Former Gov. Rick Snyder named Harvard fellow

LANSING, Mich. A former Michigan governor who's been criticized for his administration's role in the Flint water crisis is headed to Harvard University to teach and study subjects related to state and local government.

Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government announced Friday that Rick Snyder begins work as a senior research fellow Monday. His fellowship is with the school's Taubman Center for State and Local Government.

Center Director Jeffrey Liebman says in a statement the two-term Republican governor brings "expertise in management, public policy and promoting civility." Snyder says he looks forward to sharing his experiences.

He's previously said he's most proud of Detroit's turnaround and keeping young people in Michigan.

7. Promoting civility? WTF

This is just absurd. Once again, someone in the GOP good ole' boys network is creating a cushy job for a fellow creep. He had a hand in the Flint water crisis that endangered people's lives and he gets rewarded for that?

8. Incredible. Was it at Harvard that students opposed a married team who were advising

Weinstein or some such neer do well. I'd have thought poisoning a city would be considered just as objectionable.
