Skip to comments.(Bill Some of it Later? Legal?) Wisconsin Officials Receive Recount Payment From Jill Stein
Posted on 12/02/2016 12:58:35 PM PST by Freedom of Speech Wins
The Wisconsin Elections Commission announced that it has received the required payment from Jill Stein to start the presidential recount in the state later this week.
The former Green Party presidential candidate previously submitted a petition for a recount in Wisconsin, and she paid the required $3,499,689 set by the commission via bank wire transfer, according to the Wisconsin Elections Commission.
The Wisconsin Elections Commission announced that amount as the required fee to start the recount process, but in its announcement today it noted that "there was an error in adding up figures" from the state's 72 county clerks, so the actual total is $3,898,340. However, it is not requiring Stein to pay that new total "at this time." Instead, the elections commission said it will wait until the actual costs are reported and either bill Stein for any excess charges or return any unused funds.

Get it in advance or you’ll never get it.
Time is of the essence, or Wisconsin will miss the deadline for submitting its vote to the electoral College, and Trump will lose our 10 votes. They have to get started right away.
Actually, the bank transfer from Nigeria was for $4.2 million and they said that it’s ok to keep the difference for their trouble.
That’s got to be b/s.
Baloney. If it was that easy, it would happen all the time and every presidential election would end with 0 electoral votes for each candidate.
Oh, okay then.
I had thought they were going to offer a half dozen 20 minute speeches from Hillary, a few million in Cali High Speed Rail bonds, and some really hot tips for the cattle futures market.
No no no ... They would like an immediate refund for the overpayment ... before their check clears. Just give them your bank routing info and they will take care of it from their end.
Heh. They know they’ve got a live one. Just like the Nigerian price’s attorney, who always needs “just one more fee” that’s not quite enough to put you off.
I read the statute. She is supposed to pay the initial estimate, which is subject to change. If the estimate was over, she gets a refund of the excess. If under, she has 30 days to pay.
They dont lose votes in the EC.
Why is this stuff being passed around as a fact?
Because -- pathetic as this may sound -- there are now more conspiracy nuts on FreeRepublic than anywhere else on the internet.
Wisconsin receives a 3.5 million dollar donation from American taxpayers, Jill Stein, agent.
In the Wisconsin State Journal, this question and answer was given:
Question: What happens if the recount isn't completed by then?
Answer: If the recount is certified by Dec. 13, the state's results are guaranteed under federal law to direct which candidate electors vote for on Dec. 19. After Dec. 13, Congress could vote to choose which candidate gets Wisconsin's votes, with the governor breaking any tie between the House and Senate.
I think the Congress will let Wisconsin's original 10 electoral votes stand.
