On the Fox Business Network, Kennedy faced off with Jill Stein about her push for vote recounts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan. The former Green Party presidential candidate insisted that she doesn’t want to change the outcome of the election, but instead that she wants to root out fraud. Kennedy pointed out that Stein wants recounts in three states won by President-elect Donald Trump, and none won by Hillary Clinton. She added that there’s no evidence that any voting systems were hacked in any state. “We’re going to the three states that are most likely to show hacking because they had razor-thin margins, because they have corrupt voting machines,” Stein said. “In Wisconsin, they use voting machines that are illegal to use in California because they are so tamper-friendly. They are wide open, they’re an invitation to tampering.”
While Stein acknowledged she has no hard evidence of hacking, she pointed out that there has been election-related hacking on the periphery of the campaign, from private emails to the DNC database. Kennedy argued that all the data shows that Trump won the election due to shifting demographics, not vote irregularities. She praised Stein as a woman of “great integrity,” but said she must know that there is no justification for recounts. “Is this how you want to be remembered?” Kennedy asked.
