Why Is Donald Trying to Block the Recount in Pennsylvania?

Lawyers for The Donald have filed suit to stop the recount in Pennsylvania:

Attorneys for President-elect Donald Trump have moved to block the vote recount in Pennsylvania, adding to complaints filed to stop similar proceedings in Michigan and Wisconsin.

“Despite being no more than a blip on the electoral radar, Stein has now commandeered Pennsylvania’s electoral process, with an eye toward doing the same to the Electoral College,” the complaint filed Thursday states. “There is no evidence — or even an allegation — that any tampering with Pennsylvania’s voting systems actually occurred.”

Conventional wisdom dictates that the recounts in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin won’t change the outcome in the end. So why is Donald so nervous? Who knows. But yesterday we learned that they’re still counting votes in Pennsylvania, and as of yesterday, Donald’s lead had narrowed by about 20,000 votes — from around 65,000 to 46,000.

And apparently vote counting is continuing there.
