Jill Stein and her Green party are withdrawing their efforts to force a recount of Presidential election votes in Pennsylvania. The court hearing for Monday has been cancelled because Jill Stein and the Green party does not have the $1 million needed for the recount to proceed. Stein has been concerned about ‘hacking’ of election machines in Pennsylvania although there is NO evidence of any hacking or tampering with Pennsylvania’s voting machines. On Monday, outside of Trump Towers, Jill Stein intends to make the announcement that she will stop pursuing a recount in Pennsylvania. A statement issued this evening by Pennsylvania GOP:
The filing of a discontinuance of the Election Contest by Jill Stein’s petitioners tonight is a recognition that their Election Contest was completely without merit, and meant solely for purposes to delay the Electoral College vote in Pennsylvania for President-Elect Trump…Candidate Jill Stein’s allegations created the false allusion that some unidentified foreign government hacked our state’s voting systems when absolutely no such proof existed. We believe that she always knew that she had no such proof.”
