What Might Jill Stein's Recount Expose About The Election?

Big Picture Interview: Greg Palast, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy. It's almost like they have something to hide. With one Jill Stein-led recount effort already underway in Wisconsin and additional recounts pending in Michigan and Pennsylvania, supporters of Donald Trump are now taking legal action to stop what they say is a basless attempt to smear their candidate. In Pennsylvania, Trump himself has joined up with the local Republican Party to block Jill Stein's request for a recount. In Wisconsin, Trump Super PACS are doing the dirty work and have asked a federal judge to stop what they say is a violation of due process rights. Across the border in Michigan, meanwhile, Republican Attorney General Bill Scuette has asked the State Supreme Court to cancel an effort he and his office are calling a "frivolous request for a recount by an aggrieved party to silence all Michigan votes for president." So - IS Jill Stein's push for a recount just a useless exercise in self-promotion? Or is there actually a chance it could expose something big?
