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. gregpalast.com/how-trumps-goi…
#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! gregpalast.com/how-trumps-goi…
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. thelondoneconomic.com/opinion/donald…

The #Georgia ruling against Fair Fight in its suit to restore 100K GA voters to the rolls comes on the heels of a devastating ruling by a #Wisconsin court that orders the state to purge 234K voters even though the state has declared the purge list faulty gregpalast.com/hunting-season…
On December 13, Wisconsin Ozaukee County judge Paul Malloy ordered the state elections board to remove 234,000 voters from the rolls on the petition of a right-wing group, despite the board determining that the purge would remove legal voters. jsonline.com/story/news/pol…
The precedent is astonishing. It's the first time a state's been ordered to remove citizens en masse. In 2018, SCOTUS allowed states to remove voters on evidence they’d moved. But no state has been forced to remove voters—especially in light of evidence that the lists are faulty.

Two new court decisions have blessed mass voter purges in two swing states, #Georgia and #Wisconsin. This could be the launch of a new system for purging voters of color and young people that's expected to spread before the 2020 Presidential election. gregpalast.com/hunting-season…
In Atlanta on Friday, Federal Judge Steve Jones ruled against @StaceyAbrams#VotingRights organization @FairFightAction in its suit to immediately restore nearly 100,000 Georgians to the voter rolls. #VanishingVoters gregpalast.com/federal-court-…
@staceyabrams @fairfightaction #Georgia’s Secretary of State was using a method we call #PurgeByPostcard. Under the guise of “voter list maintenance,” Georgia sent out postcards that look like cheap junk mail. When a voter fails to return the card, they lose their vote. gregpalast.com/federal-court-… #VanishingVoters

Today I let @brashcan know that I’d be supporting @ewarren in the primary here in #georgia. It took me a long time to come to that conclusion. You see, I have been a Bernie fan since 2015. Still am. Bernie started a movement and speaks to a side of me that is fed up. (1/8)
A side of me that’s pissed off and knows that we can do better. Bernie’s commitment to the same ideals and struggles for his whole life is admirable and worthy of our respect. (2/8)
I saw Warren speak in February of 2019 and I left feeling uniquely impacted by her story, her growth, her passion. To this day, the only politician I’ve ever seen speak that can illicit an emotional reaction out of my the way @ewarren can was @staceyabrams. (3/8)

We have databases with absolute proof that this purge is racist and illegal. @StaceyAbrams is covering the cost of our experts in #Georgia, where her organization, @FairFightAction is taking legal action using our evidence. news.yahoo.com/georgia-moving… #VanishingVoters
@staceyabrams @fairfightaction However, in #Wisconsin, a court decision is forcing a similar mass racist purge of 234,000 voters. It can be reversed. We are prepared to team up with WI Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes. courthousenews.com/wisconsin-elec… #VanishingVoters
@staceyabrams @fairfightaction But bluntly, we simply don’t have one penny to do this work. If you give a damn, here’s the link to make a tax-deductible donation: palastinvestigativefund.org/?StopThePurge2…

@GovKemp all due respect, will you please consider @RepDougCollins to replace the distinguished retiring senator. I'm sure Kelly Loeffler is a smart woman, but at this critical juncture, we need experience. This was the thought process voters used when voting for you. #Georgia
Patriots it's imperative we respectful get the governor’s attention on this appointment. With everything going on with the Democrats we need a solid player supporting President Trump.
@seanhannity thank you for calling attention to this matter. Hopefully the governor will do the right thing.

#StaceyAbrams’ non-profit @FairFightAction has retained our team of experts to provide court testimony, based on our six years of investigation, in Fair Fight’s federal law suit to overturn #Georgia’s massive, racially biased purge of voters. gregpalast.com/stacey-abrams-…
@fairfightaction Our experts will testify that this new #JimCrow system not only fixed #Georgia's 2018 gubernatorial race between #StaceyAbrams and then GOP Secretary of Sate #BrianKemp — but has since gone all over the nation. gregpalast.com/stacey-abrams-… #VanishingVoters
@fairfightaction There are 20 states — mostly GOP-controlled — who are using the same #PurgeByPostcard system to remove voters from the rolls illegally. Please donate so we can expose it: palastinvestigativefund.org/?StopThePurge2… #VanishingVoters

The Purged: The #VanishingVoters of Trump’s America gregpalast.com/stacey-abrams-…
In 2018, we uncovered 340,134 voters illegally removed from #Georgia’s voter rolls by Secretary of State #BrianKemp while he was running for Governor against Stacey Abrams. gregpalast.com/georgias-brian… #VanishingVoters
This was #BrianKemp’s secretive “cleansing” operation that won him the election over #StaceyAbrams, the first black woman in American history to run for governor. gregpalast.com/gops-brian-kem… #VanishingVoters

In 2018, #StaceyAbrams lost by around 40,000 votes to #BrianKemp in the election for governor of #Georgia. Kemp was Secretary of State at the time and he quietly removed over half a million voters from the voter rolls. lawandcrime.com/civil-rights/s…
I sued #BrianKemp to get the names of the voters he'd #purged from the rolls. Turns out they were removed because they supposedly moved. But we found out that at least 340,134 had never, ever moved from their registration address, yet they lost their vote. gregpalast.com/georgias-brian…
We hired the top specialist in Address List Hygiene—a fancy term for people who track where every American lives. We looked at people who paid property tax in Atlanta, paid income tax in Georgia, people who were getting pizza deliveries on the morning of the election—in Georgia.

Version 3 of the #CFBPlayoff rankings were released last night. What you expected? If youve followed along since early Oct you know the process. You werent surprised. For the rest of you, lets take a look & compare to what was projected using the same process used for 5 yrs.
First off, why does the committee use this process? Think about it. 14 busy guys make up this committee. They have roughly 60 hrs from when the last game ends on Sat to when they need to have this Top 25 created on Tues. If they evaluate only 30 teams to get that 25, how much
time is adequate to evaulate? 1 hr? Thats 30 hrs of evaluation. Half the time is gone & no one has slept. The process of getting a consensus out of 14 people hasnt even started. Thats why this process is kept so simple, & its why they have a defined predictable process.

Georgians are building their nation and democracy today. Massive rally at the parliament building in Tbilisi. Thousands are demanding snap elections with fully proportional electoral system after ruling party failed to deliver on election reform.
#Tbilisi #TbilisiProtests
Opposition blocked parliament entrances to not allow ruling Georgian Dream in until demands are met.
Heartwarming to see flags of #Ukraine, #US, #NATO, #EU along with Georgian.

Interesting evening spent with 4 senators at a very small gathering. LOTS of optimism—fueled by internal #poll data—that we will flip the Senate.

Maine: @SenatorCollins is DOWN by 2 points. Her #Kavanaugh vote decimated her approval rating — she went from 57 to the upper-30’s.😎
Senate breakdown is 53 @GOP—47 @SenateDems + Independent.

@DougJones faces a tough re-election bid, but @jeffsessions may split the anti-Roy Moore vote. If Moore wins the primary, Jones has a great chance.

If Jones loses, we need 4-5 seats to flip—4 if we win @POTUS, 5 if not.
In Colorado, @CoryGardner is in BIG trouble. John @Hickenlooper leads by 12 points!

In #NC, @ThomTillis is literally polling in the toilet (approval rating in the 20’s!), so another great pickup opportunity for @TheDemocrats.😎
