Looks like Jill Stein’s efforts to de-thrown Trump is backfiring on her. Because the Green Party identifies as independent, they find it incredibly insulting that she has partnered up with Hillary. But that isn’t the only offense. Check it out.
The Green Party is rebelling against the recount effort by its presidential candidate Jill Stein because she’s only focusing on states Hillary Clinton lost.
Spearheaded by Green Party Senate Candidate Margaret Flowers, the mutiny declared “while we support electoral reforms, including how the vote is counted, we do not support the current recount being undertaken by Jill Stein.”
“As a candidate, Dr. Stein has the right to call for a recount, however, we urge the [Green Party] to distance itself from any appearance of support for either Democrats or Republicans,” Flowers stated. “We are well aware of the undemocratic actions taken during the primaries by the DNC and the Clinton campaign.”
“Greens cannot be perceived to be allied with such a party.”
She also pointed out that Stein is apparently acting alone without direct help from the Green Party.
“The recount has created confusion about the relationship between the Green and Democratic parties because the states chosen for the recount are only states in which Hillary Clinton lost,” Flowers added. “There were close races in other states such as New Hampshire and Minnesota where Clinton won, but which were not part of the recount.”
