Jill Stein Is Scamming Gullible Liberals For MILLIONS Over An Electoral Recount!!
This is one of the most delicious stories this Thanksgiving – Jill Stein has been blamed by liberals for screwing over Hillary in the election, and now they’re accusing her of scamming money for a recount!!!

So a few days ago she announced that she was going to do what cowardly Hillary wouldn’t, and call for a recount in the election. Then she began raising money. Her first target was only a million dollars – now it’s seven million!! But – she announced that they raised enough money for a recount yesterday – why are they still raising money?
From NBC News:
Green Party nominee Jill Stein appeared to have met her initial fundraising goal early Thursday for recounts of the vote in three key swing states that went to Donald Trump — Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
However, she quickly raised the sum being sought by another $2 million. “Raising money to pay for the first round so quickly is a miraculous feat and a tribute to the power of grassroots organizing,” a message on her website read.
THEN people realized that the fine print says that maybe probably kinda the money she raised wasn’t all gonna go to the recount:

Fine print: This could be a scam, stupid. LOL!!
And then she changed the goalposts to raise more money:

WHOOPS!! Isn’t asking for money for a cause and then putting that money elsewhere also called a SCAM and a FRAUD? LOL!!
Then there’s this:
No recount petition has been filed by the Jill Stein campaign with @WI_Elections at this time. We will issue press release if/when filed.

Here are some more reactions from Twitter:
I really wish Jill Stein had not waited until after the election to be so concerned about a few thousand votes tipping the election to Trump

A lot of liberals who made fun of Republicans for letting Ben Carson grift them are now being grifted by Jill Stein.

Jill Stein's racket is incredible:
Step 1: Cost the Dem the Election
Step 2: wait for Trump panic
Step 3: Bilk millions for recount.

Not saying this Jill Stein thing is a scam, but if it were a scam, it would probably look a lot like this. https://t.co/pg4eAuFQ4h

There is no way that Jill Stein is actually going to do all this by Monday, the deadline for a recount in PA — the fundraising is a ruse. pic.twitter.com/tIFPsuUsiD

Folks giving Jill Stein money "for a recount" are gonna be ripped off.

Jill Stein has found a new low in stealing money from the public raising money for cause that has no substance or validity & she knows it. pic.twitter.com/tm8t4hW3Dr

Plus, MI is already "recounted" and virtually settled, which means it's over. I like Jill Stein but this could just be a fundraising scam.
— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) November 24, 2016
This is a scam.
1) Foremost a consultant money grab.
2) Jill Stein's attempt to be relevant.
3) Won't change outcome of election. https://t.co/3ZR1obtMbX

Trump is oddly silent on the fact Jill Stein raised $2.5mil yesterday for a recount in WI, MI and PA. This will happen now. #AuditTheVote

Obama: "A recount? By Jill Stein?" Biden: "Yeah, I gave her a call."
Biden: "Wait'll ya see Trump's face."

It really seems like she’s just cashing in on the anger:

In less than 24 hrs Jill Stein has $1,802,889 raised for recounts in WI, MI and PA. She needs $2.5m. It's happening: https://t.co/3MkswN5vwV

Jill Stein is the friend who ruins your wedding but really shows up for you during the divorce.

Oh well, at least it’s entertaining. And we finally discovered something that the GOP is better than the Democrats at – our scam artist got into office while their scam artists are jacking their supporters in a fake attempt to get him out!!
