3. Please stop already.

 

There were nearly 200,000 Iowans who in good faith went to caucus for their candidate. Yes, there was a critical technical failure in transmitting results. And Yes, it might be true that the caucus is an outdated means of choosing a presidential candidate but it is not a reason to ridicule good and committed democrats.

However, this time there is a paper record of how each and every person voted last night and the results will tell us who one.

Have a nice day.

5. That is not the case.

 

The paper record recorded both rounds. Each precinct knows which candidates were viable on the first round. Those who chose candidates that were not viable had the opportunity to go with another candidate and if they had done so they would have written that candidate's name on side 2 of their caucus card.

Please don't spread misinformation.

6. I will redact my post, but I maintain that there is no way for an outsider to have any confidence

 

in the integrity of this process. At. All.
