From the Jill Stein Campaign: Finally! The epic court battle we've been waiting for
"At the very outset of the recount, we filed a federal lawsuit declaring the state of Pennsylvania is failing to protect its citizens' constitutional right to vote. That suit has finally come up for a hearing, enabling us to utilize our volunteers' painstaking work to challenge Pennsylvania's regime of undemocratic, non-transparent and unaccountable elections".
"In Michigan, Trump's GOP cronies stopped the recount despite - or maybe because of - revelations about major problems with the vote count, particularly in under-resourced black and brown communities.
"But the worst mess was in Pennsylvania, where over 80% of voters use touch-screen machines with no tangible paper backup. These paperless voting machines are so vulnerable to hacking and so difficult to verify that they have been banned in most states.
"To make things worse, Pennsylvania law makes it virtually impossible for citizens to know whether their votes are actually counted. Thousands of volunteers mobilized in days to petition for recounts - only to be thwarted by a nightmare of bureaucracy."
