The concept of #Crosscheck was simple and, at first glance, quite reasonable: states would share their voter rolls with its chief, #KrisKobach, who would look for voters registered in two states and remove the duplicates. Who could argue with that?…
The press praised #Crosscheck as a brilliant use of computers, and at its peak, 30 states joined the scheme. Almost all were Republican controlled, but some Democratic voting officials joined with enthusiasm. Who can defend fraudulent voters?… Image
But this bothered me: On Kobach’s Crosscheck site, the number of potential double voters, by 2015, totaled 7,264,422. Seven million double voter suspects? (Or, as Kobach would have it it, 3.6 million Americans voting or registering twice.)… Image

Trump, LYING HIS ASS OFF. In Nov when @JoeBiden whips his ass Trump will pull this BS and say he’s challenging the legitimacy of the election. What he says here is what the GOP does. Trump STEALING and SABOTAGE of election. #Michigan #TrumpDeathToll95K 1/
Trump projects what Republicans do. He mentioned Mike Garcia. Well, this is how Garcia won. This is what GOP will do this November: cheat. Trump’s GOP buddy Devin Nunes admitted to ballot harvesting for Garcia last week... 2/ #TrumpDeathToll95K #Michigan
In the video Devin Nunes from California, says of Mike Garcia: “it’s a traditionally Republican seat”(which it is.) Yet today Trump said it was Democratic. Key: this story is where Trump got his frenzy. But he omits context: #TrumpDeathToll95K #Michigan 3/

#BrianKemp bleached the rolls whiter than white, removing over half a million voters. 1 in 8 voters in #Georgia was flushed off the voter rolls. But the vote-rigging Kemp was involved in is not limited to Georgia...… #VanishingVoters
#BrianKemp was in a conspiracy, and I use that word very carefully, with #KrisKobach, the white supremacist former Secretary of State of Kansas who's Trump’s Vote-Thief-in-Chief.…
#BrianKemp worked with #KrisKobach not only to purge voters in #Georgia, but using Kobach's Interstate #Crosscheck system they targeted 7 million voters of color in 30 states. #VanishingVoters

I have the absolute proof that #BrianKemp stole the 2018 election from #StaceyAbrams — America's first major party African-American female gubernatorial nominee — by illegally removing 340,134 voters from #Georgia's rolls.…
We sued #BrianKemp to get his secret #Crosscheck voter purge lists and last week a federal judge agreed that the purge lists we're requesting are subject to the public disclosure provisions of the National Voter Registration Act.…
We want to get our hands on these racially-biased-by-design #Crosscheck purge lists because this story goes way beyond #Georgia and the gubernatorial race.

Trump's going to steal the 2020 election. It doesn't matter how good the Dem's campaign is or how much they spend on ads. Clinton outspent Trump by almost a $1 billion in 2016, but Trump is in the White House because we have an apartheid voting system.…
#Georgia's ground zero for vote theft. You think of it as a Republican state, but it's going to be the first Deep South white minority state. So the Dems can't lose — unless the GOP steals it from them!…
There aren't enough white people to elect Donald Trump in states like Georgia. That's WHY the Republicans have stepped up their vote thieving games, which could absolutely reelect Trump — no matter the will of the people.…

Great news ➡️ It took us six years of investigating... but, finally, #Kansas, which generates the #Crosscheck scrub lists for other states, has agreed to kill the program. This effectively ends the entire national #VoterPurge operation.… #VanishingVoters
But dangers still lurk:

1. At least a dozen states continue to use the old Crosscheck scrub lists. Astonishingly, this includes #Virginia, which the Democrats just won.… #VanishingVoters
2. The settlement, signed by #KrisKobach’s successor in #Kansas with the @ACLU, only stops #Crosscheck temporarily. The agreement permits it to return if the state installs cyber security protections.… #VanishingVoters

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!… #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.…
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.… #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.… #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.…
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:…
This account tallies with what we heard from witnesses we interviewed for a report we did for @DemocracyNow:… #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… #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?’…

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."

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.
