Oops! Jill Stein missed the deadline for voter-initiated recount, which was last Monday, November 21 ! By the way, she knew this all along. So why raise the $7 million? The anti-profit socialist candidate is not against keeping the left-over millions to herself. No recount for her and Trump still gets to keep Pennsylvania electoral votes and the over 70,000 popular votes.
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.”
Securing a recount in Pennsylvania will be more difficult than in Wisconsin.
Pennsylvania law allows recounts to be conducted at a precinct if at least three voters from that precinct request one. Stein’s supporters started doing that Monday, but it would take thousands of voters to get them going in all of Pennsylvania’s precincts.
