Recounts were launched in several states in hopes of overturning Trump’s victory and giving the White House to Hillary Clinton.
Green Party candidate Jill Stein launched legal actions to require voter recounts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan. Although Stein only received about 1% of the popular vote and no chance of winning any state via a recount, she claimed her only motive was to insure voting integrity and that there wasn’t any voter fraud or hacking that swayed the elections. She also claimed it had nothing to do with her wanting Hillary Clinton to win over Donald Trump.
However, if voting integrity was the ONLY reason Stein had for filing for recounts, then why didn’t she select any of the states where Hillary Clinton won by a narrow margin? Trump won by narrow margins in 3 states but Clinton won by narrow margins in 4 states, so why not want recounts in those states?
Minnesota holds 10 electoral votes and according to the election results posted after the election, Hillary Clinton received 43,785 more votes than Donald Trump. This is a smaller margin of victory than what Trump won Pennsylvania by. Stein challenged the Pennsylvania vote where Trump won by 68,236 votes. So why didn’t she challenge the closer results in Minnesota if her only motive was voter integrity and election hacking.
