#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... gregpalast.com/palast-scores-… #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. risingupwithsonali.com/2020/02/11/geo…
#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. vimeo.com/390830177 #VanishingVoters

#BrianKemp bleached the rolls whiter than white, removing over half a million voters from the rolls in #Georgia before the 2018 gubernatorial race against #StaceyAbrams — who was the first African American woman to run for Governor in the U.S. blavity.com/gov-brian-kemp…
But Kemp's racist vote-purging tricks go way beyond Georgia. He worked with #KrisKobach, Trump's Vote-Thief-in-Chief, who used the #InterstateCrosscheck voter purge list generated by Kemp in Georgia to target voters of color in 30 states. gregpalast.com/kemp-loses-vot…
That's what flipped #Michigan to Trump and helped steal the presidency in 2016. And it'll happen again in 2020, unless we're able to expose and stop the GOP's election-stealing tricks. rollingstone.com/politics/polit…

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. freespeech.org/stories/voter-…
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. gregpalast.com/judge-rules-ag…
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.

BREAKING: In an extraordinary move, Judge Eleanor Ross has declared #BrianKemp the loser in a lawsuit brought by our team to compel the State of #Georgia to open up its complete files on the mass purge of over half a million voters from the rolls. gregpalast.com/kemp-loses-vot…
#BrianKemp and the new Secretary of State of #Georgia want to keep the lid on their methods for removing literally hundreds of thousands of low-income, young and minority voters on the basis of false information. They cannot hide any more. gregpalast.com/kemp-loses-vot…
This is a huge win and precedent for reporters trying to pry information from the hands of guilty officials. gregpalast.com/kemp-loses-vot… #BrianKemp #Georgia #VoterPurge #VanishingVoters

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…

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. gregpalast.com/we-have-mortal… #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. gregpalast.com/virginia-using… #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. truthout.org/articles/kansa… #VanishingVoters

Responding to my complaint, the Kansas Disciplinary Administrator just notified me that #KrisKobach admitted to unethical conduct & was referred to a diversion program. Kobach should have been disbarred. He was held in contempt of court. He's corrupt. scribd.com/document/43244…
Here is a copy of my complaint against Kobach. scribd.com/document/37684…
#KrisKobach is running to be elected as a U.S. Senator representing Kansas. I hope the people of Kansas don't elect a man who has admitted to unethical conduct while he was Secretary of State. Why would you promote an admittedly unethical & incompetent official?

The mass removal of 183,000 #Ohio voters from the rolls is a clear violation of the National Voter Registration Act gregpalast.com/ohios-junk-mai… #NVRA #PurgeByPostcard
With attorney Robert Fitrakis of Columbus, #Ohio, and Jeanne Mirer of New York coordinating our national legal effort, we'll prove these removals are illegal as we did in #Georgia where our team is working with @StaceyAbrams@FairFightAction. gregpalast.com/suing-ohio-kan…

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

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…

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

Why is #KrisKobach so Dangerous? soundcloud.com/user-835943867…
#Kobach, for all his wacky moves, has degrees from Yale, Harvard, and Oxford. He is a brilliant and dangerous spider in the Right Wing web. soundcloud.com/user-835943867…
#Kobach's a master criminal, in the sense that he has violated the law again, and again, and again. But he’s brilliant at coming up with sophisticated and bogus arguments, making stuff sound reasonable and legal, when it’s not even close to it. soundcloud.com/user-835943867…

Kansas City Star: #Kobach promised cities help. It cost them millions — and powered his political rise kansascity.com/news/politics-…
"#Kobach used his work in Valley Park to attract other clients, with sometimes disastrous effects on the municipalities.... Farmers Branch, Texas, wound up owing $7 million in legal bills..." kansascity.com/news/politics-…
What's missing from this story is our investigatrix Badpenny’s crucial finding — as featured in The Best Democracy Money Can Buy — that $100,000 of the money paid to #KrisKobach by Farmers Branch, TX came from the #Kochs via several shell foundations. amazon.com/Best-Democracy…

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

Gerrymandering, #VoterSuppression, a crisis at the border, all these things go together. That’s why #KrisKobach is so dangerous. He’s kind of like a Steve Bannon, he’s a very brilliant guy with a widespread understanding of how all these thing interlock in a most dangerous way.
It's not about securing the borders, it's not about stopping illegal aliens, it's not about stopping drug traffic, it's about creating hysteria so they can stop certain groups of legitimate voters from voting. nuarchive.wbai.org/mp3/wbai_19040…
If you want to beat Beto O’Rourke out of Texas, take away his voter base by scaring them off. If you want to take away Democratic control of the House, shrink Democratic districts. You shrink the population in those districts so you can gerrymander them. nuarchive.wbai.org/mp3/wbai_19040…

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…

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…

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-…

#Mississippi fanatically attacked its voter rolls using #KrisKobach’s #InterstateCrosscheck list which targeted 146,054 voters in the state. From our #Georgia experience, about 29,000 voters would have been purged in 2017, just before the election.
We cannot give the exact number because the state is withholding the info. So, my attorneys have notified the state they will be facing a lawsuit under the National Voter Registration Act — the same lawsuit that forced #BrianKemp to cough up the #Georgia purge list.

ALERT! #Colorado Secretary of State Wayne W. Williams has stonewalled our request for complete info about the voters he has purged—that is, CANCELLED off the voter rolls. gregpalast.com/colorado-voter…
Unlike other states, Williams is keeping secret the address of voters which the law requires he make public. As a result of this violation of the provisions of the National Voter Registration Act, we can't provide the confirming info we have given voters in several other states.
Therefore, especially if you have a common name such as Jame Brown, you could get a “false positive” — that is, we can correctly confirm that some James Browns have been purged, but we can’t confirm that is you. #ColoradoPurgeList

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-…
