Green Party drops bid for statewide Pennsylvania recount

December 4, 2016

HARRISBURG, Pa. – Jill Stein’s recount efforts in one state have hit a wall.

Green Party-backed voters dropped a court case Saturday night that had sought to force a statewide recount of Pennsylvania’s Nov. 8 presidential election, won by a razor-thin margin by Republican Donald Trump.

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, who has raised over $6.9 million to fund recount efforts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, had framed the issue as an effort to explore whether voting machines and systems had been hacked and the election result manipulated.

The decision came two days before a court hearing was scheduled in the case for Monday. Saturday’s court filing to withdraw the case said the Green Party-backed voters who filed the case “are regular citizens of ordinary means” and cannot afford the $1 million bond ordered by the court by 5 p.m. Monday. However, Green Party-backed efforts to force recounts and analyze election software in scattered precincts were continuing. The court’s order can be read here.

Stein plans to make an announcement about the Pennsylvania recount Monday outside the Trump Tower in New York, aides said.

    I can see Hillary requesting recounts on some of these close states, but Jill Stein has zero chance of winning any of these states or the presidency. If a recount handed Stein a state it would probably bring about calls for a recount of a number of states.

    This is one last chance for Stein to bilk her gullible followers out of their money and for her to get a little more press coverage. At this point her efforts are nothing but a distraction from a fringe candidate who is unhappy that Hillary Clinton lost.

    This woman is running a money scam being pushed by Soros to help him get some of his money back that he so heavily invested in! They just knew they were going to end America this time with the beast of Hellary!!

  • Ron Long says:

    Make an announcement in front of Trump Tower on Monday? Is she going to set fire to an American flag while there? I would not put it past her.

    When they see the rope that’s going to hang them they shut the fuck up !
    Or the Hilderbeast herself tells them to back off , yea that’s not going to work either . Better try something different, like tell everyone Planet X is going to hit just the USA . I say we the people send a new message to the liberal cry baby’s, Tell’m Donald J. Trump has already saved thousands of jobs with FORD and CARRIER AIR CONDITIONERS, that’s more Jobs saved in one month than in the WHOLE FUCKING 8 YEARS OF OBAMA IN OFFICE. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, All you liberals can Fucking drop dead and we the people would not give a rats ass . You all don’t deserve our new president, come to think of it it’s probably because you’re all so Fucking stupid you wouldn’t know what to do with yourself’s if you actually got a job and had to work, not a single one of you can follow directions or take responsibility, your lives are pitiful,the way you walk around looking into a Fucking phones like zombies.

    $6.9 million dollars…yet Stein refuses to use a million to get the Recount?
    So the question remains…How important was a recount Or How much Cash can be raised for the Green Party?
    Stein wasn’t heard during the campaign… So now she wants to be Relavent…Really?
    Wasted Time…and Money!

    1. ArcticGrayling says:

      Whose money? I reckon from Soros.

      1. Webb says:

        Stein says…140,000 thousand donors gave the $6.9 million, Really?
        As you stated possibly Soros or other Big Donors…Somewhere there is Some Big Money!

        1. ArcticGrayling says:

          She’s about as believable as Hillary. She’s also clinically insane.

    2. The Redhawk says:

      She is Shopping for a Beach front House next to that other FRAUD uncle BERNIE with that Soros/Clinton money….. bad thing to Screw CLINTONS…bad things can happen…

  • otoman says:

    The intent was “to see if voting machines had been hacked…” They probably were, but by Clinton, and I bet she ordered Stein to step down!

    1. Ron Long says:

      Actually the machines were hacked by Democrats, however there was so much in the news informing people to recheck their votes before submitting them that it forced the precincts to reset the machines to perform as they were intended to by not switching votes and/or paper ballots were submitted instead. Remember back in 2012 when several voting precincts recorded ZERO votes for Romney? That is a random mathematical impossibility unless the machines were rigged. We have not had a fair and honest presidential election since 1956.

      1. Rodney Steward says:

        How can they be hacked when they said that they are not connected to the internet! It would have to be an inside job! But it turned out good for us anyway!:-)

    2. The Redhawk says:

      Sounds like the TYPE of BULL CRAP coming from Obama and Clinton…Heard that MICHIGAN Cancelled the recount .. called it UNNECESSARY since Jill Stein only had 1% of the vote.. and nothing would change anything for HER………So how about PA ?????

  • American Me says:

    Some how I am not surprised by this move.It was all a scam to raise money for the green party whoever they are.Going in there was little chance if any of changing the election results.Recounts should only be considered if the election is very close and only by the 2nd place candidate.Neither of those apply here.Will these crybabies ever just shut up and accept that Donald Trump won fair and square???I sure hope so but I have never seen such a display of ignorance and stupidity.I kind of feel sorry for these poor lost souls.They have allowed themselves to become programmed in the government common core school system and they can’t break free.

    1. otoman says:

      To liberals, Trump did not win fair and square. All the illegal votes and dead man votes for Hillary didn’t help!

      1. ArcticGrayling says:

        Correct. No election in which Dems are involved can ever be fair and square, but they lost anyway.

      2. MyRoseHasTHORNS says:

        Next time they’ll stuff another 20k on top of what they did this time. WE must prevent that by installing a REAL Voter ID system. Photos don’t work, we need a Bio-Metric system to guarantee one vote per person, no crossing state lines, etc!

    2. MyRoseHasTHORNS says:

      Don’t feel sorry for them, they are among the biggest bullies out there! Their way or protests that are hell to pay. AND they ENJOY their protests, riots, flag burning 🙁
