    Hillary Clinton gets more votes than any candidate ever

    Hillary Clinton is not only widening her lead in the popular vote but also gaining more votes than any candidate in history.

    As the votes from the election keep coming in and the process of hand-counting ballots starts in several states, Hillary Clinton is not only widening her lead in the popular vote but also gaining more votes than any candidate in history.

    I would hope so as the population of the US as of November 30, 2016, has a total resident population of 325million VS 2008 304million increase of 21 million in 8 years. Think that might have had something to do with the numbers? Next election will probably increase.

    Mich. owes Jill Stein a refund since recount stopped

    Stein had to pay $973,250 to count Michigan’s 7,786 in-person and absentee voting precincts. Now, with only a fraction of the recount completed, Michigan’s Secretary of State is prepared to refund a portion of that amount.

    But the Michigan Republican Party, Trump and the Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette have fought Stein's efforts on a number of fronts, arguing she had no standing to seek a recount that would cost Michigan taxpayers an estimated $5 million, that there was no proof but rather made-up fears of fraud or hacking, and that she was abusing the state's recount law. Specifically, they argued, Michigan's recount law was meant to change the outcome of an election for a truly aggrieved candidate, not to audit a state's election process.

    Stein's lawyers have argued that the recount must continue, stressing that it has shown numerous voting problems across the state, particularly in Detroit, where more than half of the precincts' ballots cannot be recounted because of problems with how the ballots were accounted for or how ballot containers were sealed. They also argued that Stein is an aggrieved party if she participated in an election that was plagued with mistakes or fraud — even if she didn't stand to win.
