Sanders Campaign Wants Partial Recanvass of Some Iowa Precincts
Iowa Democratic Party said it would conduct a recanvass if a candidate asked for it.
2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) will not go quietly.
His campaign wants the Iowa Democratic Party (IDP) to recanvass 25 precincts and three satellite caucuses.
The Sanders campaign asked IDP Chair Tom Price to recanvass these places due to the caucus fiasco:
Mathematical errors and inconsistencies in the tabulations for 25 precincts and three satellite caucuses led to at least 3.2312 too many state delegate equivalents (SDEs) to be assigned to Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and at least 2.3942 too few to my campaign.
These errors and inconsistencies are ripe for review because their correction would change the national delegate allocation by moving, at a minimum, one PLEO delegate from Mayor Buttigieg to my campaign.
Sanders claimed he would end up 563.922 SDEs while Buttigieg would land with 561.071 SDEs.

On Thursday, the IDP declared former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg the winner with 26.2% of the delegates. Sanders came in second with 26% of the delegates.
The problems with the caucus on Monday happened almost right away. The app the IDP used crapped out, which caused irregularities. Price claimed they had a paper trail and everything online was secure. However, it took them four days to declare a winner.
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez demanded IDP perform a complete recanvass of the precincts. The IDP said they would only do it if one of the candidates requested it.
The IDP released its final numbers on Sunday. Buttigieg got 14 delegates and Sanders got 12.

Yes, that is what the DNC said several days ago….
but you know….. DNC……
Bet Bernie wants an “Oscar” too…….
I”m always impressed the left can cherry-pick what get recounted than scream when the number are still not in their favor.
It helps to remember dishonesty and deceit for them began with selecting their name: The last thing in the world Democrats are is democratic. Stalin pioneered the way for them way back when: “It’s not the people who vote that count, it’s the people who count the votes.” They all know that’s how they play the game, but it still hurts when your the one who got your victory stolen from you.
This guy doesn’t want to be president. What he really wants is the payoff from the dnc so he has to put on a show.
The only unknown is how many Million$ of Dollar$ Bernie is holding out for this time…….
Why is this so hard?!!!
There are, like, 1,672 precincts and there were only 170,000 votes. That’s about 100 ballots per precinct. You eliminate the dead people and it’s probably a little less. NOT BIG NUMBERS!!! Were the ballots cast in Russian? Did they spell Mayor Lieutenant Pete’s name wrong? Were there write in votes for Bill the Cat that outnumber Creepy Joe’s vote total?
This is the party that thinks they can run our economy. God help us.
IT’S ONLY 2ND GRADE MATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wondering when “Fake Injun for Real Wampum” Lizzie will call Bernie and Mayor South Bend, IN dogs…….
Elizabeth Warren Compares Mike Pence To A Dog…
How was the LA meet up?
This dude does a pretty good job of breaking down the math. Its interesting. Good channel too.
Oh Dear Lord, here we go with the endless “recounts” and “recanvasses” until the end of eternity. Just say no. Please God, just say no to any and all of these idiotic requests. You lost Sanders, and nothing is going to change that fact.
And if the IDP goes through with this and gets a different result then the whole Iowa Caucuses should be deemed invalid and discarded. With no do overs. If you can’t do it right the first time you don’t get a second chance. And that the truth.
Chill, it’s Demon-craps man…..
“Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez demanded IDP perform a complete recanvass of the precincts. The IDP said they would only do it if one of the candidates requested it.*”
*Candidate must have D next to name.
Sanders ought to use the Al Franken system of counting votes. Make them count and count and recount and recount until they get the number of votes they need to win then demand they stop the recounts.
Overlooked is the fact that Bernie is not a democrat; he’s an independent who caucuses with the dems. Why the dems even let him into the primary is a good question. What did they get from it?
Bernie gains a lot from the association. Caucusing with the dems despite his independent status has always been a fig leaf for his communist leanings. The real story is that he fits so well into the modern dem party. Their fig leaf and his are slipping.
Trump’s presidency has removed a lot of fig leaves (R & D) and exposed the nastiness underneath.
What the Dems get is no third party candidate. They have to absorb Bernie or the Dem vote will be split.
Back from his long “vacation” in Twitter, James Woods had this to say about Iowa…
“The #Democrats have cheated elections for so long, they can’t even elect themselves…”
Bernie will be fine.. He’ll get another vacation house and hopefully retire to a rocking chair on the front porch. Every community needs an angry old man to yell at the neighborhood kids to keep off the grass.
