A look at investigations into Flint's lead-tainted water

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 01/26/2016 - 15:14

Latishia Simpson carries a case of water to be loaded onto a U-Haul truck for the people of Flint on Monday, Jan. 25, 2016, in Kalamazoo, Mich. Stephen and Keneisha Darden, owners of Exquisite Hair Design, wanted to help people affected by the Flint water crisis, so they put out a message on Facebook saying they would be collecting water to donate. With the help of family, friends and the Kalamazoo community, they were able to collect 466 cases of water as well as 50 one-gallon water jugs within one week. (Chelsea Purgahn/Kalamazoo Gazette via AP)Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette announced the appointment of a special counsel to aid his office's investigation into whether laws were broken regarding Flint's lead-tainted water. It is unclear at this point if the probe could result in criminal or civil charges. Flint's public works director, Michigan's top environmental regulator, a state spokesman and a high-ranking federal regulator have resigned in connection with the crisis. Two other state environmental officials have been suspended pending an investigation.
