The Green Party’s 2016 candidate Jill Stein wants recounts in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, and has raised nearly $5 million so far, supposedly to pay for the effort. But if the recounts don’t happen, Stein and the Green Party will find other uses for the donations:

Before you donate to Green Party candidate Jill Stein‘s effort to demand a recount in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, you may want to read the fine print on her website. So far, she has raised $4.8 million, but take a look at this little clause at the end of donation form:

We cannot guarantee a recount will happen in any of these states we are targeting. We can only pledge we will demand recounts in those states.

If we raise more than what’s needed, the surplus will also go toward election integrity efforts and to promote voting system reform.

That’s “getting the money out of politics,” Bernie-style! Soliciting recount cash to stave off election catastrophe could be the new “carbon credits” on the left for quite some time.
