Arnold's Apology

On Thursday, just days before the California gubernatorial recall election, Arnold Schwarzenegger kicked off a statewide bus tour with an apology for bad behavior. The apology came hours after a Los Angeles Times story in which six women accused Schwarzenegger of groping and harrassing them. Jack Pitney, a professor at Claremont College, joins Lynn Neary to talk about the political fallout.
