Hawarden & Reading Precincts caucused in the same room. I ran the event for both precincts, though they aligned and counted delegates separately. Reading was reported on Tuesday- Hawarden is not reflecting. Only difference? #BernieWon my precinct. @TomPerez LET OUR VOTES REFLECT!

DNC Chairman Tom Perez calls on the Iowa Democratic Party to ‚immediately‘ begin a recanvass

Polk County Democrats Chairman Sean Bagniewski later confirmed to ABC News that the DNC had been calling precinct chairs and asking for results — meaning the national party committee is actively engaging in calling the leaders of each precinct in order to verify the results.

And one Democratic official was told that the DNC was „taking over“ the accounting. The official said that to their knowledge, this has never happened before.

Enough is enough. 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.

Why aren’t any of the Dem candidates speaking out about the situation in Iowa? It’s been FOUR DAYS and they still don’t have a final count? And they’re stealing the election right out from under Bernie and he remains silent. What is going on in this party?

They are SO inept.

Buttigieg Faces Tough Battle to Repeat Iowa Feat in Later States

The once-improbable path for Pete Buttigieg to in the Democratic presidential nomination hinged on a strong performance in the Iowa caucuses.

This is why Pete Buttigieg did well in Iowa


CNN’s John King explains why 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg leads more experienced politicians in the Iowa caucuses.

Pete Buttigieg claimed victory in Iowa before any results were reported


„So we don’t know all the results, but we know by the time, it’s all said and done, Iowa you have shocked the nation. Because by all indications, we are going on to New Hampshire victorious,“ Buttigieg told the crowd in comments that drew criticism online.

This is insane, still no reporting on my precinct here in NW Iowa. We are not a satellite location, we are a precinct of less than 100 people! #BernieWonIA #WTFIDP

Iowa Caucus Results Riddled With Errors and Inconsistencies

The results released by the Iowa Democratic Party on Wednesday were riddled with inconsistencies and other flaws. According to a New York Times analysis, more than 100 precincts reported results that were internally inconsistent, that were missing data or that were not possible under the complex rules of the Iowa caucuses.

06.02.2020 - 14:59 [ Glenn Greenwald / Twitter ]

Nothing that I can remember has damaged faith and credibility in US democracy like what happened in the Iowa Democratic Party caucus.

The Myth Of Incompetence: DNC Scandals Are A Feature, Not A Bug

The Iowa caucus scandal has continued to get more egregious by the hour, with new revelations routinely pouring in about extremely suspicious manipulations taking place which all just so happen to disadvantage the campaign of Bernie Sanders in the first Democratic electoral contest of 2020. By the time you read this article, there will likely have been more.

06.02.2020 - 13:12 [ Jordan / Twitter ]

THERE YOU HAVE IT….@cnn just reported the @DNC is “running the show” on the release and handling of the #IowaCaucus results. It now makes perfect sense why results have been released this way…which just so happened to make @PeteButtigieg look like the winner for 2 days

06.02.2020 - 12:08 [ Glenn Greenwald / Twitter ]

I’ve been resisting the idea that the Iowa debacle was driven by malice, result-manipulation and corruption rather than ineptitude and stupidity — I just hadn’t seen convincing evidence of deliberate fraud — but I’m starting to change my mind:


06.02.2020 - 11:45 [ Sean Bagniewski, Chair of the @polkdems in Iowa / Twitter ]

Still correct that all 177 precincts in Polk were provided to the state party at 2:30 CST. Not sure why they’re not reporting all of them. We’ve received no questions or comments on anything since they left at that time. #iacaucus


06.02.2020 - 11:43 [ Paige Godden / Twitter ]

With just 54 precincts left to report, we still seem to be missing 5-10 precincts from Polk County.

06.02.2020 - 11:28 [ Sean Bagniewski, Chair of the @polkdems in Iowa / Twitter ]

Just to be clear – the Polk numbers were correct, but the state party reported them incorrectly.

06.02.2020 - 11:20 [ Chris Schwartz, Black Hawk County (Iowa) Supervisor / Twitter ]

I’ll be on @democracynow in the morning to discuss the @BernieSanders and @DevalPatrick results mix-up and slow pace of returns in the #IACaucas #NotMeUs

06.02.2020 - 11:14 [ Chris Schwartz, Black Hawk County (Iowa) Supervisor / Twitter ]

The state party is now being forced to walk back their error of giving @BernieSanders delegates to @DevalPatrick who received zero votes in Black Hawk County. Press can dm me.

