DNC Chair and Hillary Pal Tom Perez Wants a Do-Over in Iowa

The Iowa caucuses were an unadulterated mess, and there’s no telling what a retry is going to do.

The Democrats found themselves on the receiving end of a nasty debacle on Monday night, as the Iowa caucuses devolved into pure and utter chaos.

At the center of the controversy was the use of a controversial smartphone app that was meant to make counting the votes much simpler for those working the polls in the Hawkeye State.  Instead, the newfangled software crashed and burned, refusing to send data to those responsible for tallying results.

Days later, still only a portion of the totals were available to the general public, paving the way for several conspiracy theories to sprout in the wake of the mess.

The head of the DNC now wants a do-over.

Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez is calling on Iowa Democratic officials to immediately recanvass Monday’s caucus vote after days of uncertainty and growing concerns about “inconsistencies” found in the data.

“Enough is enough,” Perez said in a tweet. “In light of the problems that have emerged in the implementation of the delegate selection plan and in order to assure public confidence in the results, I am calling on the Iowa Democratic Party to immediately begin a recanvass.”

A recanvass is essentially a double-checking of the vote. Iowa officials would have to hand -audit the caucus worksheets and reporting forms to ensure that they were correctly calculated and reported.

The DNC’s announcement will do little to reassure those who are fearing that some Democratic Party “home cooking” could be taking place, as Perez was intimately involved in the Hillary Clinton primary-rigging scandal of 2016.
