From a technical standpoint, "Primaries" are much simpler to run than "Caucuses". But you're right. Democrats lost a lot of brain-power after 2016.

The app that was supposed to help the Iowa Democratic Party quickly report Monday's caucus results – but contributed to confusion and a muddled result as campaigns were in an uproar – is linked to Hillary Clinton campaign veterans.
Shadow is associated with ACRONYM, a nonprofit dedicated to "advancing progressive causes through innovative communications, advertising and organizing programs." Early last year, ACRONYM announced that it was acquiring an SMS tool called Groundbase and, out of Groundbase, "launching Shadow, a company focused on building the technology infrastructure needed to enable Democrats to run better, more efficient campaigns."
ACRONYM also has picked up funding from at least one dark money group. The New Venture Fund gave ACRONYM $250,000 in 2018 and is one of a number of nonprofit groups controlled by Arabella Advisors -- a Washington-based philanthropy company. Both Araballa and New Venture Fund were founded by Eric Kessler, who worked in President Bill Clinton’s administration. Pete Buttigieg's campaign also paid Shadow over $40,000 last year for software.

I couldn't help but remember the enormous amount of money paid for the program for the ACA. You'd think when you pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for a program it would work a wee bit better.

Between ordering a drink from their new bartender to forget about their husband/brother, or as I like to call it "Brusband", issues and failed investigations it seems to have taken a toll on the sky screaming crowd. Maybe Trump knew how to counter their Witches spell somehow. But yeah, their thinking ability became very irrational.



I think I figured it out. When thinking, hate shouldn't lead the way, it clouds the judgment, at least that is what my 5 year old grandson told me, but he is a Republican so he may be bias.

Shadow Software and ACRONYM......are branches of SPECTRE.

The Press can't even seem to figure out who exactly is behind them. Hint, they know but they don't want the public to know.

Mayor Pete is their Great White Hope.

Screw Bernie II is activated.

Everybody just calm down. Bloomberg is going to buy the election. He doesn't even have to campaign in Iowa, NH, SC, or Nevada. He won't have to shake anybody's hands or talk to them up close and personal.

It’s a hot mess to be sure. The whole caucus thing seems a bit goofy and antiquated (a craucus?).

The Iowa dems have egg all over their face for that one.

Talk about a perfect storm:
- An untested app that everyone was downloading at the last minute
- When it failed, or they couldn’t figure it out, they jumped on the backup hotline
- Some reports are suggesting Trumpers were clogging up the hotlines. IF true, that’s actually hilarious.
Political pranking is pretty dang entertaining.

As the above post states, it seems like they cannot fake Biden's poll numbers enough to generate votes so they are rigging it to have Bloomberg take his place. If Bernie is chosen EVERYONE will see the Democrats colluding with Russia. They cannot have that.

It looks like Bernie won easily, but the delegate count was found to be riddled with mistakes in favour of Buttigag.
They screwed Bernie again and got caught and now they have to have a do over.

I saw that. I'm sure it's just an amazing coincidence that Buttigeig donated a lot of money to the company that made the vote-counting software.

That guy doesn't seem to have much real support. Even the LGBT community seems rather lukewarm towards Buttigeig. Yet he's somehow pulling more delegates than Bernie or Warren? I don't think so.

Biden finishing last, I can totally buy. Thanks to the impeachment fiasco, everybody knows Biden is on the take of Ukrainian mobsters. And the people who refuse to accept this still need to overcome the fact that the guy is clearly going senile.

Well to be fair, they wanted Biden in 2nd place so that they can try to gain sympathy that the impeachment caused an effect on their top candidate. They can't handle Biden being too low, it would defeat their accusatory rhetoric.

Now if they can blame buttiegeig campaign, trump, and Russian influencers...well then, they can save their egotististical and proud lies put in place.

The FAIL in that answer is that after recounting...they now want to recanvas the caucas since it still is not what they wanted. Trump supporters obviously have not brought Iowa to this point.

This is why I think electronic voting, in any election, is suspect. I recommend paper trails.

No, they certainly haven't. It's all on the Iowa DNC. I just think it's quite funny that in addition to deploying an untested app, people failing to download it, etc., there was political mischief afoot. It's like the cherry on top of a poop sundae.

He already stepped in. The fix is in. Did no one see Tom Perez DNC convention appointments? Prepare for a brokered convention when bernie sweeps it.

Im not gonna even bother trying to provide better sauce than [url=https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.commondreams.org/views/2020/01/27/tom-perez-stacks-2020-convention-committees-swamp-nominations%3famp]this.[/url ]

Umm, if the Dems vote is stuffed up, then which party profits from that?

I particularly like the video of the low information voter, who cast her vote for Buttigieg and didnt even know he was gay, then wanted to recant her vote........

And the democrats talk about how republicans dont know their candidates..........holy mother of mary
