And, what cavalier BS.....
“Most of that cost, if not all of it, should be handled by the fee,” Stein said. “And if some of it is not, you know, democracy is not free.”
So the OP claimed 1 Million?...Which ended up being BS...AGAIN...
“This court cannot allow a dilatory and frivolous request for a recount by an aggrieved party to silence all Michigan votes for president,” Deputy Attorney General Matthew Schneider wrote in a court filing on Schuette’s behalf.
“Michigan voters rejected Stein’s candidacy by massive margins but her refusal to accept that state-verified result poses an expensive and risky threat to hard-working taxpayers and abuses the intent of Michigan law,” Schuette said in a statement. “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.”

I fully support validating our voting process to preserve the integrity of our votes.
I think that our system should require photo ID, and a process to be sure that everyone who is registered is a living citizen.
And any electronic system should be strictly controlled and tested to be sure they are fair.
However, the way that this recount is occurring, and the motives behind it, do not have anything to do with the above.
Stein waited until the last hour of the last day in each state to request a recount.
The funding of her efforts is suspicious.
She only requested recounts in the 3 states Trump won by a small margin, and that would help Clinton if they are negated.
She demands hand counts, to slow down the process.
In Dane County WI, a strongly democratic count, they are hand-counting. Stein and Clinton people are slow walking the process to the point they may not meet the deadline for electors to vote.
Now she wants to do the same thing to MI and PA.
In PA she is taking it a step further, and is attempting to invalidate the entire election in court by declaring it illegal.
Her motives have nothing to do with a fair vote. In fact, it is just the opposite.
She is colluding with Clinton to STEAL THE VOTE from WI, MI, and PA - totally.
She wants to stop our electors from having a vote at all.
That is the opposite of giving people a fair vote.
The federal filing comes after both Attorney General Bill Schuette and Trump filed separate motions in state court to prevent the recount from happening.
On Friday, Mr. Trump filed a lawsuit in the Michigan Court of Appeals in an attempt to block the recount there, which had not yet begun. “If the Bureau of Elections moves forward with the recount, it will waste the State’s scarce resources, create a logistical nightmare for counties across the State, and assure that Michigan’s Electoral College voters will not be counted,” the filing said.
