Four Democratic officials and political operatives have pleaded guilty to voter fraud-related felony charges in an alleged scheme to steal an election in Troy, N.Y., FoxNews.com reports.

The group forged signatures on applications for absentee ballots and on the ballots themselves in a 2009 primary of the Working Families Party, which was affiliated with now-defunct community group ACORN.

Voters whose signatures were forged expressed outrage to Fox. “I feel extremely violated,” said Brian Suozzo.

Former Troy Democratic City Clerk William McInerney, Democratic Councilman John Brown, and Democratic political operatives Anthony Renna and Anthony DeFiglio entered guilty pleas in the case. They admitted to one count of various charges, ranging from forgery to falsifying business records, and criminal possession of a forged instrument.

In November 2009, DeFiglio told New York State police investigators that forging absentee ballots represented business as usual and was common practice in all political circles.

Troy City Council President Clem Campana pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges including falsifying business records and illegal voting. City Councilman Michael LoPorto and Democratic County Elections Commissioner Edward McDonough were indicted earlier this year and are set to go on trial for felony charges in January.
