Poll: Do you think a Pennsylvania recount will impact the outcome of the presidential election?
Dr. Jill Stein maintains that by recounting Pennsylvania’s votes, it will restore integrity and trust in the voting process. The former Green Party presidential nominee, however, missed the voter-initiated recount at the county level.
That didn’t stop her from filing a lawsuit Monday, contending that its in the best interest of the electorate to confirm Republican President-elect Donald Trump’s victory over Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton. Trump won Pennsylvania by 71,000 votes.
Secretary of State Pedro Cortes, a Democrat, relayed the message that he doesn’t have any supporting evidence that there was voter fraud on Election Day.
Pennsylvania Republican Party chairman Rob Gleason said, “Our General Counsel has reviewed the Election Contest and said it is totally and completely without any merit. It does not even allege any facts to support its wild claim that the ‘discontinuity’ of pre-election polls reported by the media showing that Hillary Clinton would win and the actual results could only have occurred through computer hacking originated by a foreign government.
“This desperate act by Jill Stein and those supporting her is a sad commentary on the failure of some to accept the results of the will of the people as reflected by their votes.”
