Flint Mayor Karen Weaver is in hot water after a former employee filed a lawsuit claiming Weaver tried to divert aid funds meant for the people of Flint, Michigan, to her own campaign fund.
Former City Administrator Natasha Henderson alleges the mayor's assistant said she had been instructed to divert money from Flint’s Safe Water/Safe Homes fund into a PAC, apparently associated with the mayor, called "Karenabout Flint."
Henderson said she told Flint’s legal counsel about the allegations and claims she has the emails and texts to prove it. But three days later Henderson was fired, and her lawsuit says it was because she voiced those concerns.
