Jill Stein campaign drops recount effort in Pa.
Updated: December 3, 2016 — 7:06 PM EST

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."

[rest of story: http://www.philly.com/philly/news/politics/presidential/20161204_Jill_Stein_campaign_drops_recount_effort_in_Pa_.html ]

-------------
So Jill Stein has collected millions for these recounts (much more than she collected for her campaign), but won't post $1 million for PA. Reinforces the view of some of us skeptics that this was always a money-making scam on her part.

The strategy of some of the backers of this plan was to block electors from Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennslyvania. The recounts were supposed to delay the certification of the winner in each of the 3 states. Then, Trump would be held to 260 electoral votes vs. Hillary at 232 electoral votes. The plotters' hope was that the House would then have to select Trump and the Senate would select Pence as VP, both per the Constitution.

Liberals would then argue that Trump was illegimate b/c he didn't get 270 electoral votes.

The plan, which necessarily would mean disenfranchising the voters of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennslyvania, required that the recounts delay certification in all 3 states. If the recount failed to obtain the delay needed in any one of the states, Trump gets to 270 EVs.

So the plan is busted (more or less - see my caveat/clarification in my next post below), but Jill Stein is flush with cash. Maybe she can buy a nice lakefront house, like Bernie got after he fully endorsed Hillary?

Bernie never wanted to be president either, he was doing it for the money. Watch him write a book and cash in with the stupid impressionable snowflakes.

She should return all the money she took from people because our President is Donald Trump.

Just to clarify, they continue recount efforts in some local parts of PA if local judges approve.

So the headline from the story, which I also used as a headline for the post, is misleading. Still, it seems that the money Stein raised was sufficient to pay the bond the judge asked them to post.
