The Des Moines Register (the same one that endorsed HRC) is calling for an audit of the Democratic caucus results. The Editorial board saw to many questionable things happening at last Mondays Iowa caucus, and they're demanding an audit to answer as what happened Monday at the caucus and to prevent another caucus debacle in the future.

The IDP's “Andy” McGuiresays no to any sharing or auditing of the elections raw data.

Many wondered how HRC was able to declare herself winner in such a close race?

Dr. Andrea “Andy” McGuire head of the IDP is a long time supporter HRC supporter with the vanity License plate (HRC 2016)!


The Iowa Democratic party chair who is refusing to release raw vote totals from Monday’s state caucuses is a long-time Hillary Clinton supporter who donated to the politician’s various campaigns and who reportedly drives a Buick with the license plate “HRC 2016.”



Dr. Andrea “Andy” McGuire has shot down calls to review vote tallies from Monday’s contest despite Clinton’s razor-thin win over Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. The former secretary of state squeaked by the democratic socialist, hauling in 49.9 percent of state delegate equivalents versus Sanders’ 49.6 percent.

The Register, which endorsed Clinton, is calling for a full audit that would include a release of raw vote totals and the results of coin tosses.

"Too many questions have been raised. 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," the Register writes.

"Too many of us, including members of the Register editorial board who were observing caucuses, saw opportunities for error amid Monday night’s chaos."

The Register notes that the party's refusal to provide additional accountability "confirm[s] the suspicions, wild as they may be, of Sanders supporters."

The Iowa Democratic Party must act quickly to assure the accuracy of the caucus results, beyond a shadow of a doubt.

First of all, the results were too close not to do a complete audit of results. Two-tenths of 1 percent separated Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. A caucus should not be confused with an election, but it’s worth noting that much larger margins trigger automatic recounts in other states.

Second, too many questions have been raised. 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.



The Sanders campaign is rechecking results on its own, going precinct by precinct, and is already finding inconsistencies, said Rania Batrice, a Sanders spokeswoman. The campaign seeks the math sheets or other paperwork that precinct chairs filled out and were supposed to return to the state party. They want to compare those documents to the results entered into a Microsoft app and sent to the party.

“Let’s compare notes. Let’s see if they match,” Batrice said Wednesday.

Dr. Andy McGuire, chairwoman of the Iowa Democratic Party, dug in her heels and said no. She said the three campaigns had representatives in a room in the hours after the caucuses and went over the discrepancies.

Rigging the game in Iowa.

This kind of dilligence is exactly what we need.

We are all aware the politicians are corrupt and employ various methods of convincing us that our votes do not matter, however when enough people have had enough, our power knows no bounds!

I imagine old Hilldog would like for this to get swiped under the rug and is probably beginning to realize her win is not as "secure" as the elite like to try and sell it!

HRC wishes she could just wipe this away, with that magic cloth she used on the server hdd.

Iowa does have a voter fraud hotline, I would love to see their complaint file for 2016!

The fact the Des Moines Register both endorsed HRC, and is calling for the audit of IDP raw data, makes it all the more creditable.

They need better rules.

A coin toss is a horrible way to decide an election.

The Des Moines Register and The Iowa Democratic party chair are cleverly in league.

They make out like they're oh-so-concerned and outraged !!!

Watch how they miraculously discover errors that will give Hillary an extra delegate.

Interesting. For a country that prides itself on being for the people and by the people, I find it conflicting and even criminal that the vote tallies are not open for public review. How can the public trust voting results from people who align themselves with a particular candidate?

I'm not familiar with how they tally the votes, but I would think they should have a representative of all the candidates present when votes are tallied to eliminate the possibility of some votes not being counted. Every result should then be made public.

McGuire is close to Clinton in other ways. In 2007 she was appointed to the Women’s Leadership Council for Team Hillary, a group of 250 women whose goal was to help Clinton reach the White House.

