Hillary Clinton’s campaign may rue the day they signed on in support of Jill Stein’s recall effort.
Stein instigated the recount, most likely at the behest of a Democrat Party looking to delegitimize the Trump presidency, arguing that fraud must be ruled out.
“We must have a system we can be confident in,” she proclaimed.
Problem being, Stein’s recount in Michigan has thus far turned up evidence of voter fraud in Detroit, where 95% of the turnout there voted for Hillary Clinton.
The problems are so widespread that over half of the votes cast in Detroit may not be eligible for a recount.
Via the Detroit News:
One-third of precincts in Wayne County could be disqualified from an unprecedented statewide recount of presidential election results because of problems with ballots.
Michigan’s largest county voted overwhelmingly for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, but officials couldn’t reconcile vote totals for 610 of 1,680 precincts during a countywide canvass of vote results late last month.
Most of those are in heavily Democratic Detroit, where the number of ballots in precinct poll books did not match those of voting machine printout reports in 59 percent of precincts, 392 of 662.
According to state law, precincts whose poll books don’t match with ballots can’t be recounted. If that happens, original election results stand.
According to the Wayne County Clerk website, roughly 95% of the votes cast in Detroit were cast for Clinton.
A few weeks prior to the election, the Trump and Clinton campaigns exchanged barbs over the potential of voter fraud occurring in Michigan.
Chairman of the Michigan Democrat Party, Brandon Dillon, said Trump’s “totally unfounded” claims about voter fraud are the words of a candidate who knows he will lose on Nov. 8.
Trump’s campaign meanwhile expressed concern over a “rigged” election system, driven by “large-scale voter fraud” including voting by dead people.
All of this comes just months after a top Democrat election official in New York City admitted in an undercover video that he thinks “there is a lot of voter fraud.”
Further examples of can be seen in Philadelphia, where non-citizens were registered to vote, some of which had already voted in previous elections. It can be seen in Illinois, where Democrats were caught bribing voters with cash. It can be seen in Texas where people were allowed to cast votes without identification by using mail-in ballots. And it can be seen when a Democrat operative in upstate New York declared his party to be engaged in ballot manipulation and forgery that he defined as “a normal political tactic.”
Now we’re seeing it in Detroit as Democrats engage in a scam recount effort.
