Jill Stein Delivers $3.5M for Wisconsin Election Recount
She also is pursuing recounts in Michigan and Pennsylvania.
Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein has delivered $3.5 million to the state of Wisconsin to guarantee a recount of the presidential vote there.
Stein faced a 4:30 p.m. Central Time deadline to deliver the money so a recount could start Thursday. The Wisconsin Elections Commission says it got a wire transfer shortly before Tuesday's deadline.
Stein says she worries the results were hacked, and says a recount is the only way to know for sure. Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton by about 22,000 votes in Wisconsin, and Stein was far behind.
Stein was in court Tuesday afternoon seeking to force the Wisconsin recount to be done by hand. She also is pursuing recounts in Michigan and Pennsylvania.
