Ever since some data analysts and professors stated there were some voting irregularities in the results of three swing states, people have been calling for a recount.
Trump won all three states, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, but just slightly.
Trump won Michigan by 10,704 votes. (A winning margin of 0.3%)
Trump won Wisconsin by 27,257 votes. (A winning margin of 0.7%)
Trump won Pennsylvania by 68,236 votes. (A winning margin of 1.2%)
There were calls for Hillary Clinton to initiate the request for the recount and audit. But it turns out Hillary didn’t have to…Jill Stein did it for her.
From Jill Stein’s website:
The Stein/Baraka Green Party Campaign is launching an effort to ensure the integrity of our elections. With your help, we are raising money to demand recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania—three states where the data suggests a significant need to verify machine-counted vote totals.
This effort to ensure election integrity is in your hands! We need to raise over $2 million by this Friday, 4pm central just to make it in Wisconsin. In true grassroots fashion, we’re turning to you, the people, and not big-money corporate donors to make this happen.
Here are the filing fees and deadlines for each state:
Wisconsin: $1.1 million by Nov 25
Pennsylvania: $0.5 million by Nov 28
Michigan: $0.6 million by Nov 30
And within hours, Stein’s website had raised the $2.5 million, and continues to raise more (as there will be additional expenses required for both the recount and audit).
Hey, it’s a long shot, but we’ll take it!!
