Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette tweeted Friday his plans to file a lawsuit against Jill Stein's recount request.
"(Jill Stein's) refusal to accept verified results poses an expensive & risky threat to MI taxpayers," he tweeted.

This was Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette's first tweet on the matter.
Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein filed a suit in Pennsylvania Monday seeking a statewide recount, according to Philly.com.
The legal papers filed by a lawyer for Stein's campaign cite an affidavit by University of Michigan computer scientist, Alex Halderman, who outlined some of the "vulnerabilities of the electronic voting systems."
The Green Party's suit argued that the election was "illegal" and that the petitioners are concerned about irregularities with electronic voting machines.
Monday's petition was part of Stein's larger campaign seeking recounts in three key states where Clinton lost by a slim margin.
Last week Stein's campaign filed a petition for a recount in Wisconsin and she is expected to do the same in Michigan by the end of the week.
As of Monday night, Stein had raised more than $6 million in her pursuit of recounts. Her final goal is $7 million.
Stein posted a YouTube video Sunday, explaining why initiating a recount in Pennsylvania was particularly tricky. That's because, in Pennsylvania, she can't just file a direct request for a recount.
Instead, she must present evidence that election fraud took place. But so far, there is no proof that any type of hacking compromised the results of the election, despite President-elect Donald Trump's Twitter rant where he falsely claimed "millions" voted illegally.
