magazine interview in which Schwarzenegger said he inherited his father´s distaste for women´s slacks and that neither his mother nor his wife were allowed to wear pants when they went out with him.

Incidentally, Shriver was wearing pants.
