Alison Lundergan Grimes misused Kentucky voter-registration data

Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes is being skewered by Kentucky’s Republican Party after a report Monday found she and her staff used the state’s voter-registration system to make questionable searches.

Grimes, who passed on running for governor this year, has been under intense scrutiny for months over claims she has abused her role as the state’s chief election officer.

An investigation by ProPublica and the Lexington Herald-Leader released Monday shows that Grimes’s staff used the voter-registration database for extensive searches of state employees, prominent officials and potential rivals, including Democratic gubernatorial candidate Rocky Adkins.

Republican spokesman Tres Watson said Monday that his party has voiced numerous concern about Grimes’ access and use of the system. He said the news report goes beyond its previous fears.
