UPDATE: Judge lets Clinton join recount lawsuit

I think she's actually fighting for transparency and not the Presidency.

A judge has allowed Hillary Clinton to join Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein's lawsuit seeking a hand recount in Wisconsin.

Dane County Circuit Judge Valerie Bailey-Rihn granted a request from Clinton's attorneys to join the lawsuit without comment during a hearing Tuesday afternoon. Clinton's team had argued she has a stake in the recount and manual counting is the most transparent method for the public.

Donald Trump beat Clinton by about 22,000 votes in Wisconsin. The recount will start Thursday if Stein or De La Fuente or both meet a Tuesday deadline to pay the $3.5 million cost.


Oh, and she has a signup page on her website:

Roger Stone: Clinton more likely to face prosecution after recount


Petty much?

Roger Stone, the Republican strategist and campaign confidant of Donald Trump, suggested Monday without evidence that Hillary Clinton is more likely to face prosecution under the president-elect’s administration because her campaign is cooperating with Jill Stein’s recount effort.

Again offering no evidence, Stone told Steve Malzberg that “we have to presume” that the money funding the Stein campaign’s call for a recount is from billionaire donor George Soros or from Clinton, who lost the White House to Trump this month in a major upset.

Trumplets organizing against the recount

The craziest of the Trumplets are now creating form letters to send to various officials and news media. I've quoted the form letter below but there are links to lots of different officials' and news sites' emails in the thread. It's just a friggin' recount, why are they panicking?

Dear Wisconsin/Michigan/Pennsylvania Governor, Election Board, News:

Do you think it is right that your state should allow a recount after our country FINALLY BEGAN TO HEAL? Stop the division, stop the recount!

If recount happens, please do not allow campaign members to volunteer due to a clear lack of neutrality. What are you doing to get the word out so democracy loving Americans this state know they can volunteer?

Lastly, what assurance can you give me--GIVE AMERICA--that the recount will be completed by the December 13th deadline so this state can be represented at the Electoral College vote casting on the 19th of December?

Thank you for your time!




PS: I will forward my concerns I listed above to the Governor's Office/Election Board/Local News.

I don't like to link to this place, but the links therein could also be helpful to DUers. Just... don't read any of the other threads at that place; it's one step up from 4chan. I think it's where Infowars gets their headlines.

Jill Stein hitting front page news...



If this actually does happen, and I'm not saying it will, she's also looking for volunteers to observe the recounting in every county so if you live in the areas and can do it, volunteer.


Not getting my hopes up as I can only have them crushed every so often. But reading Trumpers in other forums pissing their pants does make me smile.

No more Clinton email leaks?

It seems Wikileaks stopped releasing those 'legit' emails that they were releasing throughout the election. Why could that be?

Mission accomplished?

I've been so despondent since the election that I only realized this today. What a shitty year.
