BREAKING: Michigan Recount Just Got Jill Stein In HOT WATER – It’s Turned Messy!

Anyone with two brain cells to rub together knew that Jill Stein’s pathetic attempt to maintain relevance in the political realm wasn’t going to go anywhere. The results have actually turned out to be entertaining, if not somewhat boring.

Stein managed to scam $10M out of gullible voters who have no idea that the recounts in question have absolutely no chance of changing the outcome of the election. In fact, they’ve actually found Donald Trump increasing his lead over Clinton in Michigan.

The worst part about this whole recount is the fact that Michigan taxpayers are going to be forced to pay $10-$12M for “particular expenses.”

The Detroit Free Press reported on the issue and had some very interesting news:

he Michigan Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that the Board of State Canvassers never should have allowed a recount requested by Green Party candidate Jill Stein to proceed, because she has no chance to overturn the result of the presidential election in her favor and is not an aggrieved candidate.

The panel ordered the board to “reject the Nov. 30, 2016 petition of candidate Stein that precipitated the current recount process.”

he ruling came out almost simultaneously with a 2-1 order from the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals which upheld U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith’s Monday order that the recount must get under way at noon that day, which it did.

The combined effect of the two rulings appears to set up further court proceedings in front of Goldsmith and the Michigan Republican Party has already filed for another federal hearing.

“The Michigan Court of Appeals ruled in our favor, determining that the petition for recount filed by Dr. Jill Stein should have been denied,” said Ronna Romney McDaniel, chairwoman of the Michigan Republican Party. “Dr. Stein is not an aggrieved candidate as she has no chance of winning the election in Michigan.”

While most of us would prefer to just end things there, they continued with the story:

Michigan Republicans and pro-recount advocates went at it again in federal court this morning, one side pushing for the recount to end and to save taxpayers millions, the other arguing it needs to continue so that voters can know if fraud took place.

U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith, who heard the arguments, said he would issue a written decision. He did not say when.

Two key questions that emerged at the hearing: Is the Michigan recount an issue for the federal court, which has so far let the recount go forward, or the state courts, to decide? And can Green Party candidate Jill Stein — a candidate who has virtually no possibility of winning the presidency — request a recount under state law?

Should there be laws regarding exactly who can ask for a recount? All this is doing is casting doubt on our electoral system and unless there is concrete evidence of voter fraud (which they claim to have, but won’t release), there is no reason to be putting the American population through this sad dog-and-pony show.
