    The head of the Iowa Democratic party filed his resignation Wednesday, as the organization is still picking up the pieces from last week’s caucus debacle.

    Troy Price had been head of the state party since 2017, but after his role in overseeing a process widely panned as disorganized and opaque, it became an open question whether he would stay on in his job.

    “While it is my desire to stay in this role and see this process through to completion, I do believe it is time for the Iowa Democratic Party to begin looking forward, and my presence in my current role makes that more difficult,” Price said, in a letter to the Iowa Democratic Party State Central Committee.

    Prior to being elected head of the state party in July 2017, Price worked on the presidential campaigns of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in Iowa.

    I feel much better since I gave up hope.

    At the very least,there should be an investigation into election fraud.  I don’t know if there are still sufficient laws for that, or if even variations of it are legal now.  We really need to get a progressive at the head of the DNC, someone who can recreate it into a force for decency and integrity.  I can’t imagine the rank and file are pleased with Perez, either.
