Did Typo Give Romney Extra Votes in Iowa?

KCCI-TV reports that a typographical error may have awarded Mitt Romney an 20 additional votes in the Iowa caucus final vote tally.

Edward True said "he helped count the votes and jotted the results down on a piece of paper to post to his Facebook page. He said when he checked to make sure the Republican Party of Iowa got the count right, he said he was shocked to find they hadn't."

Official results had Romney winning by just eight votes, so if the error is confirmed Rick Santorum may have been the true winner.
