After meeting her goal of raising $4.5 million in just over 24 hours to cover vote recount costs in the swing states of Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, Dr. Jill Stein has once again upped her fundraising game, now asking for a total of $7 million.

The first goal was funding for Wisconsin, completed just in time to meet the recount filing deadline of November 25. In Pennsylvania the deadline for filing for a recount is Monday, while Michigan has a Wednesday deadline.

Stein, who won about 1.2 million votes in the presidential election, launched an online fundraising campaign Wednesday in an effort to “ensure the integrity of our elections” and “demand recounts in these three states where the data suggest a significant need to verify machine-counted vote totals.”

Stein says the $4.5 million in funds is required by state law to cover “filing fees alone” and claims the total cost including attorney fees is likely to reach $6-7 million.

Together, the three states carry a total of 46 electoral votes, and Trump would have to lose all three in the recount for them to impact the presidential result. Stein’s fundraising success has prompted mixed responses on social media, with some people suggesting the move undemocratic in refusing to accept the results as they stand, or is too late to be effective.

Others poked fun at the situation through memes or by suggesting moments they would have sought a vote recall.

  • If the democratic party insist on a recount it should be meticulous done to weed out all those that voted twice, those that voted who are deceased, those that vote who illegally in this country, those that were bused in to vote, and those who votes were changed from Trump to Kilary unknowingly.
