Green Party candidate Jill Stein has spent the last few weeks raising millions of dollars to fund recounts in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Last weekend, she thought she had won the recount battle when Hillary Clinton joined her pathetic movement. That’s why it was particularly devastating for Stein last night when her entire plan came crashing down…
News Ninja reported that on Wednesday night, a Pennsylvania county judge dismissed Stein’s attempts to recount 72 out of 435 precincts in the state. Judge Bernard A. Moore turned down Stein’s petition two days after it was filed in Commonwealth Court, and it effectively means that Stein’s chances of securing a recount in the state are shot.
This came as Democrats spoke out to slam Stein and Clinton for their recount movement, calling it a waste of time and resources.
“Believe me, if there was anything I could do to make Hillary Clinton the next president of the United States, I would,” said former Gov. Ed Rendell, a longtime supporter. “But this is a big waste of time.”
President-elect Donald Trump also attacked Stein’s recount plan in a statement to Bloomberg:
“The people have spoken and the election is over, and as Hillary Clinton herself said on election night, in addition to her conceding by congratulating me, ‘We must accept this result and then look to the future.’
This recount is just a way for Jill Stein, who received less than one 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.
All three states were won by large numbers of voters, especially Pennsylvania, which was won by more than 70,000 votes.
This is a scam by the Green Party for an election that has already been conceded, and the results of this election should be respected instead of being challenged and abused, which is exactly what Jill Stein is doing.”
