Reynolds Smith Jr. was a stalwart Democratic voter, however, the Alabama Democratic Party overlooked a very important fact when it appointed Smith to an interim party panel:
He died in November at age 83.
The mistake was caused by outdated records according to Party executive director Jim Spearman.
He said the party received Smith’s name from a 2006 list of candidates for the Mobile County committee and then used a voter list to verify him as an active voter.
The panel was charged with replacing the local party’s executive committee.
Uh … I think they need to updated their records before they appoint anyone else to any committees!
