Hoo Boy: Hillary's Campaign Manager Was Involved With That Disastrous Iowa Caucus App

--- Quote ---This is not going to go over well with the Bernie Bros, who still blame Hillary Clinton and the DNC for Sanders' loss to the wife of Bill Clinton in 2016. As everyone knows by now, the Iowa caucuses on Monday were an unmitigated disaster, thanks to an app that malfunctioned, as the Iowa Democratic Party tells it.

Shadow Inc. — led by Gerard Niemira, who developed technology for Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 presidential bid — worked for the campaigns of Biden and Pete Buttigieg, as well as the Nevada and Wisconsin state Democratic parties, the New York Times reported Tuesday, citing campaign filing reports.

The company, which was paid $63,000 by the Iowa Democratic Party for the error-prone smartphone software that was supposed to help in the tallying of election results, was involved with texting technology and digital advertising with the Biden campaign. ...
