Time for Michigan's Wunderkind to Go

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder's contrition is certainly welcome.  However, as a former resident of Flint, I believe Mr. Snyder's actions as governor have created such a state of crisis as to demand his resignation as governor of Michigan.  Without such a step, Michigan cannot have a sense of holding its public officials accountable.

Now that it has been established that a town manager appointed by the Governor put tainted water through the pipes of homes and businesses in Flint, and that such tainted water has caused potential serious harm to residents for the indefinite future, nothing short of his leaving office can restore a sense of trust and order to the state.  The article below details the nature of the harm caused, the size of dismay and concern among its citizens, and the Presidential reaction.
