    Two pro-Trump groups hoped to get a federal judge to end Wisconsin’s recount early, but Judge James Peterson put an end to those hopes rather quickly. The Associated Press had barely even reported the challenge when Peterson declined to intervene. The issue will become moot soon enough anyway: A federal judge will on Friday consider halting Wisconsin’s presidential recount.President-elect Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton by more than 22,000 votes in the state. Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein requested the recount to determine if election machines were hacked.Two pro-Trump groups, the Great America PAC and the Stop Hillary PAC,...

    Day 8 of the Wisconsin recount followed the same pattern as the days that came before: Candidates won and lost votes, but nothing came close to altering Donald Trumps November 8 victory.The Wisconsin Election Commission reported that Hillary Clinton was up a net 61 votes on day 8. Thats the figure that matters; however, thats an insignificant number considering that Donald Trump leads by about 22,000 votes in Wisconsin overall. Green Party nominee Jill Stein spent $3.5 million on the Wisconsin recount.The results of the election are not going to change in this recount, Joe Czarnezki, Milwaukee County clerk said...
  • Wisconsin Held Hostage (Without Jill Stein taking votes away from Hillary, Trump would have lost)

    Stein has picked up a grand total of 60 votes or roughly $58,000 per vote seeing as she forked over $3.5 million for the recount. 60 x 58,000 = $3.48 mill How much did Trump spend per vote? Trump spent less than $5 per vote, Hillary Clinton's more than $10 per vote, with Trump spending $285.6 million for 59.21 million votes versus $609 million for 59.38 million votes for Clinton, according to data and New York Times vote totals Wednesday ...

    Fox News ^ | 12/07/2016 | By Andrew O'Reilly
    Statewide recounts in key 2016 battlegrounds are proceeding in fits and starts -- but doing little to change the math behind Donald Trump's victory. In Wisconsin, one of three states where Green Party candidate Jill Stein has sought a fresh tabulation, the president-elect has even gained on Hillary Clinton. The push for a recount in Pennsylvania, meanwhile, is awaiting a federal court's OK, and a similar effort in Michigan has run into new judicial turbulence. But while Trump narrowly defeated Clinton in all three states, the numbers trickling in look unlikely to call into question the Nov. 8 results. In...

    On Day Five of the Wisconsin presidential election recount, as reported by Fox 6 News, a milestone has been reached. Over a million votes have now been recounted, and the recount effort is finished in six of the 72 Wisconsin counties. Donald Trump now has 20 fewer votes than he had at the close of the polls on November 8; Hillary Clinton also has exactly 20 fewer votes than she had at the close of the polls, so Trumps margin of victory is literally unchanged. Gary Johnson (who came in third in the actual election) has gained 13 votes over...

    Gateway Pundit ^ | 11-27-16 | Jim Hoft
    Jill Stein is asking for recounts in an effort to nullify the electoral votes of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. Federal law says that presidential recounts must be completed within 35 days after an election. Stein waited until 90 minutes before the Wisconsin deadline for filing a recount petition expired. All the votes have to be certified by December 13 according to a report on Friday. The electors meet on December 19. Wisconsin will almost certainly miss that deadline, since the last recount took more than a month. And that recount was for a state Supreme Court contest where only 1.5...

    Day 5 of the Wisconsin recount continued the pattern on previous days, as Donald Trump extended his Election Day lead over Hillary Clinton by a couple dozen votes.Trump leads Wisconsin by about 22,000 votes. So far, data from the Wisconsin recount as of December 5 shows that little is changing. The major candidates have each gained a smattering of votes in municipalities around the state as a variety of errors are found, but nothing has changed in significant enough numbers to upend the election. Not even close. Trump and Clinton have also each lost votes in communities throughout the state,...

    Western Journalism ^ | December 2, 2016 | Randy DeSoto
    The conclusion of the first day of Wisconsins recount in the presidential race has netted Hillary Clinton one vote. Currently, approximately 22,000 votes separate Clinton and winner Donald Trump. Trump garnered 1,404,000 (47.2 percent) votes to Clintons 1,381,823 (46.4 percent), while Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who called for the recount (now backed by Clintons campaign), took 1 percent of the vote or 31,006. Based on the first day of the recounts results, it does not appear the candidates overall tallies will change much. Menominee County, home to the Menominee Indian Reservation, was the only one of Wisconsins 72 counties...

    Wisconsin recount totals for day 2 show that Donald Trump has inched ahead by a couple additional votes. Three to be exact. The Wisconsin Election Commission posts recount data on a spreadsheet every day. The latest spreadsheet totals as of 1:30 p.m. CST on December 3 show that the recount isnt changing much, although a smattering of errors have been found throughout the state. The candidates each lost and gained a smattering of votes in towns, cities, and villages that are reporting, so any losses were basically cancelled out.

    The first day of Wisconsins presidential recount narrowed the gap between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President-elect Donald Trump by precisely one vote. Trump defeated Clinton in Wisconsins initial tally by about one percent, or just over 22,000 votes. Nevertheless, Green Party candidate Jill Stein (who finished a very distant fourth) is demanding a full recount after suggesting fraud or technological glitches may have swayed the results. In response to Steins demand, Wisconsin began recounting all its ballots Thursday. But the first results to emerge suggest the final tally will be rather close to the original one. Only...

    Wisconsin Representative Sean Duffy (R-WI) went on with Tucker Carlson tonight to discuss the recount in Wisconsin.   Duffy said Democrats and far left Green Party supporters are stalling the recount in Dane County Wisconsin, where Madison is located. The county is holding a hand recount. The recount will not be completed by the deadline on December 20th. Therefore, according to Rep. Duffy, the state will quite possibly be forced to forfeit their electoral votes.   This was the plan all along. Democrats knew they couldn’t make up 20,000 votes. But they also knew if they stalled on the...

    The first day of the Wisconsin recount is over, and, perhaps ironically (or not, depending on your perspective), it was Green Party candidate Jill Stein who gained the most votes in the updated returns. However, on December 2, according to the Wisconsin State Journal, a group of Donald Trump supporters asked a federal judge to stop the recount, saying it violates equal protection clauses because the state doesnt have uniform standards for recounts and could miss the December 13 federal deadline for completing election results because of it. Steins vote tally increased by 17 votes (she went from 7 votes...

    The Wisconsin Elections Commission announced that it has received the required payment from Jill Stein to start the presidential recount in the state later this week. The former Green Party presidential candidate previously submitted a petition for a recount in Wisconsin, and she paid the required $3,499,689 set by the commission via bank wire transfer, according to the Wisconsin Elections Commission. The Wisconsin Elections Commission announced that amount as the required fee to start the recount process, but in its announcement today it noted that "there was an error in adding up figures" from the state's 72 county clerks, so...

    A Catholic college reported a crude Post-it note to city police as a hate crime because it told students to suck it up in response to Donald Trumps election. First Amendment experts say that while Wisconsins Edgewood College can punish students for even constitutionally protected speech, it cannot seek to use police to punish such speech as a crime. And the police agreed. A spokesman for the Madison Police Department told The College Fix Thursday that a parole officer and detective already looked into the report and found no immediate threat.

Lawyers for Trumps campaign have entered arguments in Pennsylvania and Michigan calling Steins quest a farce and in the latter, the state attorney general has filed to stop the recount effort he says abuses the intent of Michigan law. Trumps supporters are taking legal action in Wisconsin where a third recount effort is underway.
