Leading Iowa Newspaper Says Something Stinks in Hawkeye State
Even a liberal newspaper like the Des Moines Register can't stand the stench any longer:
In a strongly worded editorial on Thursday, The Des Moines Register called on the Iowa Democratic Party to move quickly to prove that Monday's results are correct. The piece titled “Editorial: Something smells in the Democratic Party,” starts out: “Once again the world is laughing at Iowa.”
It gets sharper from there. “What happened Monday night at the Democratic caucuses was a debacle, period. Democracy, particularly at the local party level, can be slow, messy and obscure. But the refusal to undergo scrutiny or allow for an appeal reeks of autocracy,” the DMR reads. “The Iowa Democratic Party must act quickly to assure the accuracy of the caucus results, beyond a shadow of a doubt.”
The editorial cites Clinton’s razor-thin victory as too close “not to do a complete audit of results.”
If the journalistic establishment, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of David Axelrod, Inc., now feels safe in attacking the Dowager Empress of Chappaqua, the signs for Herself are not good.
The newspaper editorial also said there were too many opportunities for error to arise. “Too many accounts have arisen of inconsistent counts, untrained and overwhelmed volunteers, confused voters, cramped precinct locations, a lack of voter registration forms and other problems,” the editorial reads. “Too many of us, including members of the Register editorial board who were observing caucuses, saw opportunities for error amid Monday night’s chaos.”
The editorial ends by calling on the state's Democratic Party to “work with all the campaigns to audit results. Break silly party tradition and release the raw vote totals. Provide a list of each precinct coin flip and its outcome, as well as other information sought by the Register. Be transparent.”
Hillary? Transparent? Surely you jest. Like cockroaches, the Clinton prefer to work in the dark, undermining the foundations of the country, while demanding that we trust them.
