Hillary Clinton surrogate Jill Stein’s bid to help snatch the presidency away from Donald Trump ran into more trouble on Monday after reportedly missing the deadline for recount in Pennsylvania. If this is indeed the case then it would be more bad news after the phony Green party nominee was denied a hand recount of votes in Wisconsin.
There are conflicting reports as to Pennsylvania (where the rules are more complicated) and Stein has indeed demanded a recount but according to a report by the Washington Examiner “Pennsylvania State Department says Stein missed recount deadline”:
Jill Stein has everything she needs to launch a presidential recount. She’s got the cash, the grassroots fervor and the spotlight of an adoring media. But there’s one thing she needs to overturn Trump’s victory: a calendar.
Stein missed Pennsylvania’s deadline to file for a voter-initiated recount. That blown deadline is a huge blow for Democrats who have pinned their hopes on recounts in the Keystone State, Michigan and Wisconsin.
“According to Wanda Murren, spokeswoman for the Pennsylvania Department of State,” the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Monday, “the deadline for a voter-initiated recount was Monday, Nov. 21.”
To keep their hopes alive, Stein has mounted a legal challenge in an attempt to force a recount. While the chances of litigation are uncertain, the vote tally is clear. Trump beat Clinton in Pennsylvania, a feat not accomplished by a Republican since Ronald Reagan in 1984.
While it wasn’t a landslide, it wasn’t close either. Trump carried the state with 70,000 votes, a significant margin that will be hard to overcome.
Stein will of course file a lawsuit – as she is doing in Wisconsin – and her
Clinton-Soros“grass roots” pile of loot will continue to grow to cover any and all fees in her crusade for election “honesty”.
Pennsylvania’s Secretary of State who happens to be a Democrat dismissed Clintonstein’s allegations for fraud according to the Philadelphia Inquirer:
Stein’s lawsuit would have to present evidence that election fraud was probable in Pennsylvania. 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.”
While Stein is essentially alleging that errors, tampering or hacking had occurred to affect outcomes in the three states, even computer scientists who recommended a recount to rule out tampering have gone to great lengths to make it clear there is no proof of hacking or fraud in the election results.
The whole sordid dog and pony show is total horseshit and an affront to the democratic process that has the Clinton crime syndicate’s fingerprints all over it. If Ms. Stein really gave a rat’s ass about election transparency then she would have called for recounts in a number of states that Hillary barely won, her refusal to do so shows that she is a partisan hack who like the other leftist hero Bernie Sanders sold her soul to the company store.
There should be some sort of repercussions for this gross travesty and if somehow Trump manages to navigate the minefield that the media and Democrats have laid for him to be sworn in as POTUS come January then he should immediately direct his new Attorney General Jeff Sessions to launch an investigation into this shameless con job.
