Jill Stein Raises Enough Money To Force Wisconsin Recount – Michigan & Pennsylvania Up Next
A couple of days ago we wrote about a group of scientists, which included voting-rights attorney John Bonifaz and J. Alex Halderman, the director of the University of Michigan Center for Computer Security and Society, who announced they had found “persuasive evidence” that results in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania may have been manipulated or hacked. Of course, they presented absolutely no evidence to support their startling claim other than to point out that Clinton received, on average, 7% fewer votes in counties that used electronic voting machines rather than optical scanners and paper ballots.
Apparently that was all the evidence that Jill Stein needed to be convinced that she might have a chance in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan where she received 1.1%, 0.8% and 1.1% of the vote, respectively. So she started an online funding campaign to raise the millions of dollars required to force the recounts.
We joke, of course, as Jill Stein’s effort to raise money for recounts in WI, PA and MI is obviously being done on behalf of the Hillary Clinton campaign. It’s a very clever approach (we would expect nothing less) as it allows Hillary to maintain the high road as the gracious loser while allowing someone else to play the bad guy…typical Clinton politics really.
