What led the writer for Yahoo! Shine down this ungrammatical path? Does she think that the verbs read and lead are genetically related and that the past tense of lead is just like the past tense of read?

They’re not. The past tense of read (pronounced REED) is read (pronounced RED). The past tense of lead (pronounced LEED) is led (pronounced LED).
