19. She's an anti-hero. If she'd been serious, she wouldn't have waited till after the PA deadline

to apply, and she'd have been much more honest with her supporters about the odds of winning her court case.

Instead, she collected $2.5 million earmarked for the PA audit she knew wasn't going to happen in PA and then just kept it -- and kept plugging for more millions toward the other audits.

I realize that there are problems with voter suppression, hackable machines, etc., but Jill Stein was never going to overturn the election with those three states -- because the PA audit was never going to happen -- and she should have been more honest with the people who were donating to her.

For example, she first said she needed a few million to do the three audits -- and then as soon as she got the requested amount, she immediately announced that that would only cover one audit (the one in PA that never ended up taking place), and now she needed another two million. Every time she reached a goal she'd suddenly discover a need for even more, till she'd collected $6 million dollars.

That's what this was all about. And so she not only lured progressives into voting for her and helping DT, she earned a big pile of money from her audit scheme. And she was lucky, because she might not have been able to pay all her campaign bills otherwise. If you look at the post-election disbursements, many of those were for expenses incurred before the election. But she only had $58K cash in hand at that point. I wonder how she'd have paid all her bills if she hadn't thought up the audit money-maker?
