If our side is supposedly nothing but knuckle-dragging troglodytes, why was THEIR side’s election so damned screwed up? We, now know who to blame.

Surprise, surprise, the DNC itself is to blame.

With that party’s stellar history in working with tech — Hillary, Weissman, Weiner, Wasserman-Schultz — should this really surprise anybody?

The chaos of that night centered around an app, if you recall.

The Iowa Democratic Party commissioned the audit shortly after the Feb. 3 caucuses, hiring a pair of Democratic lawyers to examine the technical and procedural failures that prevented it from announcing a caucus winner for days after the high-profile contest ended.

…Shadow Inc. designed the app for the Iowa Democratic Party, beginning its work in August. But the company’s CEO, Gerard Niemira, told Motherboard, an online tech publication, that “we didn’t have a final production version of this until pretty close to caucus time.”

The audit focused on a “database conversion tool” created at the last minute at the behest of the Democratic National Committee.

“Attempting to graft an entirely new software element onto the back-end reporting system at the proverbial eleventh hour is likely always going to be problematic, and it was ultimately the cause of a major problem on caucus night,” the report said.

On caucus night, the report says the DNC demanded access to the state party’s reporting data in real-time. It wanted access so that it could calculate the results to confirm the state’s numbers before anything would be released to the public.

“When the DNC’s database conversion tool failed to work correctly, it caused the DNC to wrongly stop the IDP from reporting its results, and the IDP’s entire planned reporting process was thrown into disarray,” the report said. “The DNC’s interjection was the catalyst for the resulting chaos in the boiler room and the IDP’s attempts to manually collect and confirm caucus results by hand.” –DetroitFreePress

The DNC wanted to micromanage the vote.

They also wanted to … confirm the numbers before they were released?

Interesting. Considering how things played out in 2016, where the results of a Hillary ‘win’ were known long before the first Democrat ever voted on the question… that’s not suspicious at all.

There were other issues as well, but not as central to the main issues at hand.

The review spotlighted a number of other issues, including:

The IDP began development of the reporting app too late
App users received no training on its installation or usage
The app was not hacked or compromised by outside actors
The Iowa Democratic Party failed to manage media expectations, telling reporters that results would reported in real-time –DetroitFreePress
