Federal Judge Dismisses Recount In PA

Timeliness.

If a state can't certify its election results by a date certain (December 13th), it misses the electoral college safe-harbor date and those results may be ignored by the college.

That may suit Clinton, Inc. just fine, but it would be a real kick in the pants to the state's voters. A judge has dismissed Jill Stein's call for a recount.

A federal judge on Monday rejected a motion for a recount, saying "there is no credible evidence that any 'hack' occurred" and that evidence showed Pennsylvania’s voting system "was not in any way compromised."

U.S. District Judge Paul S. Diamond blasted what he called a "prejudicial delay" in seeking a recount, saying it could not be done at this late date without "inexcusably disenfranchising some six million Pennsylvania voters."

"Prejudicial delay" refers to the idea that Stein's request came too late, and a recount could thus not be finished by the safe-harbor deadline.

See Jazz Shaw's recap-- the judge blasted Stein for showing up on the last possible day to file, not even bothering to post the required $100,000 bond to start the recount process.

People who suspect that Stein's whole recount operation was just a cash-grab might draw the conclusion that whoops, now Stein has to keep most of the money she'd raised for a recount in Pennsylvania.

Meanwhile, the only active recount, going on in Wisconsin, is going nowhere slow. 91% of all districts have reported their recount numbers, and out of the nearly three million votes cast, less than a thousand total votes have been added to the tallies of all four candidates. Hillary's gained something like sixty votes on Trump -- not going to be enough to overcome Trump's 22,000+ vote advantage.
