State Decides To Pay Six Employees Charged With Felonies in Water Crisis
But they're still suspended, in case you were wondering.
The State of Michigan has decided to reinstate pay for six employees who are facing felony charges in relation to the Flint water crisis.
DEQ employees Stephen Busch, Michael Prysby, Adam Rosenthal and Patrick Cook and Department of Health and Human Services employees Nancy Peeler and Robert Scott will not only be suspended WITH pay, but they are also being provided defense attorneys for the charges brought against them by Attorney General Bill Schuette.
Governor Snyder had no role in this, according to an email.
Let that sit in your noodle for a second - the people who are being charged with felonies in the Flint water crisis are being paid not to work, and we're also paying for their defense. Makes no sense, right?
