Pennsylvania State Department says Stein missed recount deadline

Jill Stein has everything she needs to launch a presidential recount. She's got the cash, the grassroots fervor and the spotlight of an adoring media. But there's one thing she needs to overturn Trump's victory: a calendar.

Stein missed Pennsylvania's deadline to file for a voter-initiated recount. That blown deadline is a huge blow for Democrats who have pinned their hopes on recounts in the Keystone State, Michigan and Wisconsin.

"According to Wanda Murren, spokeswoman for the Pennsylvania Department of State," the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Monday, "the deadline for a voter-initiated recount was Monday, Nov. 21."

To keep their hopes alive, Stein has mounted a legal challenge in an attempt to force a recount. While the chances of litigation are uncertain, the vote tally is clear. Trump beat Clinton in Pennsylvania, a feat not accomplished by a Republican since George H.W. Bush in 1988.

Jill Stein doesn't understand the electoral college nor the Constitution so what makes anyone think she read a calendar. (note: and this woman thought she was qualified to be president? Please. 🙀) The deadline was 11/21 and that's before she made her big sweeping claim she wanted a recount to the public. Many are looking into this because she is committing a felony if she purposefully misrepresented her so-called fundraising efforts. Will enjoy watching her dissolve like a pillar of salt. Rightly deserved indeed. 🤔

How confused would you need to be to vote for someone with her credentials?
