    Donald Trump and his backers have launched formal legal bids to stop recounts in, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan that are being pushed for by failed Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Lawyers for Trumpís campaign have entered arguments in Pennsylvania and Michigan ó calling Steinís quest a ďfarceĒ ó and in the latter, the state attorney general has filed to stop the recount effort he says ďabuses the intent of Michigan lawĒ. Trumpís supporters are taking legal action in Wisconsin where a third recount effort is underway. Ö

    Asia Times ^ | December 3, 2016 | Doug Tsuruoka|
    The almost razor-thin margins in battleground states that elected Donald Trump as the next US president have some observers wondering if Asian American voters might have helped to tip the balance for Hillary Clinton if events had taken a slightly different turn. Nowhere is this more apparent than in Michigan, where on November 28, the stateís election board certified Trump as the winner almost three weeks after the contest by two-tenths of a percentage point, or 47.6% to 47.4%. The margin of 10,704 votes was the closest in Michigan history. Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein is pressing for yet...

  • Michigan's Attorney General Just Threw A Massive Wrench Into Jill Stein's Recount

    12/02/2016 11:42:20 AM PST · by UMCRevMom@aol.com · 30 replies
    Jill Stein has been relentlessly pushing for pointless recounts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan - three typically blue states that Trump managed to turn red this year. 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. Trump won the Badger State by 22,000 votes. Stein's next target is Michigan, which Trump won by a narrower margin of just under 11,000 votes. She filed a petition demanding a recount on Wednesday. In response,...

    Michigan's attorney general announced Friday he would file suit to stop a recount requested by Green Party candidate Dr. Jill Stein. "Today I am filing suit to stop @DrJillStein's frivolous, expensive recount request," Bill Schuette, a Republican, wrote on Twitter. The state's top law enforcement official said that he had "filed an emergency motion with the Mich Supreme Court to bypass the Court of Appeals to ensure a timely process." Schuette's office later put out a statement explaining the motion.

    Enough nonsense Michigan attorney general Bill Schuette is surely going to catch heat for this - criticism that heís strictly acting out of partisan concern because heís a Republican. And yes, Schuette is a very partisan Republican and has been one for a long time. And oh yes, he would certainly like to be our next governor. But no matter who he is, his legal argument is awfully solid that there is no valid reason for a recount of the presidential race in Michigan. It would be extremely time-consuming and expensive - and yes, the state would bear a huge...

Like a bad actor that insists on one last curtain call after the audience has headed for the exits, the Green Party nominee seems to stubbornly believe in her relevance even after the election demonstrated its non-existence beyond any doubt. Stein's demand for recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania demonstrates arrogance bordering on parody. Stein didn't lose the election so much as she...

In the certified results, Trump led Michigan by 10,704 votes ó 2,279,543 compared with 2,268,839 for Clinton. Trump hasn't said that he will take the step of contesting the recount, but he has been critical of the effort by Green Party...
