Green Party releases statement distancing itself from Jill Stein: Why only recount states Hillary lost?

As failed Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein continues her crusade to help Hillary win the White House through a series of recounts in key states, her own Green Party is now saying they want nothing to do with her effort.

Stein has targeted three key states for recounts in the hope that the vote for Trump can be overturned in favor of Democrat Party nominee Hillary Clinton. But because Stein is now working for Clinton, her own Green Party is calling foul on the recount effort.

The Green Party has put out an official statement distancing itself from Stein, according to the Daily Caller (emphasis added).

“The decision to pursue a recount was not made in a democratic or a strategic way, nor did it respect the established decision-making processes and structures of the Green Party of the United States (GPUS),” the official press release asserts.

“The recount has created confusion about the relationship between the Green and Democratic parties because the states chosen for the recount are only states in which Hillary Clinton lost. There were close races in other states such as New Hampshire and Minnesota where Clinton won, but which were not part of the recount. And this recount does not address the disenfranchisement of voters; it recounts votes that were already counted rather than restoring the suffrage of voters who were prevented from voting.”

 

Many Democrats are also saying that this recount effort is idiotic. Former Governor Ed Rendell, for instance, called the recounts “a big waste of time.”

State officials in Michigan are also raising eyebrows about Stein’s dubious recount efforts, especially since Stein only got one percent of the vote and no amount of recounting will change her final vote count.

In a statement, Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson said that it was “unusual” for a candidate who got so few votes to call for a recount and noted that would not change the outcome. The recount was also pointless, Johnson said, because “There is no evidence of hacking or fraud, or even a credible allegation of any tampering,” Breitbart News reported.

There are also many voices raised asking just where all these millions of dollars have come from that Stein raised over such a short amount of time.
