Emails Expose EPA Dragging Feet on Flint’s Water Crisis

The EPA certainly isn’t innocent [1] in all this, but the Democrats conveniently ignore that and blame the Republicans for the disaster. Everyone shares the blame, but the EPA knew and still ignored it:

Four months after being notified about high lead levels in a Flint home, the Environmental Protection Agency was prepared to let the city continue giving lead-contaminated water to customers until at least 2016, emails released Friday show.

Jennifer Crooks, the Michigan program manager for the EPA’s Drinking Water State Revolving Fund, sent out an agenda on June 8, 2015, for a planned call with Michigan Department of Environmental Quality officials.
