Last night, the country was stunned when Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders came out virtually tied in what is being called the closest Iowa caucus ever. In the end, Hillary barely squeaked out a victory with 49.9% of the vote compared to Sanders’ 49.5%, but now a voting fraud scandal has come to light that could take away this win from Hillary very soon.

According to IJ Review, Hillary only won in Iowa because a coin-toss gave her one delegate’s vote, and a fracas caused more delegates for her in precinct #43 in Polk County. An anonymous user sent the below video to CSPAN along with the headline, “Caucus chair and Clinton precinct captain do not conduct actual count of Clinton supporters and deliberately mislead caucus.”

After the final count, three Sanders supporters approached the authorities to dispute the tally. Reddit user cosmicjesus3 explained the accusation:

So basically in the caucus they have to hand count everyone depending on what side they’re sitting on. Well when it came time to do the second count the numbers were off. The first vote breakdown was like this

FIRST VOTE: 215 Sanders 210 Clinton 26 O’Malley 8 Undecided 459 TOTAL

And this is the SECOND Vote: 232 Clinton 224 Sanders 456 Total

So somehow they lost 3 people but Clinton’s vote went up by 14.

So basically what had happened was Hillary’s team didn’t take the time to do a full recount instead she just added the new people who joined the second vote. Which clearly wasn’t an accurate count.

Watch the video below and see what you think, then let us know in the comments section.
