Accuracy in Media

From the Washington Examiner:

Government had already let down Flint, Mich. badly enough. But a new lawsuit alleges that Mayor Karen Weaver, hailed as a champion for her city during its water crisis, siphoned money out of a pool intended to fix the city’s tainted water problem into her political action committee. This accusation will be tested in court.

Weaver is accused of firing the whistleblower who asked the city attorney on Feb. 9 to open an investigation. Former city administrator Natasha Henderson alleges in court documents that Weaver ordered city staff to tell people who wanted to contribute money to fix the water to give the money to her Karenabout Flint PAC rather than to Safe Water/Safe Homes through the city’s website.
