Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein has raised over $2.7 million to pay for vote recounts in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania after reports surfaced saying possible hacks occurred in key counties in these “Rust Belt” states.
“Over the last 48-72 hours, reports have come in from experts, cyberexperts, who are reporting to us some very troubling news about the possibility of security breaches in voting results across this country,” Stein campaign manager David Cobb said in a video posted on Stein’s Facebook page.
Stein’s fundraising website that is trying to reach a goal of $4.5 million reads the following:
On November 23, the Stein/Baraka Green Party Campaign launched an effort to ensure the integrity of our elections. With your help, we are raising money to demand recounts in these three states where the data suggests a significant need to verify machine-counted vote totals.
In true grassroots fashion, we’re turning to you, the people, and not big-money corporate donors to make this happen.
“After a divisive and painful presidential race, reported hacks into voter and party databases and individual email accounts are causing many Americans to wonder if our election results are reliable,” Stein said on Wednesday. “These concerns need to be investigated before the 2016 presidential election is certified. We deserve elections we can trust.”
