Jill Stein files for recount in MI


If it's any consolation for Clinton - and it's probably mighty little - she's winning the national popular vote.

But, as McDaniel said, Stein only received 51,463 votes in MI, or 1.07 percent.

Ronna Romney McDaniel, chairwoman of the Michigan Republican Party, criticized the recount efforts, according to the Detroit Free Press.

That is what is written on her website's home page. "An average $45 donation, nearly 140,000 donors, have stood up and said, 'We deserve an election system we have confidence in'". "When counties report their actual costs, the Commission will either bill the Stein campaign for any costs over the $3.5 million or refund the campaign any unused funds".

Stein's campaign said she would file a petition Wednesday for a MI recount, after which Trump would have seven days to file objections.

"Procedures are in place to investigate any real voter fraud", Secretary of State Alex Padilla told NPR's All Things Considered Monday. She could conceivably tip the electoral balance in the remote event that all flipped to her in recounts.

Wisconsin election officials have less than two weeks to complete the recount.

The AP, which called Democrat Hillary Clinton the victor in all three states, said its vote count operation found no significant differences between the county-by-county vote totals and those released statewide on election night in California and Virginia.

At the same time, Green Party-backed voters were seeking precinct-level recounts in various counties.

There's been no indication of widespread vote manipulation, illegal voting or hacking that materially affected the outcome one way or the other.

Stein cites concerns cyberattacks mounted by foreign governments could have altered results tabulated on Pennsylvania's electronic voting machines.

"Jill Stein has no chance of winning the MI election and she knows it", McDaniel continued. That's close to the $7 million she posted as a goal and millions more than the roughly $3.5 million she raised during her entire presidential bid. Instead, the decision to choose the president would head to the Republican-controlled House of Representatives.

Stein won no states and wouldn't directly or immediately benefit from a recount - nor would she likely be able to topple Trump.

"Unless we actually look, we would never know, she said".

Recounts can change vote counts on the margins, but Trump's edge of more than 22,000 votes in Wisconsin is all but impossible to eliminate, barring a massive, unprecedented and unexpected failure of the state's voting machines. "Stein also knows that there is no chance that she will flip enough votes to change the results of the election in MI". But it does not carry the same drama as the Florida presidential recount of 2000, when the outcome of the election between Al Gore and George W. Bush hung in the balance.

Now, this whole thing reeks of a scam to raise money for the Green Party.

The recount itself could be costly.

Stein filed a lawsuit Monday in Pennsylvania to force a recount there.

The order for a December 5 hearing came a day after the campaign of failed Green Party candidate Jill Stein filed the request.

Many of Hillary Clinton's supporters have given their backing to the Green party candidate's fundraising efforts.

Trump, who himself suggested that he would not concede the election during the campaign if he had lost, used his Twitter account to declare that "nothing will change".
