The vice-president of the Manhattan Republican Party Brian Morgenstern told Fox News Channel’s Lauren Green that Jill Stein’s efforts to recount election votes in battleground states is a scam.
“It is a scam. It’s an effort to build a fund-raising list. And a very effective one at that, I might add. Because they raised millions of dollars over the course of just a couple of days and have increased the goal subsequently as they’ve smashed their previous goals. Look, we’re not talking about close margins here. It’s 10,000 votes in one state, 20,000 in another, 70,000 votes in another. Recounts generally produce some little, a little bit of disparity.”
“Right, but not enough to make a difference in this…”
“Not enough to make a difference. And it’s not going to happen. This is a fund-raising list building effort that is a scam. And it’s hypocritical considering the fact that the Democrats leading into the election were hammering Donald Trump over the head saying, ‘You have to accept the results of the election!’ Well now the shoe is on the other foot and you know, here we are.”
