Flint’s Trump-Hating Mayor Now Caught in Scandal of a Lifetime

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 nearly drop in 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.

  3. Is it any surprise she's black? This seems to be a normal operating procedure for black politicians. Yes it happens with white politicians but the blacks are either so stupid or brazen they leave trails anyone with sense can follow. Of course she will play the race card and be able to pull a Smollett.

  7. I checked all the others but you luckily only asked for one.
    They tried to assassinate in 1835 but failed.
    Kennedy may have been no.2 but his dad had stolen so much the JF didn't need to.

  9. PJ I have very close relatives living in Jo-burg. I'm just hoping they leave before the ANC makes SA into another Zimbabwe or Democratic Republic of Congo. The sad truth is that sub-Saharan blacks have an average IQ in the very low 70s. They cannot run or maintain a first world city, much less a nation. At best they function in small tribes, loyal to a chief, fearful of a witch doctor, all-the-while fighting and killing the members of a rival tribe living 10 kilometers away.

  10. Andrew Jackson was the last American president to beat back the international Jewish banking cartels when he refused to re-charter the Second Bank of the United States. They tried to kill him for it. And although I am no fan of Lincoln he made many Jewish banking enemies when he chose to print greenbacks to finance his war instead of borrowing money from Europe.

  11. John F Kennedy was murdered after he re-started the minting of silver coins and re-introduced the silver certificate in place of the Federal Reserve Note. The Jewish bankers who own and run the "Federal" Reserve didn't like him for that. Plus he wasn't making any friends in Israel by threatening to cut off all aid if they didn't stop working to develop nuclear weapons. Look what happened to him.

  13. HI UC,
    The issue is threefold.
    1) the African culture is completely different to the western culture, (as is the Arab culture and the Asian culture) imposing western norms on a different culture doesn't work and never will. Until the African culture changes it needs to run on their norms.
    Unfortunately the west took advantage of their 'lack of sophistication' to cheat and steal under new dispensations. Rio Tinto, Anglo American and a dozen others are making out like bandits by exploiting them.
    2) the 'average IQ' for South Africa in the latest national reports is 69! That includes 2 million whites, a million Indians and 2 million coloured people so imagine what the average of the rest is. Then remember that half of those are below average. Shovels and brooms are 'hi-tech machines' to many.
    3) Your impression of African culture is both wrong and condescending. The tribes combine as nations and are very successful (See Botswana, Swaziland and several others) the problem came when the Europeans arbitrarily drew lines in the sand and put numerous tribes and languages and structures into a single entity without considering history. The same happened in Scotland and Ireland and would have happened in Wales but they were busy at an Eisteddfod that weekend. 500 years later Great Britain is still fighting each other. The Sangoma is in fact a very educated and skilful healer, usually far better and more successful than his western counterparts. 70% of Africans will consult him-her first unless they have suffered physical trauma and have blood leaking. The success rate is probably higher than using western pharmaceuticals. Traditionally they never 'killed each other'. It was primarily a fist shaking contest with the occasional spear thrown from a distance. If one of the other side by sheer bad luck was killed then everyone left the field to ensure that his 'spirit' did not come looking for revenge.
    I could go on and on with the misconceptions but it is pointless.
    People's minds and ideas are not changed by facts and logic but by emotions.
    Go and live with them for a few years and then you will come to understand the differences and why those differences do not make their society inferior merely different.

    " 1) the African culture is completely different to the western culture,
    (as is the Arab culture and the Asian culture) imposing western norms
    on a different culture doesn't work and never will. Until the African culture
    changes it needs to run on their norms."


    It will run on their norms. That's why they will not be able to run South
    Africa as an industrialized country like it was in the past. Hell if
    the ANC gets its way in 10 years they won't even be able to feed
    themselves. SA could very well regress to a broken African state like
    the DRC or Zimbabwe. I admit, some Africa nations are being exploited
    by Western nations and the Chinese. But this isn't being helped by
    crooked black leaders. Let me give you an example of the level of black
    business management in SA. Roughly 4 years ago a state of the art
    electrical power generation plant was built outside Johannesburg. This
    was to remediate the constant power black-outs around the capitol.
    Things are not going well. The station is frequently down because of
    little or no maintenance. Mandated racial quotas means unqualified
    people are employed who can't or won't work on the equipment. Funding is
    appropriated for other purposes. Do you really think this would have
    happened under white rule? I'm against apartheid but I'm also against
    destroying the infrastructure whites, yes I said whites, developed.

    " 2) "the average IQ for South African the latest national reports is 69! That includes
    2 million whites, a million Indians and 2 million coloured people "

    Looking at the statistics there are about 56.7 million people living in SA.
    Of that percentage blacks make up about 79.2%. Colored 8.9% White 8.9 %
    (that's 4.587 MM) Asian 2.5% and Other 0.5%. You are saying that
    43.6% of the white population is at an arrested stage of intellectual
    development. To me the law of averages means that almost half of the
    whites I encountered in SA should have been retarded. I can assure you
    they weren't. Please cite your source material. But your point backs
    up what I have said. How are you going to run a country when half the
    population has an IQ less than 69?

    3) "Your impression of African culture is both wrong and condescending. The
    tribes combine as nations and are very successful."

    I'm sure you are right some of the time. Many tribes probably do get
    along. But we only have to remember who, through inter-tribal wars, sold
    their black brothers into slavery in the 16th,17th and 18th centuries.
    And those of us old enough remember Uganda in the 70s and Rwanda 15
    years ago. And there are religious conflicts in Nigeria, the Central
    African Republic and South Sudan and a lot of that fighting falls along
    tribal lines. Who is to say that if there was an economic crisis in
    sub-Saharan Africa the fighting will not be along tribal lines? If it happens in the
    USA you can be assured it will fall along racial and political lines.

    My Condescension? Maybe some. But having said that I liked the everyday
    black people I met in SA. I feel for their condition. But I don't think
    they can effectively and honestly run that country. The same thing is happening
    everywhere blacks run large cities in the US. That's my point.
