Things got really heated today on Fox News Sunday as host Chris Wallace challenged Green Party presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein on her ongoing mission to see the results of the election recounted in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
Said Wallace, “There’s not a chance in the world here, Dr. Stein, that the vote is going to change in those three states.”
I honestly don't understand why conservatives are so adverse to a recount.
The money has been raised by private citizens, it's not costing the American taxpayer anything, and it's legal. Plus, for weeks Donald Trump ranted that the "system was rigged." Just this week he asserted that there were "millions" of illegal votes in other states.
So what's so bad about looking into these issues?
I don't believe a recount will change the outcome of the election, but I do agree with Dr. Stein that irregularities will always lead to questions unless we actually audit results in our elections.
What harm could there be?
And one more thing - Wallace asserts that Stein is doing exactly what Trump declared before the election in that he said he may or may not accept the results of the election.
The difference between the two is that Trump was saying he might not accept results based on nothing that had happened yet. Stein is acting now, in a perfectly legal manner, based on the research of computer experts who have seen irregularities that don't seem to make sense. Trump's statements before the election are not the same as Stein's after.
