We get asked A LOT about the #Recount in #Michigan. What happened? Why were the DNC's lawyers MIA? Why did Clinton give up without a fight.

This report from 2016, written by a volunteer observer with #RecountMichigan, is well worth a read: medium.com/@nick_sharp/wh…
This account tallies with what we heard from witnesses we interviewed for a report we did for @DemocracyNow: democracynow.org/2016/12/13/gre… #Michigan #Detroit #Flint #Election2016 #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud #VotingRights #CivilRights #Recount #Recount2016
@democracynow The DNC and Clinton’s lawyers were literally missing in action. They did not protect the Black voters’ ballots of #Michigan. Trump’s lawyers prevented the counting of the 75,355 uncounted ballots that would have unquestionably led to loss of a state he "won" by 10,700 votes.
@democracynow The DNC and Clinton’s negligence effectively endorsed Trump’s steal of the Black vote. Why do people always ask me Why? The answer: There is ONE party, the Party of the Cash. The party of rich white folk who don’t want the other party—the poor and minority voters—to have power.
@democracynow The Green Party had the temerity to pay for the counting of the uncounted #Michigan ballots—and Trump had it stopped in a Lansing court while Clinton’s lawyers looked on from the gallery—I ain’t making that up! Watch our full report on the debacle here: gregpalast.com/palast-report-…
@democracynow Progressives will always fight over the wisdom of voting for a 3rd party in swing states. But ALL Americans owe @DrJillStein a vote of thanks for standing up for a full vote count—& before Election Day standing ALONE among candidates against #Kobach’s racist #Crosscheck system.
