Well folks if even the Iowa paper of record the Des Moines Register says there’s something rotten in Davenport (as opposed to Denmark) there must be some kind of notice taken, unless you still watch the Mockingbird media.
Politico reports via the DMR, the paper is calling for an audit of the Democratic Caucus results.
The piece “Editorial: Something smells in the Democratic Party,” begins with “Once again the world is laughing at Iowa.”
Ah, but it gets WORSE from there.
What happened Monday night at the Democratic caucuses was a debacle, period. Democracy, particularly at the local party level, can be slow, messy and obscure. But the refusal to undergo scrutiny or allow for an appeal reeks of autocracy. The Iowa Democratic Party must act quickly to assure the accuracy of the caucus results, beyond a shadow of a doubt.
The paper also said things were ripe for errors to happen
Too many accounts have arisen of inconsistent counts, untrained and overwhelmed volunteers, confused voters, cramped precinct locations, a lack of voter registration forms and other problems. Too many of us, including members of the Register editorial board who were observing caucuses, saw opportunities for error amid Monday night’s chaos.
Laughingly, the paper is calling for “transparency.” IT IS TO LAUGH!
