Congressman reaches out to author of controversial article

Posted: Updated:
FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Congressman Dan Kildee is responding to a controversial article regarding the city of Flint.

Last week, the website "PolicyMic" posted a story on Flint, calling it "America's Most Apocalyptic, Violent City."

The story quickly went viral and has earned its writer, Laura Dimon, a lot of backlash.

Many were upset she didn't ever visit Flint while writing the article, something Dimon has since said she hopes to change.

Now the Democrat is working to make that happen, tweeting "Name a date and [I'll] happily show you the true story of Flint and the determination of the people who live here."
