Arnold's Supplemental Income

Just a few days after resigning from a multi-million dollar position as executive editor of Muscle & Fitness and Flex magazines, Arnold Schwarzenegger (who's other job is running the nation's most populous state) announced that he's also cutting business ties with The Arnold Classic, an annual bodybuilding competition.

Both the magazines and the competition heavily promote "dietary supplements" in return for advertising fees. The Governor, who's keeping the money he's received, vetoed a bill regulating supplements while on the magazine's payroll. Now he will be writing articles in the magazine for free, allowing the publishers to keep any money they would have paid him. Apparently he feels donating his services to the magazine does not continue raise conflict of interest issues.

As for The Arnold Classic, their spokesperson reportedly did not know how much the actor/politician was paid for his services.
