Peter King Absent on Voting Security

From ReformNY we learn that Peter King is one of only 9 NY representatives who have not co-sponsored a key piece of Voting Reform legislation:
Twenty-one out of New York’s 29 Representatives are cosponsoring Congressman Rush Holt’s bill that would establish minimum security requirements for voting systems and minimum procedural requirements for the administration of elections. Most significantly, the bill would mandatevoter-verifiable paper ballots and spells out detailed guidelines for conducting post-election audits. More details in this Press & Sun-Bulletin editorial.
Read the post and the editorial to find out why King ought to support to this measure, if he supports a healthy democracy.
