Senator calls for legal action against GM

Says the organization needs to be held accountable for deaths resulting from faulty ignition switches

General Motors has already received considerable heat for its failure to handle issues with defective ignition switches, but now in addition to cries for monetary compensation for those affected, Senator Claire McCaskill, a Democrat from Missouri, is calling for criminal charges against the company.

Those remarks came from McCaskill on April 6, during an appearance on ABC’s roundtable “This Week.” McCaskill says that the car maker faced a real moment of truth regarding the issues. At least six deaths have been attributed to the faulty switches.
