How do you just miss these votes? How do they just magically disappear?
According to reports today, Iowa was missing approximately 90 precincts, or around 5% of all votes for the democratic caucus. My question is, how? How do you miss 5% of all people. There are literally thousands of volunteers around the state at these voting hubs, sometimes having hundreds of people at one stop alone. How can this happen?!
Here’s the full story as we know it.
The Iowa Democratic Party informed the campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernard Sanders late Monday night that it has no results for 90 precincts across the state, which could account for as much as 5 percent of the total vote. And the party has asked the campaigns for help in getting a tally for those missing results.
“We are, right now, calling all our precinct captains on precincts where we have knowledge of what’s missing, to report what we think happened there,” a visibly irate Robert Becker, Sanders’ state director told Roll Call after Sanders’ speech at the Holiday Inn near the Des Moines airport.
Clinton and Sanders were locked in a virtual tie for most of the evening, with the state party announcing early Tuesday morning that Clinton achieved a slight edge in delegate counts.
Attempts to reach the Clinton campaign early Tuesday were unsuccessful.
More on this story as we have it, but it looks like this could be a case of voter fraud in the highest order.
