Evidently ponying up $7.9 Million was too much of a task, but Team Trump managed to scrape together $3 Million (sorry Rudy, not everybody can get paid) and they’re asking Wisconsin to recount in Milwaukee and Dane counties, which are both heavily Democratic. Biden beat Trump by 477,455 to 213,157.
The Wisconsin Elections Commission has received a wire transfer from the Trump campaign for $3 million. No petition has been received yet, but the Trump campaign has told WEC staff one will be filed today. We have no further information at this time.

This is being done for two reasons, gin up donations, and drag this out as long as possible to keep the base fully engaged. Even if Trump flipped the state, which he won’t, it wouldn’t change the outcome of the election. And that’s not the purpose of this. The purpose of this is to fleece the rubes and launch the media empire.
