Arnold Schwarzenegger

Sued By Prison Inmates

You Poisoned Us With Valley Fever

3/7/2014 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Arnold Schwarzenegger is still being haunted by his political past ... the ex-Gov. is being sued by inmates who accuse him of sentencing them to a fate worse than prison -- a cruel, disfiguring and crippling disease.

According to the lawsuit filed by 22 current and former inmates ... Schwarzenegger and other officials knowingly kept them in a Central Cali prison where they claim Valley Fever killed 30 inmates, and left many more with horrible symptoms.

Valley Fever attacks the body's organs ... victims may suffer skin lesions, limb amputations and brain damage. The disease is spread by spores found in soil -- and the inmates say they were exposed to it. 

The inmates are also suing current Gov. Jerry Brown ... claiming he continued Arnold's policy.

They want cash to cover medical care, and pain and suffering -- beyond the typical prison pain and suffering.

FUN FACT: The plaintiffs are incarcerated at ... Pleasant Valley Prison.

Based on the picture of Arnold with this story it looks as if Arnold may have a touch of what ever is going around. He looks really bad...probably all that steroid use from years ago is catching up with him.

@Pebbles77... Tell that to those suffering from SCD (for example).
I hear your point, but that is a ignorant/naive statement.

That prison carries minimum, medium, and maximum inmates. If it's the maximum inmates? Who gives a chite! If those in the minimum and medium housing suffered these horrible consequences? That is horrible.

Valley Fever is not some stupid little whiny problem that prisoners are complaining about. It's a serious , life-threatening disease that California and Arizona legislators have swept under the carpet for many years. They may have to pay a high price for this moral betrayal.
