What a complete waste of time and money.
At this point, it probably wouldn’t surprise anyone if donors to Stein’s recount effort abandon the Green Party and riot in the streets against her.
Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein discontinued her statewide recount effort in Pennsylvania Saturday afternoon after a Commonwealth Court judge mandated the campaign post a $1 million bond to press on with its challenge.
In court documents filed shortly before 5 p.m., an attorney for the Stein campaign wrote, “Petitioners are regular citizens of ordinary means. They cannot afford to post the $1,000,000 bond required by the Court.”
The abrupt halt to the campaign’s effort comes less than one week after Stein filed a recount petition in Commonwealth Court, contending the Nov. 8 election was “illegal” and the results inaccurate. Citing research from computer scientists suggesting possible irregularities with electronic voting machines, Stein had hoped a recount in Pennsylvania – as well as Wisconsin and Michigan – could overturn the results in three key swing states that sealed President-elect Donald Trump’s win.
