Flint Mayor Karen Weaver Responds To Money Mishandling Accusations [Video]
Karen Weaver has been accused of diverting Flint Water emergency money into a fund that she controls, but on Thursday she denied those charges.
The lawsuit started when the former Flint Administrator filed a wrongful termination suit against Weaver and the city. Natasha Henderson claims she was fired for exposing Mayor Weaver's plan to move the funds.
When Weaver was asked about the allegations, she denied and said,
I think it's really sad that someone would take advantage of the city when they are in a crisis
Oddly enough, that's exactly what she is accused of doing.
Flint has hired an attorney to investigate the charges against Weaver, but the attorney they hired specializes in immigration cases. The reason given to ABC12 was that the city needed to hire someone they haven't ever used before, and probably wont use again.
