You might not remember, but in the US election there was more than just Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton running as candidates.

In fact there were several other candidates in the running as well.

Among them was Green’s candidate Jill Stein, you know, the woman Susan Sarandon was backing.

You might be wondering why we’re even talking about her?

Well, Stein has raised more than $5 million in an effort to have votes recounted in three key battleground states.

That’s right, she is demanding recounts in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin – three states where Donald Trump narrowly beat Hillary Clinton.

So, why is she pushing for a recount?

Well, while she has no evidence of any fraud, she believes the voting systems were vulnerable, according to reports in The Guardian.

Stein told CNN there was “compelling evidence of voting anomalies”.

“We do not have a smoking gun,” she said.    

“On the other hand, we have a system that invites hacking, tampering and malfeasance.”

But she insisted that the idea of a recount wasn’t to block Trump from becoming the president.

“Both of the candidates were at the highest level of distrust and dislike in our history and in my view, we as voters deserve a voting system that we can believe in,” she said.

“And to my mind, having a verified vote is just a first step.”

    There was proof that Republic votes were automatically changed to Democrat votes.

    There was evidence of destruction of Republic paper votes.

    It has been shown that 3 million votes had been placed by illegal aliens. This was reported by Greg Phillips of the organization.

    This means that Trump would have won the popular vote, as well as the actual election.

    “We have verified more than three million votes cast by non-citizens,” tweeted Phillips after reporting that the group had completed an analysis of a database of 180 million voter registrations.

    Currently, news networks are reporting that Hillary won the popular vote by roughly 630,000 votes, while 7 million ballots are yet to be counted.

    Most of the 3 million votes by illegal aliens were very likely for Hillary.

    Voter fraud is achieved by using dead people’s votes, as well as illegal aliens.
