Filmmaker Michael Moore said a recent Associated Press report that Michigan's former governor, Rick Snyder, will be charged for his role in the Flint water crisis has made him hopeful that "justice is happening" for the Flint community.
Two people with knowledge of the planned prosecution told the AP on Tuesday that the attorney general's office has informed defense lawyers about indictments in Flint and told them to expect initial court appearances soon.
The 2014-2015 Flint water scandal saw over 100,000 Flint residents become exposed to unsafe levels of lead after leaching from old pipes and spoiling into the cities water source.
Snyder was the governor at the time when state leaders switched the predominately Black city's water supply to the Flint River in 2014 to save money while a pipeline to Lake Huron was being developed. State environmental regulators advised Flint not to apply corrosion controls to the water, which became contaminated by lead from aging pipes without those corrosion controls.
"It is outrageous to think any criminal charges would be filed against Gov. Snyder".
Then-Governor Snyder eventually acknowledged the problem, accepted the resignation of his environmental chief and pledged to aid the city. AP said it did not know what the nature of the charges was. "Coming from an administration that claims to be above partisan politics, it is deeply disappointing to see pure political motivation driving charging decisions", he said in a statement.
Baird served as Snyder's point man in Flint throughout the crisis.
