Bateman's Gray Analogy

Democratic City-Councilor Paul Bateman explains to the Star why he switched his vote at a City-County Council meeting this past week, providing the final vote needed to pass a censure motion against the ethically-challenged former council president Monroe Gray, which has dragged on for more than a year:

"If it was deadlocked, they would continue to drag his name through the mud," Bateman said. "It's like if you're in a war and you find someone fatally wounded. You shoot him to get it over with."

I'm not quite sure Gray would agree with Bateman's analogy.
