DNC Chair Calls for Iowa Caucus to be Completely Recanvassed Amidst Chaos and Calamity

He wants to prolong the agony.

Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez wants Iowa Democratic officials to recanvass the state’s entire caucus after Monday’s display turned into a national embarrassment and disgrace.

“Enough is enough,” Perez said in a tweet. “In light of the problems that have emerged in the implementation of the delegate selection plan and in order to assure public confidence in the results, I am calling on the Iowa Democratic Party to immediately begin a recanvass.”

A recanvassing would stretch out the proceedings even longer, but it could reveal some discrepancies in the vote total. It would require caucus worksheets and reporting sheets to be audited by hand in order to ensure they were correct, at least theoretically.

It has been nearly three days since the Iowa caucuses were completed, but the results are not yet fully known. Former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg is keeping his lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont by an extremely narrow margin with 97 percent of the results being reported. It is still up for grabs at this point.

Nevertheless, Buttigieg declared himself the winner on caucus night before any totals had been released, which sparked a great deal of controversy.

“So we don’t know all the results, but we know by the time it’s all said and done, Iowa, you have shocked the nation,” he said on Monday night while addressing his supporters in Des Moines. “Because by all indications, we are going on to New Hampshire victorious.”

“We brought together an extraordinary coalition of Americans, progressives, moderates … and future former Republicans. And that’s how we’re going to win in November, because it’s about adding people to our cause, adding to our majority,” Buttigieg boasted.

“We have exactly one shot to defeat Donald Trump. We’re not going to do it by overreaching, we’re not going to do it by dividing, we’re not going to do it by saying ‘it’s my way or the highway,’ ” he added.

However, it may not have been Buttigieg’s coalition-building skills that gave him the edge in Iowa. It may have been dirty tactics at the caucus level and connections with the firm that designed the voter app that was reportedly the cause for all this mayhem.

Footage produced from a precinct caucus shows an official seemingly looking at the coin after flipping it and then turning it in a certain manner to award delegates to Buttigieg:

In addition, Buttigieg’s campaign paid tens of thousands of dollars last year to Shadow, Inc., the tech firm with extensive ties to the Democrat establishment that developed the malfunctioning app causing the Iowa caucus to devolve into a farce for Democrats. Pete for America, Inc. is listed as giving two payments of $21,250 to Shadow in July 2019.

Shadow is a tech project of ACRONYM. Free speech platform Gab noted that ACRONYM founder and CEO Tara McGowan is a huge Buttigieg supporter, as evidenced by her social media posts:

A recanvassing may help straighten out some of the confusion, or perhaps deliberate rigging, of the Iowa caucus vote. But with Democrats in charge, there could possibly be even more hijinx and folly to emerge from the recanvassing effort as well.

President Donald Trump Will Move the 2020 Republican Convention Out of North Carolina

The state had interfered in the convention.

Published

President Donald Trump confirmed that he will move the 2020 Republican Convention away from Charlotte, North Carolina in a series of tweets Tuesday night. The state’s Democratic governor, Roy Cooper, had refused to allow the Republican Party to conduct the event at full capacity, citing supposedly necessary coronavirus social distancing restrictions.

The event was slated to be held in late August, well after the apex of the national coronavirus epidemic. Cooper still refused to allow the Republican Party to proceed with its plans to hold a full-sized major party political convention.

The loss of the Republican convention is set to cost North Carolina millions of dollars in revenue for the state’s economy. Major party conventions are regularly sought by governors and mayors, but it appears that Cooper’s desire to restrict the GOP convention overrode his desire for the benefits of the event.

The President had earlier been threatening to move the convention if North Carolina failed to give the Republican Party the green light to proceed in organizing for its convention as planned.

Sources indicate that GOP officials are already scouting out potential alternative locations for the party’s convention. Early reports suggest that either Arizona or Florida could be selected as possible replacement locations for the event, with both states set to be competitive electoral battlegrounds in the fall presidential election.

Arizona Republican Debbie Lesko called for the RNC to move the convention to her Glendale-area district, and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has suggested that the state would be willing to welcome the President and Republicans across the country for the crucial political event.
