"App blamed for botched Iowa caucus created by Hillary Clinton campaign alum"

The app blamed for Iowa’s stalled Democratic caucus results was slapped together by an alum of Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 presidential campaign.

Gerard Niemira, CEO of Shadow Inc. — the company tapped by the Iowa Democratic Party to build an app for reporting the results of the crucial, first-in-the-nation caucus — served as Director of Product on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.

As of early Tuesday, the IDP has still not released the results of the chaotic caucus.

Shadow’s role in building the app was not publicly known before the failed rollout.

Precinct chairs across the state experienced problems downloading or logging into the app, one of the ways they were supposed to be able to send the results from their smaller, individual caucuses to the IDP, Bloomberg News reported.

“The changes that were made to the caucus this year were in response to criticism from [Sen. Bernie] Sanders’ campaign in 2016,” Dr. Karen Kedrowski, Director of the Catt Center for Women and Politics at Iowa State University and an expert on caucus history, told The Post of the app’s commissioning and rollout.

The app, Kedrowski contends, was supposed to be one of multiple fixes made to the caucus process after the Sanders campaign challenged certain procedures from 2016 as unfair.

“You could log in, the app would be secure, and you could report your results without having to wait on the phone to submit,” she said of what the app would’ve promised to do.

Kedrowski added that along with the app’s failed rollout, “sheer incompetence [from the state] added to the mess.”

Maybe this is why there is so much confusion. Petey thinks B is for Buttigieg, Sanders thinks it’s for Bernie, Steyer thinks it’s for Billionaire, Warren thinks it’s for ‘Beth...

Hmm.....
They will start telling us how they had been Republican all those years and because of Trump they are not anymore.

Soon they will start telling us they are not backing Dems

Dems are actually destroying themselves sooner than I thought, but I am enjoying the show so not complaining

I watched a few minutes of the coverage of it last night. A very antiquated process.

Well it looks like Trump sinking Biden worked. Create doubt.

Removing the most status quo candidate seems like a great way to possibly end up with a socialist president. But whatever.
as i mentioned early on in the biden/impeachment thread, the timing of the whistleblower coming forward to say trump wanted ukraine to investigate Biden was nearly perfectly timed with the early dem debates and early polling. No one was talking about Biden corruption until then, and that pushed it right to the front of main stream news while biden was the front runner for the nomination.

Its not a coincidence. The DNC doesnt want Biden, and didnt want a scandal of trying to force biden out of the race out in the public. this caucus will show us who they actually wanted.

I have to think Biden is the anointed one. The big money donors and the corporations have too much money invested in Biden to let him fail. He's still the odds-on favorite. I'd say it's his to lose. Which he...sniff, sniff...easily could.

A good old fashioned Democrat cluster fuck, it’s their default setting. If they’re not cheating each other and Republicans they're screwing things up. Funny as all get out.

Crazy, cough corrupt, stuff going on. Biden threatens injunction on Iowa results fearing fiddling.

And the sotu is tonight.

It's hard to try and figure who inside the dem circus is corrupt. Is Joe in on it? Are Joe and Bernie getting the dry one? Is Hillary behind the curtain again? Is Perez really Hillary? Pepperoni or Italian sausage?

Good golly Miss Molly

LOL. I feel that. Though compared to most here I am a Democrat or at least what they used to be.

Pete is the best option given the field. Crazy Bernie supporters call me a Republican for seeing Pete as the path forward.

But I don't really care about the label as much as the path forward.

Do these sketchy, to say it lightly, shenanigans concern you at all?

Other than yourself, it's a blue free zone in this thread. I mean silence.

It would have me in a bit of a tiz if the rnc was performing like this. I'm not 100% sure hank n pank are active but DAMN.

If the gaffe had been on the Republican side, this thread would be 20 pages long already.

Democrats can't run anything. Even something this simple and small scale. I haven't been following the story in the day's new reports, but I wouldn't be shocked to see them at some point blame racism, sexism, Iow-ism, homophobia, or chicken pox. A scapegoat must be found; they'll never take responsibility for their incompetence and fuckery.

I don't know what is going on yet. The reporting has been all over the place. Rather than jump to conclusions I will wait.

I am more annoyed that the process is what it is. But soon we will move on to states that run actual primaries and not this shit show.

I think ranked choice is the best option for a primary. Anything short of that is disappointing. The year is 2020, time we act like it.

A phone app? Really? What the F man.
