    This concerned Mr True, who said he uncovered a major flaw in the count and the GOP county leader didn't seem to care.
    The GOP chairman in Iowa, Matt Strawn, said in a statement that state party officials have no reason to believe the final results from Appanoose County will change the outcome of the vote.

    In terms of his own candidate preference, Mr True backs Ron Paul, who came in third place in the caucuses.

    People aren't screaming fraud because regardless who won, they both get the same amount of delegates. Yes, it's concerning if there was a miscount. But this error wont change the effects of the delagate count.

    Hey with the Hawkeye--Cockeye--where anyone can register as a Republican and vote at the same time--who CARES what the final score was. It's all screwed up anything and is in no way any reflection of what other "REAL" primary ballot states are going to do. To add only 4% of the entire population of Iowa participated.
