Wait....taxpayer funded legal fees?? He should pay his own criminal defense fees!!!! Dadgone politicians just keep sticking it to the people. The system has failed the people in Flint and many other similar cities across the nation. They kill us and make us pay their legal fees and we're stuck paying for our own funerals. That's messed up. And then they tweet, they're sending their hearts and prayers to the victims. Sinister hearts and disingenuous prayers.

Flint mayor criticizes state's decision to end free bottled water distribution

KARMA ALLEN
Good Morning America


Officials in Flint, Michigan, are criticizing the state for ending its bottled water distribution program as the city continues to recover from a lead-contaminated water crisis. Republican Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder said Friday the state would stop supplying free bottled water to Flint residents, saying water quality there had “tested below action levels of the federal Lead and Copper Rule for nearly two years.”

First a little known fact about GM relocating their assembly plants from the city of Flint to Genesee County's suburban areas. The plant relocation's started in the 40's not the late 70's and by 1980 GM left Flint in financial ruin. That was the start of a failed austerity program that has eventually doomed Flint.

Yes, taxpayer funded legal fees NNQ. That's national policy for every political office in America during their tenure.
