I had written that the “gloves would come off” after Iowa on the GOP side of the race. It’s one day later. The gloves are off. No one is going to play nice anymore.
Trump is threatening to sue Ted Cruz over some VERY serious issues with tactics used by his campaign to win the caucus, edging out Trump by 6,000 votes. The Iowa Secretary of State has also weighed in on the bizarre “voting violation” flyers sent out by the Cruz campaign before the caucus, flatly affirming that there is no such law on the books. In essence, the Cruz campaign just made up a phony state law to try to shame and coerce hesitant voters into caucusing, by “outing” their past voting records to their neighbors and embarrassing them into caucus attendance.
Sarah Palin came out in support of Donald Trump, posting an extended commentary on her Facebook page about the issue of rampant cheating and corruption in politics.
“What [Cruz] did is unthinkable,” Trump said, later stating that Cruz was a “really fraudulent” character.
Cited: “Donald Trump, despite conceding defeat to Ted Cruz Monday night in Iowa, is now accusing the Texas Republican senator of stealing the race – and calling for either a new election to be held or the results to be nullified.”
Here’s what Trump tweeted:
Based on the fraud committed by Senator Ted Cruz during the Iowa Caucus, either a new election should take place or Cruz results nullified.

You can read the full story of the creepy, possibly illegal cheating tactics used by the Cruz campaign to get the edge over Trump and win the caucus right here. This is NOT a good beginning to the campaign season for the 2016 presidential race. So much is at stake here. Our nation is choosing a new leader of the free world. Anyone who cheats to win the very first caucus of the year sets a horrendous precedent for the tone of the whole campaign.
Trump also tweeted: “Based on the fraud committed by Senator Ted Cruz during the Iowa Caucus, either a new election should take place or Cruz results nullified…”
GOP candidate Ben Carson is furious with Cruz for allowing his campaign to spread rumors that Carson was dropping out of the race on the day of the Iowa Caucus. Carson now states he has proof that Cruz cheated to win Iowa:
