Failure: Democrat Officials Admit Errors in Previously-Released Results From Iowa Caucus
State Democrat officials are admitting that they flubbed the update in results from Monday’s farcical Iowa caucus that they released to the public earlier on Wednesday.
The newest results were released on Wednesday afternoon and showed South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg maintaining his narrow delegate lead over Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders with 75 percent of counties reporting. Democrats are insisting that only a “minor correction” is needed, but they have not yet explained what that correction will entail.
“There will be a minor correction to the last batch of results and we will be pushing an update momentarily,” the party wrote in a tweet.
Buttigieg remains the leader after the first round of results showed him in the lead. This occurred after he suspiciously declared himself the winner the previous night before any results were released to the public:
Former South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg is leading the Democrat pack with 62 percent of the results from last night’s Iowa caucus being tabulated.
Buttigieg leads the field with 26.9 percent of the delegates while Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has 25.1 percent, Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren (D-MA) with 18.3 percent, and former Vice President Joe Biden at 15.6 percent. Although Sanders has the lead in terms of votes, Buttigieg has claimed more delegates…
Buttigieg has pulled into the lead after declaring himself the victor last night long before any results were released to the public. It’s almost as if he knew something that the rest of us didn’t.
“What a night. Because tonight, an improbable hope became an undeniable reality,” Buttigieg said to his supporters Monday night from his Iowa campaign headquarters in Des Moines.
Buttigieg has been dubbed “Mayor Steal” by angry Sanders’ supporters because of this as well as additional information that has come to light from the Iowa caucus proceedings. One shocking video showed a seemingly rigged coin flip that granted delegates to Buttigieg.

The tech company that designed the app which failed spectacularly at tallying votes also has significant ties to the Buttigieg campaign. Shadow is a tech project of ACRONYM. Free speech platform Gab pointed out that ACRONYM founder and CEO Tara McGowan is a huge Buttigieg supporter, as evidenced by her social media profile:
Buttigieg’s campaign committee, Pete for America, Inc. is listed as giving two large payments of $21,250 to Shadow in July 2019. The campaign claims the money was only for “text messaging services to help us contact voters,” but Buttigieg’s premature proclamation of victory suggests that his campaign may have gotten more far more bang for their buck from Shadow than just texting services.
Big League Politics will continue with updates regarding the Iowa caucus until the complete results are released, hopefully sometime this year.
