    Pennsylvania Republicans are livid with the secretary of state´s office for releasing not only the names of the state´s electors, but also their home addresses and phone numbers. The GOP is calling the move "unprecedented." Going by recent history, it certainly is. Previously, the secretary of state´s office would release the names and home counties of electors. Now all of a sudden, Democratic Secretary of State Pedro A. Cortés discovered a way to release the personal contact information of electors, despite the fact the state had never done so previously. Cortés´s office claims they were just following the law on
  • Green Party Sad They Have To Pay For a Recount Pennsylvania

    12/05/2016 9:34:11 AM PST · by tekrat · 34 replies
    Whats going on in Pennsylvania is that there is a certain margin of votes that have to be reached before a recount is triggered. Pennsylvania has not hit that level. So for there to be a recount the Green Party would have to put up a $1,000,000 dollars bond for the labor in the event the election results do not change for the winning candidate. The Green Party does not want to put up the money. So they're filing a federal lawsuit to try to force a recount for free.  Even though it cost them to file the suit. In...

    Meanwhile, out-of-money Stein hopes federal courts will order equally pointless Pennsylvania recount At this rate, maybe we should have a recount in California too. Trump might pick up an extra 55 electoral votes. Maybe he won the meaningless national popular vote after all. The Wisconsin recount is not exactly yielding the results the Hillary campaign was hoping for when they hid in the corner and sent errand girl Jill Stein to go complain to the lunch room monitor. It turns out the only thing changing is the side of Trump’s margin of victory. It’s growing

    The Green Party shifted strategy in its recount effort Saturday, saying it will pursue a statewide effort in Pennsylvania in federal rather than state court. The move came hours after the Green Party dropped its state court case seeking a recount in the battleground state, which narrowly voted for Trump.

"Make no mistake — the Stein campaign will continue to fight for a statewide recount in Pennsylvania," attorney Jonathan Abady said in the statement late...

    With recount effort now underway in the three razor-tight swing states of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, it turns out Hillary Clinton has already moved closer to winning those states than had originally been announced. In the past two weeks Michigan and Wisconsin have both voluntarily revised the size of Donald Trump’s “win” downward by thousands of votes each. And now Pennsylvania has shrunk the size of Trump’s win by tens of thousands of votes. It’s important to understand that these revisions have been made by the states before the recounts even got underway. These shifts in the vote totals have...

They cannot afford to post the $1,000,000 bond required by the court,” read a filing submitted in the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania. On Twitter, she later added: “#Recount2016 is so expensive because of elected leaders who have refused to invest in a 21st-century voting system.”

    Pennsylvania court on Saturday accepted the Green Party’s request to end its case seeking a statewide recount — a move that ends any remaining doubt, however slight, about whether Donald Trump is the victor in the 2016 presidential race. Most — including Hillary Clinton’s campaign — expected Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein’s recount efforts in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin not to change the result in any of those states. The reality, however, was that the election results would not have changed unless the recounts shifted the states to Clinton in all of those states. With Pennsylvania off the table,...

Lawyers for Trump’s campaign have entered arguments in Pennsylvania and Michigan — calling Stein’s quest a “farce” — and in the latter, the state attorney general has filed to stop the recount effort he says “abuses the intent of Michigan law”.

Stein has questioned the integrity of votes cast in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan, but she hasn't presented any proof of wrongdoing. She's already raised more than $5 million for the recount. Election officials in Berks County moved forward Thursday and certified the votes that were cast in the election. "The election results are the election results," said Berks County Commissioner Kevin Barnhardt. Not everyone, however, is ready to accept them. "With the recount being done now, and...

The arguments involved are technical, and rely on a close reading of the timeline according to which votes are counted and challenges may be permitted. But in essence, Republicans argue that those seeking the recount were in the wrong place...

    Though Hillary Clinton lost Pennsylvania by a smaller margin than reported on election night, the race still isn’t close enough to trigger an automatic statewide recount of the votes, according to new figures. Nearly three weeks after the election, the City of Philadelphia has finished counting votes, including absentee and provisional ballots. Those totals significantly cut Clinton’s loss in Pennsylvania to President-elect Donald Trump, who amassed a mere 46,000 votes more than the Democratic nominee. More than five million people across the state voted in this election. That’s a difference of about 0.8 percent. In Pennsylvania, votes must be recounted...

    I don't know if this means anything in light of the PA State Department's announcement that Stein missed the deadline. But this Fox29 Philly tweet was posted to twitter at 1:33pm today. Can anybody who's knowledgeable explain what this means, if it means anything?

    Green Party's Jill Stein needed thousands of volunteers to help with a voter-initiated recount of Pennsylvania's election results. But, officials are not seeing it. In a video Sunday, Stein asked volunteers to print, complete and get notarized affidavits in an attempt to force an election recount in Pennsylvania. Election officials from around the state said they had received some calls about affidavits but not the thousands Stein needs. While Stein said volunteers were needed to submit their documentation by Monday, Wanda Murren, spokeswoman for the Pennsylvania Department of State, has said the deadline for a voter-initiated recount was Nov. 21....

    Updated 5:30 p.m. — As of close of business on Monday, the Philadelphia Board of Elections had received petitions from 74 (out of more than 1,600) divisions. Updated 3:45 p.m. — Jill Stein officially filed a lawsuit in a bid to force all of Pennsylvania’s votes to be recounted. Jill Stein’s effort to recount presidential votes in three swing states already appears to be sputtering in Philadelphia. While Stein, a former presidential candidate, has raised millions of dollars and filed for a recount in Wisconsin, the process in Pennsylvania is much more complicated. Candidates cannot file for a recount themselves....

    JANDER RESEARCH ^ | 28 NOVEMBER 2016 | REN JANDER, J.D.
    Everything you've been reading about a possible recount of the 2016 Presidential Election in Pennsylvania is wrong. There will be no "recount" in Pennsylvania. Book that. It is not speculation. It is legal fact. The broad spectrum of analysis from the blogosphere, Facebook and Twitter is pathetic. Seeing non-lawyer journalists mangle complicated election statutes so brazenly is not only sad but dangerous. It's giving an emotionally triggered part of the electorate false hope. And it simultaneously creates conditions for the destabilization of the nation when hyper-emotional election expectations are thwarted, as they most certainly will be. As for Jill Stein's...

    HARRISBURG — Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein on Monday continued her campaign to contest the election results in three battleground states, filing suit in Pennsylvania seeking a statewide recount. Legal papers filed in Commonwealth Court by a lawyer for Stein’s campaign contend the Nov. 8 election was “illegal” and the results inaccurate based on research suggesting there might have been irregularities with electronic voting machines, among other evidence. “Petitioners have grave concerns about the integrity of electronic voting machines used in their districts,” the suit stated. Though Monday’s petition was filed by 100 Pennsylvania voters, as required by...

    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." Allied with Clinton's camp,...
