Iowa Results Contested
There may be an upset in store for the Iowa caucus results after one volunteer said the final tally reported for his county was wrong by 20 votes.
Edward True of Moulton, Iowa, said he helped count the votes and wrote the results on a piece of paper to post to his Facebook page. When he later checked to make sure the Republican Party of Iowa got the count right, he said he was shocked to find it hadn’t, according to KCCI 8 in Des Moines.
“When Mitt Romney won Iowa by eight votes and I’ve got a 20-vote discrepancy here, that right there says Rick Santorum won Iowa,” True said. “Not Mitt Romney.”
True said Romney received only two votes from his 53-person caucus, but the State’s Republican Party website reported 22 votes for the candidate.
A spokeswoman with the Iowa Republican Party said True is not a precinct captain and not a county chairperson, so he is not authorized to talk about election results. The party will not discuss discrepancies until the caucus vote is certified.
True said he is positive that his numbers are accurate.
