PENNSYLVANIA: Jill Stein Files Recount Demand

Metro reports:

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein filed for a recount of votes Monday in Pennsylvania, one of three battleground states where President-elect Donald Trump won in his Electoral College victory.

A statement released on behalf of Stein circulated on Twitter Monday afternoon. The statement said recounts could begin in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — another state where the candidate has filed — as soon as this week.

“Americans deserve a voting system we can trust,” Stein said in the statement, released by the public relations firm Berlin Rosen. “After a presidential election tarnished by the use of outdated and unreliable machines and accusations of irregularities and hacks, people of all political persuasions are asking if our election results are reliable.”

It continued: “We must recount the votes so we can build trust in our election system. We need to verify the vote in this and every election so that Americans of all parties can be sure we have a fair, secure and accurate voting system,” Stein wrote.

Last week, Stein launched an initiative to raise $7 million to fund the recount fees in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan. As of Monday afternoon, Stein had raised more than $6.2 million, according to a tracker on her campaign website. Per the team’s statement, 137,000 supporters gave an average of $46 per donation.

    Just a few minutes ago, NBC finally called Michigan for Trump

    • Oikos

      Do you know what the margins are?

      • Sam_Handwich

        Trump +10,704

        • Oikos

          Hmm, 5000 dump votes in Wisconsin tossed as fraudulent.

  • Dan Loesch

    Thank You Jill! You are making sure demz Never hold national office again! Please, keep your meaningless recount efforts up. Make dems look like the desperate assholes we all know they are! Didn’t get your way? Rig the system to your favor. Brexiters are trying that to but only gonna delayed the inevitable. Jill is making sure Trump gets 8 years! HNX JILL!

    • Randy Ellicott

      what?

    • Oikos

      If the tables were turned republicans would be crying like the pussies they are about how a recount was needed. Get bent, asshole.

      • Dan Loesch

        Greek Yogurt! The jobless wonder herself! Look at what a fuktard you have shown yourself to be. mommy must be busy working at mcdonalds to babysit you so you sneak on her pc when she is not home.

        • Oikos

          Mommy is dead, fuckstick and you are flagged and blocked. Did I mention? Fuck you, dipshit.

          • Oikos

            If a blocked troll responds does anyone fucking care? And the answer is only the dumb as dirt troll who can’t figure it out.

          • Oikos

            Hahahahahahah. I love when blocked dipshits respond!!!
            Dan Loesch is a pussy and a douche nozzle.

          • PickyPecker

            It seems to not quite grasp the concept of blocking. KILLFILE to the rescue!

          • Treant

            If a blocked troll responds in the forest, did he really fuck a bear?

          • Oikos

            Probably a skunk.

          • Acronym Jim

            A porcupine. That’s why they’re always so frustrated.

        If Trump supporters weren’t psychotic, I would think it’s a waste of time. But, as Dan proves, they are quite unhinged.

  • Todd

    Yeaaaaa ….more Trump mean tweets

  • bkmn

    If I never hear about Jill Stein again it will be too soon.

    • Lazycrockett

      You are gonna get trolled.

      • Oikos

        The troll that is here is just a dumb trumpanzee.

    • Treant

      I tend to agree. I’ll credit her single action here, without having any particular appreciation for Jill herself.

      • If she’s gonna help over throw Trump, I’m in. It’s more than she did this entire election anyways.

    • Gerry Fisher

      Let her finish up with this job, here, and then banish her.

  • Andy McFerrin

    I do believe that a ‘YAAAAASSSS BITCH’ might be in order.

  • Natty Enquirer

    I really wish people would save their money for upcoming civil rights battles. No recount is ever going to ensure “a fair, secure and accurate voting system.”

    • IamM

      One that uncovers a rigged or inaccurate count.

    • agcons

      That exchange needs to be etched in marble – correctly, I might add, with no missing Rs – and placed in a museum.

    • ultragreen

      Trump is already talking about restoring the economic embargo against Cuba. How is that standing with the people of Cuba?

  • zhera

    Part of me wonders if this could be the beginning of a civil war, or something similar. If the election is turned because of this, what happens? Will Trump and GOP accept it? Will the Deplorables accept it?

    These sure are some interesting times we live in!

    • Randy Ellicott

      One thing to remember in all this, (in very rough numbers just to make discussion easy) trump won about half the votes, and about half the country did not vote, so at most the deplorables and the deplorable enablers account for only about a quarter of the country, the rest either voted against him or at least did not vote for him, there is no large movement, other than the disillusioned that is…

      • Oikos

        They are still very dangerous and think they have won some great victory.

