IOWA RIGGED?! Latest News Out of DNC Has Speculation Running Rampant

Democratic voters have every reason to be a little tense this week, particularly after the ugly shenanigans that went down in the Hawkeye State.

The Iowa caucuses took place on Monday, but the results from the all-important early voting contest are still unclear thanks to the major malfunctioning of a smartphone app that was meant to make the entire process run smoother than ever before.

Obviously, that didn’t happen, and no one really knows why.  After-the-fact investigations have revealed a number of odd facts regarding the program, namely that its development has ties to both Hillary Clinton and Pete Buttigieg, that latter of which declared a surprising victory on Monday night…with 0% of the precincts officially reported.

Furthermore, today’s push to recanvass the entire state by DNC Chair Tom Perez is itself another connection to the aforementioned Clinton, and is spurring a number of new conspiracy theories about the event.

Thursday’s announcement by Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez calling for a complete recanvass of the results reported from Monday’s Iowa Democratic Caucuses heightened speculation that the 2020 Democratic presidential nominating process is rigged against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

Many Sanders supporters believe the 2016 Democratic nomination process was rigged by the Democratic National Committee to give the nomination to Hillary Clinton, and Perez’s announcement on Thursday did little to dispel the growing notion the same thing is happening again in 2020.

Perez’s call for a recanvass also overshadowed the report early Thursday morning that Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) are in a virtual tie in the race for state delegate equivalents in the Iowa Democratic caucuses conducted on Monday, with 97 percent of precincts reporting.

Sanders’ supporters have been skeptical of the DNC ever since their collusion with the 2016 Clinton campaign was revealed by Wikileaks years ago.

The Iowa debacle certainly isn’t going to help change that image.
