Strein's Recount Scam Ends

Stein’s Recount Scam Ends

by Stephen Lendman

It was stillborn before begun, succeeding only in disgracing herself, leaving her credibility in tatters, rendering her politically dead, an exposed Hillary war goddess supporter pretending to be progressive.

Claiming voter fraud and wanting to assure election integrity in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan was a transparent scam - her claim based at least in part on phony accusations of Russian hacking, no credible evidence supporting it.

On December 13, the recount deadline, her con game officially ended, Last week, Michigan’s Court of Appeals ruled 3 - 0 against the recount, saying her low vote disqualified her as an aggrieved candidate.

On Monday, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania recounts ended, both states certifying Trump’s victory, voter totals nearly unchanged in both states, numbers differing from initial reports too minor to matter.

Pennsylvania US District Court Judge Paul Diamond rejected Stein’s lawsuit for a statewide recount, saying her claim of a hacked election “borders on the irrational.”

“(T)here is no credible evidence that any ‘hack’ occurred, and compelling evidence that Pennsylvania’s voting system was not in any way compromised,” he stressed.

Stein proved she’s a scam artist, a dirty politician like America’s bipartisan criminal class in Washington.

Green Party stalwarts should expel her from their ranks, banishing her from ever again being part of their legitimate activism for social, economic and political change in America.
