Pete Buttigieg was lucky Monday night, winning at least three Iowa precincts thanks to coin tosses — one of which is now attracting scrutiny online.
As captured in the footage above, the party operative flips the coin, moves it around in his hand rather than immediately flipping it, looks at the coin, then finally opts to flip it, before announcing it’s “heads,” meaning a victory of four delegates for Buttigieg.
At another caucus, Buttigieg ties Warren, thus resulting in another coins, which Buttigieg again wins. [Video]
A voter reported from another Iowa caucus that Buttigieg somehow ended up “tying” Bernie despite being several votes behind, again thanks to a coin toss.
