NY: Bad data in committee members

Description

Look at the NY Senate Rules committee members:
http://www.nysenate.gov/committee/rules

The chair is Dean Skelos, and vice-chair is Tom Libous. When I queried for the committee details for this committee ID (NYC000030), this was included in the member list:

{
"leg_id": null,
"role": "chair",
"name": "Sen.\r\nTom Libous"
},
{
"leg_id": "NYL000055",
"role": "member",
"name": "Sen. Dean G. Skelos"
},
{
"leg_id": null,
"role": "member",
"name": "Contact"
},
{
"leg_id": null,
"role": "member",
"name": "RSS"
},
{
"leg_id": "NYL000033",
"role": "member",
"name": "Sen. Tom Libous"
},
{
"leg_id": null,
"role": "member",
"name": "Facebook"
},

There are several things wrong with this:

  • The wrong person is listed as chair. "Sen.\r\nTom Libous" isn't even valid.

  • Sen Libous is listed twice, the second time as a member (not vice-chair), and again not a valid firstname - lastname, but thankfully with a leg_id.

  • "Sen. Dean G. Skelos" is listed as a member, not chair. Name is not properly formatted, but again, leg_id is more important.

  • Contact, RSS, Facebook – obviously not committee members.
