We all know it was bound to happen with Whitmer and Nessel in office.  They told us during their campaigns that they were looking to charge ex-Governor Rick Snyder with a crime for his role in the Flint water crisis.

As I reported the other day, former Republican Governor Snyder was charged with two counts of willful neglect, both misdemeanors which each carry a maximum sentence of one year in prison and a fine up to $1,000.

Two misdemeanors for willful neglect that lead to people being physically harmed and some dying.  Sounds like his bet to endorse far left Joe Biden for President, say nasty words about President Trump and lie by saying President Trump did not create a good economy those jobs were all in the pipeline really paid off for him.  I believe if he did what the Democrats are saying he did he is getting off extremely light.

It is good to know people in high places.

Do you now find it a bit hypocritical when Snyder said the following about President Trump:

“Facts and science matter. Good decisions should be based on facts and supported by sound scientific theory whenever possible…President Trump also has demonstrated that he does not fully appreciate public policy matters, including public health, the economy and foreign relations, nor does he seem to want to learn."

Yes, facts and science do matter Rick.  Why did you go against facts and science and allow the pollution of the City of Flint's water?  Wow-what a hypocrite.

Snyder and 8 other people in his administration were charged with 42 crimes.  The Department of Michigan’s Attorney General stated the following in a press release:
