Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette’s criminal investigation of the Flint water crisis moved a step closer to the highest levels of state government Tuesday as he brought felony charges against two former emergency managers who reported to former Treasurer Andy Dillon and were appointed by Republican Gov. Rick Snyder.
Schuette, who also charged two former City of Flint public works employees Tuesday, would not say how far the investigation would go, only that it will follow the evidence and nothing is off the table.
“We are closer to the end than we are to the beginning,” he told reporters.
In 67th District Court in Flint, a judge authorized charges against former Flint emergency managers Darnell Earley and Gerald Ambrose and two former city officials – Howard Croft, who was public works superintendent, and Daugherty Johnson, the utilities administrator.
The latest charges bring the total number of people charged by Schuette to 13.
Earley and Ambrose are the highest-ranking officials charged to date, as Schuette’s investigation – in three rounds of criminal charges starting in April – has moved steadily higher in the state’s chain of command. (freep.com – Paul Egan and Elisha Anderson) Click here to get more information.
