Stein: Recount Not an Effort to Overturn Election Outcome

Former Green Party candidate Jill Stein is using her Pennsylvania recount effort to “line her pockets” with cash from fearful supporters, President-elect Donald Trump’s lawyer said in a court filing.

Stein, who garnered 1 percent of the state’s votes, is raising funds from people she “scared into believing that Pennsylvania’s electoral process was hijacked by nameless foreign entities,” attorney Lawrence Tabas said in a filing Thursday in federal court in Philadelphia. “It would be bad enough if she were wasting only her own time and resources as part of her electoral farce.”
