Another Beth Mole story!!

"Officials in Minnesota have appointed anti-vaccine advocates to a newly formed state council on autism, sparking controversy in the wake of a record measles outbreak in the state.

State senator Jim Abeler formed the MN Autism Council last fall to address issues surrounding autism, including 'treatment, educational options, employment opportunities, independent living, and more.' While about one in 59 children in the US are diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, the rate in Minnesota is one in 42." https://arstechnica.com/science/2019/01/anti-vaccine-advocates-appointed-to-minnesota-autism-council-after-measles-outbreak/ [arstechnica.com]
