The Iowa Democratic Party has refused to release results of the caucuses held throughout the state on Monday night to determine the allocation of delegates for the party’s presidential nomination. Officials are now saying that they hope to have results “some time Tuesday.”
The action is an unprecedented intervention by the party apparatus into the process of choosing the party’s presidential nominee. It is clearly directed at the campaign of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who was leading in the polls and was expected to place first in a four- or five-way contest in Iowa.
The media and non-Sanders Democratic Party candidates quickly developed a common line, citing supposed “quality control” issues in the vote that questioned its “legitimacy.” The New York Times, which earlier posted polling results that clearly showed Sanders in the lead, removed all such figures from its front page by midnight.
An official statement from the Iowa Democratic Party claimed that there were “inconsistencies in the reporting of three sets of results” from each of the more than 1,700 precinct caucuses held across the state. The party statement did not explain the nature of the discrepancies or how they were to be remedied, except to claim that the issue was not the result of a hack or other external interference with the tabulation of the vote.

I suspect that it is really a “Quality Cover Up” and not a quality review.

nope, groper JOE will spin it as a rigged caucus and trod clumsily on
His neo-rubes will buy it as they are like Trumpers insomuch as they buy anything Groper says
if he loses South Carolina, with its uber-stacked old black bigot bible-thumping population, then he will be cooked
those cunts for hire at SV
many of whom play fake blacks and fake women on that shithole
would never let those old black thumpers into their wine and cheese neolibcon parties, but they use them like a cheap rag to force feed conservadems down the collective Dummicrat throat, as Corrupt Hateful Assholes abound
Twitter is simply overrun with fake blacks shilling for Biden, even more than SV

Just logged on. Only saw the Youtube News headlines so far this morning. Looked bad, looked business as usual.
If Bernie is not the candidate, I would not vote blue if Trump decided to take a crap on the White House lawn every morning. Actually, that would be more honest than the DNC and the Democratic Party and the previous Democratic presidents and Congress. And now it looks like the DNC is taking another crap on Bernie and his supporters.
DNC apologists and ‘splainers and those who get all apoplectic about the GOP – kiss my ass. The Democratic Party is now, like someone brilliant said yesterday here at JPR, the GOP without family values. They fucking KNEW everyone was watching.
I will not vote for a Vichy Dem. Period. As always, I decide who is a Vichy Dem.
Bernie's ISSUES or Bust!

It looks like the Democratic Party is captured by unseen forces and they want us to know that they will never let a true populist win.
Who would hire a company named Shadow to build a mobile app?
It’s an obvious front company.

Biden will be getting lots of face time in front of the cameras today, explaining his reasoning. This could be fun.