The voters are being cheated by DWS and the DNC and now first state to caucus and the voters of Iowa are being played by Andy McGuire. I hope there are not 248 more of these moles from the Women’s Leadership Council for Team Hillary in key positions to rig the election.

Talk about brazen! To allow a person to be put in charge who is blatantly in league with team Hillary. A person who it could certainly be said owes her favors... and if you've been paying attention, you know it's all about favors owed and favors repaid with her, as dictated by the rulebook of Chicago-style politics.

HRC 2016! If it weren't so infuriating, it'd be hilarious.

Bernie just said in the Debate tonight that he agrees with the Register's call.

I was curious and did some checking, i found The Des Moines Register is Iowa's largest newspaper.


Iowa's largest newspaper roasted the state's Democrats Thursday for how they handled this year's caucus.

"What happened Monday night at the Democratic caucuses was a debacle, period," the Des Moines Register's editorial board wrote. "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 paper took particular shots at the state party chairwoman, Dr. Andy McGuire, for refusing to consider concerns about the vote count raised by the Bernie Sanders campaign. "The answer is that we had all three camps in the tabulation room last night to address any grievances brought forward, and we went over any discrepancies. These are the final results," she told the Register.

HRC makes Donald Trump look like, Mr Nice Guy!

Thanks Alaskan, and the bump is yours for sure. I'm even old
enough to remember Ted Stevens, for better or worse.
And the Sanders campaign is already finding inconsistencies.
There's three words that mean everything-- we're not even to Florida
yet and there seem to be thumbs on the scales. Hope the cross-
bar doesn't get bent up enough for We the Pleble to notice on TV..

Here's peek ahead to Nevada:


I headed across town, toward the Carson City Democratic Party headquarters.

Upon arriving, I met three smartly dressed men getting ready for an event they said was an opening party for the Clinton campaign's local field office. Registering my curiosity, one of them pointed to the back, and explained that the Clinton campaign was renting an office in the party headquarters.

With its walls papered with Hillary Clinton signs, and the seats carefully arranged for the Hillary for America ribbon-cutting, it was hard to tell where the Democratic Party's office ended and the Clinton office began. There were a few signs referencing Obama and the Affordable Care Act, but as far as I could tell, there weren't any that mentioned the two other Democrats running for president. And sure enough, both the Carson City Democratic Party and Hillary for America's Carson City field office list 502 E. John Street,

It's definitely worth the read!

good thinking!

i find it interestingly odd they tied in 6 places and she won the coin toss 6 times.

i mean, i've only seen the totals and %'s but no breakdown of precincts or whatever they use.
like how many "places" total, were in play?

anyway, bernie is gonna smoke her in NH.

Recently I saw where Sen. Sanders said "we have two more delegates in the air," so the IDP may be negotiating over the results.

You're Welcome!

I am not sure what is accepted vs kept from the public.

Sen Sanders already has Americans asking questions, it is starting!

When a good man dies, his friends should become demons.
But only unto the living. I appreciate your response, and
wish only for the exposure of the system that made him a
leper for their own gain. Ted Stevens is where I started digging
in the Alaska system, and was amazed to say the least.

Also listen to Ralph Winterrowd on an unspecified (T&C) stream;
and may even be starting to learn the real law. Thank you.

And the Clinton fraud begins to be exposed!




Iowans claim instances when Sanders was shorted delegates





Keane Schwarz is certain he knows the outcome of the vote in his precinct: He was the lone caucusgoer in Woodbury County No. 43.

But the Iowa Democratic Party's final results state that Hillary Clinton won one county delegate and Bernie Sanders received zero.

"I voted for Bernie," Schwarz, 36, of Oto, told The Des Moines Register. “It was really suspicious … I’m actually pretty irate about it.”

Some complaints that Iowa Democrats have shared with the Register about discrepancies in caucus results appear to be valid. Others stem from confusion over how the math-heavy delegate-awarding system works in the Democrats' caucus process.
