Green Party’s Jill Stein Requests Recount of Wisconsin Vote

Wisconsin elections officials said that they were “preparing to move forward’ with a recount of that state’s presidential votes, after Green Party candidate Jill Stein and Reform Party candidate Rocky De La Fuente submitted petitions for such an action on Friday.

“The Commission is preparing to move forward with a statewide recount of votes for President of the United States, as requested by these candidates,” said administrator Michael Haas.

“We have assembled an internal team to direct the recount, we have been in close consultation with our county clerk partners, and have arranged for legal representation by the Wisconsin Department of Justice,” he added. “We plan to hold a teleconference meeting for county clerks next week and anticipate the recount will begin late in the week after the Stein campaign has paid the recount fee, which we are still calculating.”

Donald Trump won the state by 22,177 votes, in a surprise upset over Hillary Clinton that helped him pass the 270 electoral votes to win the presidency.

But a group of experts have raised questions over the possibility that some elections systems may have been hacked, based on turnout data. Yet others have said that such a possibility is far-fetched, and there is no evidence as of yet that such a hacking occurred.

The Clinton campaign has not acted on the recount request. Instead, Stein has been raising money to bear the costs of recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. According to CNN, she had raised $5 million by Friday.
