Ex-Governor Charged in Flint Water Crisis

Charges have officially been filed against former Michigan Governor Rick Snyder for his role in ignoring the Flint water crisis. After a five-year investigation, Snyder has been charged with willful negligence for neglecting his duty to protect the people of Flint. According to reports, Snyder may face fines and up to a year in prison if convicted.

The Daily Wire reports:

Charges are expected against others in Snyder’s administration, which lasted from 2011 through 2018, including his state health director and a senior adviser.

“The alleged offense date is April 25, 2014, when a Snyder-appointed emergency manager who was running the struggling, majority Black city carried out a money-saving decision to use the Flint River for water while a regional pipeline from Lake Huron was under construction,” the AP reported. “The corrosive water, however, was not treated properly and released lead from old plumbing into homes in one of the worst manmade environmental disasters in U.S. history.

Despite desperate pleas from residents holding jugs of discolored, skunky water, the Snyder administration took no significant action until a doctor reported elevated lead levels in children about 18 months later.”

Democrats across the country blamed Snyder first and foremost for the crisis, but Flint has been run by Democrats for decades. At the time of the water crisis, the city had a Democrat mayor – and former President Barack Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency tried to cover up the issue, as the city did nothing about the poisoning until the problem became widespread. Emails between the two showed neither had any sense of urgency regarding the contamination.

The water crisis resulted in thousands of children drinking lead-contaminated water which can lead to serious developmental problems. Reports also claim the Flint water crisis also lead to an outbreak of Legionnaire’s disease which killed 12.

They did NOT Biden had fewer votes than Obama but the switch don by machine and the heavy dumping of fake ballots in some places make it look like he got more votes. The largest voting fraud organization ever assembled joe Biden said then at his next event he told them do not vote for me I don’t need you to vote for me I got that already. But we are now to believe this was a fair and free election? Are they kidding?

I have a little more history to add as well…
I went camping in 2015, and stopped in Silverton, on the 29th of September…

I accidentally locked myself out of my vehicle and had to wait for lockout service to come from Montrose…
During the 12 hours, I sat at the General store , and met an ex-employee from Gold King…

He told me that the EPA, would not allow the geologists from the mine to help with the remediation and acid leaking out…
Environmentalist experts always know best, not!

…Meanwhile, the same groups hypocritically attacked and hamstrung the oil and gas industry, judging them over sour gas/methane, etc…,
Yet they allowed the silver mine, in Ouray, Co., just an hour North, of Silverton, to reopen and sell ore to the PV /Solar industry….

This was in spite of the fact that the mine in Ouray has a history of sour gas and methane fires/accidents….

Would think that the decision on which water to use would have been the Mayor’s? Not to mention that it was the city’s water processing plant that failed to do it correctly in the first place then ignored the appeals from the public. Even the Obama EPA refused to acknowledge the problem. Seems that the only reason they are dragging the former Governor into it is because he’s a Republican.
