GOP Shenanigans! – Rick Santorum Wins Iowa NOT Mitt Romney!

Standard

Certified vote totals show Rick Santorum won GOP Iowa caucuses with 34 more votes than Mitt Romney! But hey who cares.. Mitt already got the momentum from the win…. and the question of the day is… Was THIS really a mistake or just plain old cheating dirty tricks….?  And if Iowa can’t count…, Why do they matter in this process?

CNN reports……..

Rick Santorum finished the Iowa Republican caucuses 34 votes ahead of Mitt Romney, but results from several precincts are missing and the full actual results may never be known, according to a final certified tally released Thursday by the Iowa GOP.

The new numbers show 29,839 votes for Santorum and 29,805 votes for Romney, according to the party.

The initial returns from Iowa gave Romney a razor-thin 8-vote margin of victory over Santorum, reinforcing the former Massachusetts governor‘s frontrunner status and giving him a major momentum boost heading into the New Hampshire primaries. Romney went on to win New Hampshire easily, allegedly making him the first non-incumbent Republican in modern history to win the first two contests of the cycle.

Now history is being rewritten, casting a shadow over the first-in-the-nation caucuses and potentially shaking up the GOP race two days before the critical South Carolina primary.
