Re: Iowa Caucuses Cauc-Up App

Wolf Blitzer: Shawn Sebastian is joining us just now from Story County, he's a precinct secretary out there, what can you tell us about this delay in getting any results, Sean?

Shawn Sebastian: Well, Wolf, I have been on hold for over an hour with the Iowa Democratic Party. They tried to I think promote an app to report the results. The app by all accounts just doesn't work so we've been recommended to call into the hotline and the hotline has not been responsive.

Wolf Blitzer: Sean, have you got any explanation at all as to what's been going on?

Shawn Sebastian: No, I have not, no. I'm just waiting on hold and doing my best to report the results from my precinct.

Wolf Blitzer: What are you hearing? I know you're listening to a conversation from the Iowa Democratic party.

Shawn Sebastian: Umm...

Hotline: Can I help you?

Shawn Sebastian: This is a coincidence Wolf, I just got off hold just now,

Hotline: Hello?

Shawn Sebastian: So I've got to get off the phone to report the results

Wolf Blitzer: Go ahead and report your results, can...

Hotline: Hello?

Wolf Blitzer: ...we listen in as you report them, Sean?

Hotline: [Click]

Shawn Sebastian: Yep

Wolf Blitzer: Let's listen in

Shawn Sebastian: Alright. Okay. Hi, hello? They hung up on me. Shhiii...they hung up on me. Okay, I've got to get back in line on hold. They just hung up.
