To Pander or Not To Pander - that is the Rainey

In a wise choice, pandering politician Milwaukee County Supervisor Khalif Rainey has chosen to drop his ill advised proposal to rename Red Arrow Park after Dontre Hamiltion.

According to an article in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Rainey changed his mind after "After military veterans and their families from all over the state contacted him to voice their opposition to such a change." 

One would have thought that Rainey would have looked into and considered the history of the Park before pandering to a very sad situation.  I guess when you are setting sights on a new office (alderman) there isn't much that will stand in your way - like common sense.
