Flint water crisis: Four more charged
Four more officials were charged Tuesday in the Flint Water Crisis, two of which reported directly to Gov. Rick Snyder. Two ex-Flint emergency workers and two water plant officials were among those charged.
The charges stem from claims that the quartet misled the Michigan Department of Treasury into getting millions in bonds, using the money to finance the construction of a new pipeline and force Flint’s drinking water source to be switched to the Flint River. The charges today mark the 13th since the water crisis began.
