Hillary Clinton and Jill Stein’s Refusal to Accept Election Results Could Cost Taxpayers $4 Million

On Election Night, Hillary Clinton refused to acknowledge what was already obvious. She was going to lose the presidential election to Republican nominee Donald Trump. Hillary didn’t even have enough respect for her supporters to show up at her own event that night to say thank you. This was after months of saying that if Trump failed to accept the results of the election, when she thought she would win, would be unAmerican.

The next day, Hillary actually delivered a concession speech in which she appeared to take the high road, even encouraging her supporters to give Donald Trump a chance to lead since he was now the President-elect.

“We have seen that our nation is more deeply divided than we thought. But I still believe in America and I always will. And if you do, then we must accept this result and then look to the future. Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead.”

Fast-forward to today. Hillary Clinton has joined up with Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein in calling for a recount of ballots in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. Unable or unwilling to accept the results of the election, Clinton and Stein are alleging that the voting machines were hacked by the Russians in order to help Donald Trump win the election.

Never mind that there is no evidence of hacking. If they say it is so and cry and moan about a “rigged system,” the very thing Trump was ridiculed by the Left for alleging prior to the election, then it could make it so….at least in the eyes and minds of some.

Stein and Hillary are demanding a hand recount in Michigan and it has been granted. Despite Jill Stein raising nearly $7 million in a matter of weeks for “recount efforts,” more than Jill Stein raised in over a year for her presidential campaign, taxpayers in Michigan will be stuck with a $4 million bill to cover the resources necessary to complete the recount by the mandated date of December 13.

While Jill Stein’s campaign wrote a check for the mandatory fee of $973,250, the recount of the 4.8 million ballots will actually cost close to $5 million. Despite the massive amount of money that Hillary Clinton raised, there is no indication that she is chipping in for the recount. So, taxpayers will have to foot the bill.

Perhaps Hillary should be reminded of her scathing words to Donald Trump during one of the presidential debates in which she proclaimed accepting the election results, even if you do not like them, is what should be expected of anyone standing on the debate stage. Of course, that was when Hillary thought she was going to win, despite the awful, corrupt candidate that she was.

There is one glaring thing, however, that Hillary Clinton got wrong in her rant. She proclaimed that “that’s not how our democracy works.”

We are not a democracy, Hillary. We are a representative republic. The left, however, has been working for decades to convince people that we are a democracy where majority rules. That is one of the reasons the media is constantly giving an update on how much Hillary is leading Trump in the popular vote, as votes continue to be tallied in California.

The popular vote is irrelevant. The President of the United States is elected via the electoral college in order to give states with smaller populations an equal voice. Otherwise, California, New York, Texas, and Florida would always decide the presidential election and the rest of the country would be subject to their will.

Clinton biographer Ed Klein had an interesting take on why he believes Clinton has joined in on the recall efforts, as relayed to him by sources within the Clinton camp. If he is correct, then it will show that Hillary Clinton is an even more narcissistic and pathetic person than many people thought.

Why did Hillary Clinton join Jill Stein, the Green Party’s oddball presidential nominee, in asking for a recount of the votes in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania when everyone knows that such a recount won’t change the outcome of the 2016 election?

Part of the answer is that people close to Hillary—Huma Abedin, Chelsea Clinton, and Sidney Blumenthal—encouraged her to ask for a recount as a way of lifting her spirits.

“She is weepy, looks ten years older and is very whiny,” said one of Hillary’s closest friends. “She has been drinking wine pretty heavily, much more than usual. She mopes around all day, swimming in a sea of recriminations and complaining that her campaign managers were ‘incompetent,’ Bill and Chelsea ‘didn’t work hard enough,’ FBI Director Comey was ‘in league with Trump.’”

In other words, according to this source, Hillary Clinton is wasting $4 million of taxpayer money to stroke her enormous ego.
