LANSING, Mich. — The recounts shall continue! Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein celebrated Monday, as a Michigan judge blocked an attempt to sink the recount effort in the Great Lakes State.
“This recount advances our fundamental right to vote, and election fairness and accuracy, and that these things are the bedrock of our democracy,” Stein said Monday morning, at a press event in New York City.
Michigan is only one of three states in which Stein is seeking a clarification on voter intent.
The Wisconsin recount is well underway. In Pennsylvania, a court ruling said voters demanding a recount would have to pony up a $1 million, so Stein said Sunday she’d drop it. But now she’s thrown it in reverse and said she’ll file a federal lawsuit.
President Elect Donald Trump is over all of it. He tweeted Sunday calling it all a “scam to raise money.”
Stein urged the Donald to check her website where it explains this isn’t her first recount rodeo. If there’s any surplus after the last vote is counted, the rest of the money goes to promoting voting system reform. Not to the Green Party.
It’s doubtful the recount will have any effect on election results, but hey… leave no stone unturned right?
