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.

And may I remind you, Mr. Kemp, you are scheduled to meet us in federal court in Atlanta. gregpalast.com/we-sued-brian-… #BrianKemp #Georgia #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud
And for those of you who think the work of our little team has no effect, just ask #KrisKobach who lost his bid for Governor of #Kansas last night.

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-…

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…

GOP’s #BrianKemp Purged 1 in 10 #Georgia Voters: I’ve Got the Names truthout.org/articles/gops-… via @truthout
My database expert went through the #GeorgiaPurgeList 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
My database expert also found that 108,000 of the names on #BrianKemp’s purge list were also on #KrisKobach's notorious #InterstateCrosscheck list — and only 2,000 of these purged #Crosscheck voters have left the state! truthout.org/articles/gops-… #GeorgiaPurgeList

We have a massive non-count of votes in America. Over one million ballots nationwide — in any election — are never counted. They are disqualified for cockamamie technical reasons. gregpalast.com/have-you-check…
I’m not talking about some guy with machines changing a vote from Democrat to Republican on a computer. I’m talking about if you mail in your ballot, they can challenge it and toss it. gregpalast.com/have-you-check… #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud #StopTheSteal
People worry about getting their vote stolen by a machine, so they mail it in. But you just went double or nothing with your vote, because that makes it easier for them. The number one way #KrisKobach won the #KansasPrimary was by disqualifying ballots that were mailed in.

#Kansas voting board crushes a challenge to #KrisKobach’s 343 vote "win" in the Republican gubernatorial primary. The judges: 3 GOP party hacks led by #Kobach’s assistant, Eric Rucker. kansascity.com/news/politics-… #KansasPrimary
The challenger, @Davis_Hammet of @loud_light, told me that, weirdly, Brant Laue also voted against counting about 4,000 uncounted ballots—even though Laue, in his day job as Chief Counsel for Governor Jeff Colyer, had written an official letter DEMANDING Kobach count the votes.
There’s democracy and then there’s #Kansas. It’s easy to tell them apart.

With the pro bono help of the firm of Mirer Mazzocchi & Julien, we are filing under the National Voter Registration Act to get the names of every one of the million voters purged from voter rolls using #KrisKobach’s infamous #Crosscheck program. gregpalast.com/im-in-wichita-…
We’ve sent legal notices to all 27 states in #KrisKobach’s #Crosscheck program to turn over their lists. While #Kobach has stonewalled us, a number of states including #Michigan and #Oklahoma, have turned over their hit lists rather than face us in court. gregpalast.com/im-in-wichita-…

To steal the #KansasPrimary, Secretary of State #KrisKobach’s using all the tricks on incumbent Republican Gov. #JeffColyer that the GOP has used against Black voters for years... gregpalast.com/ohio-special-e…
Tossing away provisional ballots and absentee ballots on cockamamie excuses; votes locked irretrievably in machines. No tears, #Colyer: you were a cheerleader for #Kobach’s vote games! docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/e21a55_397… #KrisKobach #JeffColyer #KansasPrimary #ElectionFraud

Yesterday, the GOP’s #BrianKemp won the #Georgia gubernatorial primary. It is not coincidental that, as Secretary of State, he removed 591,548 names from the state’s voter rolls in 2017. We expect another big purge in the next few weeks. gregpalast.com/georgias-brian… #StopTheSteal
We've given #Georgia's Secretary of State, #BrianKemp, 40 days to provide every name of those purged—or he will face a federal lawsuit. Our initial investigation indicates the list is overloaded with voters of color and young voters, i.e. Democrats. gregpalast.com/palast-testifi…
#BrianKemp will face #StaceyAbrams in November for the governor’s seat. Abrams told me she fears this ethnic cleansing of voter rolls especially because it is partly directed by #KrisKobach of Kansas. gregpalast.com/georgias-brian… #Georgia #StopTheSteal

Whoa! Before we celebrate a judge’s smack-down of #KrisKobach, let me warn you that this race-baiting, democracy-hating creep-o is also one of the sharpest legal minds in America. thinkprogress.org/judge-orders-k…
The fact that this Harvard-Yale-Oxford graduate, like most law professors, doesn’t know spam about court procedure doesn't mean you should underestimate what this Satanic vote-thief can do. kansascity.com/news/politics-…
#KrisKobach #VoterSuppression #StopTheSteal
Here’s a tip for betting readers: #KrisKobach will win at the Supreme Court. Only his arrogance will defeat him — and our vigilance. gregpalast.com/suing-ohio-kan… #KKKobach #VoterSuppression #StopTheSteal

The American voting system is busted. Shattered. They’re trying to take away your vote by saying you’re not a citizen, by saying you voted in another state, by giving you provisional ballots for some cockamamie reason, by purging you from the voter rolls vimeo.com/269063461
These obstacles are put in the way of mostly voters of color — that’s the real issue. We have an apartheid election system in the US. And I’m very concerned that some groups and politicians talk about #VoteSuppression but avoid the issue of race. facebook.com/notes/greg-pal…
Q: Do you think that's out of fear, obliviousness, or something more sinister?

A: The Democratic Party was the party of #JimCrow. It’s in its DNA. If everyone got to vote, the party’s elite would be out on its ass — right, Bernie?

As soon as I heard #Trump was adding the question about whether you have a non-citizen in your household to the #census I smelled #KKKobach... #census2020 via @Thom_Hartmann
They’re basically turning the #census into a giant caging operation to get rid of real citizen voters by asking if you have a non-citizen in your household. #Census #census2020
They want to scare people off from voting and they want to scare people off from filling out the census... #census2020 #Census

Don’t be fooled by news of Trump's Executive Order dissolving the so-called Commission on Election Integrity. Trump is not ending the #KrisKobach scheme to attack, he’s moving it into Homeland Security as per Kobach’s original plan.
#Kobach gloats that Homeland Security is exempt from Freedom of Information Act demands and public hearings — that was part his original plan given to Trump. #FOIA
#Kobach claims Homeland Security can REQUIRE states to turn over voter records and can secretly gather lists of "double" or "alien" voters — this is #KKKobach’s "#Crosscheck" on steroids.
