After Iowa Caucus App Crashes, DHS Claims Dems Didn’t Allow for Testing

This negligence on the part of the Democratic Party mustn’t go unpunished.

The Iowa caucuses have come and gone, yet we still don’t really know who won.

It was an embarrassing moment for the Democratic Party, who were ready to unveil a winner in this first-in-the-nation live voting for the 2020 primaries, and finally put to rest some of the more rampant speculation that was surrounding the already-wild field.

But, when it came time to utilize a new voting app in The Hawkeye State, all hell broke loose.  Results in to the Democrat Party were partial, at best, and hardly reliable.

During a Tuesday morning interview on Fox and Friends, acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said that Iowa Democrats refused when the department’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency offered to test the app to ensure its security.

“[We] had offered to test that app from a hacking perspective. They declined, and so, we’re seeing a couple of issues with it. I would say, right now, we don’t see any malicious cyber activity going on,” Wolf said.

He added, “No one hacked into it, so this is more of a stress or a load issue, as well as a reporting issue that we’re seeing in Iowa. But what I would say is that, given the amount of scrutiny that we have on election security these days, this is a concerning event, and it really goes to the public confidence of our elections.”

Wolf’s remarks contradicted a report in the New York Times that the Iowa Democratic Party said the app had been vetted by the department before the caucuses. Iowa Democratic Party Chairman Troy Price also told the Wall Street Journal that he was “confident in the security systems we have in place.”

This is an embarssing oversight by the Democratic Party, especially after their purported concerns over the possibility of Russian interference in the 2020 election.  By refusing to allow DHS to take a crack at this app, the left was simply negligent.
