West Virginia Lawmakers Legalize Consumption of Raw Milk, Drink Some, Then Get Sick

A number of West Virginia lawmakers have fallen victim to a questionable stomach bug, which some believe may be the result of a recent law passed.


The law, which allows the state's residents to buy raw milk, was enacted by a number of delegates who brought in the suspect beverage. In the weeks after the bill's passing, Scott Cadle (R-Mason, 13), a delegate who sponsored the bill, brought the raw milk in to celebrate and soon after, several lawmakers fell ill. Coincidence?

Watch the video below of delegate Pat McGeehan painfully clutching his forehead as he attempts to explain away the recent onset of illness in the state capitol as simply a case of poor timing.

You’re not fooling any of us, McGeehan. But no need to cry over spoilt milk.
