The tech firm that designed the app used by the Iowa Democratic Party to report the results of its caucus is run by veterans of the Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential campaign.
The Huffington Post reported the app was designed by Shadow, Inc., which was founded by Gerard Niemira and Krista Davis. Both Niemira and Davis worked on the Clinton campaign, Niemira as director of product and Davis as a software engineer, according to their LinkedIn profiles. Shadow’s own product manager, Ahna Rao, also worked on the Clinton campaign as special assistant to the campaign’s chief technology officer.
Shadow is an affiliate of Acronym, a Democratic non-profit. Acronym’s website states it is an “organization committed to building power and digital infrastructure for the progressive movement.”
The Iowa Democratic Party had refused to disclose the company building its caucus reporting app due to cybersecurity concerns. HuffPost reported that the Nevada Democratic Party also paid Shadow to design its caucus reporting app. The Nevada Caucus will be held February 22.
Local Iowa Democratic officials had warned state-level officials there were problems with the app days in advance of the caucus, however as of Tuesday those problems were not fixed. Reports of the caucus results have been delayed due to issues with the app.
“We found inconsistencies in the reporting of three sets of results. In addition to the tech systems being used to tabulate results, we are also using photos of results and a paper trail to validate that all results match and ensure that we have confidence and accuracy in the numbers we report,” Iowa Democratic Party communications director Mandy McClure said in a statement on Monday night.
“This is simply a reporting issue, the app did not go down and this is not a hack or an intrusion. The underlying data and paper trail is sound and will simply take time to further report the results.”
Nevada caucus has stated, “We are not using the same program as used in Iowa.”
Laura Loomer, “Here I was thinking all the jokes about Hillary rigging the Iowa caucus were ust memes…but wow these people can’t help themselves can they?
Her 2016 campaign manager developed the app being used in the Iowa caucus that just screwed everything up.
Next thing you know you’re going to tell me that 33,000 votes were ‘deleted.'”
Laura Loomer has announced a run for Congress after making her name exposing corrupt politicians like the Clintons, communists like AOC, and jihadists Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. She’s running in President Trump’s home district. https://secure.lauraloomerforcongress.com/jr
Laura Loomer has a track record of confronting corrupt politicians as a journalist and because she was so effective the leftist media and Big Tech have silenced her by deplatforming her. BUT she’s fighting back and running for Congress. She’s been endorsed by Judge Jeanine, Michelle Malkin, Brandon Straka, Roger Stone, and the Limbaugh team. Because she’s been deplatformed and breaking election rules, BIG TECH has refused to allow her back on, so she’s suing them but there’s no clue as to when or if this will be resolved before the election, so I’m helping to get information about her out there. On 12/28/19, President Trump retweeted a tweet of mine on illegal immigration and in support of Laura Loomer’s congressional run. Because she will be a national voice capable of Taking on AOC and The Squad, she’s a candidate drawing support from all 50 states. Please support her with whatever you can afford.
