He was not involved...
TMZ reports that Arnold Schwarzenegger has filed new legal documents claiming that he did not play a role in California prisoners being exposed to a serious disease while he was governor.
There has been an outbreak of Valley Fever in Pleasant Valley State Prison. Valley Fever is a disease that attacks the organs and can cause skin lesions, amputations and brain damage. Schwarzenegger is being sued by inmates who say they are sick because he put them in a location where there were dangerous spores.
Schwarzenegger said he wasn't indifferent about the issue and had a news conference to address it. He was busy with other state responsibilities at the time and there were others responsible for the prisons. While he may not be personally responsible, the State may still have had a role.
