Oops! Jill Stein Misses Pennsylvania Recount Deadline – But She Did Raise a Ton of Cash
Green Party candidate raised enough money for a recount of votes in Pennsylvania but she missed the deadline on Monday to file.
It was a nearly impossible task to begin with.
Despite her successful fundraising effort, state law made Jill Stein’s potential Pennsylvania recount next to impossible.
According to state law three voters in each precinct or election district in Pennsylvania must submit a notarized affidavit to the clerk in their individual election districts in order to initiate a recount.
There are 9,163 precincts in Pennsylvania.
That would be a monumental task.
Stein missed the deadline.
Trump won Pennsylvania by over 70,000 votes.
This was all a scam.
The Washington Examiner reported:
Jill Stein has everything she needs to launch a presidential recount. She’s got the cash, the grassroots fervor and the spotlight of an adoring media. But there’s one thing she needs to overturn Trump’s victory: a calendar.
Stein missed Pennsylvania’s deadline to file for a voter-initiated recount. That blown deadline is a huge blow for Democrats who have pinned their hopes on recounts in the Keystone State, Michigan and Wisconsin.
“According to Wanda Murren, spokeswoman for the Pennsylvania Department of State,” the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Monday, “the deadline for a voter-initiated recount was Monday, Nov. 21.”
To keep their hopes alive, Stein has mounted a legal challenge in an attempt to force a recount. While the chances of litigation are uncertain, the vote tally is clear. Trump beat Clinton in Pennsylvania, a feat not accomplished by a Republican since Ronald Reagan in 1984.
