Darnell Earley: Water Crisis Not a Leadership Issue [LIVE VIDEO]
Former Emergency Manager Darnell Earley, Former Flint Mayor Dayne Walling and many others are in testifying in Washington. You can watch it live or after the fact, but as expected Darnell Earley is trying to point blame at everyone else.
In a written statement to the Congressional Committee, Earley said: "In the midst of this crisis, I must tell you, I believe that I have been unjustly persecuted, vilified, and smeared – both personally and professionally – by the media, local, state, and federal officials, as well as by a misinformed public."
His voice quivered as he addressed the Committee as he reiterated points from his written testimony: "As a former acting Mayor of Flint, I do sincerely regret what has transpired.
But, while I may share some leadership responsibility by virtue of my role as an
EM, this was not a leadership issue – this is purely a water treatment issue."
Why is it that the people that are at fault are always the ones to say, "Let's not lay blame, let's fix the problem"?
