Jill Stein raises $4.7 million for recount

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein has raised $4.7 million to fund an audit and recount of election results in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin. Stein announced Wednesday she would seek a recount after reports surfaced that cybersecurity experts had noticed alleged irregularities in the states' results. However, one of the experts said they did not uncover any evidence the election was hacked, and Politico reported some have said it's "unlikely that there was evidence showing a hack."

The Stein campaign initially hoped to raise $2.5 million through a crowd-funding effort to cover legal fees ahead of the Friday filing deadline in Wisconsin. Her new goal early Friday was $7.0 million.
