Jill Stein Requests Wisconsin Recount

Jill Stein has requested a full recount of the presidential election in Wisconsin, alleging that foreign hackers could have skewed the result by obtaining the state’s voter database and then filing bogus absentee ballots. Stein formally filed for a recount with Wisconsin authorities shortly before the state’s deadline on Friday. The Green Party candidate also plans to request recounts in Michigan and Pennsylvania in the coming days. Wisconsin’s election board agreed on Friday to the statewide recount. The process, including an examination by hand of the nearly 3 million ballots, will begin late this week after Stein’s campaign has paid the required fee. Manual recounts are time-consuming, and the state would need to finish the effort by Dec. 13th.
