A few weeks ago we wrote about “The Mysterious Case Of Jill Stein’s Surging Recount Costs.” Within that post we noted that each time Stein got close to reaching her stated fundraising goal, new costs would mysteriously surface causing her to raise her targets higher and higher. After starting with a total fundraising goal of just $2.5mm on November 24th, Stein’s fundraising target ballooned to $7.0mm by the very next day as funds poured in from disaffected Hillary supporters.
Now, as Jill approaches her latest $7mm target she has decided to move the goal posts once more by raising her “goal” to $9.5mm. Meanwhile, like in the past, Stein attributed the incremental cash needs to higher costs…this time courtesy of higher than expected recount fees from the state of Wisconsin.
