Green Party presidential nominee, Dr. Jill Stein is trying to get a Pennsylvanian Judge to rule that the state’s recounting procedure is in conflict with the Constitution. After receiving more than $7 million to get recounts in three key battleground states after Trump’s win, also briefly assisted by Hillary Clinton’s legal team, no evidence of abnormalities was found.
According to the Daily Caller article, an amended complaint has been filed this week stating that Pennsylvania’s recount procedure violates the Fourteenth Amendment’s due process guarantee, because it contains no mechanism for individual voters to review a record of their ballot after casting their vote on an electronic interface. She argues that voters are left with no verifiable way of checking that their vote was correctly recorded.
Her final point being that no paper trail means that hackers may have compromised the results.
She also argues that:
“In addition, Pennsylvania voters, including the Voter Plaintiffs, were unable to pursue their right to a recount, or to ensure their votes were counted in any way, as a result of arbitrary, unreasonable, byzantine, and absurdly burdensome election rules, as well as Defendants’ conduct set forth below. Nor, absent relief from the Court, will the Voter Plaintiffs be able to ensure their right under Pennsylvania law to a recount in future elections, unburdened by an arbitrary and unreasonable election regime.”
And that there are also First Amendment issues:
“Acting under color of state law, Defendants, by the above, are maintaining and implementing a system of voting that denies Pennsylvania voters the right to vote, to have their votes counted, and to seek recounts/recanvassing of the vote, and that violates the First Amendment,”
