DNC Chair orders a recount in Iowa

Tom Perez (right) was endorsed by Joe Biden for the role of DNC Chair in Feb 2017 after the debacle that ended up being the 2016 election under Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Perez won, beating out pro-Sanders Keith Ellison.

As we know, Bernie Sanders is neck and neck with Pete Buttigieg in the Iowa Caucus. However, Perez tweeted overnight,

Enough is enough. In light of the problems that have emerged in the implementation of the delegate selection plan and in order to assure public confidence in the results, I am calling on the Iowa Democratic Party to immediately begin a recanvass.

The NY Times commented that,

In some cases, vote tallies do not add up. In others, precincts are shown allotting the wrong number of delegates to certain candidates. And in at least a few cases, the Iowa Democratic Party’s reported results do not match those reported by the precincts.

Hopefully, any recount will result in the one that is palatable to the DNC.
