Green Party raised $2.5 million for presidential election recount in Wisconsin
Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein on Thursday reached her goal to raise $2.5 million to request a recount in Wisconsin, one of three states where she plans to seek an audit of US presidential election results, Reuters.
Stein's campaign said she will ask Wisconsin to verify vote totals tallied by electronic machines that her campaign called "highly vulnerable to hacking and malicious reprogramming" in a statement on its website.
She is also trying to raise an additional $2 million to request recounts in Michigan and Pennsylvania, where deadlines are next week to file the required paperwork.
Election experts have identified Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania as states where "statistical anomalies" occurred, according to the Stein campaign.
"We deserve elections we can trust," the campaign said.
"Our effort to recount votes in those states is not intended to help Hillary Clinton," the Stein campaign said.
