Jill Stein Drops Pennsylvania Recount Case, Blames Lack Of Funds
Jill Stein Drops Pennsylvania Recount Case, Blames Lack Of Funds

<p>Following <a href="http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-12-03/trumps-lead-pa-shrinks-22000-votes-stein-seeks-statewide-recount">disappointing results from the initial recount efforts in Pennsylvania</a>, <a href="http://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2016/12/03/green-party-drops-statewide-pennsylvania-recount/">CBS reports</a> Jill Stein's Green Party is<strong> dropping its court case seeking a statewide recount of Pennsylvania</strong>&rsquo;s Nov. 8 presidential election, <strong>blaming a lack of funds</strong>.</p>
<p>As we noted earlier, according to <span style="color: #3366ff;"><em><a href="http://www.phillyvoice.com/trumps-lead-in-pennsylvania-is-shrinking-and-philly-recount-not-in-yet/" style="color: #3366ff;">Philly Voice</a></em></span>, an updated count Friday by state election officials shows Trump&rsquo;s lead over Democrat Hillary Clinton has <strong>shrunk from 71,000 to 49,000. </strong>If this new&nbsp;number&nbsp;is accurate,&nbsp;Trump&rsquo;s lead is at 0.8 percent, down from more than 1 percent. <strong>That is still shy of Pennsylvania&rsquo;s 0.5 percent trigger for an automatic statewide recount.</strong></p>
<p><strong>On Monday, Jill Stein of the Green Party&nbsp;filed a lawsuit in Pennsylvania seeking a statewide recount of presidential votes</strong> in a continuation of her mission to contest the election results in three key voting states.</p>
<p><u><strong>But now</strong></u>, wanted to explore whether voting machines and systems had been hacked and the election result manipulated, <a href="http://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2016/12/03/green-party-drops-statewide-pennsylvania-recount/">as CBS reports</a>, <strong>The Green Party is dropping its case...</strong></p>
<blockquote><div class="quote_start"><div></div></div><div class="quote_end"><div></div></div><p>The decision came Saturday,<strong> two days before a court hearing in the case. </strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Lawyers for the Green Party-backed voters who filed the case <span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>say they can&rsquo;t afford the $1 million bond ordered by the court by Monday</strong></span> at 5 p.m.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>However, <strong>Green Party-backed efforts to analyze election software in scattered precincts are continuing.</strong></p>
</blockquote>
<p>Full statement...</p>
<p><a href="http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user3303/imageroot/2016/12/02/20161203_PA.jpg"><img height="502" src="http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user3303/imageroot/2016/12/02/20161203_PA_0.jpg" width="600" /></a></p>
<p>According to a statement, Stein plans to hold a news conference about the recount effort Monday morning outside Trump Tower in New York City.</p>
<blockquote><div class="quote_start"><div></div></div><div class="quote_end"><div></div></div><p><em><strong>&quot;The judge's outrageous demand that voters pay such an exorbitant figure is a shameful, unacceptable barrier to democratic participation,&quot;</strong></em></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong><em>&quot;This is yet another sign that Pennsylvania's antiquated election law is stacked against voters.&quot;</em></strong></p>
</blockquote>
<p>A <strong>statement from the Pennsylvania GOP</strong> sent Saturday night read, in part:</p>
<blockquote><div class="quote_start"><div></div></div><div class="quote_end"><div></div></div><p>&ldquo;The filing of a discontinuance of the Election Contest by Jill Stein&rsquo;s petitioners tonight is a <strong>recognition that their Election Contest was completely without merit, and meant solely for purposes to delay the Electoral College vote in Pennsylvania for President-Elect Trump</strong>&hellip;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Candidate Jill Stein&rsquo;s allegations <strong>created the false allusion that some unidentified foreign government hacked our state&rsquo;s voting systems when absolutely no such proof existed</strong>.&nbsp; We believe that she always knew that she had no such proof.&rdquo;</p>
</blockquote>
<p>So did Stein really spend all the $6 million-plus she raised or was the decision made to save the scammed millions instead of pressing ahead with a futile unwarranted recount?</p>
