By Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A small image of Maria Shriver on a lapel pin worn by former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in an official portrait has been painted over as the actor-turned-politician and his wife go through a divorce, a former aide said. Schwarzenegger, a Republican who left office nearly four years ago, was the featured star earlier this week when the portrait was unveiled in the state capital of Sacramento. The revelation came weeks after the separation of Schwarzenegger and Shriver, who had been married for 25 years. Schwarzenegger's former aide, Clay Russell, confirmed in an email on Friday that the portrait had included a small image of Shriver on a lapel pin Schwarzenegger wore.
