Two documents released Wednesday are raising new questions about the Flint water crisis. And they have one of the state's Democratic leaders calling for Governor Rick Snyder's resignation.

The liberal group, Progress Michigan released an email that was sent by the governor in February of 2015 to one of his aides with a "Rick For Michigan" address, which is what his campaign used.

In it Governor Snyder talks about scheduling a meeting and lists Flint water as one of the topics.

Progress Michigan calls it proof that he knew about the crisis almost nine months before he says he was told.
