Democrats discover errors in Iowa Caucus results

from RT

Iowa Democratic Party officials have found errors in its caucus results after a review and are making updates, according to The Des Moines Register.

The news comes as many Democrats and media outlets raise concerns about the accuracy of Monday’s results.

Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton was declared the winner, defeating rival Bernie Sanders by just 0.2 percentage points, with Clinton earning 49.9 percent of the vote to Sanders’ 49.6 percent. Monday’s caucus showed the second-highest number of participants and the closest results in Democratic caucus history.

“Both the Sanders and Clinton campaigns have flagged a very small number of concerns for us, and we are looking at them all on a case-by-case basis,” Iowa Democratic Party spokesman Sam Lau told the Register on Friday.

The editorial board of the Register called for a “complete audit” that would include a release of raw vote totals, plus the results of coin tosses used to break ties according to caucus rules.

  1. I like how CNN reported that Sanders won 5 out of 6 coin tosses against Hillary and the one coin toss against O’Malley. Bernie winning 6 out of 7 kind of makes Hillary winning 6 out of 6 against Bernie look less suspicious, now doesn’t it? I’m just going to go ahead and assume C(IA)NN is full of shit and Hillary stole Iowa.
