    Nevada Dems planning to use similar app linked to Iowa caucus mess

    For its caucuses later this month, the Nevada Democratic Party (NDP) is planning to use an app similar to the one that contributed to the issues reporting the results of the Iowa caucuses on Monday night and it has paid almost $60,000 to the same company that developed the Iowa app.
    Shadow Inc., a tech firm that describes itself as a group that creates "a permanent advantage for progressive campaigns and causes through technology," is the company that created the Iowa Democratic Party's app, according to The New York Times. The NDP is also planning to use an app to report the results of its caucuses and paid Shadow $58,000 in August.

    Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman Tom Perez said Tuesday that the app blamed for delaying the results of the Iowa caucuses will not be used in the remaining primary contests.
    "It is clear that the app in question did not function adequately," Perez said in a statement. The app was created by Shadow Inc., a company based in Washington, D.C.
    "It will not be used in Nevada or anywhere else during the primary election process. The technology vendor must provide absolute transparent accounting of what went wrong," he added.

    Democratic leaders in Nevada have experienced glitches while testing an app made by Shadow Inc., the same company behind the Iowa caucus fiasco, according to a new report.
    Vice News’ Motherboard reported that volunteers in Nevada encountered the errors when trying to submit test caucus results. Motherboard cited an anonymous source and said it also reviewed the app. Democratic officials in Nevada announced earlier this week that they won’t be using the app during the state’s caucus set to take place on February 22.

    Motherboard said Friday that volunteers in Nevada who used the app were presented with a dashboard letting them submit how many caucus attendees they wished to add for each candidate. A pop-up window then asked, “Are you sure you want to submit the first alignment? Please ensure all in-person participant counts are correct before confirming.”
    But submitting the counts for the first alignment did not work, according to Motherboard. “Error,” a second pop-up said. “Could not submit alignment.”
    A Shadow spokesperson told Motherboard that “because the deadline for the Nevada app was later, Shadow’s Nevada app was still in beta testing, and that testing identified some errors that were being fixed.”
    Shadow also said that the app was on track for a “successful rollout” with the Nevada Democratic Party.
    Shadow’s statement appears to contradict what Democratic leaders in Nevada said earlier this week when announcing that they would no longer use the same app or vendor as the Iowa caucus.
    “NV Dems can confidently say that what happened in the Iowa caucus last night will not happen in Nevada on February 22nd. We will not be employing the same app or vendor used in the Iowa caucus,” Nevada State Democratic Party Chairman William McCurdy said in a statement.
    “We had already developed a series of backups and redundant reporting systems, and are currently evaluating the best path forward.”

    The hiring of a top presidential candidate’s staff member to a position within the Nevada Democratic Party has increased scrutiny of the party as it works to put together a contingency plan for its Feb. 22 caucuses.
    Dozens of Twitter users — most identified as supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders — on Sunday accused the Democratic Party of corruption and hurled insults at Emily Goldman, who was hired as the party’s Voter Protection Director in January. Many called for Goldman and Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez to be fired.
    Screenshots of Goldman’s Linkedin account noted she worked as an Iowa organizer for former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg until February, when she began her new role with the Nevada Democratic Party.

    When that Caucus comes around I bet its going to take a few days for the results to be finished, followed by another victory for Mayor Buttplug.

    Yeah if I were a betting person, I would bet Pete the cheat will get the nod.

    If it taKes a couple of days to show results, why not just get paper ballots and let them be counted with transparency?
