Today’s editorial cartoon is brought to you by the lovely American practice in some states known as a Caucus. The one in Iowa has social media spreading a new hashtag – COINGATE.
In several districts in Iowa to break the virtual tie between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in the Democratic Primary, officials ended up flipping a coin to determine that districts winner. Out of seven districts that came down to the coin toss, Clinton won six of them. Oddsmakers are skeptical.
NPR claims that a fact check of the situation says that the story isn’t entirely true as the conspiracy theorists.
What a stupid way to determine a winner of an election or even who gets that odd numbered delegate. Then again we are the country that brought you hanging chads in the 2000 Presidential Election.
