Russia, Recounts and Realizations

You thought the election was over, didn’t you? Well as you may have heard, this one is dying hard.


Jill Stein had appealed for a recount in Michigan and key states that possibly might have swung the election in favor of Hillary Clinton. There was a lot of hope, however, she was denied by an Obama-backed judge on Dec. 9. She is currently calling for the abolition of the Electoral College and continuing her fight.


Meanwhile, The Washington Post dropped the news, that same day, that the CIA has concluded a general consensus that Russia tried to affect the election results. NBC News and The New York Times has confirmed this story as well. Obama is demanding a full investigation and report before he leaves office.


If false, this could escalate tensions with Moscow to a bad level. If true, well, a recount might be needed and Jill Stein won’t need to try for other states.

I am a junior at the University of South Florida. I am specializing in Public Relations while pursuing certificates in Business and Visualization & Design. I hope to one day combine all of these and pursue law in the entertainment and even branch out to other passions in family law. While I am studying to achieve these dreams, I have furthered my collection of coffee cups and obsession with caffeine. I currently work as a barista and love to whip up new ideas, whether it be actual coffee creations or branding ideas. My other hobbies include enjoying short walks to the movies and my computer. This is usually to catch up on the latest and greatest shows. If it's not film, it is music. I love the thrill of listening to live music of my favorite and new bands. These inspire me to discover my individuality and brand, while challenging myself to help others find theirs.
