Does Ken Bennett understand the job description for Secretary of State?

One of the biggest parts of the job description for SOS is the conduct of elections. He's supposed to make sure they go off without a hitch, not to be the cause of a hitch.

From the Arizona Daily Sun -
About 13,000 households in Coconino County were told to go to the wrong polling place on their state elections pamphlet due to an error by a contractor working for the state.

Ummm, yeah.

Got a radical new concept for Secretary Bennett - proofread.

BTW - This incident doesn't say much for the idea of privatizing vital government services (and for some reason, most people consider the fair, honest, and competent conduct of elections to be an integral part of our system of government.

Not a good week for Bennett, with this incident following on the heels of lawsuits against him and a company he runs for things like securities fraud, breach of contract, and failure to pay his employees.
