LANSING, MI -- Michigan's Board of State Canvassers voted 3-1 Wednesday evening to preemptively halt the presidential recount process should a federal judge move to dissolve the order that allowed the recount to start in the first place.
The motion approved by the board, put forward by Republican canvasser Colleen Pero, instructs Michigan Elections Director Chris Thomas to put a stop to the recount if U.S. District Court Judge Mark Goldsmith dissolves a temporary restraining order on the two-day waiting period required by state law after an objection to the recount is filed.
The judge said a recount to test the integrity of the voting system "has never been endorsed by any court."

I find the comments on the article absurd.
99% of them are blaming Trump and the GOP - when all of the cities mentioned in the article are where Clinton won in a landslide.
If I had an account on that site, I would reply, but... eh. This just shows the level of delusion among Clinton supporters.

But she's not done I'm sure now she will claim she's been discriminated against because she appears to be a woman or something like that.
Wisconsin and PA make o difference at this time Trump still has the numbers.
Changing the Electoral College will take at least 11 years and Trump gets re elected then it would be 15 or more to try to get a 2/3 vote to pass it.
I say that because it's not going to come up during the next 4 years then if Trump wins another term it's 8 years then the states have 7 years to vote on it.

I hope that the GOP lawyers in the PA case are smart enough to use that ruling as part of their argument.
HUUUGE NEVADA VOTER FRAUD UNCOVERED? WORSE THAN ACORN
December 1, 2016
Today, Megan Barth interviewed Republican Assembly Candidate for District 15, Stan Vaughan, with actual proof of massive voter fraud in his Clark County district. Vaughan brought into the NEWSMAXTV Las Vegas studio and laid it out for all to see, US postal service certified returned mail from 9,200 voters in District 15.
Many of the people who were listed as deceased are still on the active voter rolls today. Many of the returned mail came back with 5 people living in a vacant lot with no mail receptacle. Edward Snowden, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and dozens of movie stars were registered to vote in District 15 according to Mr. Vaughan. Mr. Vaughan tested a sample of 200 people of the 9,200 return mail and found that 185 of those had indeed voted. Mr. Vaughan and many others have testified that they went to the polls to vote only to be told they had voted already. They were given a provisional ballots which would only be counted if the total vote count was within 1% according to poll supervisors. According to Mr. Vaughan, there were other serious voting system irregularities he documented, including early voting numbers flipping day to day.
A total number of 17,086 votes were cast in District 15 for both Republican and Democrat candidates. 9,200 voters on the voter rolls who, by law, should not be on the voter rolls is a huuge discrepancy. Vaughan reported the certified returned mail issue to Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske, who according to Vaughan, sent the issue back to Clark County to investigate itself. President Donald Trump lost by only 27,000 votes statewide in Nevada. So 9,200 fraudulent voters in one small Assembly district equals 1/3 almost of the total margin.
Megan Barth said “The Main Stream Media attacked Donald Trump this week for claiming there were millions of illegal votes cast. Well it appears Nevada, which has voted for the winner of the Presidency for the past 108 years may have been stolen and must be investigated by the Feds. Not Obama feds but incoming Attorney General Jeff Session must investigate this issue.”

Well, I hope it is really over....for the sake of all the Michigan voters.
I read one report that Stein plans to appeal to the Michigan Supremes.....and tomorrow is Friday.
"In the event that the Supreme Court fails to act, we expect the $970,000 filing fee to be returned to the campaign,” she said.
The fate of Stein's recount fight is now in the hands of the Michigan Supreme Court, which has yet to issue a decision on whether it will hear Stein's argument. Stein is appealing a Michigan Court of Appeals ruling that said she didn't have standing to request a recount because she never stood a chance to win the presidency with her fourth-place finish and 1.07% of the vote. That ruling triggered Wednesday's decision by a federal judge, who upheld the state court's finding and concluded there was no real evidence of foul play and no valid reason to continue the recount.
Attorneys for Jill Stein filed an application for leave to appeal to the Michigan Supreme Court Wednesday morning following a state Court of Appeals ruling ordering the Board of State Canvassers to stop the recount.
The Michigan Supreme Court hasn't said whether it will accept the appeal or not, but it's likely the last legal option for Stein.
