STATEWIDE ELECTION CONTEST IN PA WITHDRAWN: BUT COUNTY RECOUNT DANGER REMAINS.

Jill Stein's attorneys withdrew the Petition for a statewide recount about an hour ago, claiming they could not raise the $1,000,000 bond, according to a CBS affiliate. The matter has been dismissed with prejudice, since the deadline to file has passed, and no future contest in Pennsylvania is possible.

So where did the millions raised by Stein go? She actually gets an impossible (and illegal) shot at a statewide contest under favorable conditions; Trump's legal team appears incompetent or compromised; the media praetorian guard protects her; the court kneels in prayer before her by humiliating the rule of law; and we know she's raised millions in funds.

Yet her attorneys say the poor citizen petitioners can't afford the bond. This withdrawal was not about money.

Trump had better not let his guard down, it's no time to celebrate in PA, since Stein has just said the county by county recounts are still underway. I have seen nothing published today indicating thr recanvass of voting machines in Allegheny County tommorow has been called off.

If anyone has a link to any county level recount petitions, please link in comments to this post.

Unless I see that all of the county recounts, either before the election boards, or courts of common pleas have also been dismissed with prejudice, I intend to follow through tommorow, on exposing everything in my report discussed here earlier today.

  1. I have to agree with Jander. Never, ever, ever let your guard down with these people. All they have to do is "find" enough votes to get within .5%, and an entire statewide recount is triggered. The counties have no authority to do these recounts; we must come up with a strategy to stop them in court. Is anyone reading this from PA?

    1. I wish the news media idiots would read the PA code about automatic recounts. The code explicitly states that the automatic recount must be ordered by the PA SOS by the second Thursday after the date of the election: or 11/17. That ship has sailed.

  2. It would seem only real issue count be 'finding' +20,000 or so votes to get to the magic .5% mark. And I agree this counting ongoing is illegal - does anyone know the total of Allegheney so as to measure if a 20,000 vote find passes the sniff test...

    1. I guarantee it will be absentee or provisional ballots. Total vehicles for fraud.

    2. Philly "found" all they could. They went final on Friday. Washington County (south of Pittsburgh, very red) still has not filed their final results, and this could give Trump another 5,000 back.

      I believe that the mandatory recount provision is triggered by the initial count, not remcanvass.

    4. Allegheny County's results were finalized on the 23rd of Nov. These results were going to be certified until Jillary stepped in the way with her pleads for a recount. They'll be doing a few precinct level recounts there on Dec 5th or 6th. Philly already finished their tiny recount on Friday, and the vote tally didn't change.

      There shouldn't be a 22k magic trick in Allegheny.

      The real concern I have is with Montgomery County -- the last Liberal stronghold that has not posted its final results. They have a report dated Nov 9th that's missing 5k absentee ballots (Lorie Slass has confirmed that 21k were returned, but the Nov 9th report only counted 16k). Even if all 5k went to Hillary, it wouldn't be enough to trigger an automatic recount. But the possibility of thousands of uncounted provisional ballots is worrying.

    5. According to PA County Commisioner of Elections, there are note enough uncounted votes to change the electionan results.

    1. 1. http://www.philadelphiavotes.com/en/resources-a-data/ballot-box-app

      2. By recounting ONLY areas where Clinton results were highest, they naturally can expect to improve Clinton results. That should be illegal.

      3. Counting previously ignored and uncounted votes leaves ample opportunity for fraud. Doing so in known-Clinton areas allows the new votes to be heavily weighted for Clinton with less amazement.

      Clinton is getting 84% of the Absentee votes, and 88% of the
      Provisional votes. How convenient.

    2. That's for Philly though. Trump only received 15% of the vote there.

  4. The Philly machine recount was done yesterday. I'm sure they found little if any difference--that probably partially led to the capitulation earlier today. Montgomery judge said no, and I"m sure the remaining county judges will be emboldened by this to do the same. I would expect a pleading in Allegheny County Monday AM to shut it down as well.

    It is over.

    1. Never underestimate these people. It's not over until Trump is inaugurated on Jan 20th and the transfer of power is complete.

    2. The Pennsylvania County Commissioner of Elections has apparently spoken and stated that any outstanding ballots that remain are not enough to overturn the statewide results.

  5. What do you know about taking a state recount case to Federal Court and how is Jill violating it this time?

    This cunt is ridiculous. Her own party fucking hates her.

    1. The Federal Court will highly drop it, since she decided to dump the State Court. Claims of Constitutional lawsuit on the Federal level..... I am waiting to see what kind of crazy scheme is being cooked up. I would say a 99.9% chance the Federal would deny or kick her back to the State level.

    3. edit, and it was dropped with prejudice. ( finite, over, that time has past )

  6. I'm guessing Jill Stein already has a compliant Federal Judge lined up to rule in her favor. I have no idea what the "Constitutional" grounds will be.

    1. Probably along the lines of " antiquated equipment, or the inability for people to pay the bond" . Right now, it is just a dog and pony show for her benefit. She would be shopping, in the literal sense, for an activist judge. However, I don't see, IMHO, a Federal District Judge that is going to try to overide PA's State Constitution and Election Code, especially since she has now had her case dismissed with prejudice in that State. Imagine the fallout precedent if a Federal judge allowed it. It would be a can of worms to any States deadlines wherein no one, or no State Law results in what she is wanting done. She is literally skipping the Captain to go to the Colonel in a sense, hoping to forever change State's Sovereignty rights on Elections if succeeding. Just my opinion.

    2. The funny thing here is they may try to say the $1,000,000 was prohibitive and unconstitutional, like they are doing in public. Interestingly, the order requesting the $1,000,000 bond was for AFTER the hearing, and also stated that it could be adjusted based on pleadings IN the hearing.

      How dumb are these people? I guess Ken Otter is trying hard to spend the millions Jill has raised...

    3. Punch back twice as hard. Good Att'y should file class action against Green Party. They took $7M yet won't spend the $1M - and shop a wrong venue cause that on is 'free'. I feel she always intended to end on a court ruling note, and blame the courts, she couldn't go further. But PA said ante up $1M please, but Greens + Stein would rather keep the money. Why lose for $1M when you can lose for free.
