Despite reports to the contrary, the Clintonstein monster isn’t actually giving up on the recount of votes in Pennsylvania. It is now being reported that Green party presidential candidate and Team Hillary flunky Jill Stein will be taking her case to federal court on Monday.
Stein’s beef over a state judge’s request for a $1 million bond is a bit of a head-scratcher considering her newly found phenomenal ability to raise money, something that was a problem during her actual campaign. It also stretches the bounds of credibility that she would be crying the poor mouth over such a paltry amount, George Soros probably has more than that in between his sofa cushions.
The Guardian is reporting “Jill Stein to take fight to federal court after $1m bond set”:
Green party candidate Jill Stein vowed late on Saturday to bring her fight for a recount of votes cast in Pennsylvania in the US presidential election to federal court, after a state judge ordered her campaign to post a $1m bond.
“The judge’s outrageous demand that voters pay such an exorbitant figure is a shameful, unacceptable barrier to democratic participation,” Stein said in a statement. “UNo voter in America should be forced to pay thousands of dollars to know if her or his vote was counted.”
The Stein campaign said it would file for emergency relief in the Pennsylvania effort in federal court on Monday, “demanding a statewide recount on constitutional grounds”.
Jonathan Abady, lead counsel to Stein’s recount efforts, said in a statement it had become clear “the state court system is so ill-equipped to address this problem”, the statement said “we must seek federal court intervention”.
The bond was set by the Commonwealth court of Pennsylvania a day after representatives of President-elect Donald Trump requested a $10m bond, according to court papers. The court gave the petitioners until 5pm local time on Monday to post the bond, but said it could modify the amount if shown good cause. Instead, Stein’s campaign withdrew.
“Petitioners are regular citizens of ordinary means. They cannot afford to post the $1,000,000 bond required by the court,” wrote attorney Lawrence Otter, informing the court of the decision to withdraw.
Stein’s protestations on behalf of the little people is a joke given that her recount on behalf of Clinton is causing the state’s targeted – all won by Trump – to divert funds away from programs that residents depend on.
It could be that increased scrutiny now that it has become obvious that this is a Clinton operation has given Dr. Jill the yips about her participation in what can only be described as a criminal conspiracy to commit electoral fraud or at the very least engaging in racketeering.
It’s also hard to see how her attorney’s claims that a statewide recount on “constitutional grounds” has any merit. I can’t recall seeing the right to steal an election on behalf of an embittered sore loser anywhere in the Constitution.
Just one more twist in the wildest presidential election in U.S. history.
