Officials Dismissed Flint Water Fears In Emails [VIDEO]

Data unveiled in 274 pages of emails released by Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder paint a picture of dismissive state leaders who deflected responsibility and ignored scientific evidence regarding the lead-poisoned drinking water in Flint. Top aides reportedly scoffed at people voicing questions about the water quality β€œanti-everything,” and findings reported by a concerned paediatrician were dismissed as simply β€œdata.” The emails, which were handed over in the governor’s effort to provide transparency, show that months of complaints did not prompt action until late 2015.
