Stein continues with recount effort

- Green Party Presidential candidate Jill Stein continued her recount effort in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, all three states where Donald Trump narrowly defeated Hillary Clinton.

As president-elect trump continued his victory tour thanking voters who put him in the White house, failed third party candidate Jill Stein continued to push for a vote recount. Speaking on Fox News Sunday, Kelllyanne Conway said it was time for Stein to give it up.

"The question for Jill Stein, Hillary Clinton, and those who are in the grief, anger, and denial stages: will you start moving over to acceptance and let this president- elect get on with the business of government," said Trump’s senior advisor.

Stein raised almost double her campaign war chest of $3.5 million for the recount effort and focused it in 3 states where Trump narrowly won, which raised questions about its true purpose. A Pennsylvania state court denied the recount, and now Stein is turning to a federal court.

"As far as I’m concerned, if we do find there's a systemic problem with these machines, which are extremely unreliable and prone to error as well as to hacking and security breaches, we need to expand the recount," said Stein.

Host Chris Wallace challenged Stein on the numbers, saying an election result change is beyond unlikely. A recount in Wisconsin gave Hillary Clinton 1 vote.

"I read one article in the ‘Daily Caller’ that said at this pace, Clinton could change the election results in Wisconsin in 74 1/2 years, I don't think America is going to sit around and wait for that to happen," said Conway.

Stein isn't sitting around. She plans to be out in front of trump tower on Fifth Avenue Monday morning with a press conference and a protest.
