Trump Campaign Paid $ 3 Million For Recount In Wisconsin
Blaming Milwaukee County for ballot fraud, Donald Trump's campaign demanded a statewide recount.
“Official recount procedures begin in Wisconsin today, following a petition from President Donald J. Trump’s campaign. The campaign released the following statement from Jim Troupis,” says the statement. “Our democracy depends on fair and impartial elections that fully adhere to the Constitution and state statute. By staging a last minute attempt to change the rules, and by providing unlawful advice before then, the Wisconsin Elections Commission has repeatedly failed to follow the law. They have disenfranchised voters and undermined the integrity of this election. We continue to be confident that when all of the legal ballots are counted and illegal ballots are not counted, President Trump will be proven the winner.”

The demand sparked a long dispute, but local officials eventually agreed to recount the votes in Dane and Milwaukee counties.
