Attorneys today filed a libel lawsuit against Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sean Walsh, and the "California for the Schwarzenegger Campaign" accusing them of an election eve smear of Rhonda Miller because she had accused the then-gubernatorial candidate of groping her when he was an actor and she was a Hollywood stunt double on the sets of True Lies and The Terminator. The lawsuit follows an exclusive column published November 7 by LA Weeklys Nikki Finke detailing exactly how, on the eve of Californias gubernatorial recall election, Schwarzeneggers campaign duped the news media to report untrue information that Miller was a convicted felon with a six-page rap sheet. In fact, Miller has no criminal record of any kind. Both KFI-AMs John and Ken Show and MSNBCs Scarborough Country program had to retract the information they received in an October 6 email from the Schwarzenegger campaign sent by Walsh. Millers lawsuit filed today in L.A. County Superior Court by attorneys Gloria Allred and Paul Hoffman seeks general damages, special damages, punitive damages and plaintiffs costs.
