Think you’re registered to vote? Think again. With all this purg’n going on, you could be x’d out and you won’t even know it. But there’s a simple way you can defeat the GOP's vote-thieving tricks: Re-register! #NationalVoterRegistrationDay #NVRD
3 months before an election, EVERYONE needs to check their voter registration to see if they’ve been removed. And if you have been removed — or you've not registered yet, there's no better day to do it than TODAY! rollingstone.com/politics/polit… #NationalVoterRegistrationDay #NVRD
Register yourself. Then help register your partner, your family — and your Twitter friends by sharing this.

Friends don't let friends lose their vote!

Democrat #DanMcCready supposedly lost the special election in #NorthCarolina’s 9th Congressional District to Republican #DanBishop by less than 4,000 votes. However, racially biased #VoterSuppression schemes easily account for the GOP "victory" margin. gregpalast.com/jim-crow-steal…
Under the violently partisan Elections Board chief Kim Strach, #NorthCarolina targeted 561,693 voters based on the measurably racist and absurdly wrong #Crosscheck list created by the discredited #KrisKobach of Kansas. gregpalast.com/jim-crow-steal… #NorthCarolinaSpecialElection
The vote scam, which I exposed for @RollingStone and Al Jazeera, showed that well over 100,000 voters were wrongly purged for supposedly being registered or voting in two states. rollingstone.com/politics/polit… #NorthCarolinaSpecialElection

I don't trust polls, they're not that accurate if they are before an election because the pollsters have to figure out if you're going to vote or not. The polls that really count are the #ExitPolls—and in #Wisconsin, #Pennsylvania & #Michigan, #HillaryClinton won the exit polls.
So what happened in #Wisconsin if you had a 4% victory in the #ExitPolls? How did Trump win? The answer is, you tell an exit pollster how you voted, but you don't know if your vote was counted. gregpalast.com/election-stole…
You don't know if the machine kicked out your vote. You don't know that if you filled out a #ProvisionalBallot and it was disqualified.

We get asked A LOT about the #Recount in #Michigan. What happened? Why were the DNC's lawyers MIA? Why did Clinton give up without a fight.

This report from 2016, written by a volunteer observer with #RecountMichigan, is well worth a read: medium.com/@nick_sharp/wh…
This account tallies with what we heard from witnesses we interviewed for a report we did for @DemocracyNow: democracynow.org/2016/12/13/gre… #Michigan #Detroit #Flint #Election2016 #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud #VotingRights #CivilRights #Recount #Recount2016
@democracynow The DNC and Clinton’s lawyers were literally missing in action. They did not protect the Black voters’ ballots of #Michigan. Trump’s lawyers prevented the counting of the 75,355 uncounted ballots that would have unquestionably led to loss of a state he "won" by 10,700 votes.

BREAKING: Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Affirms Block on Indiana #Crosscheck Voter Purge Law wbiw.com/2019/08/27/fed… #InterstateCrosscheck #VoterPurge #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud #Election2020 #VotingRights #Indiana
Another bullet in #Crosscheck: Indiana can’t use the list without sending out postcards to victims. As students, people of color, and the poor move more than white suburbanites, this will still mean that nearly 100,000 Indiana voters who've wrongly lost their vote are in trouble.

The Russians did not remove 1.1 million voters under this phony, racist system called #Crosscheck. The Russians did not fail to count 75,355 ballots in Detroit, MI, handing that state to #Trump. The Russians did not illegally purge a third of a million voters in Georgia...
Whatever the Russians did... that’s illegal, that’s bad. But that was not what elected Donald Trump. What elected Donald Trump was a massive, racist vote purge system and a system of blocking people from voting with gimmicks like ‘Where’s your Voter ID?’ therealnews.com/stories/corpor…

Cuomo: "What would you do if the President said, 'I am a racist'"
Kobach: "Then I would not defend him."
Cuomo: "Would you still support him as President?"
Kobach: "I don't know."
Cuomo: "You have to think about whether or not you would support a racist?"
#KrisKobach has a long history of racism. He started out as a lawyer for a white supremacist group called FAIR, which says its purpose is to maintain a European majority America. podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/pal…
#KrisKobach's the author of SB 1070, which the ACLU calls the Driving While Brown law. And he's very proud of the fact he came up with the idea for Trump's wall — and that Mexico would pay for it. gregpalast.com/trump-may-name…

According to Secretary of Commerce, Wilbur Ross' own experts, the inclusion of the citizenship question will result in a loss of 6.5 million Americans from the census #Census2020
Why is the #Census2020 citizenship question so dangerous? According to a memorandum to Eric Holder from the Justice Department, under Section 215 of the Patriot Act, census information can be used for investigating non-U.S. persons. #Census2020
It goes beyond ICE. #KKKobach has been up front about why he wants the citizenship question on #Census202. In fact, they used it in court... They said, we need this question to enforce the Voting Rights Act and the National Voter Registration Act.

