HARRISBURG, Pa. — The Green Party is dropping its court case seeking a statewide recount of Pennsylvania’s Nov. 8 presidential election. It had wanted to explore whether voting machines and systems had been hacked and the election result manipulated.

The decision came Saturday, two days before a court hearing in the case. Lawyers for the Green Party-backed voters who filed the case say they can’t afford the $1 million bond ordered by the court by 5 p.m. Monday. However, Green Party-backed efforts to analyze election software in scattered precincts are continuing.

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein has spearheaded a recount effort in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, states where Republican Donald Trump won narrowly over Democrat Hillary Clinton. Trump and the Pennsylvania GOP had opposed the recount.

    Can’t we just split the country down the middle? We’ll put all the bleeding heart libs, BLM, illegals, and whatever other freeloaders wana live on one side, and hard working people who support the police on the other.

    I want a recount in Nevada and California. If we are going to waste money let’s do it the states that are least believable.

    Ok. If PA isn’t doing a recount then why are we wasting money with WI and possibly MI? Even if Hillary somehow wins those states, Trump still wins PA and the electoral college.

    This is all done to discredit Trump, but I think it makes the Democrats look even worse than they did. Looser is on Hillary’s forehead and she will never wash it off.
