Jill Stein To Wisconsin: You Rejected My Hand Recount Request, So I'm Going to Sue You

Well, the Wisconsin recount is going ahead as planned, but Green Party candidate Jill Stein isn’t happy since they rejected counting the ballots by hand. After being informed of the process, Stein filed a lawsuit. She also filed a lawsuit to challenges the results in Pennsylvania after it was discovered that the deadline for a voter-initiated recount was November 21. Observers, analyst, and pundits, even those on the ground who are involved in this circus note that it’s highly unlikely that anything will be changed other than the Green Party fundraising millions off the shock, grief, and desperation of liberals. There is zero evidence that any voter hacking occurred during the election, even the Obama administration has said that the Department of Homeland Security saw no spike in cyber activity that would suggest hacking from an outside source on election night (via Milwaukee Journal Sentinel):

The Wisconsin Elections Commission set a timetable Monday for a recount of the presidential election but rejected a request to require a count by hand made by Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who quickly responded that she would sue.

Also Monday, Stein filed a lawsuit in Pennsylvania to force a recount there and her supporters began filing recount requests at the precinct level there. Stein — who received just a tiny piece of the vote —also plans to ask for a recount in Michigan on Wednesday.

Unless Stein wins her lawsuit in Dane County Circuit Court, officials in each of Wisconsin’s 72 counties would decide on their own whether to do their recounts by hand. That could mean some counties perform recounts by machine and some by hand.

Citing the results of a 2011 statewide recount that changed only 300 votes, Elections Commission chairman Mark Thomsen, a Democrat, said this presidential recount is very unlikely to change Republican Donald Trump's win in the state.

Now, Donald Trump has gone off the rails a bit, citing that there was massive voter fraud in Virginia, California, and New Hampshire, and that he would’ve won the popular vote if you negate the millions of illegal votes. There’s no evidence to these claims either, though Clinton seems to be running up the popular vote margin due to the scores of liberals voting in the Golden State, which pretty much give credence to why we shouldn’t elect our president through a direct election. Besides the arduous and tortuous process of having a run-off or a recount, which would increase the likelihood of fraud, the Left Coast and the Northeast would be the areas of the country that decide who will become the next president. The liberal bubble would reign supreme. I don’t think so. While I know Trump supporters like it when the president-elect goes after the media and the politicians on Twitter, he won. He has bigger things on the docket, like picking the rest of his cabinet, especially the person who will become his secretary of state.

Trump won. Period. There’s no need to toss out allegations. He’s punching down now, not up. As for Ms. Stein, let it go, lady—but I know you still have money to collect in this recount crusade. In the meantime, I guess progressives can continue to whine about how Clinton lost to Trump—and they’re torching their wallets while they're at it.
