Default Brian P Lafferty defends criminal conducts by the board

Assuming that the ballots were not stolen or given under coercion, I
don't know what can be done, or if anything should be done. If a
person asked another for recommendations to follow and filled them in
verbatim, how would that be materially different from handing the
ballot to that person and saying, "I trust your judgment, fill it in
as you think best."

He asked about ethics, not "what you can get away with".

If you don't understand the difference between the two cases you
present, then no explanation can possibly help you.
