A Michigan judge has dismissed felony charges against seven people charged in the Flint water crisis. Judge Elizabeth Kelly cited a Michigan Supreme Court order in June that charges against former Gov. Rick Snyder and others must be dismissed because the court said the process was invalid.

By 2015, many children of Flint had been found with elevated levels of lead, which can harm brain development and lead to attention and behavior problems.

A new report says Georgia Republican Senate nominee Herschel Walker paid for an abortion for his girlfriend in 2009. Walker has vehemently opposed abortion rights and calls the accusation in The Daily Beast a “flat-out lie." The Daily Beast spoke to a woman who said Walker paid for her abortion when they were dating. The news outlet also reviewed a receipt showing her $575 payment for the procedure, along with a get-well card from Walker and her bank deposit records showing the image of a $700 personal check from Walker. Asked Monday night by Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity whether he remembered sending a $700 check, Walker says he sent people money all the time.

Children’s hospitals nationwide have substantially increased security. Garland did not immediately respond publicly. A spokesperson did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
