MADISON, Wis. - Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein argues in her lawsuit seeking a hand recount in Wisconsin that it wouldn't be as time consuming as feared and that's the only way to ensure results of the election are accurate.
Stein filed the lawsuit Monday after the state Elections Commission rejected her request that it order the recount be done by hand. The recount will start Thursday if Stein pays the estimated $3.5 million cost by Tuesday.
Stein says in the lawsuit that the 2016 presidential race was "subject to unprecedented cyberattacks" and lays out a scenario about how votes could be compromised.
There is no evidence that Wisconsin voting machines were hacked.
Dane County Circuit Judge Valerie Bailey-Rihn has been assigned the case.
