Attorneys representing Jill Stein will likely be in a Harrisburg courtroom Monday to argue why Pennsylvania should recount votes statewide that were cast in the presidential election, and her campaign says precinct-level recounts could begin as early as today.
A new order from the Commonwealth Tuesday in a lawsuit funded by Stein set that Dec. 5 hearing and a deadline of noon Friday for Pennsylvania’s electors to respond to the suit. The electors are the people who comprise the state’s delegation to the electoral college, and will officially select the next president on Dec. 19. A conclusive decision on the suit must be reached by Dec. 13, according to the order. Here's the latest on the proposed recount.
Yesterday was all about the $15 minimum wage. Workers in Philly joined others in cities nationwide to protest for a living wage and better benefits. They started at a McDonald's in North Philly and continued protesting in Center City last night. This is the fourth year of Fight for 15, and things aren't looking much better in Philly. Many local politicians favor a raise to $15, but Harrisburg needs plenty of convincing.
Philly-based designers and makers like jeweler Habitual Threads and denim fashion house Senpai + Kohai are putting on a holiday show full of unique finds. Cocktails and snacks will be served.

Sure, it's good and all to buy a Christmas tree at Home Depot or the mom-and-pop shop on the corner but sometimes it feels better to get an ax and cut down a nice evergreen tree on your own. And if you want to do that, you're in luck! Here are the area farms where you can chop down a Christmas tree.
The answer is both, depending on whom you're asking. The Green Party presidential candidate's attempt for a recount has stirred up all of the opinions, from a former Obama advisor ("mind boggling") to Trump supporters (Stein is a "fraud") to Nate Silver, whose opinion is essentially, eh, why not? See what other experts and politicians are saying.
