ABC, Brian Ross/Joseph Rhee, and editorial standards.

If reports are true that Chelsea Clinton and her boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky are considering marriage, the father of the groom won't be able to attend the wedding until he is released from prison in November 2008.

Ed Mezvinsky, a former Democratic Congressman from Iowa, is serving a seven-year sentence for fraud after getting caught up in a series of Nigerian e-mail scams.


Now why would I call special attention to the word Democratic? Would it be because I want to highlight that a Democrat is a crook? Could it be that I don't the "ic" on the end is appropriate in this sentence? Or could it be that the report didn't say that when first posted?

Read the first several user comments to find the answer. I find it awfully difficult to believe that all these commenters made the very same mistake.
