  • Thanks, Jill Stein: Michigan House passes voter-ID bill after vote-fraud hyperbole

    Be careful what you wish for … you just might get it. Jill Stein didn’t get the recount she wanted in Michigan, but she did get the state to take vote-integrity issues seriously. Meeting in its lame-duck session, the state House of Representatives passed a tough voter-ID bill that includes $3 million for funding of free state identification and birth certificates after over 18,000 voters cast ballots without identification in the presidential election: Michigan’s Republican-led House on Wednesday night approved a strict voter identification proposal over strenuous objections from Democrats who argued the plan could disenfranchise properly registered voters.Michigan...
  • Wisconsin Held Hostage (Without Jill Stein taking votes away from Hillary, Trump would have lost)

    Stein has picked up a grand total of 60 votes or roughly $58,000 per vote seeing as she forked over $3.5 million for the recount. 60 x 58,000 = $3.48 mill How much did Trump spend per vote? Trump spent less than $5 per vote, Hillary Clinton's more than $10 per vote, with Trump spending $285.6 million for 59.21 million votes versus $609 million for 59.38 million votes for Clinton, according to data and New York Times vote totals Wednesday ...

    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 Trumps narrow victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton for Michigans 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, didnt have...

The citys Election Board had already refused to let Steins computer experts examine the machines. Judge Abbe F. Fletman wrote in her decision that Stein basically missed...

    Statewide recounts in key 2016 battlegrounds are proceeding in fits and starts -- but doing little to change the math behind Donald Trump's victory. In Wisconsin, one of three states where Green Party candidate Jill Stein has sought a fresh tabulation, the president-elect has even gained on Hillary Clinton. The push for a recount in Pennsylvania, meanwhile, is awaiting a federal court's OK, and a similar effort in Michigan has run into new judicial turbulence. But while Trump narrowly defeated Clinton in all three states, the numbers trickling in look unlikely to call into question the Nov. 8 results. In...

    The Michigan recount finished its first day, and there were already reports that half of Detroits 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 Trumps 10,704 vote margin in Michigan. Clinton received 66 percent of the Wayne County...

    Protect Our Elections, a liberal-leaning group based in Washington, D.C., says more than 160,000 votes in Florida weren't counted during last month's presidential election. The group claims each of those votes matters a great deal because Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton by 112,911 votes in the Sunshine State. Trump won by roughly 1.5 percent, a margin high enough to avoid the state's automatic-recount provisions. But last Friday, Protect Our Elections sued the state to contest the election, possibly throwing President-elect Trump's transition into an even greater state of turmoil. For the past 30 days, failed Green Party candidate Jill Stein...

    Jill Stein is asking for recounts in an effort to nullify the electoral votes of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. Federal law says that presidential recounts must be completed within 35 days after an election. Stein waited until 90 minutes before the Wisconsin deadline for filing a recount petition expired. All the votes have to be certified by December 13 according to a report on Friday. The electors meet on December 19. Wisconsin will almost certainly miss that deadline, since the last recount took more than a month. And that recount was for a state Supreme Court contest where only 1.5...
