Green Party candidate Jill Stein has raised nearly $4.8 million for an election recount in three key Rustbelt states won by Donald Trump, including Pennsylvania.
Earlier this week, a small group of prominent computer scientists and election lawyers raised questions about the results in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, suggesting they might have been manipulated or hacked. The deadlines to file for recounts are Friday in Wisconsin, Monday in Pennsylvania and Wednesday in Michigan.
"After a divisive and painful presidential race, reported hacks into voter and party databases and individual email accounts are causing many Americans to wonder if our election results are reliable. These concerns need to be investigated before the 2016 presidential election is certified. We deserve elections we can trust," Stein stated on her website.
Hillary Clinton's campaign officials have not commented and were concerned the issue would disrupt the transfer of power or cause further unrest over Trump's win, according to NBC News.
While President-elect Trump has been silent on the recount efforts, his former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway has Tweeted about the issue.
