Jill Stein’s Temper Tantrum Cost Michigan Taxpayers $$millions!

0

Surprise! Surprise! Jill Stein’s witchhunt in Michigan ended today. A judge ruled today that there is no legal grounds for her to request another look at the ballots.

What exactly were you expecting? Most of us knew all along, this was nothing more than a publicity stunt or a stunt by Soros to line Stein’s pockets with cash, while wasting more taxpayers’ money for someone with zero chance of winning. Unfortunately, Michigan taxpayers are the real losers.

H/T Fortune:

A federal judge who ordered Michigan to begin its recount effectively ended it on Wednesday, tying his decision to a state court ruling that found Green Party candidate Jill Stein had no legal standing to request another look at ballots.

The ruling seals Republican Donald Trump’s narrow victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton for Michigan’s 16 electoral votes.

U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith agreed with Republicans who argued that the three-day recount must end a day after the state appeals court dealt a blow to the effort. The court said Stein, who finished fourth in Michigan on Nov. 8, didn’t have a chance of winning even after a recount and therefore isn’t an “aggrieved” candidate.

Because there is no basis for this court to ignore the Michigan court’s ruling and make an independent judgment regarding what the Michigan Legislature intended by the term ‘aggrieved,’ plaintiffs have not shown an entitlement to a recount,” Goldsmith said.

It was the judge’s midnight ruling Monday that started the recount in Michigan. But Goldsmith’s order dealt with timing—not whether a recount was appropriate. More than 20 of 83 counties already were counting ballots again. They reported minor changes in vote totals, although many precincts couldn’t be examined for a second time for a variety of reasons.

Earlier Wednesday, the Michigan elections board voted, 3-1, to end the recount if Goldsmith extinguished his earlier order.

State Republican Party Chairman Ronna Romney McDaniel and Attorney General Bill Schuette said it’s a victory for voters and taxpayers. Stein now is left with asking the Michigan Supreme Court to intervene, which is a long shot.

Jill Stein, who received only 1.07% of the vote in Michigan, is not legally entitled to hijack the will of voters and drag them into an arduous and expensive publicity stunt,” McDaniel said.

Stein got about 1% of the vote in three states where she’s pushed for recounts—Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Trump narrowly won all three.

The judge said a recount to test the integrity of the voting system “has never been endorsed by any court.”

One down, two to go!

Friday we’ll find out if there’ll be a recount in Pennsylvania.

In Wisconsin, it already looks like Trump is actually GAINING votes. No surprise there.

We all know the Michigan recount was all just an expensive waste of time and taxpayers dollars.  The full state recount would have cost Michigan taxpayers over $5 million for a candidate with no chance of even winning.

Certainly Stein, a candidate with only 1% of the vote had no chance anyway. This was more about Soros funding the recount on behalf of Clinton through Stein. Clinton needed all THREE states to win and that’s just not going to happen.

On December 19th the electoral college will formally elect Donald Trump as our next president.

It’s time to come together, stand united and “Make America Great Again”.
