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-…

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…

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-…

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
