FYI - This FB message from Jill Stein just came in regarding Michigan.

Yesterday, the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed a federal District Judge's order and made clear that the presidential recount in Michigan should continue as planned. The ruling dealt a blow to Trump and Republicans in Michigan, who appealed to the court to try to stop Michigan's historic recount.

Yesterday, the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed a federal District Judge's order and made clear that the presidential recount in Michigan should continue as planned. The ruling dealt a blow to Trump and Republicans in Michigan, who appealed to the court to try to stop Michigan's historic recount.
Matthew Brinckerhoff, a lawyer for the Stein campaign, said the following in response to the ruling:
"Today, Trump and his GOP allies in Michigan tried everything in the book to stop the recount, and they failed. This recount is continuing in spite of their efforts to suppress the vote.

"We applaud this decision by the Sixth Circuit, and look forward to continuing to fight for the rights of Michiganders to ensure their votes are recounted in a timely and thorough manner."

While the Michigan Court of Appeals also ruled this afternoon and directed the Board of State Canvassers to reject Dr. Stein's recount petition, they did not order the recount to be stopped because, as numerous experts have pointed out, their hands are tied by a U.S. District Court ruling ordering it to commence. Instead, the issue of the recount's constitutionality will likely return to Judge Goldsmith tomorrow, as the statewide recount in Michigan proceeds as planned.

1. This whole process needs to be covered extensively by the media

What is more important than election theft?

8. media's too busy, lots of Trump ass to kiss

the Trump campaign sent a clear message to the newsmedia: give us favorable coverage and LOTS of it, or lose your access
going forward, i would assume that message has been received and understood very clearly by those whose jobs depend on it

9. so the rethugs have passed an increase to the recount

And made it retroactive. Now the greens will owe money yet we can't count the very ballots that would probably flip the state to blue. What a bunch of thieves!

What would drumpf do?

10. The largest flip in recent history was about 1,200 votes.

What links can you give that will help me understand how Michigan can be flipped with a 10,000 vote discrepancy? I'm not against a recount, but it feels like Lucy putting the football down yet again for us Democrats.

12. I heard about that, but it's not clear why they weren't counted, and why some were

counted multiple times. Can't we get anything right?
