Continuing the Green Revolution

The Green Party of Knox County December 9, 2016 The Fire Next Time Although wildfires are a natural occurrence, the drought that seized the Southern US this fall has been anything but normal.

Jill's Press Conference and Federal Update

Jill Stein was in Pennsylvania to meet the media and to show her support for the incredible effort of the Pennsylvania recount volunteers. Dr. Stein continues to express the need for voting results that can be verified, and for election audits to prove that ALL votes are counted. Her visit was timed to coincide with the Federal Hearing in Philadelphia, in which we are asking for a recount of the entire state as a matter of constitutional guarantees of free and fair elections. Jill also explained the blatant continuation of "electoral Jim Crow" through the Michigan recount. It turns out that in Detroit and Flint there are over 75,000 ballots where voters appeared, but cast NO vote for ANY presidential candidate. This is glaring on its face, and surely demonstrates why a recount is needed there, yet those very ballots have been declared ineligible for recounting. Dr. Stein called this outrageous and vowed to fight as long as needed to see these issues addressed and resolved. Despite the cold and raw weather in Philadelphia, Jill was surrounded by the warmth and support of about 50 supporters. Continue reading
