#FlintWaterCrisis UPDATE: TWO Emergency Managers charged, Congressional investigation quietly concluded, and much more

There is a whole lot of news to report about the ongoing tragedy in Flint, Michigan where the drinking water of tens of thousands of city residents was poisoned with the powerful neurotoxin lead through actions taken by state-appointed Emergency Managers.

The biggest news of the day is that Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette is bringing charges against two Emergency Managers – Darnell Earley and Gerald Ambrose – along with two city officals. From AG Schuette’s press release:

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette today charged two former State of Michigan Emergency Managers, Darnell Earley and Gerald Ambrose, with multiple 20-year felonies for their failure to protect the citizens of Flint from health hazards caused by contaminated drinking water.

Additionally, Schuette announced that Earley and Ambrose, along with ex-City of Flint executives Howard Croft and Daugherty Johnson, also face felony charges of false pretenses and conspiracy to commit false pretenses related to their roles in a process that led to the issuance bonds to pay for a portion of the KWA water project.
