    Bank on it.

    Stein Challenges Constitutionality Of Pennsylvania Recount

    Former Green party presidential nominee Dr. Jill Stein has asked a federal judge in Pennsylvania to rule that the state’s recount procedure is unconstitutional.

    The complaint was lodged in connection with litigation staged after President Donald Trump’s victory in the November general election. Stein’s campaign raised over $7 million in order to finance recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. Lawyers representing former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton briefly participated in the effort, which did not uncover evidence of abnormalities.

    In an amended complaint filed this week, Stein argues Pennsylvania’s recount procedure violates the Fourteenth Amendment’s due process guarantee, because it contains no mechanism for individual voters to review a record of their ballot after casting their vote on an electronic interface. Many states maintain voter-verifiable paper audit trails (VVPATs), a printout provided by a voting machine which allows a voter to verify their ballot was cast correctly. Many states keep these records after the election, in the event of a recount.

    Absent some verification system like a VVPAT, Stein claims it is impossible to audit electronic voting machines to ensure they have not been compromised by hackers.

    But the only ones we need to worry about are the ones in Pennsylvania. Because Michigan is manual count. Plus the recount in Wisconsin kept finding even more Trump voters. And all of the rest were either too wide a margin to worry about or they went overwhelmingly to the Wicked Witch.

    How many more does Stein need to prove she was the real winner again?

    They need to change the laws so that only a person who stands a chance of turning an election in their favor can bring suits to court that cause expensive recounts. Or even better, make the challenger that can't win no matter what the outcome pay for 100% of the costs.

    I agree that any loser who does not stand a chance of winning should pay for the entire court/litigation costs of a recount or any frivolous lawsuit.
