I just donated to the Jill Stein recount effort.

I am no fan of Jill Stein, but as a candidate she has standing to request a recount. And, if she pays for it, at least some of the states have no recourse.

This is much better than Hillary asking for an audit. She avoids looking like a sore loser, and can be above the fray. It avoids problems within the Dem party between those who want an audit and those who don't.

She has to raise at least $2 million by Friday afternoon, and has raised about $500,000 so far. If you have doubts about the election, please help. If the election was hacked, we may never have another opportunity to audit one.

4. ah no she is not.

Why is she doing this? Has she given a reason? If she gives a valid reason I will contribute to her.

5. That's my feeling

She indicated that she thought Trump and Clinton were equally bad. She can't think she won. I can't figure it out.

9. She might think that fair elections matter?

I know I do. It's actually much better that someone other than Hillary step up to do this but I do think it needs to be done.

6. Could it be that she is curious and at the same time is one of the few who has standing to

request the recount if the money can be raised?

8. Because her party was well short of reaching the federal funding threshold for 2020

And God knows she's going to want to run again.

11. Because it increases her profile and makes it look like she is finally fighting against Trump.
