votes attributed to "Shaw" and to "Townsend" in 2013-2014

Description

The following is in reference to 2014-08-02-vt-json/bills/vt/2013-2014

1) There were two active representatives named "Shaw":

Shaw Charles: VTL000156 Rutland-6
Shaw Loren: VTL000305 Orleans-1

but their votes have apparently all been collapsed to:

"leg_id": null, "name": Shaw".

It seems to be impossible to attribute these votes to the appropriate legislator based on the OpenStates data.

(2) There is a similar situation with respect to "Townsend".

Townsend Larry VTL000167
Townsend Maida VTL000319

Since Larry Townsend dies in 2013, it is possible to attribute the 2014 votes properly.
