Default Re: Ex-governor, 8 other former Michigan officials charged in Flint water crisis

Here's what's REALLY happening...

The Democrat working for a Democrat governor THREW OUT the previous charges made by the previous Republican State Attorney General...and then turned around and indicted Republicans...

State Attorney General Dana Nessel appointed Hammoud and Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy to investigate the case, throwing out earlier charges brought by her predecessor, Bill Schuette.

Nessel is a Democrat, and Schuette, a Republican like Snyder, ran unsuccessfully for governor in 2018.
Here's an article from 2019 with more detail...

All Flint water crisis criminal charges dismissed by attorney general's office — for now

The Michigan Attorney General's Office has dismissed all pending criminal charges arising from the Flint drinking water crisis,saying the initial investigation was bungled and it is opting to launch a new but expanded probe.

The office announced on Thursday the dismissal of charges against all eight remaining defendants, including involuntary manslaughter charges against Nick Lyon, the former director of the Department of Health and Human Services.

Charges were also dismissed against other officials from the health department, plus two former Flint emergency managers and current or former employees of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and the City of Flint.
The whole thing is political...Standard operating procedure...
