Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein speaks during a news conference at South Austin neighborhood Thursday, Sept. 8, 2016, in Chicago.

WASHINGTON -- The top lawyer for Hillary Clinton's presidential bid said Saturday that the campaign would join a third-party candidate's effort to seek a full recount in Wisconsin, and potentially two other states, though he said the campaign had seen no "actionable evidence" of vote hacking.

The democrats are so dishonest. Before the election they beat up Trump because he said he would wait to see if there was evidence of voter fraud before mounting a challenge. Then after the idiots (dems) lose, without any evidence of voter fraud, they now want to challenge the vote results. The danger here is like Minnesota's Al Franken, the dems will miraculously find enough votes stuffed in someones trunk to give them just enough + 1 to win. This 3rd world country crap that Obama and the dems have foisted upon us must end. We need law and order or the crooks will never stop gaming the system.

Stein is doing it for money. Trying to be like Sanders, who though got cheated, received a cool $600k to "buy" a new house in Vermont, where homes are cheap. Clinton, not satisfied that Trump might have given her a out of jail pass or at least not push her criminal case, now will face the hammer, which she richly deserves. She just has no common sense.

KCSAP, you are correct. Being a former MN resident, I watched the Norm Coleman, Al Franken race with interest. They just kept counting until Franken had enough votes. Coleman said he had to go back to work to earn a living, unlike Franken, who had the backing of the Obama supporters. They needed his vote to pass Obamacare.

What did Hillary say, "A candidate that will not accept the outcome of an election is a threat to democracy." Well Hillary, looks like the threat is you and proof of why you lost, you are dishonest and crooked, good riddance and maybe Trump should rethink prosecuting you.

Since the Republicans are not going to ask for a recount and of course would certainly not help such a witch hunt, those millions of dollars must have come from somewhere. And since the Green Party couldn't raise that much money for Stein's campaign, we must assume the only source of money for a recount must have come from a Democrat source. I wonder how much Stein got paid to launch a miscount?
Remember only those on a ballot would have standing to request such a recount.

Could it have come from a Clinton Foundation pot of Gold?

LOL! You folks are grasping at straws. It plainly said that Clinton got more votes where paper ballots were used, they probably are just going to check out the voter machines. And when they find them to be in good shape it'll all be over. It is OK if you win, fair and square. This is not MN. where Franken is from. Have some confidence in your elected officials. Remember, George W. Bush had a recount in FL. some time back, and the Supreme Court stopped it from being a total FL recount and Bush was sworn as POTUS. It'll all be fine. Take your BP pill or a drink of something nice and smooooth!

Have at it; wasting more money seems like such a great idea. It sure wouldn't do any good trying to help people in need instead

Hey Timber - Nate Silver performed relative statistical analysis that showed the voting models to be consistent with the demographic voting trends for both electronic and paper ballots. Plainly, Clinton received more of a percentage of the vote in urban areas than rural areas. Was this because paper ballots were used or because those people are more likely to vote a certain way?
.
It is curious, however, why Clinton would join the idiot Stein in this fool's errand? Any ideas?

"President-elect Donald Trump on Sunday made the astonishing claim that “millions of people who voted illegally” contributed to opponent Hillary Clinton’s victory in the popular vote, following a campaign based largely on spreading conspiracy theories and claiming that the election was “rigged” against him. 'In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally'— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 27, 2016
"Trump’s latest lie seems to have originated from the conservative conspiracy website Infowars, which published an article claiming that Trump actually won the popular vote because '“three million votes in the U.S. presidential election were cast by illegal aliens.”' The tweet followed an earlier string of posts in which Trump railed against Clinton, claiming her campaign was hypocritical to participate in a vote recount because she criticized him when he would not affirm whether he would accept the results of the election. Now it seems that Trump won’t even fully accept the results of the election even though he won it." --by Marina Fang, Associate Politics Editor, Huffpost
