Sanders To Seek 'Partial Recanvass' Of Iowa Precincts - Yet IDP Says Bad Math Can't Be F

•, by Tyler Durden

According to totals released on Sunday, former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) would receive two more pledged delegates than Sanders, bringing their totals to 16 and 14 respectively.

The announcement comes shortly after the Iowa Democratic Party released updated totals for the state's caucuses held last week following days of uncertainty over the contest's winner.

Some journalists, including The Appeal's Daniel Nichanian, noted that even after Sunday's update some of the delegate calculations remained incorrect, including one case where a precinct allocated more state delegates than it had to allocate. -The Hill

That said, an attorney for the Iowa Democratic Party says that nothing will change.  According to a Saturday email from the IDP chair, "The incorrect math on the Caucus Math Worksheets must not be changed to ensure the integrity of the process. Most importantly the Worksheet is the caucus chair and secretary's "certification" of the results as required by Iowa Code 43.4(2-3). It is the legal voting record of the caucus, like a ballot."
