It’s been a month since Donald Trump won the presidential election but it looks like his opponent, Hillary Clinton is not over the shocking results and intends to do something about them. The Democratic candidate has teamed up with the Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who demanded a recount of the votes in Wisconsin on Friday.
Marc Elias, Clinton’s campaign general counsel has not yet found any proof that the results were rigged but believes it’s important to take all the steps necessary to make sure that the election didn’t include any voting fraud. Furthermore, he believes that it is their moral obligation to the American people to check for any illegalities in the voting process, so that the polls are the actual reflection of what the United States desired.
“While that effort has not, in our view, resulted in evidence of manipulation of results, now that a recount is underway, we believe we have an obligation to the more than 64 million Americans who cast ballots for Hillary Clinton to participate in ongoing proceedings to ensure that an accurate vote count will be reported,” Elias wrote in a post to Medium on November 26.
Wisconsin is not the only state where the votes are going to be recounted. Clinton and Stein plan to also demand for a recount in two more states – Pennsylvania and Michigan. The reason why these particular states require a recounting of votes is because Trump barely won in them, making him victorious in the long run.
Hillary Clinton was greatly affected by the unexpected results of the election, but she is not giving up so soon. Reportedly, the politician gave her concession speech but was “inconsolable” afterwards. Her loss must’ve weighted a lot on her shoulders because, according to author Ed Klein, “About 6:30 this morning, she called an old friend. She couldn’t stop crying.”
