Jill Stein calling for recount of votes in key states

Camden, ME (CNN) —  She wanted to be the next President.

Now Jill Stein is challenging the election results.

The Green Party nominee has raised nearly 4 million dollars in her push for a vote recount in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

Stein and others want an audit and recount of the November 8th voting results in those states after reports that voting security experts altered Hilary Clinton’s campaign to the possibility of hacks in key counties.

“There were lots of hacks taking place around this election. Hacks into voter databases, into party databases, into individual email accounts,” said Stein. “And what we also know, unfortunately, is that the equipment that we use … much of it is not just open to hacks. It basically invites hacks and malfeasance, tampering, human error, et cetera. Some of the voting machines in use in Wisconsin, for example, have actually been prohibited in the state of California because they’ve basically been proven to be wide open to tampering. So what we’re saying is not that the hacking or fraud has necessarily taken place. I don’t think we have evidence of that. But I think it’s only natural and it’s good for Americans to be reassured that our votes are counted. The fact that it has basically funded itself overnight reflects the incredible hunger out there among the American people to actually start doing something positive and to start creating an election system that we can believe in.”

President – elect Donald Trump claimed Pennsylvania and Wisconsin on election night giving him the electoral votes he needed to win the White House.

But Michigan remains too close to call, more than two weeks after election day.

Stein’s current goal is to raise 4.5 million dollars.
