Evidently ponying up $7.9 Million was too much of a task, but Team Trump managed to scrape together $3 Million (sorry Rudy, not everybody can get paid) and they’re asking Wisconsin to recount in Milwaukee and Dane counties, which are both heavily Democratic. Biden beat Trump by 477,455 to 213,157.

This is being done for two reasons, gin up donations, and drag this out as long as possible to keep the base fully engaged. Even if Trump flipped the state, which he won’t, it wouldn’t change the outcome of the election. And that’s not the purpose of this. The purpose of this is to fleece the rubes and launch the media empire.

I’m not sure how opposed I am to this. Opposed to the reasoning, yes. But the recount itself has a pretty high probability of producing a few net more votes for Biden and making Trump look even weaker and more of a loser.

Better spent there than if the devil goes down to Ga.

How can they profit from this grift? Surely this $3 million expenditure will wipe out any incoming monies. No?

They tell their mailing list about it and ask for recount money (much of which goes to campaign debt).

PJ,
And then directly into Trump’s pocket.

Maybe. But I am sure they are banking on some major grift/stupidity.

Funny how easy it is to spend/waste other people’s money……I guess money really is no object when it’s not coming out of your pocket.

Recounts only make sense when the vote is close, not when your opponent has beaten you 2:1.

They want to find something, anything, they can use to file to have a lot of votes tossed.

I thought the states had been certified and the GSA was sitting on her hands for Trump to hold up Transition funding and process … since there is NO reason to recount and they did not provide nearly enough funding for the recount and the people in the EC are NOT going to flip, is this even going to fly? Could election system in Wisconsin through the AG’s office, just say STFU and sit in the corner …? And Rudy is not even a legal court-based lawyer, [no longer a BAR member]?

Grifting the rubes might be what he intends but these guys while they may be rabid, raucous and fanatical it stops short of giving money to the cause. What was the number of votes? 74 million? And yet Trump’s campaign couldn’t raise any money towards the end. The rubes just enjoy the chaos and the entertainment this made for TV president offers, and perhaps they feel like they are part of some grand reality tv show but it seems that’s where it stops. “You want me to donate wh-a-a-a-t?”

Yeah, it’s different when it comes to giving up their beer money.

Yeah, it’s different if they have to give up their beer money.
