LANSING, MI (AP)-- A state board has rejected petitions to recall Michigan Governor Rick Snyder over his handling of Flint's lead-contaminated water.
The Board of State Canvassers rejected the petitions Thursday, 4-0. The board says the reasons for a recall must be clear and factual, under Michigan law. If they're not, no one can gather signatures to force a recall election.
Flint resident Quincy Murphy wants to recall Snyder for "failing to protect the health and safety" of the citizens of Flint. Snyder attorney John Pirich says that's opinion, not fact.
