  • Michigan Pushes Anti-Jill Stein Law

    Michigan lawmakers are rushing to push through a law to block future attempts like the one they are currently dealing with. The frivolous waste of money lawsuit brought by Dr. Jill Stein. As Michigan lawmakers currently look for money to repair water lines poisoning their residents, Stein is burning up taxpayer money in the state. Now lawmakers are rushing the legislation that will force any candidate who didn't get at least 5% of the vote to have to pay the full cost of a recount. Currently, Stein will only pay $1 million of a recount expected to cost taxpayers as...

    A federal judge who ordered Michigan to begin its recount effectively ended it on Wednesday, tying his decision to a state court ruling that found Green Party candidate Jill Stein had no legal standing to request another look at ballots. The ruling seals Republican Donald Trumpís narrow victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton for Michiganís 16 electoral votes. U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith agreed with Republicans who argued that the three-day recount must end a day after the state appeals court dealt a blow to the effort. The court said Stein, who finished fourth in Michigan on Nov. 8, didnít have...

Why not also recount New Hampshire (Hillary by 0.4%)? I hope that the next time something like this happens, the GOP immediately demands a recount as well, but of those states the Democrats barely won.

    A federal judge in Detroit has called a hearing for 10:30 a.m. Wednesday to consider whether Michigan's presidential recount should continue after an unfavorable ruling by a state appeals court. U.S District Judge Mark Goldsmith's order allowed the recount to begin Monday, but his decision dealt with the timing, not the merits of the count. On Tuesday, a Michigan appeals court ordered the state's election board to reject Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein's petition for the recount, finding that she had no chance of emerging as the winner in the state. Goldsmith's hearing on Wednesday could sort out whether...

    Voter fraud in Detroit naaaaaah.....In this case "no recount" may equal "protecting Democrat fraud." In a way, Michigan is a bit like California. Urban centers vote heavily for Democrats, but the rest of the state has a tendency to break for Republicans. This means a large swath of the population is, at least politically, held hostage by a few failing, very left-wing, cities.

    The Michigan recount finished its first day, and there were already reports that half of Detroitís votes might not be recounted, as well as other problems with ballots. The reason so many Detroit ballots could get left out of the recount: The number of ballots listed in poll books is not the same as the totals given on machine printouts. Clinton rang up huge margins in Wayne County, home to populous Detroit, and she would likely need her margin there to grow in order to shrink Trumpís 10,704 vote margin in Michigan. Clinton received 66 percent of the Wayne County...

    There are some really strange things going on in Detroit with the vote. First the Detroit Free Press wrote an article saying that over 59% of Detroit precincts couldn't be recounted due to mismatched votes. Then the claims that there are 85,000 uncounted votes in Detroit. So I did a little digging. First the Wayne County Clerk lists 1.134 million ballots cast, but if you add the total presidential votes there are 1.252 million total. Second, Detroit is listed as having a 97% voter turnout, but is short the 85,000 votes vs ballots cast. This matches votes cast for other...

But Schuette is arguing that Michigan courts should handle the matter. "Michigan law needs to govern, not some federal takeover," Schuette said on FOX News just...

    Michigan will become the second state to conduct a recount of ballot casts during the 2016 presidential election. U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith early Monday morning issued an order for Michigan election officials to begin counting ballots starting at noon. The ruling follows a request from Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein after a razor-thin margin made the state the last to be called in the November election.

A recount is already underway in Wisconsin, although it is turning out to be far more costly than Stein had counted on and a judge recently ruled against her demand that every ballot be counted by hand.
