After Trump won the 2016 presidential election, Democrats were furious. Some chose to riot in the streets, but others chose to outright question the results. Jill Stein, the 2016 Green Party candidate, has called for a recount in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan.
When asked about a potential hacking of voting machines, commission spokesperson Reid Magney said there was, “No evidence of hacking,” as per Allen B. West.
Jill Stein was essentially irrelevant during election season. Somehow, she has now raised more than her entire presidential campaign could for a recount in Wisconsin. Her total funds for this are $6 million.
Stein filed a petition on Friday, asking the state to recount its votes because while there was no evidence of a cyber attack, Jill Stein has a hunch that there was—probably because she didn’t like the results.
Despite lecturing Donald Trump on accepting the election results, Clinton has “joined” Stein’s recount efforts because she does not like the results. I believe this is merely a fundraising gimmick on Stein’s part, and that Clinton has latched onto it out of sheer desperation.
The commission that monitors the voting machines put out a statement saying that it routinely audits the performance of its machines. The commission’s machines must have an error rate of no more than 1 in 500,000.
Since 2006, the commission has not found one machine with an error. Obviously, this is a waste of time and money. These pecuniary interests are likely why Trump has rightly called this whole recount effort a scam.
Stein is merely using this opportunity to gain the money and press attention she could not get during the presidential campaign itself. Most people did not even know who she was until she asked for a recount.
Now, she gets to take in massive donations that she will likely give to her party members and campaign employees. Wow. If I had voted for Stein, in some alternate universe, I would be ashamed right now. Stein will lose the little support she has over this effort.
By participating in the recount effort, Clinton has made herself into the dictionary definition of hypocrisy. She lectured Trump on respecting the results of the election, and here she is flip-flopping on that issue just like she did with gay marriage.
Jill Stein should call for an end to her recount efforts so that we can finally begin to heal after such a divisive election. It is time for us to come together as Americans so that we can defeat ISIS and get this economy moving again.
