Failed Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein on Wednesday announced plans to force a recount of votes in three crucial swing states — a longshot move that could help vanquished Democrat Hillary Clinton, who remained mum on the subject.
Stein, who garnered a dismal 1 percent of the national vote, said challenging the tallies in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan was needed to answer questions about a possible cyber-attack on electronic-voting machines.
Last week, activists reportedly urged Clinton’s campaign to force recounts in all three states, citing data showing she got 7 percent fewer votes in Wisconsin counties that used electronic-voting machines compared to those that relied on paper ballots and optical scanners.
