It would appear as though the Mayor of Flint saw the water crisis as an opportunity to fatten her campaign coffers.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/lawsuit-accuses-flint-mayor-trying-redirect-water-crisis-004515702.html

Henderson's lawsuit alleged that Mayor Karen Weaver ordered her assistant and a volunteer to redirect donors from a local fund set up to help families affected by the water crisis to her political action committee instead.

The lawsuit charged that the city employee was "specifically directed" to instruct people "step-by-step" to donate to the mayor's "Karenabout Flint" fund through its website, rather than the Charity Safe Water/Safe Homes fund through the city's website.

Neither the Flint City Council nor the charity approved a redirection of donors, the lawsuit said.
