Calling Hans Von Spakovsky! Calling Hans Von Spakovsky! Apparently the Mittens campaign and the Iowa GOP must be using the counting methods that the GOP so abhors in vote tallying to have, to put it kindly, miscounted in Iowa.
Seems that Santorum might have won the Iowa Caucus if what is alleged in the little town of Moulton, Iowa is true.
Edward True, 28, of Moulton, said he helped count the votes and jotted the results down on a piece of paper to post to his Facebook page. He said when he checked to make sure the Republican Party of Iowa got the count right, he said he was shocked to find they hadn't.Hmmm, gotta love that, he's not an election "official", just a citizen so he has no business discussing the voting. Wow. The authoritarians come out at night, I guess. Maybe it's that he's a Ron Paul supporter to boot that's making the Iowa GoOPers so upset with him telling the truth about what he saw.
"When Mitt Romney won Iowa by eight votes and I've got a 20-vote discrepancy here, that right there says Rick Santorum won Iowa," True said. "Not Mitt Romney."
True said at his 53-person caucus at the Garrett Memorial Library, Romney received two votes. According to the Iowa Republican Party's website, True's precinct cast 22 votes for Romney.
"This is huge," True said. "It essentially changes who won."
A spokeswoman with the Iowa Republican Party said True is not a precinct captain and he's not a county chairperson so he has no business talking about election results. She also said the party would not be giving interviews about possible discrepancies until the caucus vote is certified.
Reached a short time later, True said he is absolutely certain his numbers are correct and he stands by his statement. True said he confirmed his numbers with his precinct captain and his county party chairman.I guess when you're in charge of the machine that lies, it just gets easier to lie, cheat and steal than to be honest especially when your guy is down in the polls.
We'll have to see how they handle this, but Santorum winning and obvious vote rigging sure make the Iowa GOP look pretty bad. I guess maybe there is fraud in voting, and it's run by the republican party when they don't like the results. After all, "selection" is much easier than "election" isn't it?
