Green Party nominee Jill Stein has raised more than .9 million to fund recounts in three swing states that gave the election to Donald Trump: Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.Stein has said she is not taking the actions to help Clinton but rather to verify election integrity.Pennsylvania’s recount deadline is on November 28, and Stein has not yet requested the recount there or in Michigan.(Hillary Clinton would need all three states to fall to win the Electoral College, which meets December 19, giving states a tight deadline to complete recounts.) Trump, who leads in Michigan by only 10,704 votes, called the recount efforts a “scam.” Meanwhile, the Obama administration is defending the election results, according to Politico, saying, “it has seen no evidence of hackers tampering with the 2016 presidential election” and adding, “We stand behind our election results, which accurately reflect the will of the American people.” Stein has already formally asked for a Wisconsin recount, and one will commence next week.She asked for the Wisconsin recount first because that state’s deadline was November 25.
