The recount effort by Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein in three crucial U.S. states came to an end on Monday, after weeks of legal wrangling yielded only one electoral review in Wisconsin. A U.S. judge in Pennsylvania rejected Stein’s request for a recount and an examination of that state’s voting machines for evidence of hacking in the Nov. 8 …
We re-visit the nightmare that has become THE GREAT AMERICAN NON-RECOUNT.
In an election where the “loser” won by 2.6 million votes and the “winner” thinks he was robbed of 3 million, the bloviating Democrats and corporate media mavens have united AGAINST a recount.
Meanwhile it’s been left to Jill Stein and the Greens to try to get one done in a vote count obviously saturated with theft, fraud and utter hypocrisy.
So we are once again joined by Green attorney ROBERT FITRAKIS, filmmaker “(the Best Democracy Money Can Buy”) and investigative reporter GREG PALAST and by Alternet election correspondent STEVE ROSENFELD, to sort through the Gorey details.
If you care about what’s left of our democracy, don’t miss this show….but you might want to drink some nerve-claiming herbal tea as you do….

We continue yesterday’s discussion about the Green Party’s puzzling demand for vote recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
Dr. Jill Stein, the Green Party’s presidential candidate in the 2016 election who got 1 percent of the popular vote and zero electoral votes, last week stunned the political world and even her running mate, Ajamu Baraka, with the announcement that she would seek a vote recount in three states—Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania—with slim voter margins between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton. Stein said the effort was to “protect the integrity of the vote,” hinting that it was possible that Trump’s victory in these states might have been the result of rigging or fraud. Millions were raised to fund the recounts.
THE RECOUNTS ARE UNDER ATTACK!!!