Kris Kobach’s #Crosscheck voter purge program is inherently racist. Under the guise of catching so-called double voters, it crudely matches the first and last names of voters across states. kboo.fm/media/72437-gr… #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud
U.S. Census data shows that minorities are overrepresented in 85 of 100 of the most common last names. rollingstone.com/politics/polit…
And now #KrisKobach is trying to add a citizenship question to the US #Census2020 that could result in even more legal minority voters being illegally purged from the rolls and/or deterred from voting. gregpalast.com/kris-kobachs-b… #InterstateCrosscheck #Census #VoterSuppression

As I said on @JuliannaForlano's radio show a few days ago, there is no way in hell that Kansas Republican senators would vote to confirm #KrisKobach. That’s why Trump wants to name him "Immigration Czar" which does not require senate confirmation. kansascity.com/news/politics-…
It’s time we stop “misunderestimating” Trump. That’s how Bush got reelected in 2004. gregpalast.com/trump-may-name… #KrisKobach #Crosscheck #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud #Immigration

Trump may name #KrisKobach as Immigration Czar. Their real agenda: 2020 vote suppression. gregpalast.com/trump-may-name…
It’s an especially cute move by Trump, as this newly crafted position, unlike an appointment to other cabinet level posts, will not require Senate approval, not even a hearing. gregpalast.com/trump-may-name…
I’ve been investigating #KKKobach for six years. He's the guy who drafted Arizona’s notorious “SB 1070” law which the ACLU dubbed the, “Driving While Brown law” – found unconstitutional by Federal Courts. latimes.com/nation/la-na-a…

After six years of investigating #KrisKobach’s Interstate #Crosscheck voter purge program, the entire racially biased, violently partisan #VoterSuppression tactic is on the verge of collapse gregpalast.com/interstate-cro…
Ten states in total have now withdrawn from the Interstate #Crosscheck system, including in the past few weeks, Arizona, Colorado, Pennsylvania and in alliance with my co-litigant, @RevJJackson, the state of Illinois gregpalast.com/illinois-drops…
And Kansas, after #KKKobach lost his race for Governor, has stopped creating the purge list for #Crosscheck states gregpalast.com/interstate-cro…

Another one bites the dust, following our lawyers’ notice of federal court action against #Arizona and #Crosscheck with my co-plaintiff Arizona ballot protection expert John Roberts Brakey. It’s state by state, hand to hand combat. 20 left to go! thehill.com/homenews/state…

On Sunday, Hillary Clinton walked over the Bridge at Selma to commemorate Bloody Sunday. She finally said that the gutting of the #VotingRights Act, in other words racist #VoterSuppression, cost her the election. aol.com/article/news/2…
I’d like to hear @HillaryClinton specifically come out against the racially-biased-by-design #InterstateCrosscheck system created by #KrisKobach, which helped #Trump steal the White House in 2016 — and will do so again in 2020, unless we stop it. rollingstone.com/politics/polit…

The @RevJJackson and I are co-plaintiffs in a lawsuit against #Illinois over the use of #Crosscheck. The action would require the state to reveal the reasons for the removal of each of 550,000 voters purged from the Illinois voter rolls in 2017. gregpalast.com/greg-palast-an…

Ho ho ho! Now that #BrianKemp is no longer #Georgia's Secretary of State, his office has informed the Palast Investigative Fund attorneys that they are throwing in the towel in the Palast & Butler v. Kemp suit we filed in Atlanta Federal Court in October. gregpalast.com/look-what-sant…
This opens up the remainder of #BrianKemp’s infamous, racially-poisonous voter purge files. Specifically, #Georgia will produce the hidden #Crosscheck purge files given to Kemp by #KrisKobach of Kansas — files Kemp’s flunkies told us had been “lost.” gregpalast.com/our-lawsuit-ag…
This data, which we will be analyzing is, as one of #StaceyAbrams attorney told me, “a gold mine” which can be critical in the law suit brought by her organization #FairFightGeorgia and in the fight to beat back New #JimCrow vote suppression. gregpalast.com/stacey-abrams-…

Rather than face me in federal court, #Nevada’s Republican Secretary of State, Barbara K. Cegavske, turned over the list of every #Nevada voter whose registration she cancelled in 2016 and 2017 gregpalast.com/90000-purged-i… #StopTheSteal
Cegavske used the same notorious #PurgeByPostcard and #Crosscheck methods of cleansing #Nevada's voter rolls as GOP Secretaries of State #BrianKemp (Georgia) and #KrisKobach (Kansas) gregpalast.com/90000-purged-i…
Our experts, reviewing these lists, have found that the overwhelming majority of voters who have supposedly moved out of state or out of their home counties have, in fact, not moved an inch — most remain at their original registration address. gregpalast.com/las-vegas-and-…

My lawyer had to threaten #Georgia Secretary of State #BrianKemp with a lawsuit to force him to turn over the names of over half a million voters whose citizenship rights he quietly extinguished. gregpalast.com/gops-brian-kem…
My database expert went through #BrianKemp's #Georgia Purge List name by name and found:

1 Thousands who supposedly left the state but remain in Georgia
2 Thousands who moved from one end of town to another
3 Someone who moved from one apartment to another in the same building
#GeorgiaPurgeList: 108,000 of the names were on #KrisKobach's notorious #InterstateCrosscheck list — and only 2,000 of these purged #Crosscheck voters have left the state! gregpalast.com/gops-brian-kem…
