Former Michigan Governor Charged In Flint Water Scandal

By now, most of America probably remembers the Flint, Mich. water crisis as one of the biggest scandals of the Obama era. But nearly seven years after the impoverished city's drinking water was found to be contaminated, former GOP Gov. Rick Snyder (who was widely vilified in the press over his involvement in the decisions that led to the contamination) is reportedly about to face criminal charges.

The AP reports that Snyder, his health director Nick Lyon and other ex-officials from his administration have been told they’re being charged after a new investigation of the Flint water scandal. The city's water, which was mistakenly contaminated with lead due to an oversight by the state, caused an outbreak of Legionnaires' disease in 2014-2015 and untold led poisoning.
