    You're a little late, the blame and the story sort of went away with the admission that the feds knew about the issue not only in Flint, but in many other places around the country. The EPA are the ones that have been covering it up.

    He didn't. Flint, MI city council had been trying to get the water switched over since 2009. Snyder's only issue is that he trusted they knew what they were doing.

  • He caved to pressure and put in an affirmative action hire of a Democrat emergency manager and the expected happened.

    Phase one, poison the residents and make them move. Phase two, get the federal government to replace tainted water system. Phase three, gentrify and get rid of the remaining poor residents.
