So Green Party micro-scale drama artiste and nobody, Jill Stein, has capitalized on a report by New York magazine that a convenient convergence of computer scientists and election lawyers held a conference call with John (“Molesta”) Podesta on November 17 to plead their case that Russian hackers possibly distorted the election results in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, states that saw Hillary Clinton lose by thin margins. The Clinton campaign, considering the narrow losses, was mum in response, and has been mum since election night.
For all their hysterical ruckus and self-important posturing and despite Hillary’s reported meltdowns, the Clinton campaign has been mysteriously restrained in response to any possible “irregularities” in the voting results.
the activists held a conference call with Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and campaign general counsel Marc Elias to make their case, according to a source briefed on the call. The academics presented findings showing that in Wisconsin, Clinton received 7 percent fewer votes in counties that relied on electronic-voting machines compared with counties that used optical scanners and paper ballots. Based on this statistical analysis, Clinton may have been denied as many as 30,000 votes; she lost Wisconsin by 27,000. While it’s important to note the group has not found proof of hacking or manipulation, they are arguing to the campaign that the suspicious pattern merits an independent review — especially in light of the fact that the Obama White House has accused the Russian government of hacking the Democratic National Committee.
This, of course, did not stop Jill Stein from pursuing her own little ulterior and profitable path to riches.
Jill Stein has raised enough money for recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania after experts said it was possible that hackers had artificially lowered Hillary Clinton’s counts there.
Stein started the fund-raiser on her website on Wednesday, saying that she needed to raise $2million by Friday – but broke that within hours.
She has now raised the necessary funds for the filing fees in all three states, and announced on Thursday that the recount would be moving forward in Wisconsin.
Stein promised to use the money – which was initially set at $2million – to pay for recounts in the three states.
On Thursday morning, the target was increased again to $4.5millon.
The campaign anticipates eventually needing $6 million to $7 million to cover attorney fees and statewide recount observation costs.
The target keeps growing and the mysterious donations prompt the tally inflation to expand dubiously in response.
Hillary Clinton is not pursing this path, and the Democratic Party has not signaled it intends to do so.
The only people raising a ruckus are the snowflakes congregated in teary safe zones across the country and Jill Stein who barely raised enough money during her campaign to buy a round of drinks at Chili’s for her staff. I would conjecture that a recount and detailed parsing of election results could easily implicate Democratic election malfeasance. Forget the evil Russians. That knife cuts both ways. Such a move could open up a grand old stinky jar of worms that snakes its tendrils across the rest of the country. Hillary’s dubious history surely is one factor that inhibits her and her backers from creating a spotlight-attracting ruckus. I suspect Hillary is happy to lay low and burrow herself deeply under those dank rocks until the internet snooping dies down complacently once Donald Trump recites his Presidential oath on January 20.
And Jill Stein?
Her scam is on and the dollars continue flooding in. From where, we don’t know, and we can only ponder. But the money is coming in, massively. Four million dollars in less than a day…and on a Thanksgiving/Thanksgiving’s Eve at that. I guess Jill Stein’s politically expedient good deeds strike people as much more important than that turkey sitting in the oven.
