Exactly. It's a know malfeasance on the level of Harvey Weinstein.

I watched a few minutes of the coverage of it last night. A very antiquated process.

Well it looks like Trump sinking Biden worked. Create doubt.

Removing the most status quo candidate seems like a great way to possibly end up with a socialist president. But whatever.

He is correct. At some point reason has to overtake tradition.

Clinton campaign folks trying to enable other Democrats to run better campaigns? Jesus. That's like being a serious golfer and having Helen Keller as your swing coach.

A delegate tie between Sanders and Buttigieg was decided by a coin flip
From CNN's Paul P. Murphy

The official results may not be ready just yet. But at one precinct in Des Moines, Iowa, an apparent delegate tie between Sen. Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg was decided by a coin flip.

Jaylen Cavil said he took this video of the coin flip at precinct 80:

Meh. While I have no doubts the DNC has their favorite candidate(s), I find it completely plausible that there were issues with a relatively untested phone-based app for reporting caucus results.

Add in the fact that most polling volunteers I've ever seen probably aren't the most tech-savvy demographic out there...

Allegedly they have a paper trail audit system, so we shall see.

Agreed. I watched it last night on MSNBC and it appears from their coverage BS had the largest turnout.

We have an old joke here in Minnesota.

Q: "Why does the Mississippi flow out of Minnesota and into Iowa?"
A: "Because Iowa sucks."
