You thought the Democratic Iowa caucus was a cluster before? Well, you’ll be pleased to know that it’s about to get worse.
DNC Chair Tom Perez is calling for an immediate recanvass:
Enough is enough. In light of the problems that have emerged in the implementation of the delegate selection plan and in order to assure public confidence in the results, I am calling on the Iowa Democratic Party to immediately begin a recanvass.

If there’s one thing the DNC will not abide, it’s incompetence.

We’re guessing God doesn’t want any part of this. He’d rather just sit back and laugh like the rest of us.
Don't you normally finish the initial count before you recanvass? https://t.co/ldIzfEhwtp

I was under the impression that the initial canvass hadn't even finished yet https://t.co/zsKseFNoZe

Well, it doesn’t matter. Because we’re gonna do it again!

It really is impressive. We’re kind of in awe, actually.

Hope Team Bernie’s ready … Round 2’s shaping up to be a doozy!

Apparently when Bernie Sanders wins in Iowa, as he did in 2016 and again in 2020, the D.N.C. apparently stands for “Do Not Count.” https://t.co/OuV1svCT3a

It’s OK. At least this time, it should work. Because the Iowa Democratic Party is reportedly totally on board with Perez’s demand:
NEW: The Iowa Democratic Party did not have advance warning that @TomPerez was calling for a recanvass of the Iowa caucus results, two people familiar with the matter tell @CNN. Perez doesn't point out that the DNC has been running the show in Iowa for the last 48 hours.

We seriously can’t get enough of this.
