Wisconsin: Stein Demands Recount By Hand

Lawyer up!

From Milwaukee Patch:

The Wisconsin Elections Commission has denied a request by Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein to perform a recount of ballots by hand and she is prepared to go to court to challenge the decision, according to media reports. The recount will begin Thursday if payment for the process is received by Tuesday.

...President-elect Donald Trump narrowly won the state's 10 electoral votes — about 27,000 votes separate him and Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton — and Wisconsin Elections Commission chairman Mark Thomsen doesn't expect that to change with the recount.

Thomsen, a Democrat, said Monday he is confident the Nov. 8 vote will be upheld in the recount, but he was critical of Trump, who — despite having won the most electoral votes — claimed on Twitter Sunday that "massive fraud" had denied him the popular vote as well and that "millions of people" had voted illegally.

...The plan approved Monday would leave it to officials in each of Wisconsin’s 72 counties to decide whether to do their recounts by hand, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. That could mean some counties perform recounts by machine and some by hand. The deadline for county clerks to submit final count reports is 8 p.m. Monday, Dec. 12.

...Green Party officials have estimated the recount will cost more than $1 million — a bill they're prepared to pay. However, they want what they're paying for — a hand recount of all ballots. They said Sunday that they're willing to go to court if the clerks don't comply.

Recount advocates may have to do just that.
Jill Stein's behavior is pathetic.

The Leftists and Never Trump people went nuts when Trump wouldn't guarantee his acceptance of the election results when asked during the third and final presidential debate.

Hillary Clinton called Trump's answer "horrifying."

The "horrified" Leftists are the ones unwilling to accept the peaceful transition of power.
