Sandy Pensler Joins Elon Musk, Commits $500k To Installing Flint Water Filters

US Senate candidate Sandy Pensler is joining Tesla and Space X leader Elon Musk, offering to help provide water filters for Flint residents impacted by the city's water crisis.

Pensler says he will throw down half a million dollars towards the initiative.

According to a press release:

"Elon Musk has a very interesting idea on how to ensure remaining homes get clean water—and to do it fast," Pensler said. "According to the EPA there has been tremendous progress in water quality, but by installing high end filtration systems at houses still under impact we can fix any remaining problems within a few days. To Elon, I will put $500,000 of my own funds behind this. Let’s be innovative. Everyone put politics aside and fix the remaining problems. Elon Musk has my support."

Pensler is battling Iraq War Vet John James for the Republican nomination to take on Sen. Debbie Stabenow in November.

Pensler specializes in turning around businesses on the verge of bankruptcy, James has been involved with his family's business since returning from Iraq.

The race has been heated and nasty, with Pensler attacking James for donating to a pro sanctuary city Democrat, and James responding by calling Pensler a "pro choice liberal."
