A top Iowa newspaper is calling for a ‘complete audit’ of Hillary Clinton’s narrow win over Bernie Sanders in the state’s caucus.

The Des Moines Register called for state officials to examine Clinton’s victory, according to Raw Story.

The editorial staff wrote, “Too many questions have been raised. 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.”

Raw Story reported:

A full recount isn’t possible, because Democratic caucus voters choose seats around a room to signal their support for candidates, and they are then counted by precinct captains.

Ties can be settled by coin flips.

The newspaper, which endorsed Clinton, said the Democratic Party had validated “wild” suspicions by Sanders supporters about possible improprieties by refusing to turn over math sheets or other paperwork filled out by precinct chairs and then turned over to the state’s party.

The editorial board continued, “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.”

It would be a huge blow to Hillary if they did audit her “victory.”

SHARE if you would never vote for Hillary!
