Schuette Failed to Mention AG Office Role in Flint Crisis

Schuette’s political ambitions outweigh any transparency

LANSING – Progress Michigan released the following statement regarding the recent revelation that Attorney General Bill Schuette’s office approved documents related to Flint’s 2015 water switch that were ultimately determined to be a “sham.”

“Progress Michigan has said from the beginning that we need an independent investigation into the Flint water crisis. This is at its best horrible optics and at its worst another piece of the puzzle in a massive cover up,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “Why wasn’t this wrinkle in the investigation brought to the public light by the AG? He’s quick to trot himself out in front of TV cameras for a self-congratulatory press conference, but can’t be bothered to mention how his office was directly involved in the lead-up to this manmade crisis? It’s shameful. Schuette has nothing but his own political ambitions guiding him and the people of Flint deserve better. We renew our call for an independent investigation.”
