Hillary Clinton moves to join Wisconsin recount lawsuit

Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton is looking to join Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein’s lawsuit seeking a hand recount in Wisconsin.

Stein and Independent presidential candidate Roque De La Fuente have asked for a recount. Stein has asked the recount be completed by hand in every Wisconsin county to verify electronic voting machines weren’t hacked. State elections officials refused to order a hand recount. Stein filed a lawsuit Monday asking a Dane County judge to order a hand recount.

Clinton’s attorneys filed a motion Tuesday seeking to join the lawsuit, arguing the recount could affect her. They also filed a memo supporting the push for a hand recount, saying that method is the most transparent for the public and will ensure the most accurate results.

Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton by about 22,000 votes in Wisconsin. The recount will start Thursday if Stein or De La Fuente or both meet a Tuesday deadline to pay the $3.5 million cost.

Pat Garrett with the Republican Party of Wisconsin released this statement:

“Hillary Clinton will say or do anything to hold onto power, and now she’s doing everything possible to help steal the Election in Wisconsin. This behavior is nothing new; throughout this campaign she put politics above everything else and that is exactly why she lost.”

    I love the actions of the Leftists. I can only hope they continue. The feet stomping worked great during the Act 10 passage and the Walker recount. Keep up the good work. Oh may I add that they will make this go better for them if they call me racist, fascist, Nazi and every kind of “phobic” imaginable.

      I already forgot about the Scott Walker recount.
      They voted, Walker won, Walker did what he said he was going to do.
      He broke the teachers union and then they cried and wanted a recount.
      and how did that work out for them?

    Recount so necessary it’s the American people’s request .
    Donald Trump unqualified hope the Electorial college disqualify Donald .

      “American peoples request”?
      Only the Clinton losers are trying to change the outcome by changing the whole election system.
      Trump won the electoral votes needed to be the President.
      Hillary lost and now you all are trying to use any means to change the outcome.
      Electoral voters don’t want to vote for the candidate that won those votes?
      Then why do we have an election if 270 of 500 people can pick and choose the President or determine who is “qualified” or “unfit”

    yeah right, ya right wing trunpanzees, and “Nothing fishy” was why almost 5000 votes that didn’t exist were padded across 4 precincts, ADMITTED and removed. Sounds like a good reason to recount to me.

    EACH COUNTY SHOULD CHECK ALL NAMES WHO REGISTERED TO VOTE AND SEE IF ANY OF THE REGISTERED VOTERS ARE STILL ALIVE B/4 DOING THE RE-COUNT OF BALLOTS. THAT IS THE MOST LOGICAL WAY TO START.

    Hillary Rodham Clinton didn’t even bother to go to Wisconsin during the election.
    YET she EXPECTED to win the State and now wants a recount?
    A little to little and a bit to late.
