DETROIT, MI (AP)-- A special prosecutor who spent three years leading a criminal investigation of the Flint water scandal has been fired.
The Michigan attorney general's office apparently is tying Todd Flood's departure to the recent discovery of 23 boxes of records related to the water crisis. The boxes, found in a state basement, were disclosed in a court filing Friday.
Flood's contract was terminated April 16. Solicitor General Fadwa Hammoud says evidence was not properly pursued "from the onset of this investigation."
