Many cities strive to become well known nationally, but Flint, Michigan, has recently found itself on the map for some very dire reasons. Flint became infamous for having drinking water so terrible it was literally poisoning its residents — and more and more, it looks like corruption is the root cause.

Flint, located 70 miles northwest of Detroit and once home to a thriving automotive industry, saw its population fall by nearly half since its peak in 1960.

All the while, the increasingly crime-ridden city has had nothing but Democrat mayors since 1975 … yet those liberals have consistently pointed fingers at Republicans for the area’s problems.

You’d think that after decades of watching a once-proud city turn into a hellhole under Democrat leadership, Flint’s residents would at least try a different tune. But no: In 2015 they once again elected a liberal, Karen Weaver, as mayor.

Predictably, Weaver has been a vocal anti-Trump critic from the start, while also blaming conservatives at the capitol in Lansing for almost every issue under the sun.

Back in 2017, the liberal mayor slammed President Trump over Puerto Rico hurricane relief and voiced her solidarity with San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz.

In a twist of irony, however, both Cruz and Weaver are now facing serious scandals over how they handled their respective emergencies. In both Puerto Rico and Flint, there are signs that corruption and incompetence are rampant … and Trump may end up having the last laugh.

Weaver is now accused of using the Flint water crisis for personal gain by re-directing donations to a political fund she controlled.

“Mayor Karen Weaver asked employees to redirect charitable donors to a nonprofit fund she created shortly after taking office in 2015, an ex-city official testified during a federal whistleblower trial in Detroit on Wednesday,” MLive reported.

The Democrat mayor, of course, is denying the allegations and doing her best to deflect the public relations nightmare, but many observers aren’t buying her story.

“They got slick,” community activist Arthur Woodson bluntly told MLive. “They were trying to steal the money.”

Slick is certainly the right word. If the accusations are correct, Weaver used her emergency declaration during the peak of the water crisis in 2015 as a catalyst to receive a significant amount of money from sympathetic donors trying to help the city’s residents. The way those donations were handled is what first raised eyebrows.

“By January 2016, Weaver, who was elected and took office the previous November, created her nonprofit, Caring for Flint,” explained MLive. But there were red flags from the start.

“The nonprofit was created as a 527 organization, usually a form of campaign fund created for politicians. Under federal law, a 527 account isn’t required to register or report to the state, can accept direct corporate contributions and is only obliged to report donors and expenditures if contributions exceed $25,000 in a year,” the newspaper continued.

At the center of the controversy are Jody Lundquist and Natasha Henderson, the city’s former chief financial officer and city administrator, respectively. They’re now whistle-blowers who are speaking out about what they saw at city hall.

The two former officials say that Mayor Weaver directed her staff to funnel donations meant for the city into her new account, which made them uncomfortable.

After Henderson began asking questions about how the donated funds were being handled, she was fired by the Democrat mayor.

“The termination prompted Henderson, who claims she was fired for pointing out the questionable donation diversion, to file a federal Whistleblower Protection Act lawsuit in May 2016 against Flint and Weaver,” MLive said.

That suit has since morphed into a U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals case, which is still ongoing.

No political party is spotless, but there does seem to be a shocking trend of Democrat leaders using their power for personal gain. Hopefully, the truth in this case will come out — and at the very least, Flint’s residents will think twice about who they’re voting for in the future.

    No, no they won’t think twice about who they elect. It’ll be another corrupt, crackhead nigga like when D.C. convicted Marion “crackhead” Barry for prostitution and crack cocaine possession. He remained mayor and I believe he was re-elected. That’s how fucking stupid the primates are in Flint. Build a wall around the nigga cities and drop hundreds of pounds of drugs on them everyday until they’re all exterminated.

    They act like dogs and live like dogs. They have NO ONE TO BLAME BUT THEMSELVES for voting in the same lame democrats. Wherever democrats govern pure unadulterated hell follows. The dimms like keeping the blacks, muslims and hispanics poverty stricken. Waiting for that next welfare check. Turning their head pretending they don’t see the crime and street drugs and slaughter of their citizens. Do you keep voting them in and we’ll keep saying you get exactly what you deserve.

    They just can’t help themselves you know. Anyone who is sympathetic to the “D” party has a personality defect with a compunction toward criminal behavior.

    Michigan residents need to rethink and evaluate the Democrats they vote for. Many mistakes are made when resources are misused and people do not see it. Poor city services would be the first of all things to notice. Loss of population is also a sign of things going bad.

    You can’t fight ignorance like this, the genetically challenged are not going to change.
    They have been electing Democrat Mayor’s since 1975 and they STILL don’t understand where the problem lies?
    LBJ and his “Great Society” has wrecked havoc on our society that we are still seeing today. Meanwhile, Democrats blame everything that goes wrong on someone else. It’s NEVER their fault. Don’t believe it? Just ask them !

    Not sure, but I’m guessing the mayor and city council are black. If so what would you expect? Best to let them go down the toilet.

    I hope that the people of Flint Michigan will have an opportunity to remedy their situation by voting a Republican or an Independent that will be for the people of Flint Michigan before it truly becomes another failed state.

    Sorry, you hopefuls, but the residents of Flint only seem to vote for clowns with (D) by their names. They keep voting the same way hoping for a different outcome. Flint will end up being destroyed by Democrats much like they’ve done to Detroit.

    No different than people being stupid enough to elect two raghead terrorist bitches in congress, plus that brainless Cortez/Kotex bitch. And that Waters nigger from Crapifornia, Piglosi, and many others. Some people will vote for anything that’s breathing.

    It wouldn’t be that tough to live with, if they were not sucking on the government teat. I feel not guilt in them choosing to live in squalor. The booze and drugs do wear off from time to time, and when it does, misery stares them directly in the face. Too bad they are too ignorant to understand that it wouldn’t take a lot of effort to improve their lot.

    lol… its ALWAYS the ones with the Biggest mouths who have the most to hide…This is why we NEED to have someone look into all the rest of the Democrats. Especially those in Congress… People who continually spout off about Trump needing to be impeached, Investigated, arrested… Should ALL be the first on the list of investigations into their political careers and lives as i am sure a lot of them cannot show how or where the money that they spend on their lavish homes and life styles comes from!
