A U.S. Senator wants to see General Motors’ general counsel fired in response to the company’s handling of ignition system defects.
Michael Millikin was the latest GM executive that felt the wrath of Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) and other senators this week, though he still has the support of GM CEO Mary Barra.
In his testimony, Millikin said, “I know we as a company, and I personally, have a responsibility to make sure this never happens again.”
“The investigation conducted by Anton Valukas revealed the failures behind the ignition switch recall, including those of the Legal Staff,” he added. “As general counsel, I am ultimately responsible for the legal affairs of the company.”
