#Mississippi: Ugly Old Trick Targets #MikeEspy Voters gregpalast.com/mississippi-mi… #MississippiRunoff #MississippiSenateRace
Mike Espy, US Senate candidate, reveals the return of an outlawed #VoteSuppression tactic aimed at elderly voters. In the vote-stealing biz it’s called "push polling" in which a fake pollster cons a voter out of their vote. gregpalast.com/mississippi-mi…
Push-polling was infamously successful in elections in years past. For example, in 1996, supporters of Republican Sam Brownback, posing as pollsters, used it against Democrat Jill Docking. Funds for the “push polls” were traced back to Koch Industries. gregpalast.com/mississippi-mi…

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?
