    Stein's push to request a recount in Pennsylvania

    I notice this forum is rarely used, but I thought I would post this thread here anyway.

    I'm curious what opinions people have regarding this idea that Jill Stein has to push for a voter recount in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Washington states.
    This thread is mainly for Pennsylvania, as I live there and am most interested in that.

    Personally, I'm wondering if the effort will draw some attention to what I consider...questionable...voting systems in PA - I read somewhere that about 80% of voters in PA vote on DRE machines (which have no paper trail).

    If Stein were sincere in her efforts she's be voting recounts in pretty much every state. But she's only requesting states where Trump won narrowly, excluding Washington which I haven't seen yet. We all know that the voting systems are weird, many not having paper trails. It just makes her look like she's acting on behalf of Hillary Clinton.

    Well, according to the Pennsylvania Election Summary Pennsylvania Elections - Summary Results

    Trump 2,934,583

    Clinton 2,863,945

    A difference of 70,638 votes in Trump's favor. There would have to be a hellavalot of errors to drop that number to a point questioning Trump's win in PA.
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    I think it probably has something to with trying to mess with state electors come time for them to cast their ballots.

    She's a total hypocrite doing this only to Trump states he won by a small margin and ignoring Clinton ones.

    Sorry, I was operating off memory and replaced Wisconsin with Washington

    It's Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin where they are trying to call a recount.

    Exactly.

    Which is why even if they could it would have to uncover some ridiculous level of problems to make a difference.
    I'm mainly hoping that if it gets some kind of traction it will make people consider the quality of the voting machines in PA and possibly improve it. But that's a slim hope.

    Too bad she is not interested in Washington State.

    That would interest me as we are almost 100% vote by mail here, and I took lightly her claim to care about voter fraud.

    Especially since that mass shooting in Burlington blew open the fact that non citizens can register and vote and state law prohibits elections officials from verifying eligibility
