(Liberty Bell) – On Monday night, as the proverbial starting pistol for the presidential primary season finally fired in the form of the Iowa caucuses, the candidates burst out of the gate and tripped and fell all over themselves.
Then they all declared they were the winner.
This is to say, an app which the DNC debuted for the closely-watched caucuses caused serious malfunctions, meaning that instead of knowing who won the state on Tuesday morning, all we know now is that the Democrats are more incompetent than ever.
On Tuesday, Breitbart reported:
The Iowa Democratic presidential caucuses are being called a disaster, a nightmare, and an epic fail. In the subsequent round of finger-pointing, a consensus scapegoat has emerged — a mobile app paid for by the Iowa Democratic Party that was supposed to collect and report the results of Monday night’s vote.
The app was reportedly developed in secret by a for-profit technology firm with the too-good-to-be-true name of Shadow, Inc. While little was previously known about the app, new revelations are quickly emerging, including the firm’s ties to Hillary Clinton.
Iowa Democratic officials are denying that the app is to blame for the chaotic outcome of Monday’s caucuses. The results of the Democratic caucuses are likely to be delayed significantly, which has sent party leaders into damage control mode.
As the caucus debacle continues to unravel, several key players have emerged in the blame game that has swept up key members of the Democratic party establishment.
According to Eoin Higgins from Common Dreams, the secretive app stopped working hours before the caucuses.
As many of the candidates started acting like they’d actually won the caucus, which officially absolutely no one has yet as it is currently impossible to determine any of the results, Andrew Yang blamed….Trump.
-Iowa Democratic Party uses secretive app for caucus reporting
-App stops working a few hours before caucus begins
-Results trickle in but show dominating performance for Sanders, death knell for Biden camp
-Counting now shut down by DNC for "quality control"
I have that right?

Yang, of all people, should know that the crooked and incompetent Democrat establishment is behind this farce.
Never one to turn down a chance to point out the DNC’s failings, he missed a huge opportunity to do so here.
As Breitbart explains:
Shadow, Inc. is the Democratic firm that reportedly built the app, according to the Huffington Post. The firm says on its official site that its mission is “to build political power for the progressive movement by developing affordable and easy-to-use tools.”
The company was launched in 2019 by ACRONYM, a Democratic non-profit group whose affiliated political action committee has supported progressive candidates across the country.
