Hillary Clinton was just dealt another massive public embarrassment. She can’t hide out on wooded hikes forever; eventually, Hillary will have to rejoin society and face the world as a twice-defeated presidential candidate.
A Michigan federal judge just effectively ended the vote recount in the state. The court official ruled Jill Stein has no legal standing to demand another peek at the ballots cast by Michigan citizens.
The federal judge’s ruling solidifies Donald Trump’s win over Hillary Clinton in Michigan. The president-elect managed to turn not just Michigan to red after being blue for decades, but he pulled off the same feat in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin as well.
United States District Judge Mark Goldsmith agreed with Republicans, who have argued the Michigan recount must end immediately, Politico reports. Judge Goldsmith refused to grant Jill Stein “aggrieved” plaintiff status because she finished fourth in the state and had a zero percent chance of improving her placement after a recount.
“Because there is no basis for this court to ignore the Michigan court’s ruling and make an independent judgment regarding what the Michigan Legislature intended by the term ‘aggrieved,’ plaintiffs have not shown an entitlement to a recount,” Goldsmith said. The same federal judge allowed the recount to begin on Monday but noted his order was a matter of filing deadline timing and not appropriate legal standing.
So far, votes in more than 20 Michigan counties are in the process of being recounted. Some of the counties have already finished their recount.
Green Party candidate Jill Stein earned approximately one percent of the vote in Michigan. Stein also accrued only about the same percentage of support in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin where she is also pushing recounts.
While making the media rounds over the past week, Jill Stein has said repeatedly she isn’t concerned about coming out a winner in any of the recounts. Well, that’s the thing… being delusional is just no way to go through life, but such a demeanor seems to frequently inflict liberals.
Stein claims her motives for the recount are purely for the sake of We the People. Although no evidence exists to support her wild theories, the Green Party candidate maintains she and her progressive pals are justified in their concerns about election fraud.
“They present speculative claims going to the vulnerability of the voting machinery — but not actual injury,” Judge Goldsmith also said. BEFORE Hillary Clinton was soundly defeated, Democrats and far left liberals mocked the idea that any mildly substantial or widespread voter fraud existed in the United States, but all that changed when Trump won.
Hillary Clinton would have to flip all three states back into her corner during the recounts. That was never going to happen even before a federal judge shut down the second ballot tallying in Michigan.
