Santorum won the Iowa caucuses, NOT Romney

Rate this post


The morning after the January 3 Iowa caucuses, we were told that Mitt Romney had won by a razor-thin margin of 8 votes.
Days later, Iowan vote-counter Edward True swore in an affidavit that the GOP count was wrong and that he personally knew of a 20-vote discrepancy. Mitt wasn’t the winner; Rick Santorum was.
It turns out what True claims is true.
On Thursday, the GOP reveals a new vote count that the party then posted on its website late yesterday (Friday). The Republican Party of Iowa now says that Santorum is the winner of the Iowa caucuses, beating Mitt Romney by 34 votes (29,839 v. 29,805).
A statement from the Iowa GOP reads:
“In order to clarify conflicting reports and to affirm the results released January 18 by the Republican Party of Iowa, Chairman Matthew Strawn and the State Central Committee declared Senator Rick Santorum the winner of the 2012 Iowa Caucus.”
No explanation is given for why Romney had been declared the winner.

  1. Steve, Steve, Steve…. How many times have I asked you not to prank people w/such a straight face? Now I hear that “It turns out what True claims is true,” because she got that from you.
    Now I ask you, honestly, “How much of this is true, and not just something about True that you made up?”
    As I wrote above, I’ve asked you a million times not to exaggerate, and here you are again!

     
  2. Iowa may have gotten criticism about their release earlier. Romney WON when he was ahead by 8 but Santorum and Romney tied when Santorum was ahead by 34. I am sure those statements were questioned by many. I also think that they are receiving alot of questioning about the missing eight districts. How they can miscount when they are talking under a hundred votes in some areas is beyond me. I think we need to institute an ink pad stamping system and voter ID laws to get a little closer to a true and fair election.

     
  3. I hope this makes Iowa irrelevant, and they lose the right to go first, I nominate Louisiana to go first… 😉

     
  4. I can think of an explanation: The media is always in a perpetual stream of predicting political results, were in a hurry to declare a winner for this race, and there were enough people in the caucus process who wanted to aid and abet them. Never mind taking the time to check for the possibility errors or any outright fraud–they wanted a Name they could run with.

     
  5. I’m with Sage… Santorum is appearing better all the time…(we shall see).. I am praying for guidance in deciding. Seeing those I had in mind fall like dominoes isn’t helping my usually calm nature either…lol… Well, I won’t get violent or midieval on anyone…at least not yet… 😉 But my hope and faith is in Jesus Christ as well!

     
  6. I am praying whether I should even vote at all. Voting for the “lesser” of two evils is still voting for evil in my book. I see what the Holy Spirit leads me to do!

     
  7. “No explanation is given for why Romney had been declared the winner.”
    Demo-rat and/or state elections apparatchiks’ wishfull thinking… a RINO again like last time, yay!

     
  8. Something smells.

  9. All of these men have certain qualities that have kept the msm buzzing and have gotten people to vote in these primaries, because as a whole we citizens want things to be “normal” and this whole election thing is riddled with questions already of fraud and too much superpac money floating around. Pastor Wiley Drake of Buena Park is running for President representing the Independent Party and he’s most definitely a Christian, and he loves the Lord. Where is the church on this one? He’s a Southern Baptist, and actively engaged in ministry at present.
