    So, one city official, and two state EPA thugs. Tell me how this is Rick Snyder's fault again?

    Because the "EPA thugs" didn't have ultimate responsibility for the state because they were not elected governor, so they didn't cut budgets and allow infrastructure to rot all these decades just so corporate welfare gravy could still flow to fetter yon "free market" with? And, yes, it's not just the Republicans being so shameless or thick involving these cuts...

    Besides, anything more than a nickel of money, and the predictable response would be "Maintenance is a waste of taxpayer money, the systems can magically regulate themselves, waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!" followed by even more predictable chants of more tax cuts that won't trickle back down down but people will be led to believe that's the case anyway...

    Besides, Nixon created the EPA. Why not go pester him since he's the thugs' ringleader...

    What did the flint mayor do? The mayor was subjugated by the city manager and the departments assigned over the mayor. Is there some kind of evidence that the mayor was implicit in the lead poisoning?

    I think you mean complicit. What did the Flint mayor do? Nothing, that's what. Criminal negligence, incompetence, and indifference.

    Yes complicit.

    So if you have no knowledge about activities you should be held accountable for any activities, whether good or bad? What proof or evidence is there that the Flint mayor knew what was going on. He was already taken out of the loop by appointment of a city manager.
