Hitlery Clinton may not be finished yet. She is being urged by a group computer and election experts to challenge the results in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
If I were Hitlery I would be very careful. There was no Republican voter fraud discovered at all during the campaign or the election. In fact, the people urging Hitlery to challenge the results have no evidence of tampering whatsoever.
There were, however, dozens of cases of election fraud by Democrats. If Hitlery and her troop of flying monkeys challenge the results in three states, the Republicans may very well uncover even more embarrassing election fraud by Democrats in many states.
The ONLY foolproof method of voting is going back to the old-fashioned paper ballots, which should be counted and recounted by hand at the precinct level, and in the presence of officials from both parties. The counting should be streamed online for the public to see. Combine this method with voter ID and we will have wiped out most of the opportunity for election fraud. In addition, the voter rolls should be audited carefully to insure that no illegal aliens are voting, as well as those who assumed room temperature long ago. Absentee voting should also be reformed.
According to New York Magazine, Hillary Clinton is being urged by a group of prominent computer scientists and election lawyers to call for a recount in three swing states won by Donald Trump, New York has learned. The group, which includes voting-rights attorney John Bonifaz and J. Alex Halderman, the director of the University of Michigan Center for Computer Security and Society, believes they’ve found persuasive evidence that results in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania may have been manipulated or hacked. The group is so far not speaking on the record about their findings and is focused on lobbying the Clinton team in private.
Last Thursday, the activists held a conference call with Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and campaign general counsel Marc Elias to make their case, according to a source briefed on the call. The academics presented findings showing that in Wisconsin, Clinton received 7 percent fewer votes in counties that relied on electronic-voting machines compared with counties that used optical scanners and paper ballots. Based on this statistical analysis, Clinton may have been denied as many as 30,000 votes; she lost Wisconsin by 27,000. While it’s important to note the group has not found proof of hacking or manipulation, they are arguing to the campaign that the suspicious pattern merits an independent review — especially in light of the fact that the Obama White House has accused the Russian government of hacking the Democratic National Committee.
According to current tallies, Trump has won 290 Electoral College votes to Clinton’s 232, with Michigan’s 16 votes not apportioned because the race there is still too close to call. It would take overturning the results in both Wisconsin (10 Electoral College votes) and Pennsylvania (20 votes), in addition to winning Michigan’s 16, for Clinton to win the Electoral College. There is also the complicating factor of “faithless electors,” or members of the Electoral College who do not vote according to the popular vote in their states. At least six electoral voters have said they would not vote for Trump, despite the fact that he won their states.
The Clinton camp is running out of time to challenge the election. According to one of the activists, the deadline in Wisconsin to file for a recount is Friday; in Pennsylvania, it’s Monday; and Michigan is next Wednesday. Whether Clinton will call for a recount remains unclear. The academics so far have only a circumstantial case that would require not just a recount but a forensic audit of voting machines. Also complicating matters, a senior Clinton adviser said, is that the White House, focused on a smooth transfer of power, does not want Clinton to challenge the election result. Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri did not respond to a request for comment. But some Clinton allies are intent on pushing the issue. This afternoon, Huma Abedin’s sister Heba encouraged her Facebook followers to lobby the Justice Department to audit the 2016 vote. “Call the DOJ…and tell them you want the votes audited,” she wrote. “Even if it’s busy, keep calling.”
Update: Halderman has elaborated on his claims in a Medium post published Wednesday morning.
