After withdrawing his presidential recount petition in Wisconsin, “Rocky” Roque De La Fuente almost immediately filed for a recount in Nevada. De La Fuente was the first to file for a recount in Wisconsin but withdrew his petition when Jill Stein duplicated his effort and the estimated cost of the recount soared to more than $3.5 million. He has already posted payment for the recount in Nevada. “I’ve made this decision for a number of reasons,” said De La Fuente. “First, Wisconsin obviously made a recount cost-prohibitive for a citizen with standing. Jill (Stein) was able to tap into a Democratic base of donors to raise more than $6.2 million in just a few days, so she can afford to pursue the issue there.”
He continued, “I think she (Stein) drew Democratic support because she also named Pennsylvania and Michigan as states she would target for recounts. If all three states flipped, Hillary Clinton would become the President-elect.”
Then, he distinguished his effort: “I’m only interested in validating the election and exposing the vulnerabilities I believe exist in our current system. I’m not trying to change the results. If that happens, so be it, but I’m not trying to force it. ”
