Santorum May Have Won Iowa: Vote Counter Says Typo Gave Romney 20 Extra Votes

From: HUMAN EVENTS

Rick Santorum may have actually won the Iowa Caucus by 12 votes.

Edward True, a Ron Paul supporter, told KCCI News in Iowa that he helped count the votes in his precinct and "jotted the results down on a piece of paper to post" to his Facebook page.

He said Romney received two votes in his precinct, but the Iowa Republican Party credited Romney with 22 votes.

True is filing a notarized statement, and, if he turns out to be right, that 20 vote difference would mean Santorum actually won Iowa by eight votes.

"When Mitt Romney won Iowa by eight votes and I've got a 20-vote discrepancy here, that right there says Rick Santorum won Iowa," True told KCCI. "Not Mitt Romney."

Added True: "I imagine it's a good possibility that somebody instead of hitting 2 might have hit 22 by accident."
