1. Some weird stuff with this.

Whomever dialed the numbers in must have had a little weirdness happen. The official results were reported correctly, but when they dialed them in using the touch-tone, it looks like something got transposed."

Democratic Party officials discovered the error a week or so after the caucus when it reviewed the votes from the official precinct paperwork. But it did not publicly admit the mistake, nor change the website where it reported caucus results, coloradocaucus.org. The website still featured the incorrect numbers Monday night.

The website, Palacio said, "is only used for reporting to the press. It wasn't used in an official way. So we didn't go back and actually look at the website versus the math sheets."

Palacio told the Clinton campaign, but he never informed the Sanders campaign which didn't realize the mistake until informed by The Post.


Asked why he told one campaign and not the other, Palacio said "it didn't necessarily affect (them). It was our mistake that ended up affecting the estimation on Hillary's campaign."

Seriously? Percentages go from:
Sanders - 14,624 votes, or 54 percent, in Denver County to 15,194 votes, or 56.5 percent
Clinton - 12,097 votes, or 45 percent to 11,527, or 43 percent

and it only affects Clinton? Ummm . . . Palacio you may want to rethink that one!
