Jill Stein recount scam: Pennsylvania deadline missed, Trump certifies Michigan as millions are being wasted

While there is no proof of voter fraud or irregularities, Dr. Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate, continues to garner donations to fund a recount in three states crucial to the Donald Trump victory over Hillary Clinton. While the media loves the effort, Stein appears to have missed the deadline in Pennsylvania, Michigan has officially certified the Trump win and the millions just keep rolling in for Stein.

Stein missed Pennsylvania’s deadline to file for a voter-initiated recount according to Wanda Murren, spokeswoman for the Pennsylvania Department of State, citing the November 21 date. While the race was “close” and unexpected, Trump’s win was over 71,000 votes.

“Petitioners have grave concerns about the integrity of electronic voting machines used in their districts,” the lawsuit for a recount stated.

Democratic Secretary of State Pedro Cortes says there’s no evidence of voting irregularities during the Nov. 8 election

“Absolutely not,” Cortes told reporters. “There is no evidence whatsoever that points to any type of irregularity in any way, shape or form.”

“We had not uncovered any actionable evidence of hacking or outside attempts to alter the voting technology,” said Clinton campaign counsel Mark Erik Elias.

What was stated as a $1.2 million project, quickly became $4 million and now Stein’s goal is raising $7 million with little to no promise of success.

For example, in Michigan, the Board of State Canvassers certified Trump’s win over Clinton by 10,704 votes out of about 4.8 million cast. Stein’s team said it plans to demand a statewide hand-recount on Wednesday, in accordance with the 48-hour deadline to do so.

In Wisconsin, where Trump defeated Clinton by a percentage point, the bipartisan state Elections Commission announced plans to begin a recount on Thursday, provided that proper payment for the recount has been received by the state. It rejected the Stein campaign’s request for a statewide hand recount, instead leaving it to each county to decide whether to use a machine or not. The Stein campaign said it was filing a legal challenge to trigger an all-hand recount. (Emphasis added, the Dispatch)

Yes, proper payment.

In Wisconsin, the victory was over 22,000 votes and a recount does seem likely. Clinton would have to win ALL THREE STATES TO CHANGE THE OUTCOME OF THE RACE.

Trump has earned a 306-232 electoral college lead over Clinton, with the winner needing 270 to win the race, despite Clinton’s lead in the popular vote due to massive success in states like New York, California and Illinois.

Stein told NPR’s Lakshmi Singh that she wasn’t expecting her requests for recounts to change the outcome of the election results, but that she was pushing for them to ensure the integrity of the electoral process.

“In my view, this is not likely at all to change the outcome, and that’s what the computer and voting security experts say as well,” Stein said Saturday on All Things Considered. “They are not expecting the outcome to change here. But it’s the voters who benefit by standing up and saying we deserve a voting system that is secure in which we know our votes are being counted and our votes are being respected.”

And raise millions.

“This recount is just a way for Jill Stein, who received less than 1 percent of the vote overall and wasn’t even on the ballot in many states, to fill her coffers with money, most of which she will never even spend on this ridiculous recount,” Trump said in a written statement.

He followed it up with a tweet Saturday night: “The Green Party scam to fill up their coffers by asking for impossible recounts is now being joined by the badly defeated & demoralized Dems.”

“It’s taking place. The Green Party has the legal right to do it,” he said during CNN’s “State of the Union.” “No one expects there to be profound change, but there’s nothing wrong with going through the process.”

    Depressing to see this happening: Jill Stein will walk away from this debacle with lots of email addresses and dtion monies from fools who do not trust our voting system. At the same time, this nation will become more divided

  2. Connie Lucas says:

    Thank You Jill Stein

    • WayneYour Name... says:

      Thanks for what?? She just did this to make us believe our votes didn’t count. She is nothing more than a trouble maker. Go away Jill Stein. It’s over and her suit in Penn. will be thrown out. She missed the dead line for recount, and to do this by 11/21/2016. Not knowing the law is no excuse. Even if the judge allows it Penn. would not get the recount in by December 13th