        • zhera

          And they can do a lot of damage with the weapons they’ve been hoarding for the last 8 years.

          • GayOldLady

            Some of us have weapons too! 🙂 We just don’t talk about them.

          • Skeptical_Inquirer

            The gun stores sell to anybody.

        • Randy Ellicott

          Oh very true, its just the one piece of information i can take some solace in after this whole debacle, they are outnumbered, if we can get everyone to wake up anyway.

      • Moebym of the Rebel Alliance

        But we don’t get half a president*. That’s what the non-voters and third-party voters don’t get.

        *that was terribly worded. I mean they get a president regardless of whether they voted.

  • Luvvit. We in PA demand quality assurance that our votes counted!

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Although it is pleasing to see this turn of events, I still bring myself to laud Stein personally. She did her part in the rise of Trump, so this seems almost tragic in its irony.

    • Friday

      I can understand trying to mitigate the damage, if she’s anything like a sincere progressive anymore.

    • Ross

      I loath Jill.

      I am thrilled about the recount.

  • Joe, currently deleting trolls

    • zhera

      Shelley’s working hard for the money.

      • Treant

        So hard for it, honey! She works hard for the money so you better treat her right…

        • zhera

          I knew it wouldn’t take long for someone here to catch that. ;P

    • Bill Kine

      Looks like the usual, failing to keep up because she’s to stupid to lock her site so it’s not the easiest site to troll online. Can’t bitch about something that easily fixable. Maybe tell her to stop being a douche and use her IP log in illegal ways to try and shame users. Maybe she stopped doing fucktarded shit like that maybe. The pic is right tho, Joe is a furry useless pussy.

      • Lol, go drink bleach, Nazi.

        • Oikos

          More of these dumb as dirt trolls.

          • PickyPecker

            Cyber monday is bringing them out of the friggin woodwork!

          • Treant

            I guess Welfare checks don’t arrive until the first and they’re jonesing for their fix. Trolling might give ’em a bit of adrenaline.

            Oopsie…what will they do when Trumpy cuts them off the government teat?

          • Oikos

            They are unemployed so have lots of time to do nothing.

          • They’re in their basement talking about how Alpha they all are.

          • Joe in PA

            I’m going to start referring to you as “greek yogurt”. Love that. 🙂

          • Oikos

            Please don’t. Oikos means hearth, home and family in Greek, not yogurt.

          • Joe in PA

            Oh all right…you just take the fun out of everything dangit. 🙂

          • Oikos

            Besides, I’m mostly German with a sprinkling of English, Irish and Arabic.

          • Joe in PA

            Me too, but I wish I had some of that nifty Arab swarthy-ness to offset my Irish/Swedish pasty whiteness. 😉

          • Oikos

            A sibling did the Ancestry DNA thing and we were surprised to see that show up. I do tan really well. 😉

          • GayOldLady

            trumpy is going to get them a job very, very soon. A bigly job, two or three of them at $7.25.

          • Oikos

            Cleaning toilets at the dump tower. They have to buy their own toilet brushes cause murica.

          • ultragreen

            They’ll have to buy their own brushes and janitorial outfits from Trump cause he wants ever more profits.

          • ultragreen

            Or less than that if Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress decide to eliminate the minimum wage.

      • Oikos

        Desperate, dumb troll is blocked.

        • Oikos

          and stupid troll that is blocked replies, proving its parents were siblings and it has a micropenis..

    • Earl

      He’s gonna need another cat…

      • Bared Bear

        Don’t let Trump near it.

        • Earl

          Never. My pussy’s not been molested, and he’s not gonna be.

    • ultragreen

      That’s the troll cat! Probably the guilty culprit.

    • Jeffrey

      I don’t know if anyone else has noticed, but on FB the trolls have gotten incredibly emboldened lately. Seems like any public news story with any liberal bent is beset with hate trolls. There was one on the writing page I follow that did an article on Ellen getting the medal and the most hateful comments spilled all over the page. Not average readers of the page, just nuts that came out of nowhere. Ive seen that in several places lately. They are attacking Converse right now because Pete Davidson is a spokesman and he is a liberal and apparently said something anti Trump on SNL.

      • I’ve notice. They’re also organizing mass reporting in order to exploit FB’s banning mechanism. https://www.rawstory.com/2016/11/facebook-bans-retired-navy-officer-for-criticizing-actual-fcking-nazis/

        I’ve seen them attempt to troll (badly) several science and academic pages while successfully trolling meme pages.

