Jill Stein: $1 million on overhead.
Stein, who pushed for recounts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, raised $7.3 million for the efforts and said that “every dollar” went towards costs associated with the recount efforts.
The group, which claimed costs associated with the recounts hit $7.4 million, upped their fundraising goal four times since first calling for recounts. According to a breakdown of expenses contained on the fund’s website, Stein paid nearly $1 million on consultants and staff. The staff payroll tallied $212,500 while consultants pocketed $364,000. Administrative expenses, such as travel costs, ran $353,618.
In all, $930,118 was used to pay consultants, staff, and administrative costs.Hacking? There are indications that Obama's Department of Homeland Security may have tried hacking Georgia state government. This would explain why the White House was so reticent/resistant/hesitant about beginning an investigation. No links. Story everywhere.
