Gov. Arnold: San Quentin, I'll Sell Every Inch of You![*]


We take it all back! California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger ain't all bad! He just proposed selling San Quentin, the L.A. Coliseum, and a bunch of other junk that costs Golden State taxpayers big bucks:

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger wants to sell the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, San Quentin State Prison, the Orange County Fairgrounds and other state property to raise cash amid the state's growing fiscal crisis, according to a copy of a proposal reviewed by The Times.

Sale of the properties, to be included in the governor's revised budget plan on Thursday, would raise between $600 million and $1 billion, although it would not provide relief to state coffers for two to five years, according to the proposal.

Don't forget to sell the Malibu beach house singled out for abuse in Reason.tv's latest video, "Hasta La Vista, Arnold!: What California's Budget Mess Means for America."
