    I’m pretty sure I saw that Jill Stein’s new fundraising target for the recount was $9.6 million. And all this, if I understand correctly, for a procedure that will not uncover malfeasance of the sort primarily suspected.

    I did read that Wisconsin received a $3.5 million payment.

    In that Truthout article that maybe you, maybe someone else, pointed to, it’s pretty clear the money has to go to the recounts: http://greybeard95a.com/38j

    I don’t know what happens to any that’s left over. Yes, it’s a huge amount of money. It’s also, it would seem, a very expensive thing to do. I just don’t buy that it will settle the questions that are being asked most loudly and I don’t buy that it’s a good use for the money.
