Even in traditionally blue state Michigan, Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein had voters seeing red.
Some taxpayers were furious at her attempt to waste their money in a pointless recount. Lawmakers were livid that she’s telling the state how to handle its business. And voters really just want her to suck it up and move on.
President-elect Donald Trump’s attorneys filed an objection to the recount on Thursday with the Michigan Bureau of Elections, as reported by Politico. On Friday, the State Board of Canvassers deadlocked 2-2 on the matter, prompting swift legal responses from both Trump and Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette.
Trump’s lawsuit requested review by the State Court of Appeals, and Schuette’s lawsuit asked for intervention by the Michigan Supreme Court. Both cited a complete lack of evidence of fraud or error.
Unless the courts intervene by Tuesday, the recount could begin as soon as Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times reported.
“The recount in Michigan, which has been driven by an outpouring of grassroots support in the state, will go forward,” Stein said.
Dr. Stein is living in another world. You know, one where she isn’t spending her own money.
Here in Michigan, you’d be hard pressed to find a soul who supports a recount. Win or lose, we’re pretty impressed with the integrity of our election system, and we no more appreciate Jill Stein telling us what we need than we did when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took us for granted.
CNN‘s Anderson Cooper also questioned Stein’s motives and received a response as asinine as the recount itself.
“But without having the evidence, aren’t you actually contributing, perhaps unfairly, to that lack of confidence in the system itself?” Cooper asked Stein.
“What we have are predictors that if tampering took place, it would be most likely to be discovered in the three states where we are looking. Unless we actually look, we would never know,” she said.
Kind of like tearing down your house just in case there’s a dead mouse under it. You never know unless you look.
