[Ed. – The fundraising goal has more than quadrupled, even though Wisconsin won’t be having a hand recount, which is the expensive thing. Who do you suppose the chumps are who keep donating? No fair saying “George Soros.” Be creative here.]
Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein has yet again raised the fundraising goal for an attempted vote recount in three battleground states and is currently seeking $9.5 million for the effort.
Stein, who first called for recounts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan on Nov. 23, initially sought $2.2 million for the effort. Once the goal was met, Stein increased the amount to $4.5 million. Shortly after, Stein said the total costs would hit $7 million. Stein has since upped the goal to $9.5 million. …
Stein has raised $6.8 million for the attempted recounts over the course of the past week. This is more than twice the amount that Stein’s campaign hauled in throughout the entire 2016 election cycle.
Stein has said that excess funds would go toward “election integrity efforts” and to promote “voting system reform.”
Marc Elias, Hillary Clinton’s top campaign lawyer and partner at the Washington, D.C.-based law firm Perkins Coie, has been the go-to lawyer in challenging voter identification laws in a number of states with Republican-dominated legislatures.
Elias’ efforts were bankrolled by millions of dollars from liberal billionaire George Soros.
