WASHINGTON, Feb 3 (Reuters) - “Inconsistencies” were found in Iowa’s Democratic presidential caucus results, the Iowa Democratic Party said in an email on Monday, adding it was due to a “reporting issue” and that tabulations would continue.
Iowa Democratic Party spokeswoman Mandy McClure said the party was using photos of results and a paper trail to validate them. She said the application being used to tabulate the results did not go down and the problem was not due to a hack or an intrusion.
“This is simply a reporting issue,” McClure said, adding the underlying data and paper trail were sound. (Reporting by Amanda Becker Editing by Sonya Hepinstall)
