In news from Michigan, the Board of State Canvassers has rejected a petition to recall Michigan Governor Rick Snyder over his handling of Flint’s lead-poisoned water. The crisis began after a Snyder-appointed, unelected emergency manager switched the source of Flint’s drinking water to the corrosive Flint River. Flint resident Quincy Murphy had filed the petition to begin a recall effort against Snyder for "failing to protect the health and safety" of Flint residents. Flint residents have been calling for Snyder’s resignation and arrest over the ongoing water contamination crisis.
