Green Party files for recount in Wisconsin

WASHINGTON (NBC) - The Stein-Baraka Green Party campaign has filed for a recount in Wisconsin.

The party claims in an effort to ensure the integrity of elections, they are filing Presidential recounts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.

Today the Stein-Baraka campaign filed with the Wisconsin elections commission for the recount of Presidential votes at the same time, they submitted the 1.1 million dollars to pay for it.

Wisconsin is the first state to file for the recount.

National recount lawyers and computer experts urged the campaign to investigate the elections in the three states because of the notable differences between voting machine tallies and exit polls.

“I want to be clear, there is no smoking gun,” said George Martin, Ambassador of Peace. “There’s not something that we’re pointing to say that this is wrong in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. What we are saying is that there is enough peripheral evidence to warrant that our system should be investigated. We are not doing this to the benefit of one candidate over the other. We are doing this for the benefit of the American public so that we can trust that our votes are counted.”
