Well…well…well I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, wherever there’s an election to be compromised Hillary Clinton isn’t far behind. The Iowa caucuses included. At the center of the controversy is a voting app created by none other than her former campaign manager Robby Mook, and many are concerned the party is once again rigging its primary against Bernie Sanders.
Hillary’s crony was quick to take to social media in an attempt to distance himself from the reported irregularities that forced state Democrats to withhold results due to inconsistencies in vote counting.
“Sorry, folks. I did NOT have anything to do with building the Iowa caucus app. I dont know anything about it, had no role in it, and dont own a company that makes mobile app. Please contact @iowademocrats with questions about it,” Mook reportedly stated in a panicked tweet rife with typos.
Despite his denials, numerous reports indicate that the Hillary flunky was waist-deep in the creation and implementation of the app that turned the party’s first caucus into a national embarrassment.
“(Iowa’s parties) and their app and web development vendors partnered last fall with Harvard’s Defending Digital Democracy Project to develop strategies and systems to protect results and deal with any misinformation that’s reported on caucus night,” the Des Moines Register reported.
“They worked with campaign experts Robby Mook and Matt Rhodes — as well as experts in cybersecurity, national security, technology and election administration — and simulated the different ways that things could go wrong on caucus night.”
The left-leaning New York Times had also covered Mook’s involvement, quoting him giving himself props for an app well done. “We ran them through the wringer and pushed them really hard,” Mook was reportedly quoted in the NY Times.
“Some were much better at managing technical issues, and some were better managing information operations and disinformation, misinformation and communicating with the public. So, I think they really learned from each other, and they created some best practices for each other.”
While it’s certainly commonplace for a Hillary associate to lie through their teeth (Benghazi…Steele dossier…Uranium One…her secret bathroom server), the catastrophic failure puts the legitimacy of the vote tally in question.
This Democrat debacle comes at a moment when Hillary was sowing the seeds of distrust among her own party members. She recently declared presidential hopeful Rep. Tulsi Gabbard a “Russian asset” and targeted Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders as a dividing force.
“Precinct level results are still being reported to the (Iowa Democratic Party) IDP. While our plan is to release results as soon as possible today, our ultimate goal is to ensure that the integrity and accuracy of the process continues to be upheld,” Democrat officials reportedly said.
All of these efforts tend to support the efforts of Washington-insider Sleazy Joe Biden. The app rolled out by Hillary’s former campaign manager reportedly suffered malfunctions in 86 percent of the precincts that Sleazy Joe Biden was expected to lose. Biden campaign officials promptly began a propaganda effort to dismiss the results as inaccurate, a position that may help buoy his faltering campaign.
“We have no sense when results might come in,” Biden advisor Anita Dunn reportedly said. “We are… very concerned with what they might release: The alignment numbers are not adding up.”
Interestingly, President Donald Trump won the Republican caucus handily on the same day with a record turnout and no vote-counting issues.
