Stein Drops Pennsylvania Recount Effort

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein dropped a court case Saturday night that had sought to force a recount of Pennsylvania's presidential election. Stein said her purpose was to ensure "our votes are safe and secure," targeting Pennsylvania though her lawyers offered no evidence of hacking in Pennsylvania's election, and despite no allegations that any tampering had occurred. It seems she dropped the recount effort to avoid paying a $1 million bond ordered by the court though she raised $6.3 million to recount election votes in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, all won by President-elect Donald J. Trump on November 8, 2016. The irony of Stein's cause to ensure vote integrity is that she chose Pennsylvania over Nevada, where voter fraud has been alleged, and where Secretary Clinton won by only 26,434 votes over President-elect Trump in contrast to Trump's 68,236 vote plurality in Pennsylvania. Additionally, Secretary Clinton won New Hampshire by only 2,736 votes; Maine by only 18,894 votes; Minnesota by only 44,765 votes and New Mexico by only 64,849 votes -- all less than the Pennsylvania votes she seeks to investigate. There is a difference, of course. It seems Jill Stein is concerned only with vote integrity in states won by President-elect Donald J. Trump. Though it remains unclear whose shed she's kept in, Jill Stein is clearly a liberal tool.
