FIGURES. App Created by Tech Firm Run by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Campaign Officials Linked to Iowa Caucus Train Wreck
The Democrat Iowa caucus was a total train wreck from the start.
Monday night it was reported that the secretive Iowa Democrat Party app stopped working hours before the caucuses.
It is now Tuesday afternoon and the Democrats still have no caucus results.
The Iowa Democrat Party Chairman blamed the delay on a “coding error.”
It gets worse…
The app used in Monday night’s Iowa caucus train wreck was created by a tech firm run by officials of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Los Angeles Times reported:
Results from Monday’s caucuses could not be transmitted to Iowa party headquarters, and state Democratic Party Chairman Troy Price blamed the problem on a coding error. “While our plan is to release results as soon as possible today, our ultimate goal is to ensure that the integrity and accuracy of the process continues to be upheld,” he said in a statement Tuesday morning.
Confusion among caucus organizers over how to use the app also seemed to contribute to the problem.
The firm behind the app reportedly is Shadow, an affiliate of ACRONYM, a Democratic nonprofit founded in 2017 “to educate, inspire, register, and mobilize voters,” according to its website. Shadow started out as Groundbase, a tech developer co-founded by Gerard Niemira and Krista Davis, who worked for the tech team on Clinton’s campaign for the 2016 Democratic nomination.
Vladimir Putin and Russian bots haven’t been blamed yet for the train wreck, but Democrat candidate Andrew Yang blamed President Trump for the delay.
