How nice, the taxpayers get stuck with this.  Stein should have to pay all of it which was what I thought was the deal. *She is admitting she won't win in so many words, but forges ahead.  I'm not worried about the results not being finished by the deadline, one way or another. **A bonanza thanks to Soros' bots.

*While Stein received less than 50,000 votes in the Keystone state, she contends that the recount is in order to build trust in the election system. “

 **Stein’s efforts have led to a fundraising bonanza for the Green Party itself.

Green party candidate Jill Stein filed a request for recount Wednesday in the state of Michigan, following through on her promise to pursue recounts in three states that delivered the election to President-elect Donald Trump.

Stein requested a hand recount of the state’s presidential election ballots, a process that will take a tremendous amount of resources in order to a Dec. 13 deadline. (See Official Recount Request here, courtesy of the Detroit News)

Michigan’s Secretary of State Ruth Johnson said that the cost of a recount of the 4.8 million ballots could total $5 million. Stein’s attorneys submitted a $973,250 check at the state Bureau of Elections Wednesday (the legally required fee for a recount), leaving the remaining cost on state and county governments.
