Iowa Caucus Vote Counter Says Santorum Won, Claims Typo Gave Romney 20 Extra Votes

This is really going to make some Republicans crazy….

I love it!

This means their ridiculous Primary battle goes on and on with each day highlighting how crazy and opportunistic all their candidates are…

This further weakens Romney and everyone knows Santorum in unelectable.

This just shows what a total out-of-touch mess the GOP has become….

Well, at least based on Iowa.

But then, who cares about Iowa?

From Thinkprogress.org:

An Iowa GOP caucus voter who helped count the votes at his small caucus meeting in Moulton, Iowa claims that former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) accidentally received 20 extra votes than he earned — a claim which, if true, would change the winner of the unusually close caucus to former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA):

Edward True, 28, of Moulton, said he helped count the votes and jotted the results down on a piece of paper to post to his Facebook page. He said when he checked to make sure the Republican Party of Iowa got the count right, he said he was shocked to find they hadn’t.

“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 at his 53-person caucus at the Garrett Memorial Library, Romney received two votes. According to the Iowa Republican Party’s website, True’s precinct cast 22 votes for Romney.
