Detroit Editor Who Called For GOP Murder Concerned About Rhetoric

Henderson’s attempt to deflect blame from Detroit for its own mismanagement is noted, but it’s a hard sell for a city whose last Republican mayor was born in 1897 and left office in 1962. Detroit has been run by Democrats for decades and has struggled with a corrupt government engaged in profligate spending, union control in public and private sectors, and an inability to tackle crime.
