Nessel’s bungling cheats Flint of justice


If incompetence were a crime, Attorney General Dana Nessel would be in prison for her handling of Flint.

You remember Flint? Thousands poisoned. An untold number dead. All because a grubby group of politicos and lawyers wanted to make money on a new and totally unnecessary water utility.

The outrage lasted for months, but now it’s over. It is highly improbable that anyone will ever serve a single day behind bars now that the Supreme Court has refused to grant Nessel’s office another shortcut.

Genesee County Judge Elizabeth Kelly ordered Nessel’s office last year to go back and create an independent “taint team” to determine whether documents her office seized from defendants violated their attorney-client privilege. (Think Trump and the Mar-a-Lago raid.) Nessel’s team was warned of a need for a taint team but ignored that advice.

Nessel’s office fought Kelly’s ruling, arguing it would take two years and $37 million to review some 20 million documents they had taken.

A three-judge Court of Appeals panel upheld Kelly’s order in March. Then two weeks ago, the Supreme Court refused to hear Nessel’s appeal.

And so no justice for Flint.

Let’s go back to 2018, when candidate Nessel exploited the mass poisoning of Vehicle City for personal political gain. Nessel claimed the work done by Special Prosecutor Todd Flood and lead investigator Andy Arena was incompetent. She even insinuated that the pair were lining their pockets with taxpayer money.
