That’s how Jill Stein’s recount effort in the Keystone State ended.
U.S. District Judge Paul Diamond rejected any notion that voting machines were hacked and stated that completing a recount by tomorrow’s deadline would be impossible.
“Pennsylvania’s election system is stacked against voters. Both the technology by which voters cast ballots, as well as the byzantine and burdensome laws determining recounts in the state, are a national disgrace,” responded Jill Stein. “The process underway in Pennsylvania this week is hardly an effective or comprehensive recount. Despite citizens across this state stepping up and demanding their right to verify the vote, every obstacle imaginable – legal, bureaucratic and political – has been thrown in their face. Pennsylvanians’ constitutional and civil rights to have their voices heard and their votes counted have been stripped from right under them.”
All objections must be heard by December 13th as all electors will cast their votes on the 19th. The full electoral college totals will be tabulated before both houses of Congress on January 6th.
