Erin Brockovich Blames Flint Water Crisis on “Greed,” “Corruption”

WASHINGTON, DC - APRIL 23:  Consumer advocate Erin Brockovich addresses a rally against the federal government's support for what they say is a known polluter on Capitol Hill April 23, 2014 in Washington, DC. Veterans, their families and environmental and consumer advocates rallied to protest the Department of Justice's support for electronic manufacturer CTS Corporation, the defendant in the U.S. Supreme Court case CTS Corportation v. Waldburger. It was revealed in the 1980s that Camp LeJeune had one of the most contaminated public drinking water supply ever discovered in the United States and now one of the biggest cluster of male breast cancer cases ever identified. Ensminger helped uncover the contamination after his 9-year-old daughter died of leukemia.  (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)
