DES MOINES, Iowa -- Caucus night was chaotic in many places, with hundreds of voters, candidates showing up and the throngs of media who followed. The world's eyes were on Iowa. But in the quiet town of Moulton, Appanoose County, a caucus of 53 people may just blow up the results.

Edward True, 28, of Moulton, said he helped count the votes and jotted the results down on a piece of paper to post to his Facebook page. He said when he checked to make sure the Republican Party of Iowa got the count right, he said he was shocked to find they hadn't.

"When Mitt Romney won Iowa by eight votes and I've got a 20-vote discrepancy here, that right there says Rick Santorum won Iowa," True said. "Not Mitt Romney."

True said at his 53-person caucus at the Garrett Memorial Library, Romney received two votes. According to the Iowa Republican Party's website, True's precinct cast 22 votes for Romney.

"This is huge," True said. "It essentially changes who won."

A spokeswoman with the Iowa Republican Party said True is not a precinct captain and he's not a county chairperson so he has no business talking about election results. She also said the party would not be giving interviews about possible discrepancies until the caucus vote is certified.

KCCI political analyst Dennis Goldford said even if the caucus results are wrong, it's not the end of the world.

This will make Iowa look a little foolish in the eyes of the rest of the country, which already questions the seriousness of the caucuses," Goldford said. But in terms of Santorum's results here, the Caucuses have made him a player in presidential politics and if he should nudge ahead of Gov. Romney for the final certified result that's really not going to make any significant difference at this point."

True -- who said he's a Ron Paul supporter -- hopes it was a simple mistake.

"I imagine it's a good possibility that somebody instead of hitting 2 might have hit 22 by accident," True said. "I hope so."

But he said he won't stop talking about it until the state -- by his count -- gets the numbers right.

"Numbers that I personally witnessed being counted and assisted in counting and am certain are right," he said.

Iowa Republican Party Chairman Matt Strawn said late Thursday that the party headquarters spoke with Appanoose County Republican officials and they do not have any reason to believe the final, certified results of the county will change the outcome of Tuesday's vote.

Reached a short time later, True said he is absolutely certain his numbers are correct and he stands by his statement. True said he confirmed his numbers with his precinct captain and his county party chairman.

KCCI left a message for the Appanoose Republican party chairman on Thursday afternoon. The call has yet to be returned.

True reiterated Thursday night that he is 100-percent certain that his figures from that night were correct. He said he has checked with his precinct chairman and the GOP county chairman and they confirmed his numbers.

On Fox News’ On The Record tonight, <u>Santorum said that he spoke with the head of the Iowa Republican Party</u>, who told him that there was<u> a separate counting error</u> that incorrectly stripped 21 votes from Romney. Therefore, <u>the two counting errors</u>, according to Santorum, have largely offset themselves, although the final certification is yet to be completed. </div></div>

Santorum is such a moron he obviously didn't ask, "WHAT other error?"

Sounds like BS to me.

LMAO. Boy, you are SO partisan paranoid.

Let's get this straight.

In a vote [ a Republican primary no less ] ,that the Democrats have nothing to do with, who have absolutely no control over any of the counting processes, an obvious fraud occurs and THEY are the culprits!?

LOL.

Can't wait to hear this one Sherlock.

Q..my bet is that the reply will be another drive-by one liner.

I would think the Dems would love to have anyone but Romney, and especially, the former PA senator who was spanked out of his last run for the Senate by something on the order of 18% points.

In reality, Romney DID lose this, even on the stated numbers, by barely beating the guy who spent the least money, who was always on the lowest tier (maybe ahead of Hunstman and Gary Johnson), and only by spending the MOST money? This is actually a stunning rebuke of Romney by the voters.

In fact, it is the right wing media (well, all the media, but also the right wing media) that refuses to call this as a defeat for Willard, when it is. Or if they have done that, I haven't seen it, and would welcome a link.

So sure the fix is in for Willard, which is why until now, the rest of the field refused to really attack him, and instead, attacked each other. I guess they've all been told that since Willard WILL. BE. THE. NOMINEE., not to provide attack sound bites to the Democrats down the road. Either that, or they all in their minds conceded the race to Willard, and were angling for that VP spot.

But here's a question: if Santorum was robbed and or inadvertently by pure chance deprived of a victory instead of a moral victory near-tie second place finish, should he, and will he, get the correct numbers reflected by a recount?

He has told so many outright lies about the results of his business management, and particularly the results for workers, and the crooked way he has operated, I can't wait for the real facts to be spread out there! Almost makes me want to send a few bucks to The Newt.
