Her middle name should be ‘Pain In My A**’. Honestly, Jill…did you really think you had a chance? Hillary is most likely encouraging Jill to challenge Trump. I bet some of that $5MIL came from the Clintons themselves.
Wisconsin will recount its presidential election votes after coming under pressure from trounced Green Party candidate Jill Stein.
The state’s elections commission announced its plan to start recounting ballots ‘late next week’ after receiving a petition from Stein on Friday.
Stein has raised more than $5million over the past two days for recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania amid claims the election result had been tampered with.
A recount in Wisconsin will do little for her own chances in the state despite her ongoing crusade. Stein won only 1 percent of the vote in Wisconsin compared to Donald Trump’s 47 and Hillary Clinton’s 46.
She is however insisting on a recount, claiming voting machines used in some states were susceptible to cyber attack and therefore cannot be trusted.
In a statement on Friday, the Wisconsin Elections Commission said it would begin recounting once it received full payment from Stein’s campaign.
‘The Wisconsin Elections Commission today received two recount petitions from the Jill Stein for President Campaign and from Rocky Roque De La Fuente.
‘The Commission is preparing to move forward with a statewide recount of votes for President of the United States, as requested by these candidates,’ Administrator Michael Haas said.
De La Fuente trailed behind Stein in Wisconsin, winning just 0.1 percent of the vote.
Clinton, however, lost by just 1 percent, some 27,000 votes. According to experts who have cast doubt over the election results, hackers could have cost her as many as 30,000 by tapping in to apparently vulnerable machines.
Wisconsin’s elections commission is the first of the three targeted battleground states to respond to her calls for a recount. Stein filed her petition with seconds to spare before the window for demanding recounts closed on November 25.
