Following Jill Stein’s announcement that she is pushing for a vote recount in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, she is receiving backlash from over 200 Green Party leaders who have signed a statement opposing the recount.
The statement said,
“The decision to pursue a recount was not made in a democratic or a strategic way, nor did it respect the established decision making processes and structures of the Green Party of the United States (GPUS). The recount has created confusion about the relationship between the Green and Democratic parties because the states chosen for the recount are only states in which Hillary Clinton lost,” the statement reads. “There were close races in other states such as New Hampshire and Minnesota where Clinton won, but which were not part of the recount.”
