Jill’s recount campaign has raised over $7 million. But she has stated that they are unable to pay the $1 million bond for a recount in Pennsylvania. So where did that $7 million go? Not only did the money seem to disappear out of thin air, but Jill is constantly asking people to donate. Something isn’t right here. Trump isn’t the one who needs to be investigated, Jill is.
A Green Party-backed campaign will take its fight for a statewide recount of Pennsylvania’s votes in the presidential election to the federal courts after it dropped a case in the state courts.
“We are committed to this fight to protect the civil and voting rights of all Americans,” Jonathan Abady, lead counsel for the recount campaign, said in a statement. “Over the past several days, it has become clear that the barriers to verifying the vote in Pennsylvania are so pervasive and that the state court system is so ill-equipped to address this problem that we must seek federal court intervention.”
The recount campaign, led by Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, cited financial difficulties when deciding to withdraw the case. The court filing described the Green Party-backed voters who filed the case “regular citizens of ordinary means” who cannot afford the $1 million bond ordered by the court by Monday, the Associated Press reported.
Instead, the campaign plans to push for the statewide recount in federal court on Monday, demanding a recount on constitutional grounds.
