Alabama Democrats appoint dead man to party committee

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Reynolds Smith Jr. was a stalwart Democratic
voter in stark-red Alabama. But the Alabama Democratic Party
overlooked another fact when it appointed Smith to an interim party
panel: he died in November at age 83.

Party executive director Jim Spearman told the Press-Register
Tuesday that the mistake was caused by outdated records.

He said the party received Smith's name from a 2006 list of candidates for the 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.
