    as been

    "The group offered rides to caucus-goers but with no intent on boosting Huckabee's, he said, adding that AFFT as been "very careful" to enforce the line between issue advocacy and politicking."

    I got this extract off the FOX NEWS website. I'm wondering if "as been" is a typo or dialect for "as was"?

    Re: as been

    Do you think the sentence would be grammatical if it were "as was"?

    No. How would you explain "as been"? Was it not properly proofread?

    It's a typo. Try to think yourself what was meant. It's not very difficult in this particular case.
