Green Party eyes lawsuit seeking recount in Pennsylvania

Donald Trump claims he won popular vote if ‘illegal’ votes for Hillary Clinton are deducted

Recounts rarely result in a reversal of the outcome, and in the 27 State-wide recounts between 2000 and 2015, only three times the outcome changed, according to data compiled by Fairvote, a group that advocates election reforms.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission voted unanimously Monday to approve the recount timeline.

Stein won approximately one percent of the vote in each of the three states, but local media has reported that she raised over five million U.S. dollars to finance her recount bid, which is 3.5 million dollars more than what she raised for her presidential campaign.

Lawrence Otter, a Pennsylvania attorney representing Stein's campaign, told The Philadelphia Inquirer he planned to file suit in Commonwealth Court on Monday calling for a statewide recount.

President-elect Donald Trump narrowly won Wisconsin and Pennsylvania and has a small lead in MI.

While there is no evidence that voter fraud was committed in any state, that didn't stop Trump, who also tweeted that there was "serious voter fraud" in Virginia, New Hampshire and California.

In what states are the recounts being requested?


Stein acknowledged in an interview with NPR Saturday that the recount effort is largely symbolic.

Stein has already successfully sought a recount in Wisconsin.

US President-elect Donald Trump has asserted he won the popular vote on 8 November "if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally". Clinton's campaign said over the weekend it would formally participate in the Wisconsin recount efforts.

Pennsylvania is where Trump has his biggest lead of 68,000 votes over Hillary Clinton.

Elias said Clinton would take the same approach in Pennsylvania and MI if Stein were to follow through with recount requests in those states. He argued that records stored in electronic voting equipment could have been manipulated in an attack. The Clinton campaign has now joined the recount effort, but there is very little chance it will change the election results. Stein could ask a judge to order a hand recount, which could take considerably longer to complete. Romney was "nothing but awful" to him for a year, she said.

The recount would include an examination of all ballots, poll lists, absentee applications, rejected absentee ballots and provisional ballots. It's the last state to officially certify its election results and comes almost three weeks after Election Day.

On Thursday, the recount will begin, and all counties will have until December 12 to complete their part.

The US presidential race is decided by the Electoral College, based on a tally of wins from the state-by-state contests, rather than by the national vote.
