Google al­ready re­names Se­nate of­fices for McCain

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - - BUSINESS -

While it’s still be­ing de­bated in Congress, Google ap­pears to have gone ahead and re­named the Rus­sell Se­nate Of­fice Build­ing the “McCain Se­nate Of­fice Build­ing” to honor the late Sen. John McCain. If you hover over the “McCain” la­bel, a pop-up that reads “Rus­sell Se­nate Of­fice Build­ing” ap­pears. If you click on the la­bel, in­for­ma­tion about Rus­sell ap­pears in a panel on the left side of the map with no men­tion of McCain. Rus­sell Se­nate Of­fice Build­ing is the Se­nate’s old­est of­fice build­ing and is named for former Ge­or­gia Demo­cratic Sen. Richard Rus­sell, who had pro-seg­re­ga­tion­ist views. Af­ter McCain’s death on Satur­day, sev­eral of his col­leagues pro­posed re­nam­ing the build­ing to honor his ser­vice.
