Manchin Aide now with Mylan

The Charleston Daily Mail reports that Lara Ramsburg has left the Manchin administration to become "head of special projects" at generic pharmaceutical giant Mylan Inc.

Ramsburg had been with the governor since his 2005 campaign, and had become his public policy director when it was announced in January that she would be leaving after the legislative session.

The article notes that Mylan co-founder Milan Puskar "was the biggest backer of Joe Manchin's primary campaign for governor," and is also the largest benefactor of West Virginia University.

"The company was in the headlines last year because of a scandal surrounding West Virginia University's retroactive awarding of a master's degree to Mylan executive Heather Bresch, Manchin's daughter," the article said.
