President-elect Donald Trump won those three states and solidified his election victory even though he’s losing the popular vote to rival Hillary Clinton by almost 2.5 million votes.
According to a wide variety of experts, the recounts aren’t expected to change the outcome of the election. But Stein says she wants to “verify the accuracy of the vote.”
Among some of the issues she hopes to resolve are questions over “susceptible to computer hacking.”
Last night, she won a key ruling in federal court in Michigan. U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith ordered the recount to begin “immediately.” Stein said there was a large “under vote” that may have disenfranchised minority voters in the state.
The “under vote” occurred in mostly minority communities and could change the outcome of the election.
The Michigan Board of Canvassers certified the state’s election results Monday, Trump won the presidential race in the state by a 10,704-vote margin over Clinton, according to The Detroit Free Press.
The Trump campaign has filed lawsuits in all three states to block the recounts.
In Pennsylvania, Stein said “the fix was in” to make it impossible to conduct the recount. So, she said she has filed a lawsuit in federal court to seek a ruling like the one in Michigan.
Trump was one of the biggest critics of the voting system during the campaign, repeatedly calling it “rigged.”
But he’s been attacking Stein’s effort on Twitter, calling it a “scam.”
“The Green Party just dropped its recount suit in Pennsylvania and is losing votes in Wisconsin recount. Just a Stein scam to raise money!” Trump tweeted.
Stein raised a reported $7 million in a mater of days to pay for the voting recounts, according to a statement on her Facebook page.
“We won’t stand down as Donald Trump and his allies seek to frivolously obstruct the legal processes set up to ensure we have a voting system we can trust and that all votes have been counted,” Stein said in a statement.
