Flint Water Crisis fall guys


Flint District Judge Tracy Collier-Nix approved criminal charges Wednesday morning against three individuals in connection with the Flint water crisis.

Charged by Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette are two MDEQ officials and one Flint city government official.

A bit about the three:

1. Mike Glasgow, Flint's utilities administrator, is charged with two counts of tampering with evidence and willful neglect of office. It is believed that Glasgow signed off on a document which falsely said the homes used to test tap water this summer had lead service lines. This admission, according tothe Detroit Free Press, is why Flint had shown artificially low lead levels.

2. Mike Prysby, a Michigan Department of Environmental Quality official who was Flint's engineer, faces six criminal charges (two charges of misconduct in the office, one charge of conspiracy to tamper with evidence, one for tampering with evidence, and one for engaging a treatment violation process that breaches Michigan's Safe Drinking Water Act, and one for monitoring such a treatment violation).

3. Stephen Busch, a former supervisor of one of DEQ’s eight district offices within the department’s drinking water program, faces five charges (misconduct in the office, conspiracy to tamper with evidence, tampering with evidence, engaging in a treatment violation that breached Michigan Safe Drinking Water Act, and engaging in monitoring violation that breach Michigan Safe Drinking Water Act).
