LA Times has discovered that

LA Times has discovered that Arnold Schwarzenegger's father was --- you guessed it --- a Nazi.

One document in particular shows that Gustav Schwarzenegger was indeed a member of the Sturmabteilungen, also known as the "storm troopers" or "brown shirts." He joined the SA on May 1, 1939, according to the entry in the archive file — about six months after the storm-troopers helped launch Kristallnacht, the Night of the Broken Glass, when Jewish homes, businesses and synagogues were attacked across Germany and Austria and thousands of Jews were hauled off to concentration camps.
Arnold asked the Wiesenthal Center to investigate his dad's history in 1990, but they didn't turn up much. The LAT's more thorough investigation resulted in these new revelations.
