Clinton Plan to Join Recount Draws ’Sore Loser’ Jibe from Trump
Hillary Clinton’s campaign lawyer announced plans to participate in vote recounts of Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan if they take place, yet doesn’t expect to overturn the election of Donald Trump as president.
Of course, the Clinton camp is not challenging the election result or filing for a recount of votes in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. It’s Green Party candidate Jill Stein (who got, what, less than 1% of the popular vote?). Her motives must be purely altruistic.
If Green Party candidate Jill Stein initiates recounts in all of those states as she intends, the Clinton campaign “will participate in order to ensure the process proceeds in a manner that is fair to all sides,” lawyer Marc Elias said Saturday in a post on the blogging website Medium.com…
About Jill Stein’s financing – well, I don’t know where her 7 million dollar financing is coming from. That’s what it will cost to fund the recounts. Right now she’s already sitting on 5.7 million dollars that came in from (you-fill-in-the-blank) .
Remember when Republican incumbent Norman Coleman won that Minnesota Senate seat back there a few years by more than 700 votes? And Democrat Al Franken asked for a recount? Sure you do. It was in 2008.
Franken ended up winning by a little more than 300 votes. You remember – when dozens of uncounted ballots magically materialized from the trunks of cars or from back rooms in the polling places? And the ballots were time-stamped two days before the election? When more than a thousand convicted felons were illegally allowed to vote – and they magically voted for – Al Franken?
So, here we go again. Hold onto your pants. It’s re-count time.
Ann Coulter says that Democrats always win recounts. I wonder why she would say that.
We’ll see if she’s right.
