Remember Jill Steen's phony recount scam, where she tricked morons into giving her millions of dollars? It turns out there's even more shenanigans going on than an attempt to grab a quick buck.
A federal judge in Michigan put a stop to the recount, stating that Steen had no legal grounds for the recount. Judge Mark Goldsmith "said Stein, who finished fourth in Michigan on Nov. 8, didn't have a chance of winning even after a recount and therefore isn't an "aggrieved" candidate."
"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 ruling comes on the heels of reports of possible voter fraud in several heavily Democratic counties. 59% of Wayne County, home of Detroit, precincts were showing vote discrepancies. "[T]he number of ballots in precinct poll books did not match those of voting machine printout reports in 59 percent of precincts, 392 of 662.”
"Michigan’s state law says if a precinct’s poll books don’t match its ballots, then the original election results must stand."
Antiquated optical scanners were to blame. Several machines broke on election day, leading to inaccurate vote counts, with some ballots being read multiple times.
As for voting machine issues, Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft isn’t buying Baxter’s explanation.
Once they started the Michigan recount in earnest, and knowing he would be exposed, the Detroit City Clerk Daniel Baxter all of a sudden started claiming that the optical scanners which read the paper ballots did not work the day of the election. Baxter blamed the discrepancies on decade-old voting machines. That is his cover story. Nothing like this was mentioned until he realized their voting fraud scheme would be detected.In fact, some votes may have been counted as many as six times.
Baxter’s claim is that, when trying to push the ballots through the readers, the ballots would be stuck and they’d have to push them through again thus ‘ACCIDENTALLY’ resulting in a double count. He says the poll workers sometimes ‘FORGET’ to adjust the machine count and instead let the ballot count twice.
Of course, that’s COMPLETELY BULLSH-T.
