FLOOD WARNING

March 1, 2017

Royal Oak criminal defense attorney Todd Flood, who spent 10 years in the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office, seems to have thought he hit career jackpot when he was appointed by Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette to lead a special investigation into the Flint water crisis.  Word is he’s been eyeing the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan as his next post – the position Barbara McQuade has done a stellar job at rooting out public corruption, from former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick to cancer doctor Farid Fata. While the U.S. attorney’s position can be a political patronage appointment, Flood’s work as a special investigator has raised questions, from his impartiality due to past political donations and slap on the hands by judges to Schuette on work (which Flood contributed to) for the Flint water crisis. Reliable word is that the U.S. attorney, to be appointed by the Trump administration, will be Matt Schneider, currently Schuette’s deputy attorney general.
