What Happened to Jill Stein's Recount Millions?

Shortly after the 2016 election, Jill Stein raised more than $7 million from shell-shocked liberals eager to pursue a swing-state recount. Nearly two years later, the U.S. Green Party’s last candidate for president is still spending that money.

Ongoing litigation, travel costs, and staff salaries are also likely to eat up whatever is left, meaning those who donated to Stein are unlikely to receive a once-promised chance to vote on how the post-recount money would be spent. Nor have donors been given much of a window into how Stein is actually spending their donations.

The last FEC filing from the Stein campaign was for the month of September 2017. And the last update from the campaign itself came in a post on April 20, in which it said it was down to $932,178 in recount funds.

"It is strange that they would just stop filing reports given they were a legitimate, professional campaign, and despite still having more than a million dollars in cash on hand,” Andrew Mayersohn, a researcher at the Center for Responsive Politics, told The Daily Beast.

1. Come Now

Did anyone really think this was anything other than a cruel scam? Cruel to the millions who knew they'd been cheated and hope, against hope, this might be a remedy.

11. I hope Mueller

has something on stein, too.. in his Russian investigation.



Jill Stein says she won’t fully comply with Senate Russia investigation

After months of silence, Stein says she will withhold information from Congress.

While Stein handed over all communications with Russian media organizations, as well as information about her 2015 travel to Moscow, she refused to comply with a request for “communications with Russian persons, or representatives of Russian government, media, or business interests.”

2. she was a scam from the get-go

not just the recount millions but the campaign money as well - and by that I mean any funds she may have received for being a spoiler.

14. I did not send money, but I was so desperate I would have sent 20 bucks if there had been...

...a P.O. Box to send it to. Therefore I count myself among those befooled by Stein, even though I believed her on nothing else, and now (long since) recognize her as very possibly a traitor to our country.

As I say, I believed her on nothing else, but at the very end she conned even me. Just thinking back to election night and the weeks following hurts so badly I want to weep.
