Mrs. Schwarzenegger Takes On California Museum

California’s State History Museum is nearly broke, and could close in the next few months if a sudden influx of cash is not found. The state’s first lady, former journalist Maria Shriver, is proposing to convert the institution into a museum celebrating the contribution of women to California’s history, but a backlash began the moment Shriver stepped into the fray, with detractors accusing her of strong-arming the museum board. Shriver insists that the board approached her, and that she is “happy to help.”
