We are getting a recount, and it wasn’t Hillary Clinton who requested it…but it is Hillary who will benefit the most from it!!
Jill Stein’s presidential campaign announced on Wednesday that it plans to file for recounts in three key states if it can raise enough money. In a statement Stein said, “After a divisive and painful presidential race, reported hacks into voter and party databases and individual email accounts are causing many Americans to wonder if our election results are reliable.”
Stein wants to request recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania — states that were critical to Donald Trump’s victory. Trump carried Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, and is likely to win Michigan, although the state has not yet been officially called.
A Stein spokeswoman said the campaign has not yet filed the official paperwork for the recounts. The campaign needs $2 million to pay for the filing fees and the actual recount process, and it has set up a fundraising website to collect the money.
The subject of recounts in these states first arose late Tuesday when New York Magazine reported that election security experts were urging Hillary Clinton’s campaign to contest the results there, citing suspicious results.
