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.
