The governor of Michigan is drinking toxic Flint water for a month
Well, Governor Rick Snyder just announced that he'll drink filtered Flint tap water for the next 30 days. Why? His office has announced that the water in Flint--which is contaminated with lead--is safe to drink as long as it's filtered. So the governor's going to put his, uh, mouth where his mouth is.
Not everyone's impressed.

Or you could like, fix the water so no one has to filter it in order for it to be even arguably potable...? https://t.co/WiT2hsLayD
