Following the Iowa caucuses, where GOP contender Donald Trump placed second behind Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Trump appeared to be gracious in his defeat and remained relatively quiet about the ordeal… until now. In a series of blistering tweets, Trump went for the throat and leveled some rather bold accusations against Cruz over what happened Monday night.

Initially, Trump congratulated Cruz on his victory in the Hawkeye State, but after learning about what happened between Cruz and Dr. Ben Carson, his attitude changed dramatically. Now The Donald is saying that Cruz “stole” the election, and he’s demanding either a new election or that Cruz’s results be nullified.

For those unaware, on Monday night, the Cruz campaign spread around false information published by CNN that stated Carson was withdrawing from the race after the Iowa caucuses. The story wasn’t true, yet Cruz staffer circulated it anyways in hopes of drawing away Carson’s voters, which may or may not have worked.

However, Cruz later apologized for the incident, but it appears as if Trump isn’t about to let it go so easily.

The certificate that Trump spoke of was a mailer the Cruz campaign sent out to voters to shame them into caucusing for the Senator. It gave voters an “F” grade and accused them of a violation while comparing them to their neighbors, then said the only way to “fix” the issue would be to get out and vote on Monday night.

In a statement over the mailers, Iowa’s Secretary of State said the flyer “misrepresents Iowa election law,” and explained that they secretary has no jurisdiction over caucus voting.

“Additionally, the Iowa Secretary of State’s Office never ‘grades’ voters. Nor does the Secretary of State maintain records related to Iowa Caucus participation. Caucuses are organized and directed by the state political parties, not the Secretary of State, nor local elections officials. Also, the Iowa Secretary of State does not ‘distribute’ voter records. They are available for purchase for political purposes only, under Iowa Code.”
