Green Party’s Stein files for Wisconsin recount

by FoxNews.com  |  published on November 26, 2016

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein officially filed a request to election officials Friday to conduct a recount in the battleground state of Wisconsin.

State Elections Commission Administrator Mike Haas said Stein filed the request around mid-afternoon Friday, about an hour and a half ahead of a 5 p.m. CST deadline.

“The Commission is preparing to move forward with a statewide recount of votes for President of the United States,” Haas said in a press release. “We have assembled an internal team to direct the recount, we have been in close consultation with our county clerk partners, and have arranged for legal representation by the Wisconsin Department of Justice.”

Stein, who earned little more than 1 percent of the national vote, formally requested a Wisconsin recount Friday afternoon, vowing to do the same in the coming days in Michigan and Pennsylvania. There is no evidence of election tampering in the states where Trump scored razor-thin victories, but Green Party spokesman George Martin insisted “the American public needs to have it investigated to make sure our votes count.”

Wisconsin GOP Executive Director Mark Morgan issued a statement calling the recount request “absurd and nothing more than an expensive political stunt that undermines Wisconsin’s election process.” Republican Sen. Devin LeMahieu, who chairs the Senate elections committee, said he would re-examine state law next year to ensure “a candidate who received 1 percent of the vote cannot hold the results of an election hostage.”

    Jill Stein is delusional if she thinks she is going to suddenly win any of these states. If any of these recounts produce a significant change in vote totals it will create a level of turmoil not seen since the Florida recount in 2000.

    The democrats doesn’t want to accept the defeats that they lost in this election, in spite of cheating and asking all the illegals to vote for Hillary. They complain that the election was hack by Russian. People quite blaming Russia they did not hack the election, it was you Hillary using Soros machine to cheat.BE HONEST, HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY BE TRUTHFUL DO THE RIGHT THINGS INSTEAD OF DOING EVIL, YOU KNOW EVIL WILL NEVER PREVAILS.

    What and why is this great desire of the liberals, democrats and independents to continue their effort to absolute destroy this country? Not perfect but beyond a doubt the greatest experiment in individual human rights ever and they continue to try and turn us in to a totalitarian vassal slave state that every action is controlled by the corrupt liberal government. Are we facing another revolution to ensure our constitutional rights are preserved for us and our posterity?

    Perhaps
    she is trying to make brownie points. She knows there would not be
    enough votes for her to make any difference but they may find enough
    votes to help Hillary over turn the election. This way Hillary
    doesn’t initiate it to make her look like the sore loser we all know
    she is. As a show of gratitude there could be a nice cushy position
    for Stein in the Hillary Administration.

    • metheoldsarge

      Rumor has it that Soros will finance it.

      • Anouk

        Soros keeps giving a lot of his money to destroy the America he hates.
        We should have a tough leader like Putin to stop this criminal communist and prosecute him.
        Get him out of this country before it is too late.

    I am sure the recount will show that the votes for Jill were manipulated to go to Hillary. Jill will get a just count and get all of Hillary’s ill gotten votes and tip the scales to her.

    Biggest question that comes to my mind is, if she’s “So Concerned” with election fraud, why is it only these states that Pres. Trump won by a small margin, that she’s calling for a recount?? What about New Hampshire that Clinton won by only 4000 votes? What about all the other states that she barely one?
    Add to this the fact that her “Fund” grew steadily, even in the middle of the night when most of Americans are sleeping.
    And when this 1st started, she wanted to raise $2.5mil. When that amount was reached, the Goal was reset to $4.5 mil. When that was passed the goal was reset again to $7 mil? All Non-Refundable, btw.

      She will be able to convert the extra monies to her private use, after paying tax.
