Jill Stein, of the Green Party, is spearheading a recount. Yesterday, the donations grew from $30,000 to $2.5 million in 12 hours. I knew that this is a thing I can get behind and push. If you feel that way, too, please go here and donate.
From the Stein press release:
Jill Stein observed, “After a divisive and painful presidential race, reported hacks into voter and party databases and individual email accounts are causing many American 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."
In an election surrounded by hacks, the use of systems that have been demonstrated to be easily hacked should concern every American. Some of the machines used in Wisconsin, have been banned in California after they were shown to be highly vulnerable to hacking and malicious reprogramming, due to the lack of security features. Leading election security experts have been calling for exactly this sort of recount as a critical safeguard against cyberattacks.
The deadline for filing for a recount in Wisconsin is this Friday, November 25th, at a cost of $1.1 million. The Stein/Baraka campaign, along with election integrity advocates, are beginning in a massive [crowd source] fundraising effort to obtain the needed funds before Friday afternoon.
On this Thanksgiving Day, I'm grateful to live in a country and at time where we can peaceably register our concerns, raise our voices, and stand with those taking action.
