Jill Stein’s Post-Election Fundraising May Not Go for Recounts
by Stephen Lendman
She’s raised millions of dollars from naive donors, most of it likely dirty money from anti-Trump dark forces, her goal $7 million for recounts in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
Her scheme is a ruse, a cruel hoax to undermine Trump’s election, steal it for Hillary, wanting her as America’s 45th president, not him – underhanded tactics OK, under the phony guise of assuring “election integrity.”
Individuals duped to donating should demand their money back. Dark forces have plenty to spread around for toxic purposes. A scheme to install Hillary as president instead of Trump is despicable enough. Here’s another reason.
According to lawnewz.com, familiar with “the fine print” of Stein’s fundraising, a clause states:
“We cannot guarantee a recount will happen in any of these states we are targeting. We can only pledge we will demand recounts in those states.”
“If we raise more than what’s needed, the surplus will also go toward election integrity efforts and to promote voting system reform.”
Without explicit elaboration, it’s unknown what she means. Will she hold onto some or all funds raised, keep them for future campaigning, or use them for purposes other than her stated intentions?
Betraying supporters like myself shows she can’t be trusted. Shun and denounce her instead as a duplicitous fraud, unfit for any public office.
Chances for overturning Trump’s triumph for Hillary are virtually nil. Recounts remain to be seen. The Wisconsin Elections Commission said it’s “preparing to move forward with” one, calling a federal December 13 deadline a challenge to finish on time. No word yet from Pennsylvania and Michigan.
In her petition for a Wisconsin recount, Stein disgracefully joined the chorus of Russia bashers, citing DHS and media scoundrels, exposed liars, wrongfully claiming “well-documented and conclusive evidence of foreign interference…call(ing) into question the results” – her words.
She may be devious and self-serving, but she’s not stupid. She’ll have millions of dollars at her disposal, raised virtually overnight, far more than donor amounts during months of presidential campaigning.
What will she do with what’s not spent? Lots of money may remain in her possession. Her explanation doesn’t wash. She’s not legally bound to use funds raised for her stated purpose, nor return amounts unspent.
Is dirty money from dark forces rewarding her for supporting Hillary? Is the DNC involved in the scheme covertly?
It reeks of deception and fraud! Spread the word! Don’t let her get away with it! Fight back! Denounce her! Exposure her as a dirty self-serving politician like all the rest!
