Doing some gratis copy-editing for the WNJ

In a story today about Delaware Rodel Secretary of Education Mark Murphy joining the Jeb Bush (R-Daddy was President) education reform group, a suitably anonymous WNJ article says the following:
Murphy is the only sitting school chief in the organization appointed by a Democratic governor, according to the list.
Obviously this was a mere slip of the keyboard, so--as cassandra over at Delawareliberal would say--I fixed it for them:
Murphy is the only sitting school chief in the organization appointed by a Republican governor who favors marriage equality, according to the list.

Working for an education reform group (as a content editor), I always use tools for checking plagiarism and semantics. Some of the typos and mistakes are mentioned in the online guide for content writers. You may look here for the steps how to end the paper. Some useful phrases and words.