06.02.2020 - 10:54 [ Kevan McDougall, McMaster University Alumnus / Twitter ]

@nytimes Hey there, spotted a very likely mistake in your data presentation for Polk – Des Moines 14. S.D.E. for Sanders and Warren appears to be switched, based on final alignment numbers. #IowaCaucuses #IowaCaucuses2020

Also confused by this result in Clinton – Eden Camanche Twp. #IowaCaucuses #IowaCaucuses2020

Also interesting data shown for Kossuth GW-SN. #IowaCaucuses #IowaCaucuses2020

And in Warren – Liberty Twp. #IowaCaucuses #IowaCaucuses2020

And in Johnson – Cedar Township #IowaCaucuses #IowaCaucuses2020

And Clinton – Liberty Toronto. #IowaCaucuses #IowaCaucuses2020

Also Muscatine – Orono City. #IowaCaucuses #IowaCaucuses2020

And Scott – (BF) City of Buffalo. #IowaCaucuses #IowaCaucuses2020

And Polk – Des Moines 72. #IowaCaucuses #IowaCaucuses2020

Woodbury – 43 Oto/Oto Township. #IowaCaucuses #IowaCaucuses2020

Dubuque – Dubuque 44 #IowaCaucuses #IowaCaucuses2020

Jefferson – Penn-Pleasant Plain. #IowaCaucuses #IowaCaucuses2020

I hope people like @shaunking @MeetMichael_ @KillerMike @ninaturner are able to see these posts. 13 of 16 precincts in my county are showing on the #IDP website, even though all were reported to the state by @SiouxCountyDems yesterday morning. Where is Hawarden? Bernie won here.

06.02.2020 - 09:51 [ James Payne / Twitter ]

EVERYONE WHO WORKED A PRECINCT FOR BERNIE SHOULD DOUBLECHECK THE @iowademocrats AND @nytimes NUMBERS AND REPORT DISCREPANCIES. They misreported Polk DM 14, stole one of our two delegates.

06.02.2020 - 09:40 [ James Payne / Twitter ]

Here is the raw misreporting on the failing @iowademocrats ’s website. That .27 should be a .52 SDE. Instead, they gave it to Warren. They’re trying to steal this. #IowaCaucuses #iowa #IowaCaucusDisaster

06.02.2020 - 09:39 [ James Payne / Twitter ]

They fucking misreported my precinct. Bernie won 2 delegates in Polk County – Des Moines Precinct 14 in Merle Hay and we fought like hell for them. And @iowademocrats put one of our SDEs in Warren’s column but correctly reported vote. #IowaCaucusDisaster #iowacaucus #iowa

06.02.2020 - 09:26 [ phil / Twitter ]

people are asking me where to report discrepancies. i don’t really know. i’m an entertainer and i found a glaringly obvious data error and sent them an @ reply. i can’t imagine that’s protocol but it worked! and yes, i do find that distressing!

06.02.2020 - 09:11 [ phil / Twitter ]

Replying to @iowademocrats: hey, looks like you accidentally swapped deval patrick’s (left) and bernie’s (right) columns in the rows between WL 3-4 and WL 4-2. you also switched tom steyer and elizabeth warren’s results for the same rows.

06.02.2020 - 08:59 [ Glenn Greenwald / Twitter ]

The Democratic Party doesn’t do accountability. They just blame everything and everyone else they can find. They still think they did nothing wrong in 2016 and were just the victims of wrongdoing by the cast of villains they decided to blame for their own failures.

06.02.2020 - 08:41 [ Gungurl / Twitter ]

48 hours after the Iowa caucus and still no clear „winner“. Yet, we can a national election and have a winner in 2 hours. What are they hiding?

06.02.2020 - 08:30 [ BA / Twitter ]

I just heard there is STILL no winner in Iowa for the Democratic caucus. Thanks to Trump and the people leading the Democratic Party today this party is like a massive dumpster fire.

06.02.2020 - 08:28 [ MeAhh / Twitter ]

Let’s talk about that shit show of a caucus in Iowa… 3rd caucus in a row that they have screwed something up. Time to demand a change, they can’t handle caucuses. Time for a state change. No excuses for what happened 3 days later and still no results! WTF

Wallonisches Parlament stimmt gegen Mercosur

Die wallonische Landwirtschaft funktioniere dank sozialer, ökologischer und gesundheitlicher Normen – das Mercosur-Abkommen hingegen basiere auf Massenproduktion, Genpflanzen, flächendeckendem Einsatz von Antibiotika und billigen Arbeitskräften.
