Bernie Sanders has called for an investigation into the coin flips that gave Hillary Clinton six delegates, which decided the results in Monday’s Iowa caucus.
During a press gaggle Tuesday in Keane, New Hampshire, Sanders said, “I do think it’s kind of unfortunate that — and again, I don’t want to misspeak here, but it may be the case that some delegates were selected based on a flip of a coin. Not the best way to do democracy.” (RELATED: Hillary Won Six Straight Coin Tosses To Win Handful Of County Delegates [VIDEO])
When asked about the Iowa results, Sanders said, “We want to look at some of the numbers. The last that I saw is that we were four delegates down — as I understand it, there were some precincts actually where delegates were won with a flip of a coin, actually. I’m not sure of that. I think there were six cases. So we want to take a look at that.” (RELATED: Sanders Campaign Taking A Look At A Recount In Iowa)
“[W]e want to look at [the results.] When you have — again, you know, I was on a plane last night and you know, I’m here right now so we haven’t had time to analyze it but our people in Iowa are taking a look at that,” Sanders said. “But I do think it’s kind of unfortunate that — and again, I don’t want to misspeak here, but it may be the case that some delegates were selected based on a flip of a coin. Not the best way to do democracy.”
