The Jill Stein Recount Ploy is a Scam Worthy of the CNBC Show American Greed

Hillary Clinton already conceded the election and isn't interested in dividing the country via a ridiculous recount. After all, she was the one holding Trump's feet to the fire in accepting the outcome of the elections and not challenging its efficacy. Enter Shill Stein and her money grabbing schemes -- playing off the butthurt feelings of the millions of people crying into their dinner jackets over the Clinton loss -- raising enormous amounts of funds from them since Wednesday.

Let me rephrase that so it can sink in. Jill Stein is brazenly taking advantage of people by hanging hope of their heads, saying send me your money and I will ensure Trump isn't the next President of the United States. Essentially, that's what this is about, no? Since Wednesday, Stein's money raising schemes have topped $5 million. Her original goal was $2.5m, but rose, dramatically, after the money started to roll in. Her new goal is $7 million. Recounts will begin in Wisconsin soon. She's hoping to do recounts in PA and MI too, for the sake of the people, of course. Via her own website:

"We cannot guarantee a recount will happen in any of these states we are targeting. We can only pledge we will demand recounts in those states." If the recounts don't happen, what will become of all that money? Stein's website says any "surplus will also go toward election integrity efforts and to promote voting system reform."

Interestingly, as her money raising schemes proved successful, the alleged costs associated with the recount rose dramatically -- including millions to be paid out to lawyers.


Nate Silver isn't a fan.

Jonah sums it up perfectly.
