how much culpability does the governor have here? I mean, I know what happened in Flint in terms of long term lead exposure, but did the gov. do something that directly lead to the situation persisting/getting worse?

It's going to be interesting. The state sent emergency managers in that ultimately made the decision to switch the water supply, then everyone that could possibly fail at their job, did. Water wasn't treated correctly so it ate the pipes, people testing either didn't test right or didn't report what was going on. Then when people started to ask questions everyone pointed at someone else and said "they were in charge"
