Democrats are joining with loony liberal Green Party candidate Jill Stein to try and steal the election from Donald Trump. Liberals have filed petitions for recount in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. But Republicans are fighting back. As ABC News reports:
Michigan’s elections board has deadlocked on President-elect Donald Trump’s request to prevent a recount, which means it will start next week unless the courts intervene.
Two Republicans voted Friday to prevent the recount, while two Democrats said it should proceed. A state spokesman says the statewide recount requested by Green Party candidate Jill Stein will begin Tuesday or Wednesday barring a court order.
Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, a Republican, asked the state Supreme Court on Friday to intervene and stop the recount. That motion is pending.
A Wisconsin recount is underway, though his supporters have filed a federal lawsuit trying to stop in. In Pennsylvania, Trump is asking a court to dismiss Stein’s recount request.
Additionally, Great America PAC, a pro Trump super PAC, has filed suit. Their statement:
Great America PAC filed a federal lawsuit in Wisconsin to stop the presidential vote recount by Green Party US candidate Jill Stein. Eric Beach, Co-Chairman of Great America PAC, stated, “Jill Stein is clearly not entitled under statute to a recount and for the State Board to allow it would be a massive waste of taxpayer resources in violation of the plain reading of the statute – Wisconsinites shouldn’t pay millions to line Jill Stein’s pockets.”
The lawsuit argues that Wisconsin law for recounts is unconstitutional because it fails the Supreme Court’s test for Equal Protection in the recount process established in Bush v Gore, because the State Board itself has expressed doubt it could complete the process in time, and because doing so could deny Wisconsin voters their vote in the Electoral College. The Federal suit seeks a temporary injunction to protect Wisconsin and the integrity of the Election.
President-elect Donald Trump rebuked the proposed recount as “a way for Jill Stein, who received less than one percent of the vote overall and wasn’t even on the ballot in many states, to fill her coffers with money.” Hillary Clinton, who conceded the election to Trump, and urged her supporters to “accept the result and look to the future,” joined Stein’s recount efforts.
We hope liberals get over their paranoid delusions and rejoin the reality based community. Until then, we’re happy to watch them keep wasting money.