        • Jeffrey

          I got banned this morning.

          • Janice Rael

            Facebook Jail sucks. You can try to appeal your ban. The only times I’ve been banned is when I was “debating” racists in threads on Facebook. They kept reporting me as a fake name, and I had to submit 2 forms of state ID to FB on 3 different occasions to regain control of my account.

            I don’t “debate” racists any more.

    • Gerry Fisher

      Joe’s got rhythm!

  • HZ81

    Jill, just file and dispense with the Twittering. Thanks!

    • ultragreen

      Feedback to the public is important after she files a recount request. It counteracts the earlier accusations of fraud (even made by some people here). She is still raising money for Michigan.

      • HZ81

        I’m talking about her unique “thoughts” but thanks.

    OT: Delta Bans Trump Supporter Who Ranted At ‘Hillary Bitches’ On Flight

    http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/delta-bans-trump-supporter-viral-video-rant

    About Time!!!!

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      This little dino would have banned him in flight and shown him the rear door.

      • GayOldLady

        This old woman would have been up in his face and gotten us both thrown off, but it would have been so worth it.

      • GayOldLady

        An in flight ejection? Don’t forget to tell him “watch your first step” when you show him the door.

        • Joe in PA

          I had an in-flight ejection once…oh wait…never mind.

      • TrollopeReader

        make him clean the blue-rooms first !!

    • Jerry Kott

      Was he charged? I doubt if this creature flies very often.

      • GayOldLady

        Nope, the flight attendants didn’t see it, but fortunately it was caught on video, so he’s banned from Delta forever.

        • Jerry Kott

          I will explore more. The video should be enough documentation to file some charges. I bet if it was a Hillary supporters, he would have been escorted off the jet and charged. I live in the Allentown region where this creature landed. These creatures are everywhere and are chummy with the Police.

  • Oikos

    Thanks for cleaning up the trash, Joe. I’m guessing it is all the same troll.

    • JoeMyGod

      Yep. It’s the same self-hating homocon using an IP cloaker.

      • If that homocon is still here I have a message for him

      • justme

        Too bad you couldn’t post his home town and state..
        Put a little scare into the trolls who think they are so hidden from such things..

        • Joe in PA

          if [s]he is using an ip cloaker, I suspect you can’t. ;(

  • Lazycrockett

    Well share this with all of your “Drumpf will bring back jobs” friends and relatives.

  • Cuberly

    OT: Another Elector says, HELL no!

    https://twitter.com/LPDah/status/803331148826886144

    • Oikos

      Instead of resigning he should have voted for someone else.

      • Cuberly

        He says he doesn’t want to be a “faithless” elector. BTW-he’s deep in the religio-woo-woo.

        • Oikos

          So in other words, batshit crazy.

          • Cuberly

            Yep, if Cruz was the pres elect my guess is he’d be giddy.

    • Gerry Fisher

      Then attend and vote for Hillary. This “I can’t stand Trump” while doing nothing to prevent his ascendancy is damn frustrating.

      • Cuberly

        From this article and another one I read it sounds like he’s a hyper-evangelical. I don’t think Hillz even registers as an option. That sorta makes it even sadder really.

  • ultragreen

    Stein needs another $700,000 to meet the fund-raising goal for Michigan. This is probably the state that is most likely to flip.

  • Jeffg166

    She’s going to give the Donald a stroke if she keeps this up.

    • Bared Bear

      Donald would say that she’s too old to give him a stroke.

      • Piona O.

        Donald doesn’t need Jill for a stroke. That’s what Ivanka’s for.

  • Derrick Johns

    I certainly love Jill Stein. I’d never really thought about her during the campaign.
    Well, everybody in the media tells us it aint gonna’ work, but atleast….well, Stein stood up to the right-wing deplorables.

    Wouldn’t it be hilarious if all those right-wing nuts that Donald the Orange Blob has proposed for his his cabinet had to be told…oh, never mind. YOu may all go home now.

    Thank you, Jill Stein

    • Dave Babler

      Let’s be real, she feels bad for being a spoiler.

  • andrew

    Gracefully exit the stage Stein, your show is over. A whopping 1% of the voters thought you should be POTUS.

    • Ross

      Jill is not the point.

      The recount is.

      • andrew

        The recount is pointless.

        • CaliforniaDude

          it might expose hacking or fraud…..against Trump and the GOP…..so it is not pointless….it is an AUDIT too…big difference
