“ A West Virginia postal carrier pled guilty to mail and election fraud after admitting he changed the political affiliation on multiple voter ballots from Democrat to Republican.

Thomas Cooper, 47, admitted to attempted election fraud and injury to the mail Thursday after an affidavit was filed against him in May.

Cooper held a contract with the U.S. Postal Service to pick up mail in three towns in Pendleton County. ”

’Pled’ instead of pleaded is acceptable but not ‘Democrat’ for Democratic.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Not for this usage. A member of the Democratic Party is a “Democrat”, not a “Democratic”.

I’m with Speedy. In this usage, I think it’s a characterization of a ballot (ie an adjective), which would call for Democratic.

If the wording on the ballot was “Democrat” and the fraudster changed the voters’ affiliation to “Republican” then no, not erroneous.

Depends on what your definition of "is" is.
