Clearly, Hilary supporters are stuck in stage one – the “denial stage” because this is becoming a circus of stupidity.
Three Hillary supporters are suing the state of Florida, claiming Hillary actually won the state and they want a recount.
Three voters in Florida filed a lawsuit in state court seeking a recount of the votes in November’s presidential election. The voters claim that Hillary Clinton really won Florida, but problems including hacking, faulty voting machines, and voters being turned away from the polls led to a Trump victory. They sued Governor Rick Scott, Donald Trump, State Attorney General Pamela Bondi, and 29 Republican presidential electors in the state.
The lawsuit, filed by law firm Clint Curtis & Associates, demands a hand recount of every paper ballot in the state. In a press release, the firm said that in addition to the voting problems mentioned above, the disparity between pre-election polling numbers and the vote totals “cast suspicion” on the results. The complaint also alleges that “tens of thousands of illegal votes were improperly counted,” and that there were tens of thousands of “legal votes cast throughout the state of Florida that were improperly rejected.” The lawsuit claims that had the votes in Florida been counted properly, Clinton would have won.
“This is an election where pretty much everyone knew what the results were going to be – except they were completely the opposite,” Clint Curtis said. “If we can’t get a real count of the votes for this election, then we have lost our democracy. We will never be able to challenge a close election again.”
While the complaint says, “There is massive evidence of electronic voting machine malfunctioning,” it does not actually provide any such evidence. Instead, it uses a long list of opinions from various individuals regarding the computer system’s security in general, each drawing the conclusion that Florida’s election could have been hacked.
The lawsuit also points to the number of ballots that were counted that did not count for the Presidential election because they either had multiple candidates selected or no candidate selected. The complaint says that the in this year’s election, 1.67 percent of the votes were considered invalid for this reason, compared to 0.75 percent in 2008 and 2012. The lawsuit calls this “extremely suspicious,” concluding that it must be due to foul play. It does not take into account that both Trump and Clinton were wildly unpopular candidates, and that more voters than usual may have chosen not to vote for anyone for President this year, while still casting votes for other offices.
President Barack Obama’s family vacation to Hawaii in 2015 cost taxpayers more than $4.8 million.
Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch obtained Secret Service records through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request which revealed the agency spent $1.2 million on the trip. Adding that to previously-obtained expense records, the group found the total cost of the Obamas’ trip to Hawaii last December came in at over $4.8 million.
The group has also tallied the total spent on the Obama family vacations during his eight years as president, which comes to $85 million.
Although the Obamas vacationed for 17 days, the Secret Service arrived before the First Family, bringing the Secret Service’s accommodation bill for 19 nights to $1.46 million. Another $165,893 was spent on 103 rental cars throughout the vacation, as well as $68,964 on air and rail expenses.
“The Secret Service and the Air Force are being abused by unnecessary travel,” Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton claimed. “Unnecessary presidential travel for fundraising and luxury vacations on the taxpayers’ dime would be a good target for reform for the incoming Trump administration.”
It remains to be seen whether Trump will choose to forgo luxury vacations during his administration.
Judicial Watch filed an FOIA lawsuit against the Secret Service in May after it failed to respond to its FOIA requests sent in January.
The group is known for filing FOIA requests and lawsuits to expose politicians. It was set up in the 1994 during Bill Clinton’s presidency and filed more than 18 lawsuits against the administration.
The group managed to have a number of Clinton’s State Department emails released through such lawsuits and continues to attempt to have all related emails released.
On Monday, it filed a motion to unseal videos of depositions taken during the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s use of a private server as secretary of state.
The group’s claims against the Obamas’ foreign trips have been criticized in the past. In 2011, they implied First Lady Michelle Obama tricked taxpayers into funding an African holiday rather than “the professed purpose” of an official visit to further education.
“This trip was as much an opportunity for the Obama family and friends to go on a safari as it was a trip intended to advance the administration’s agenda in Africa,” Judicial Watch said at the time.
It pointed to Obama’s “private family safari” which was in fact paid for by the Obamas themselves. Media Matters highlighted the fact that former first lady Laura Bush also enjoyed an African safari on her visit to the continent in 2005, which the group did not criticize.
