Following disappointing results from the initial recount efforts in Pennsylvania, CBS reports Jill Stein’s Green Party is dropping its court case seeking a statewide recount of Pennsylvania’s Nov. 8 presidential election, blaming a lack of funds.
As we noted earlier, according to Philly Voice, an updated count Friday by state election officials shows Trump’s lead over Democrat Hillary Clinton has shrunk from 71,000 to 49,000. If this new number is accurate, Trump’s lead is at 0.8 percent, down from more than 1 percent. That is still shy of Pennsylvania’s 0.5 percent trigger for an automatic statewide recount.
On Monday, Jill Stein of the Green Party filed a lawsuit in Pennsylvania seeking a statewide recount of presidential votes in a continuation of her mission to contest the election results in three key voting states.
But now, wanted to explore whether voting machines and systems had been hacked and the election result manipulated, as CBS reports, The Green Party is dropping its case…
The decision came Saturday, two days before a court hearing in the case.
Lawyers for the Green Party-backed voters who filed the case say they can’t afford the $1 million bond ordered by the court by Monday at 5 p.m.
However, Green Party-backed efforts to analyze election software in scattered precincts are continuing.
