Michigan Denies Stein's Recount Appeal

Posted: Dec 09, 2016 8:00 PM

Jill Stein's recount effort in Michigan is officially over. Earlier this week, a federal judge lifted an order that allowed a recount to take place, meaning Trump would remain the Great Lake State victor.

Stein asked for an appeal, but on Friday the Supreme Court has denied her that wish.

As Hot Air's Ed Morrissey notes, Stein's prospects in Pennsylvania are just as dire. U.S. district court Judge Paul Diamond said he will rule on a recount on Monday, the day before the Keystone State needs to file its presidential vote total for the electoral college.
