article imageDid Romney actually win the Iowa caucus?

By Gar Swaffar     Jan 6, 2012 in Politics
The Iowa caucus is over and Mitt Romney appears to have been the winner by a meager eight votes, but one caucus worker disputes the results.
Edward True was a precinct worker on Tuesday and he disputes the results of the Appanoose County caucus he worked at. In the KCCI video posted at Breitbart, two issues appear to be at the heart of the disagreement.
One issue is the number of votes for Romney which True jotted down on a piece of paper so he could post the results to his Facebook page. True was counting votes and on his paper were two votes for Romney, while the official, but as yet uncertified, Republican Party of Iowa (RPI) results appear to show twenty two votes for Romney.

The Republican Party of Iowa offered a statement through an unidentified spokeswoman, with the information that Edward True is neither a precinct captain nor is he a a county chair, and has no business discussing election results. That could indicate the RPI may not be willing to change the outcome of the Iowa caucus from the Garrett Memorial Library caucus.
True also was quoted in the KCCI video as saying that the RPI reported a total of seventy-nine attendees at Garrett Memorial Library, while only fifty-three were actually in attendance. The twenty vote discrepancy would account for all but six of the extra attendees.
One analyst for KCCI, Dennis Goldford, suggests that even a wrong result may not "be the end of the world" and any difference in the results won't alter Rick Santorum's performance outcome.
Edward True is reportedly a Ron Paul supporter.
