Matt Cartwright Destroys Rick Snyder Over Flint

The Pennsylvania congressman was having none of Rick Snyder's bullshit yesterday.

Cartwright, a former lawyer specializing in consumer protection, sliced and diced the slimy Governor of Michigan up yesterday, until there was nothing left of him. The exchange above has since gone viral on Facebook, now viewed over 2.5 million times.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The lead contamination crisis in Flint, Michigan was the topic of discussion for the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, each of its representatives saying their piece.

But the words from Pennsylvania congressman and Moosic resident Matt Cartwright are resonating far past the nation's capital. His speech after questioning Michigan Governor Rick Snyder has gone viral.

"Plausible deniability only works when it's plausible and I'm not buying that you didn't know about this until October 2015. You were not in a medically induced coma for a year," Rep. Cartwright said during his speech.

Congressman Cartwright interrupts the governor a few times, before eventually calling for his resignation.

"I've had about enough of your false contrition and phony apologies," Cartwright added.
