Jill Stein's racket
The liberal left, the alt movement in American society, continues to display its contempt for democracy in the form of rejecting the outcome of the presidential election. In addition to running to safe rooms, demonstrating in the streets, and pompously going off script or extra script at a play attended by the vice president-elect, Mike Pence, some are now demanding a recount.
Dr Jill Stein, (silly Green) candidate for the president, lost, and lost big. And maybe even helped Hillary Clinton (D) lose. (Thanks, Jill.)
Not content to wish Donald Trump (R) the best and hope for healing and unity and other good things, she is now raising money online for a recount in the close battleground states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. And she's taken in quite a haul – over $4 million at last count.
But wait! Initially, her online effort promised:
We cannot guarantee a recount will happen in any of these states we are targeting. We can only pledge we will demand recounts in those states.
If we do not raise enough for any recount (which is highly unlikely) we pledge to use the money toward election integrity efforts and to promote voting system reform.
But wait...there is still more. As Rachel Stockman of LawNewz notes:
And interestingly, as more donations started pouring in over the holiday, Stein moved her total fundraising goal to $7 million. She originally had a goal of $2.5 million. She also upped the amount she will need for lawyer’s fees.
And she cleaned up her online pleading to a simple donation form. (No, I won't give you a link to a potential scam.)
By the time you read this, there will be more changes to Stein's pleadings.
But actually, I do hope there is a good recount by those with integrity. Because then we will discover that Democratic vote corruption by dead voters, illegal aliens voting, and other forms of vote fraud that are a Democratic urban area specialty artificially pumped up Clinton's totals. And then – even more fun – more liberal voting fury. Wheeeeee!
