Jill Stein raised $7 million to do a recount. The judge wants $1 million bond and that’s even negotiable. But Stein refuses to post it because she’s going to Federal Court (which has no jurisdiction) and dropping the state court case.
I’m calling this a scam. She has the money and she won’t use it. I think she’s scamming us. She’s taking advantage of voters who want a recount to pocket the money. And she’s diverting attention away from the fact that if she had dropped out of the race a month early and not attacked Hillary, Trump wouldn’t be president elect.
(Yes – it’s Hillary’s fault. But Stein put Trump over the top like Nader did in 2000)
The Green Party’s Jill Stein is changing tactics in Pennsylvania, dropping a call for a recount in the state court in order to pursue the effort in federal court. Why? At least in part because it was just too expensive. Even though Stein has raised more than $7 million for her recount effort, the Green Party said that it will not post the $1 million bond required by the court.
“Petitioners are regular citizens of ordinary means,” notes the filing that withdrew the lawsuit filed with the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania. “They cannot afford to post the $1,000,000 bond required by the Court.” The court set the $1 million after lawyers representing President-elect Donald Trump called for a $10 million bond.
Can’t afford it? She raised $7 million. The bond is $1 million. Who want’s to bet she pockets the money!
Liar liar pants on fire!!!
BTW – piece of trivia. I also host BradBlog.com on this same server and the first news of the recount was announced on this server. So I feel I was personally scammed. The traffic even took this server offline for about 15 minutes till I found a way to process the traffic.
