JUST IN: Jill Stein gets GOOD news in Michigan…
Yes, she’s still going. The candidate least likely to have won last month’s president election is still contesting the results, nearly a month later.
And today, Green Party candidate Jill Stein is celebrating a victory of sorts in Michigan, after a judge ordered the recount there to begin.
This comes despite Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette’s lawsuit to stop a recount. As we reported Friday, Schuette argued,“We have asked the court to end the recount which Stein is pursuing in violation of Michigan laws that protect the integrity of our elections. It is inexcusable for Stein to put Michigan voters at risk of paying millions and potentially losing their voice in the Electoral College in the process.”
Nonetheless, today U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith issued an order Monday morning for the state of Michigan to begin the process of recounting their ballots immediately.
