Green Party candidate for President, Jill Stein, is asking for recounts of the votes in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. She has raised $5 million of the $7 million needed to pay for recounts in those states.
On Friday afternoon, just before the deadline, Stein filed her request for a recount with election officials in Wisconsin. The state has agreed to perform a statewide recount.
Michigan has finally declared Trump to be the winner of their Presidential election by a mere 10,704 votes. Now they are facing a recount of their 4.8 million votes. Recount deadlines close in Michigan and Pennsylvania next week. It is expected Stein will file for recounts in both states. Clinton lost Pennsylvania by 68,000 votes and Wisconsin by 27,000 votes.
Stein only raised $3.5 million during her campaign for President so there are questions about how she has been able to raise $5.5 million for recounts. It seems obvious that Clinton supporters are providing funding, although Stein maintains her efforts are not intended to help Hillary:
“This is not being done to benefit one candidate at the expense of the other,” she said in a PBS NewsHour interview Thursday. “This is being done because Americans, you know, come out of this election not happy campers.”
Clinton supporters are taking a new approach to her loss with the mantra “She Won”. Hollywood types like “Avengers” director Joss Whedon, and actress Debra Messing, are leading an “audit the vote” campaign. They are demanding the Justice Department check the voting machine totals in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
“Demand an audit. Make the call,” Whedon wrote in a tweet to his 107,000 followers on Tuesday that included a photo of Clinton overlaid with the message: “SHE WON.”
It is extremely unlikely that the Left will be successful in overturning the election but it seems they won’t stop trying. Remember when Hillary and the Left were outraged because Trump was hesitant to say he would accept the results of the election? Now the Left is doing exactly that, refusing to accept the results of the election.
UPDATE: According to the Washington Post the Clinton Campaign will participate in the Wisconsin recount. More to come on this breaking story.
It’s a fundraising gimmick. Nothing more.
Meanwhile, Grandma Cankles gets thrown under the bus:
I’d like to think the campaign’s legal team will be able to shoot this nefarious attempt down; and it’s most likely a futile attempt. The three states in question were decided by far larger margins than Florida during 2000. This only makes me detest them more, and increase my support for Trump.
They want to keep the protests going and, thus, the violence in the streets.
The press is loving this!
can not help but wonder how much PizzaGate has to do with this recount try. the press is NOT loving a pedophile ring scandal

I sense a backfire coming here. What happens if they find a lot of rigging in Detroit and Dearboristan. All of said rigging would favor Hillary and the democrats.
Why shouldn’t she challenge the results?
After all, none other than Saint Donald told us the election was rigged?
hey pig, why don’t you say that to my face liberal fucking retard!
Remember when the liberal media said Americans just want this election to be over right before Election Day, when they thought Hillary would win?
Good times, good times . . .
The most interesting part of the story is that she’s raised more money on this effort than she did for her whole campaign!
Since many of the ‘grassroots’ Hillary backers are not well off (see the paid protesters), that leaves the big money people as the ones donating. Since straw donors are de rigueur in Clintonville, a quick audit of where the money originated would be cool.
where is slick willy?
