While the Children in Flint Were Given Poisoned Water to Drink, General Motors Was Given a Special Hookup to the Clean Water: Shortly after Gov. Snyder removed Flint from the clean fresh water, GM complained to him that the Flint River water caused their car parts to corrode when washed on the assembly line. The governor jumped through hoops and quietly spent $440,000 to hook GM back up to the Lake Huron water, while keeping the rest of Flint on the river water. While the children in Flint were drinking lead-filled water, only the GM factory was receiving clean water.
