Campaign Shifts Pennsylvania Recount Effort From State To Federal Court

Lawyers for the presidential campaign of Green Party candidate Jill Stein have changed tactics in their legal effort to force a recount of the vote in Pennsylvania, shifting their case from the state to federal level. The campaign will now seek an emergency federal-court order on Monday asking for a recount on constitutional grounds, according to the Associated Press, after having dropping their case in the state courts on Saturday. It appears the change is due to Pennsylvania setting a $1 million bond, due Monday, to proceed with the recount. Stein rejected that requirement in a statement released late Saturday:


The judge’s outrageous demand that voters pay such an exorbitant figure is a shameful, unacceptable barrier to democratic participation. This is yet another sign that Pennsylvania’s antiquated election law is stacked against voters. By demanding a $1 million bond from voters yesterday, the court made clear it has no interest in giving a fair hearing to these voters’ legitimate concerns over the accuracy, security and fairness of an election tainted by suspicion.


As Politico points out, the previous recount-cost estimate by state officials was $500,000. Stein has raised about $6.8 million for her three-state recount campaign, but that’s a few million dollars short of what the Stein camp has said it will need to pay for the effort. In other words, it’s not clear if the Stein campaign could have afforded the $1 million bond in Pennsylvania should they have been willing to pay it.


As justification for the move to federal court, Stein campaign lawyer Jonathan Abady insisted that “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.”

President Obama, Russia Hacked, WikiLeaks Leaked, The FBI Shrilled, Republican Governors Suppressed The Votes, Committed Voter Fraud And Your Silence Is Threatening America’s Democracy! Why The Silence Mr. President?

President Obama you have been an excellent President and those of us that supports you really loves you and care about you because you are a decent caring human being and have literally saved America from the George W Bush, Dick Cheney and the Republican Congress Chaos committed from 2001 through 2008, so we stand with you.


However, we know that you are fully cognizant that Republican Governors Suppressed The Votes and Committed Fraud and Donald Trump’s apparent victory is a result of Republican and Trump’s total dishonesty. What is most difficult for us to comprehend is why you have taken to “total silence” and even stated that the Election was fair?


We are also aware that you do not like confrontation, but Mr. President, this is not just about you; it is about America, The American People and the World. Apart from the Recount under way by the Third Party and Secretary Clinton Campaign that has joined in the Recount, you have the loudest voice.


Mr. Trump’s assertion that “Millions of People Voted Illegally” give you the unequivocal right to actually order an Audit of Trump’s claim as ridiculous as it may be, but Trump’s stupidity opens the door for you to act and act now you must.


Mr. President, your failure to do nothing isn’t going to sit well on the pages of History and you may or may not be aware of this, however, you are too an intelligent of a man, not to know this. And, your intervention to preserve our Democracy even after the Recount Donald Trump does become President, the pages of History will at least say, “President Obama didn’t buckle under Republican Pressure.” If you don’t, the statement will be the opposite, “you buckled.”


We stand with Secretary Hillary Clinton now and forever in this mortal world and beyond. Hillary Clinton has spent her entire adult life doing what is best for America and the world and she deserves the best from us and most certainly the best from you. It is your call!
