As Iowa prepares for its caucuses, the first presidential votes of the 2020 election, it is worth harkening back to the 2016 campaign.
Below are some of the allegations related to Iowa and the 2016 election.
That is when there were allegations that the Hilly Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee (DNC) put their finger on the scale to cheat Bernie Sanders out of the nomination.
The Clinton campaign and Democrat party denied they did anything improper and said that the nomination of Clinton was fair and square.
The excerpts below are from political columnist Ted Rall July 8, 2016:
The following is from an article in The Guardian in 2016:
Iowa's caucuses begin Monday evening.
My personal prediction? Bernie will be the prime contender going into the convention. TPTB will kneecap him, and "for the good of the party" will turn to Her Heinous the Crone of Chappaqua.
David Keener says
I worry what they will do to Sanders what they did to Andrew Breitbart and Antonin Scalia. He has already had a heart attack.
Joel Walbert says
Is it truly being cheated if it is pretty much known that the DNC's (and RNC's, Ron Paul anyone???) rules are they can changes the rules at will??? More seriously though, if I am not mistaken, I think the DNC does have a rule or guideline or whatever that the Democrat primary is only a 'suggestion' and that by committee rule they are not obligated to nominate the primary winner for general election. Or that's my understanding at least and anyone is more than welcome to correct me if that is off base
Mark Bowker says
He is in line to get cheated on more than Hilliary did.
