Has Sam Reed Bothered To Look?

Today's edition of The Seattle Times contains an article stating the huge number of illegitimate voter registrations that have been eliminated from the relatively new statewide data base.

It also contains this disingenuous statement of Secretary of State Sam Reed:

The total includes 35,445 duplicate records and 19,579 entries for dead people. But Reed said he suspects that very few people voted twice.

Sam Reed hasn't even tried to find out how many illegal votes have been cast using those bogus voter registrations, so what is the basis for what he claims to "suspect"?

He simply wants to continue to mislead the public by making baseless statements about the integrity of our elections process.

The end of his term of office cannot come too soon.
