HA! Jill Stein’s recount just got TERRIBLE news…

Jill Stein’s effort for a recount keeps taking increasingly bizarre turns. As many of you are aware, the former Green Party presidential candidate has raised millions of dollars to fund a recount in key swing states that tilted the election towards Donald Trump.

The amount of money she claims to need has continuously been revised upward, and she went on record stating that any funds not used would be ending up in the pockets of the Green Party for future campaigns and recruitment. That gave the impression there’s more for her to gain from the recount than Hillary Clinton, and that was confirmed in Stein’s reaction to the Clinton camp being on board with the recount. She sent off a tirade of tweets directed at Hillary, the woman who we’re supposed to believe her recount is going to help.

After all that, the epic fail that is #Recount2016 has managed to get even more embarrassing, as Stein has already missed a deadline for one of the swing states.

As the Washington Examiner reported: Stein missed Pennsylvania’s deadline to file for a voter-initiated recount. That blown deadline is a huge blow for Democrats who have pinned their hopes on recounts in the Keystone State, Michigan and Wisconsin.

“According to Wanda Murren, spokeswoman for the Pennsylvania Department of State,” the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Monday, “the deadline for a voter-initiated recount was Monday, Nov. 21.”

Allied with Clinton’s camp, Stein can still mount a legal challenge. While the chances of litigation are uncertain, the vote tally is clear. Trump beat Clinton in Pennsylvania, a feat not accomplished by a Republican since Ronald Reagan in 1984.

While it wasn’t a landslide, it wasn’t close either. Trump carried the state with 70,000 votes, a significant margin that will be hard to overcome. And even if Stein manages a recount in Pennsylvania, nothing’s guaranteed. Of the thousands of statewide races in the last 15 years, only 27 have been decided by recounts and only three challengers have pulled off an upset.

It’s like the anti-Trump crowd is cycling through the five stages of grief.


What will the crazies come up with next? We’ll stay tuned….
