What did Stein gain from recount flop?

Jill Stein’s rowdy recount push ended with a whimper overnight, giving Donald Trump even more votes than he started with after final certification — but it wasn’t a total wash for the Green Party candidate, who brought in millions and put herself in a position to redistribute the leftover cash.

The Grenfell Tower blaze, which trapped dozens of people in their beds, has become a focus of public anger at the Conservative government’s austerity cuts and the perceived slow response in trying to look after those who escaped. The government said the number of high-rise tower blocks in England found to have “cladding” – panels placed on the facades of buildings, mainly for insulation or to improve their appearance – that have failed fire safety tests had risen to seventy-five from sixty. Communities minister Sajid Javid said that all samples submitted had failed the tests, which May’s spokesman had earlier said was “concerning”.

Stein raised about $seven.three million in 3 weeks to fund recount efforts, more than double what she raised for her failed presidential campaign. The money poured in from one hundred and sixty-one,three00 donors across the country. Another ten, volunteers signed up to help the drive. It’s unclear exactly how much remains — millions went to recount costs and legal fees — but she announced Tuesday she plans to donate leftover funds to election-reform and voting-rights groups. “It was an amazing affirmation of the power of the American people to have a voice in their voting system and demand elections with integrity,” Stein said in a statement Tuesday.

May, who scored a deal with a Northern Irish party to prop up her minority government on Monday, wants to repair her authority by showing leadership in dealing with the aftermath of the June fourteen Grenfell disaster, but faces criticism by her political opponents.

On the surface, the recounts accomplished little. Her attempts to get fresh tallies in MI and RI were blocked in court. Stein had suggested – without evidence – that voting machines in those states and WY could have been hacked in the November election.

“Clearly it’s concerning, concerning for residents who are living in these blocks,” the spokesman told reporters at a regular government briefing. “That’s why we have put in place a system where testing can be carried out very quickly and whereby local authorities are informed immediately when a positive test comes back and that appropriate measures are put in place,” he said. Responding to criticism that the testing program was not running quickly enough, he said landlords must get potentially flammable building materials tested as soon as possible.

MI Attorney General Bill Schutte, a Republican, argued in the lawsuit that a hand recount would cost taxpayers around $two million. Other esimates put it as high as $onetwo million. Though unsuccessful in MI, Stein was able to request and pay for the WY recount which started on Dec. one. But that effort resulted in Trump picking up thirteenone net votes, as his victory was certified in all 3 states. Trump boasted on Twitter: “The final WY vote is in and guess what – we just picked up an additional thirteenone votes. The Dems and Green Party can now rest. Scam!”

Material should also be tested in schools and hospitals if there were safety concerns there too. Some sixty0 buildings are being tested, showing how widely combustible cladding may have been used across Britain. “It is clearly of huge concern that this is the case,” the spokesman said.

The fizzling finish came after Stein faced accusations of wasting time and draining grassroots resources. Stein’s own running mate initially was against the recount, as was Hillary Clinton’s campaign. But Stein insisted all along her goal wasn’t to overturn the results of the presidential election but instead to instill confidence in the election results and voting systems. At the least, the effort has allowed her to stay in the spotlight, and with her announcement Tuesday puts her in charge of distributing the leftover funds she raised. It also connected her with more donors.

“What is apparent is that this is on buildings across the country . Obviously the job for the public inquiry will be to find out how and why this happened,” he said, hoping there would be an earlier interim report to cast some light on why such materials were used and whether they met safety requirements.S. firm Arconic Inc said it was stopping global sales of its Reynobond Peru cladding, which was used in Grenfell Tower, for use in high-rise buildings following the fire. Shares in Arconic fell around five percent. (Reporting by Elizabeth Piper and Alistair Smout; editing by Mark Heinrich)

JO Brueckner, a spokeswoman for Stein’s recount drive, told FoxNews.com that all one hundred and sixty-one,-plus donors will have a say in where the extra money is donated – a task perhaps easier said than done. The campaign has pledged to divvy up the funds to a set of non-partisan organizations. “We don’t have a name for the organizations but we’ll give the donors an option ,” she said during a telephone interview.

The amount of cash given to the groups will be based on a ranked-choice vote which will be made public on Stein’s website in the coming weeks, Brueckner said. Democratic strategist Joe Trippi told The Hill he thought recount efforts were a way for Stein “to stay relevant, raise some money and take the stink off of them.” “Instead of everybody screaming, ‘You made Trump happen,’ she is counting the votes to change that whole narrative.’”

  1. Rejection is great.It makes you more determined for the next onslaught..Always stay the course, cause the tracks only go one way. You eventually will see the light.
    I’m not sure why you bring up that blowhard.

  2. Darrell Brown “…what you want to make of it.” Yes you would have to take this line. It allows you to be creative with regard to motive rather than being constrained by reason rooted in truth.
    What style? I don’t see any style at all … not that she has to have any … but why post pictures of something that’s not there?
    He’s lost it on this issue, but doesn’t have the guts to say so. Wants to let this film speak for him.

  3. Wow, you don’t get the point at all. Look beyond your tiny little world.
    What a wonderfully illogical argument.

  4. Don’t listen to fangirls or fanboys. They can be rather narrow-minded and prejudice to any changes to their precious characters. Always judge for yourself.
    Unfortunately it is unscientific to censor ideas and evidence no matter how bad you think they are. It invokes healthy skeptcism that is at the heart of scienftic inquiry. Maybe these guys are on to something, I better watch this film.
    Patrizio Cavaliere Jeez, you ugly trolls just keep posting the same nonsense.

  5. Oh great, just when I thought we were rid of her drivel.
    Except all the science that shows that there is a clear mechanism for autim to develop from neurotoxins in vaccines like aluminum and mercury. All the science that you know nothing about. But we do.

    Joe…agree!! Only sensible common sense thing to do at the moment.
    Who cares what they think?

  7. I respect how you replied back.

    Oh hell, why not.
