Inauguration day isn’t coming quick enough for me. Inauguration day is set for Jan. 20, 2017. Today, is 12/4/2016. Jill Stein, a nobody candidate (Green party) wants a recount in 3 states, she got it in WI, but looks like she has to work a little harder to get it in PA. It is said that she is being backed by Billionaire George Soros and HRC (Hillary R. Clinton). It is also said, she is not being backed by the mainstream voters.

Jill Stein says she’ll ‘escalate’ Pennsylvania recount case after earlier plans to drop it
Stein on Saturday cited a major cost placed on voters due to a state court ruling that says the voters requesting the recount must pay a $1 million bond. But shortly after midnight Sunday Stein tweeted about plans to continue on the recount bid.
“On Monday, I will escalate #Recount2016 in PA and file to demand a statewide recount on constitutional grounds. The people deserve answers,” she wrote.

Jill Stein needs help
Stein can’t simply ask for a recount in Pennsylvania. She needs Keystone State residents to ask for one for her.
That’s because for a recount to happen — barring a credible accusation of voter fraud ruled by the courts — three voters in each district must petition the results through an affidavit. Philadelphia alone, with its 1,600 voting divisions, would need requests from nearly 5,000 people to undergo a recount. The whole state would likely need about 30,000 volunteers. Stein got about 49,000 votes in PA.
Through Facebook and Twitter, she’s been asking for volunteers and has set up a process showing interested parties how to file an affidavit. As of 11 a.m. Sunday, she tweeted 1,500 Pennsylvanians had volunteered.
The PA GOP claims conspiracy
But not over possible voter fraud. Instead, the party is claiming Stein and Clinton are in cahoots. In a statement released Sunday afternoon, the Pennsylvania Republicans noted Stein lost to Trump by nearly 48 percentage points and “as such it is clear that she does not have a good faith basis to challenge the results She is clearly serving as a stalking horse for the Clinton campaign that once again will not take responsibility for its actions.”
With Pennsylvania on the verge of a recount, Donald Trump has gotten a little testy. As he tends to do in times like these, he vented on Twitter. The President-elect tweeted previous comments from Clinton saying, “We have to accept the results and look to the future.” He then claimed, citing no evidence, millions of people voted illegally and major fraud had occurred in Virginia, California and New Hampshire.
The Pennsylvania problem
Should a significant number of counties get the requisite number of petitions, the recount process could be arduous. This is because many Pennsylvania polling stations don’t produce paper copies.
For a recount, each machine in the state would have to be opened and re-analyzed. Stein is also seeking volunteers to observe this recount process, especially in Pennsylvania’s smaller counties.
