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.
SLEEPY: Joe Biden Campaign Team Pulls Joe from Daily Activities at 8:35AM, Months Before Election
Joe Biden’s press relations teams announced a “lid” to the traveling press pool at 8:34 EST on Saturday, surprising some observers with the announcement that the Democratic candidate would not make any public appearances on a Saturday merely seven weeks before the November presidential election.
Biden is taking it easy for the day at his home in Wilmington, Delaware.
The Biden campaign has called a lid at 8:35am, per pool. So we won’t see Joe Biden today.

After facing skepticism for the decision from some of the traveling press, a Biden campaign operative made it seem as if the off-day was some sort of calculated plan.
.@edokeefe reports the Biden move to lay low may seem “odd or misguided”, but his team disagrees.
A senior aide said, “We’ve been through some high-pressure times before and we’re always deliberate about how we respond…People will question our tactics and we’ll do our thing.”

Biden has surprised even friendly corporate media reporters covering his campaign with his amount of ‘off-days,’ consistently declining to actively campaign for the Presidency as the nation approaches the election.
The former Vice President appeared later than he usually does in public Friday night, reading from a prepared statement mourning the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Perhaps the “late night” (it was only about 9PM local time) appearance in public derailed Biden’s plans for possible campaign stops the next day. It’s relatively unprecedented for a major party presidential candidate to simply decline to campaign seven weeks before an election in the modern era of campaigns and elections.

Biden doesn’t even really have the energy to campaign. How is he going to govern as President?
