Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin (R) said that “he had intentionally tried to get his children infected with chickenpox and that he did not support the state’s mandatory chickenpox vaccine,” the Washington Post reports.
“Bevin said that every one of his nine children had come down with chickenpox — on purpose.”
Said Bevin: “We found a neighbor that had it. And I went and made sure every one of my kids was exposed to it and they got it. And they had it as children, they were miserable for a few days, and they all turned out fine.”
