Iowa Democratic Party Chair Resigns After Disasterous Caucus Management

The release of Iowa caucus results was extremely poorly managed.

The Chairman of the Iowa Democratic Party is resigning after the party failed to promptly release results of the first in the nation Iowa Caucus.

Troy Price announced his resignation on Friday. He had become a target of criticism from Democrats in the state and nationally for the failure of the party to adequately release caucus results the night of the event.

The party claimed that it needed additional time to perform “quality assurance” on the election results, leading to a confusing situation in which final results for the caucus weren’t clear until about a week after the competitive contest. Ultimately Bernie Sanders won the caucuses’ popular vote, whereas Pete Buttigieg won the most delegates.

The Iowa party went on to blame the third-world style election processing on the failure of an app designed for precinct party leaders to report results. The confusion has cast a degree of doubt upon the caucus results, with some suspecting that a finger was placed on the scale in order to push the establishment favorite Buttigieg over the top.

The app the Iowa Democrats are blaming for the flop was developed by a suspect, oligarch-funded tech company with personnel connections to Buttigieg. The CEO of Acronym, the company that developed the “Shadow” app, is married to a senior staffer on the former South Bend mayor’s campaign, an obvious conflict of interest that somehow appears to have been either ignored or kept under the rug.

Price admitted that “Democrats deserved better than what happened on caucus night,” in a resignation letter. “As chair of this party, I am deeply sorry for what happened and bear the responsibility for any failures on behalf of the Iowa Democratic Party.”

Price’s resignation is the bare minimum. Voters in future primary states will be watching closely for incompetent election recording or potential shady tricks.

Mitt Romney Admits: Trump Likely to Be Re-Elected

Just weeks ago, Romney was voting to impeach Trump.

Published

on

Mitt Romney admitted during a Munich Security Conference panel in Germany that President Donald Trump is “likely” to be re-elected on Friday.

Romney’s admission could be interpreted as a tacit admission that the Utah Republican was seeking to overturn the likely will of the American voter in the 2020 election. Romney was the only Republican to vote to convict Trump on Democratic impeachment charges, claiming he warranted removal from office for temporarily suspending foreign aid to Ukraine.

I can tell you I think it’s likely he will get reelected, not because he’s highly popular, but because I think the Democrats are not going to nominate someone who’ll be a very effective competitor.

Romney’s answer when asked about Trump’s re-election chances seems to suggest he believes Democrats are going to nominate Bernie Sanders. Establishment conservatives such as Romney often tend to underestimate populist political figures such as Sanders in a similar manner that they did Trump in the 2016 election. (Romney did admit that he “did not predict that President Trump would become President Trump.”)

Romney was lauded for his impeachment vote by the crowd at the annual event, a mainstay institution for the western political elite. A moderator for the panel claimed he “probably the most courageous lawmaker we have in the United States.”

The failed 2012 presidential candidate may have alienated himself even further from the Republican party with remarks that seemed dismissive of his Senate colleagues, describing them as beholden to the President.

In what may have been his most self-reflective remarks of the night, Romney admitted there was little to no desire among the American public for the outdated liberal conservative principles he’s known for.

Right now, the nature of American politics is highly populist… I’m perhaps a throwback. I jokingly say I have about 2% of the population that’s with me.”

I think that might be a bit on the high side, Mitt.
