The election results in Michigan were just certified on Monday. Donald Trump won the state by over 10,704 votes out of a total of 4.8 million. The results weren’t even 48 hours old, but that doesn’t seem to matter to Clinton or the Green Party candidate, Jill Stein, who received less than 1% of the vote.
Stein and Clinton are claiming the election was “hacked”. TOTAL INSANITY! The fact is Michigan’s voting system is entire paper and optical scan. There is NOTHING connected to the internet, but that doesn’t seem to matter to Stein, Clinton or the Soros funded distraction. Democrats can’t stand the fact that Clinton lost and they want someone to pay…big time!
H/T Detroit Free Press:
Taxpayers could be on the hook for close to $1 million — or more — for a proposed recount of Michigan’s presidential election results, Secretary of State Ruth Johnson said Tuesday.
Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who took just more than 1% of the presidential vote in the Nov. 8 election, has announced she will request a statewide recount by Wednesday’s deadline as a check against possible counting mistakes or fraud.
Stein is being charged $125 per precinct, a cost originally estimated at $787,500 in total.
But Michigan Elections Director Chris Thomas said Monday the actual cost charged to Stein could be around $900,000, based on the final size of the recount and the addition of absentee ballot precincts. Any cost beyond the $125 per precinct would be borne by taxpayers at the county level, he said.
Stein’s campaign said in a Tuesday news release it expects to pay a Michigan filing fee of $973,250.
But Tuesday, appearing on the “Paul W. Smith Show” on WJR-AM (760), Johnson estimated the cost will be double what Thomas estimated.
“I don’t think that $900,000 will cover half,” Johnson said, though there is no way of knowing for sure, in advance.
“We’ll have to see exactly what the cost is.”
If the cost was $1.8 million and Stein paid $973,250, taxpayers would be on the hook for close to $827,000, unless Stein is charged more than currently planned. And Johnson suggested the cost could top $1.8 million.
Trump has seven days to file an objection to the recount. You can bet he will.
The Democrats and Hillary can’t handle the truth – TAXPAYERS are going to foot the bill to the tune of about $2 million bucks! How INSANE is THAT?!
These liberal crybabies need to get over it! Donald Trump won! Clinton’s just mad. She did NOT expect to lose.
Well guess what? No one “hacked” into the system! Michigan’s voting system is NOT even connected to the internet. What imbeciles!
If I lived in Michigan I would be livid that this wild goose chase was being funded by hard working Americans. This is just a total waste of the taxpayers’ dollars.
In addition, Michigan’s vote is NOT enough – it’s only 16 electoral votes. Clinton would have to overturn all three states – Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylania and the deadline for Pennsylania has already passed.
This is one massive, expensive and unreasonable undertaking – all because Clinton lost Clinton wants the public to believe that it’s all Jill Stein’s idea…Yeah! Yeah! What a bunch of BS. This has a DemocRAT or Soros written all over it. Wake up people!
Americans voted for Donald Trump for president and to “Make America Great Again”. Are you really going to believe this MSM narrative that Michigan’s paper system was “hacked”?
