Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate has filed the paperwork to force Wisconsin to recount the entire state for the Presidential election
Donald Trump got 1,409,467
Jill Stein got 30,980
Obviously, Jill Stein doesn’t believe she was cheated out of a victory. She is operating as a surrogate for the antitrump people while keeping Hillary away from the process.
Trump won by 27,257 votes. That’s a lot of chads to hang.
Once her request is approved, Trump will have a right to object. She needs to articulate an actual fact based reason with evidence, not just a suspicion.
The handbook goes through the process. It sounds like most ballots were optically scanned, and the hope apparently is that running them through a second time will give a different answer. Optionally, they could do the recount manually, sorting ballots by looking at the marking on each ballot. School teachers have been known to fill in dots to fake achievement tests. Hopefully that won’t happen here.
She plans to do the same in Pennsylvania and Michigan
Trump has 306 electoral votes, he needs 270
Pennsylvania is 20 – the margin was Trump +68,000
Down to 286
Michigan is 16 – margin is 11,600, down to 270 (Tie!)
Wisconsin is 10 – down to 260
But you can see, it would take all three states overturned. With a tie, the House decides on January 6th.
Barack Obama leaned on Hillary election night to give it up. Someone didn’t get the memo. Or Romney and Bill Kistol is funding this.
