Wisconsin’s presidential election recount ended Monday with President-elect Donald Trump expanding his lead over former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
The recount was requested by former Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who cited concerns about hacking and voter fraud to justify the recount. Stein raised more than $3.5 million in donations to finance the effort.
But instead of exposing widespread fraud on Trump’s behalf, the recount found no major discrepancies and expanded Trump’s lead. After a week and a half of recounting, the final tally discovered 1,769 more votes than were counted on election night, and Trump’s lead increased by 162 votes.
The increase in Trumps’s lead amounts to one vote for every $21,605 spent by Stein.
