On Tuesday, October 11th, Goodman Acker
Attorney Mark Brewer filed a one-person jury complaint against Governor Rick Snyder over his
use of public taxpayer funds to hire private attorneys for his criminal
defense regarding the
Flint water case.
According to the complaint, Gov. Snyder bypassed all state laws governing
procurement of goods and services when he signed a contract requiring
tax payers to pay for this personal criminal legal defense of up to $2
million. Not only is this a conflict of interest in violation of the State
Constitution, but a misuse of taxpayer funds and misconduct in office,
alleges the complaint.
Neither the Attorney General nor any other law enforcement agency has indicated
that it will conduct an investigation into Gov. Snyder’s use of
tax dollars for personal criminal defense. Because of this, the Complainant
requests that the Ingham County Circuit Court exercise its statutory power
and convenes a one-person grand jury to investigate.
A press conference was held regarding the recently filed lawsuit.
