After drawing criticism from almost everyone for her recount efforts in WI, PA, & MI, Jill Stein is doubling down saying that she "would support efforts elsewhere to uphold election integrity." Ironically, the only thing actually threatening our "election integrity" at the moment is Jill Stein's recount effort.
Experts pointed us towards WI, PA, & MI as the largest chance of fraud, but we would support efforts elsewhere to uphold election integrity. https://t.co/CypfEBc8Qn— Dr. Jill Stein (@DrJillStein) November 28, 2016
Just yesterday we wrote a note asking why Jill Stein was pursuing these recount efforts (see "Is This The Democrats' Real Strategy In Launching Recounts?"). Certainly there is practically no hope of switching the ~100,000 votes that would be needed for Hillary to win WI, MI and PA and even the Obama administration and the Department of Homeland Security have confirmed that there is no evidence of election hacking. Which left us to speculate that Stein is simply hoping to disrupt the electoral college process to push the 2016 election into the hands Congress while drawing the legitimacy of Trump's presidency into question.
Now, this morning we have a direct confirmation from Stein that her campaign has absolutely no proof of election tampering. Explicit confirmation that all the disaffected Hillary supporters have been duped.
Meanwhile, basking in the glory of her 15 minutes of fame, Stein has launched a tweet storm lecturing everyone on how to create a real "democracy."

This is a good game, and we have another: "Jill Stein: Want Democracy? Don't steal millions of dollars from disaffected Hillary supporters to challenge elections where you have no evidence of election tampering and no chance of changing the outcome."
