As Jill Stein’s recount effort continues, it seems the total cost of the recount effort keeps climbing. As the total reaches the “goal” suddenly there are new costs associated with the effort. One has to wonder if they have no idea what they’re doing, or if they’re trying to bleed dry the disenfranchised Hillary supporters of their hard earned money.
Now, as Jill approaches her latest $7mm target she has decided to move the goal posts once more by raising her “goal” to $9.5mm. Meanwhile, like in the past, Stein attributed the incremental cash needs to higher costs…this time courtesy of higher than expected recount fees from the state of Wisconsin.
Below are screen shots of the incremental increase in the recount effort costs. Note how the increase has been due to unexpected fees, and attorney costs.
November 24, 2016 at 3:46AM – In the beginning, Stein figured she needed a total of $2.5mm to fund her recount efforts. That figure included $2.2mm for the actual filing fees and presumably another $0.3mm for legal fees and other costs.
November 24, 2016 at 1:20PM – Then, just 12 hours later, after the cash just kept flowing in, Stein figured she needed at least another $2mm as her fundraising goal was raised to $4.5mm in total. Of course, the filing fees of $2.2mm didn’t change but the “attorney’s fees” apparently surged by about 300% and the total costs of the effort skyrocketed to $6-7mm.
November 25, 2016 at 6:11AM – Now, just this morning as Stein approaches $5mm in total donations, her overall fundraising goal has surged once again and now stands at $7mm.
So, with nearly $5mm raised so far, the question is no longer whether recounts will occur in WI, MI and PA but just how much Jill Stein will be able to drain from the pockets of disaffected Hillary supporters to fund her long-shot efforts.
All that said, here is Jill Stein admitting to CNN that she has absolutely no evidence of election hacking….even though she asks that you please keep sending your money anyway.
