Have you noticed that Democrats don’t talk about the water scandal in Flint, Michigan very much anymore? There’s a very good reason for that.
The Associated Press reports:
Another official facing manslaughter charge in Flint water
A special prosecutor said Monday the he will add a charge of involuntary manslaughter against Michigan’s chief medical executive in a criminal investigation of the tainted water crisis in Flint and an extraordinary outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease.
Dr. Eden Wells was in court for a key hearing on other charges, but the hearing was postponed until Nov. 6 after the announcement by Todd Flood of the Michigan Attorney General’s Office. Flood said he’ll offer additional evidence and ask a judge to send Wells to trial on four charges, including involuntary manslaughter and obstruction of justice.
Flood said he’s expanding the case “based on new review of other documents and testimony that came out last week” at a hearing for Nick Lyon, who works with Wells and is director of the Health and Human Services Department. Flood declined to elaborate…
Five other people, including Lyon, have been charged with involuntary manslaughter tied to an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease in the Flint area in 2014-15. The attorney general’s office says key officials knew about a spike in Legionnaires’, but failed to tell the public until January 2016.
The people of Flint definitely need a change in leadership.
