The reporting of votes from the Democratic Iowa Caucuses has been in turmoil.

The new app used was intended to speed up the process but actually caused a huge delay.

The reason for the delay was said to be due to “quality control” issues.

Chad Wolf is the acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary and said that DHS offered to test the new caucus app used in Iowa.

Appearing on Fox News Channel, Wolf said the offer was from the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.

Wolf said that DHS could test the app used to tally votes for the Iowa Caucus from a hacking perspective but their offer was declined.

From Breitbart:

According to reports, the app did not live up to expectations as the Iowa Democratic Party has been unable to provide the results of Iowa Caucus on time.

DOOCY: It was going to change everything. As it turns out, behind the scenes, before they used it last night, DHS had offered to what the app?

WOLF: So, our cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency has offered to test that app from a hacking perspective. They declined. And so, we’re seeing a couple of issues with it. I would say right now, we don’t see any malicious cyberactivity going on.

DOOCY: Nobody hacked into it?

WOLF: No one hacked into it, so this is more of a stress or a load issue, as well as a reporting issue that we’re seeing in Iowa.
