Recount: Iowa’s DEMOCRAT Coin Toss Caucus Doesn’t Pass Smell Test

The Des Moines Register has joined the Sanders’ campaing in calling for an official recount of the Democrat caucus vote, demanding a raw vote count in place of the delegate count.  The Iowa Democrats’ Coin Toss Caucus just doesn’t pass the smell test.

Sanders’ campaign manager Jeff Weaver hasn’t actually dropped the “F” bomb by accusing Hillary of fraud, specifically, but has told reporters they are “looking into a few other issues” and “hoped there would be an investigation into what happened.”

Which Candidate Do You Support in the Republican Primaries?

Scenes such as that caught on video by C-SPAN depicting apparent voting “irregularities” (read, fraud) are raising hackles among Sanders’ supporters who think Hillary committed fraud.  The Des Moines Democrat Precinct #43 Caucus Chair, one Drew Gentsch, reported that during that precinct’s caucus they “lost three people the ‘melee.'”  (see video at 4:40)

No less hackle-raising was the statistically unlikely (as in super, duper unlikely) happenstance of Hillary winning all six precincts decided by coin-tosses.  Honestly, with that kind of consistency, those coin flippers need to go to Vegas.

Unnerving as well was the circus-clown atmosphere in some of the Democrat caucuses, which are not reassuring scenes of democracy-in-action.  One caucus, as an example, is described to have deteriorated into sheer chaos:

The scene at precinct No. 42 was “chaos” Monday night.  None of the 400-plus Democrats wanted to be in charge of the caucus, so a man who had shown up just to vote reluctantly stepped forward. As [Jill] Joseph was leaving with the untrained caucus chairman, who is one of her neighbors, ‘I looked at him and said, ‘Who called in the results of our caucus?’ And we didn’t know.’

With the upcoming New Hampshire primary, the Sanders campaign must focus its energy on that critical election.  In the meantime, Sanders hopes at least to get a raw vote count from Iowa, believing he may have won the popular vote in the virtual-tie caucus.

While the shenanigans in the Iowa caucus may not get fully investigated, which is a shame, we still get to enjoy the rich irony of Democrats pointing fingers at each other for what they always lecture Republicans as non-existent voting fraud.

Watch the chaos here:
