As reported late last week, Corrupt Hillary Clinton appeared to be making an attempt to steal the 2016 Presidential election from Donald Trump. In an effort to remain anonymous, Corrupt Hillary solicited the services of the Green Party’s Jill Stein.
Stein started fundraising online last week and raised more than $6 million to pay for the recounts but the manner in which money was donated raised some concerns. Her fund received $160,000 every hour on the hour which raised concerns that she was being paid off by some entity other than individual donors. These were not random people donating at 3am to her campaign but rather some “bot” that increased her account by this amount on the hour.
On Friday Stein filed for a recount in Wisconsin where she won less than 31,000 votes to Trump’s more than 1.4 million votes. On Monday November 28th Stein mounted a legal challenge in Pennsylvania. Apparently technically the Pennsylvania challenge came from voters. (It was previously reported that Stein missed the date for filing which was November 21st and so she is petitioning the Pennsylvania courts for a recount.) It is suspected that Stein will also challenge Michigan results on Wednesday. If Stein overturns Trump’s wins in these three states, Hillary would win the election. However, no recount has overturned a margin even as large as Michigan, the tightest contest of the three states potentially contested.
The problem with Pennsylvania’s recount process though for Stein and Clinton is that 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. As of noon Monday,
the Philadelphia city Board of Elections had received petitions for 35 of the 1,686 voting divisions in Philadelphia, according to City Commissioner Al Schmidt. By 5:30 p.m., that number was 74— about 4 percent of the city’s total divisions.
Stein needed more than 5,000 people in Philadelphia alone to sign petitions to file for a recount and would have had to mobilize about 30,000 people statewide to get a full recount going in Pennsylvania.
The laws in Pennsylvania are so stringent that it makes it nearly impossible to have a recount in the state. Unfortunately for Republicans there have been numerous mentions of fraud over the years in the city of Philadelphia alone. For example in 2012, in 59 voting divisions in the city, Mitt Romney received not one vote.
The Pennsylvania laws prevent a recount in areas like Philadelphia where there is good reason to suspect Democrat fraud. This year these same stringent laws may prevent Hillary from stealing the US election.
