Recount Me Out
For some reason third-party candidate (I know, right?) Jill Stein is raising significant money to challenge the election results in Wisconsin; and if she raises even more she will challenge the results in Pennsylvania and Michigan, as well.
I wonder why.
No doubt there was voter fraud. Of course there was.
Just as in the most healthy person some cancerous cells can be found, even in the most fair election there will always be found some voting irregularities.
Maybe she really does think she can overturn the results of the election and Hillary can be rightfully sworn in as our next president.
But I doubt it. Never has such a large margin of victory, even as small as it was, ever been overcome by a recount.
No, I’m pretty sure she isn’t doing this to overturn the election…
And Hillary’s camp, even though it has joined in on the recount party, late of course, has said there is no way the results can overturned.
My guess is she, Stein, is doing this as a surefire way to build name recognition for herself and her party.
Hey, 2020, even though it will seem like ages because of the Trump effect, is only four short years away.
And, based on how much money she has raised for the recount and the level of coverage she is receiving because of it, her subversive platform-building strategy seems to be working.
Well, at least I’m blogging about it anyway…
I don’t even want to think about what an overturned Trump election would look like. It is my estimation, as ugly as the election was, we haven’t seen the level of ugly something as rupturing as an overturned election would bring about.
Well, I guess I don’t want to think about what an unoverturned Trump election will look like either.
