The nonsense recount that Green Party Candidate Jill Stein is demanding will begin in Wisconsin Thursday morning, but they’re not going to count all the ballots by hand.
Stein and her group – backed by the Clinton Campaign – were demanding that all votes be counted by hand, but state officials pushed back, saying not only are they not required to do a hand recount, they simply don’t have the time.
In rejecting the demand for a hand count, Dane County Circuit Judge Valerie Bailey-Rihn said: “I follow the law. That’s who I am despite my personal opinions. It’s [the counties’] decision. It’s their discretion. I may disagree with it… but I must follow the law.”
The state has already received a payment of nearly $3.5 million to force the recount and said they will bill her organization for any other costs.
Officials said the recount would begin at 9 a.m. Thursday and that all county-level counting efforts must be completed by 8 p.m. on Dec. 12.
Stein’s campaign expressed disappointment that the state would give counties the option of a hand recount or a machine recount, but said it would press ahead nonetheless.
“Tonight’s ruling will not deter our efforts, and we will continue to work with the Wisconsin Elections Commission to see this recount through,” Stein attorney Matthew D. Brinckerhoff said in a statement to The Washington Post.
Stein is trying to force a recount in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. They have already taken legal action to try and force a recount in Pennsylvania and said they plan to officially ask for a recount in Michigan on Wednesday.
Stein is alleging malfeasance in the election process, although she has provided zero evidence of any fraud or corruption.
Many feel that Stein is trying to make up for being a “spoiler.” In at least two of those states, Hillary Clinton would likely have won if Jill Stein were not on the ballot.
The electors must meet in their respective state capitols on Dec. 19 to cast their votes. If any state is unable to certify their election, their electoral college votes wouldn’t count. Hence – a theory is that by forcing a recount in the states, their electoral college votes wouldn’t count, Trump would lack the 270 vote electoral college majority and he would be further delegitimized when the House had to – for only the second time in the nation’s history – vote for a President Trump.
