• Here are the bureaucrats facing charges in the Flint, Michigan water crisis. Neither the governor, the former head of the state Department of Environmental Quality, the city's former emergency manager, nor any other names mentioned prominently in reports about the poisoning will face charges.

Mayor Condon told me that if I resigned instead of him firing me I could "keep my reputation intact" and talk about my accomplishments.At another meeting, on the day his ostensible resignation was announced, Straub says Sanders told him "you need to resign — there is no reason to discuss this further."
Ms. Sanders told me that I had "rebuilt" my reputation "after Indianapolis" and "had accomplished so much" and that I needed to resign in order to "keep my reputation intact." If I didn't "it would be another Indianapolis."
I realized I was being terminated, but I was also being threatened with damage to my reputation unless I agreed to go along with a resignation.
Months before, I had been made aware of one complaint arising out a meeting in March 2014 from an employee named Monique Cotton. I had asked at that time that Ms. Cotton's claims be investigated because it is a standard policy for any such claims, and it protects me as well as any claimant.In other words, both Straub and Cotton desired and expected a full-scale investigation into the allegations about Straub's controversial management style. And while Sanders and City Attorney Nancy Isserlis looked into the March 31 meeting, both Straub and Cotton were surprised there wasn't anything more formal or extensive.
On Sept. 21, I thus asked both Mayor Condon and Ms. Sanders if that older complaint had anything to do with this. They told me it did not, and that there was no complaint from (Cotton) on file.5. Straub says he fought to keep the reasons for his forced resignation off the press release.
Members of the police leadership team expressed concerns in recent weeks about Straub's management style. They submitted letters last week summarizing their concerns."I objected to this language. The entire point of my resignation was to prevent harm to my reputation," Straub said. For two hours, Straub says, he unsuccessfully pleaded with Coddington and Isserlis to remove that language.
Spokane Mayor David Condon accepted Straub’s resignation today and reassigned him to work on criminal justice initiatives and assistant in the transition to the new chief after some police leadership members submitted letters last week summarizing their concerns about his management style.Further upsetting Straub, the city also distributed two letters from police leaders discussing their concerns. Straub says he had fervently disagreed with those letters, but his requests for an investigation into the matter were rebuffed.
Within days, with continued intense media publication regarding my "misconduct," the mayor began telling the media and the public that employee Monique Cotton had also filed a sexual harassment complaint against me months before, and that he didn't tell the public because he wanted to protect her. He issued a press release now entitled "MAYOR CONDON'S STATEMENT ON PERSONNEL MATTER" and in it, states that "our concern from the beginning has been for the employee...Yet Condon wasn't the one who revealed Monique Cotton's sexual harassment allegations. In fact, when the Inlander asked, "were there any sexual harassment complaints lodged against Frank?" on Sept. 22, Condon gave a flat out "no."
