Clinton urged to challenge election results as ‘strong evidence’ suggests voting was rigged

Reports this morning state that computer scientists and lawyers are strongly urging Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to challenge the results of the recent US election.

The group, which includes voting rights lawyer John Bonifaz and J Alex Halderman, director of the University of Michigan’s center for computer security and society, claim that they have obtained evidence that voting systems were hacked.

The group however are not willing to speak on record, and are instead focused on lobbying the Clinton team in private.

According to New York Mag, the activists held a conference call with Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and campaign general counsel Marc Elias to make their case.

The group argue mainly that suspicious patterns of voting merit an independent review.

If reviewed and found to be true, the areas affected may warrant Clinton enough electoral votes to have won the election.

The Clinton team must decide quickly to challenge the election.

The deadline in Wisconsin to file for a recount is Friday; in Pennsylvania, it’s Monday; and Michigan is next Wednesday.
