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…

The @RevJJackson and I are co-plaintiffs in a lawsuit against #Illinois over the use of #Crosscheck. The action would require the state to reveal the reasons for the removal of each of 550,000 voters purged from the Illinois voter rolls in 2017. gregpalast.com/greg-palast-an…

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-…

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…

As our legal team sends out notices of federal law violations, the vote snatchers are capitulating one by one — #Colorado gave up Friday! gregpalast.com/im-in-wichita-… #StopTheSteal
Here in Wichita, #Kobach is hiding. Should I check #Koch HQ? Bad news for you, Kris: Top #Kansas voting rights attorney Bob Eye will take you on for us—pro bono (my favorite two words from a lawyer). gregpalast.com/im-in-wichita-… #StopTheSteal

I am so grateful for donations. #Kobach’s stone wall is expensive to climb. And we also have to fly the whole crew to Atlanta on the #BrianKemp hunt. gregpalast.com/im-in-wichita-… #StopTheSteal
Thanks to @StaceyAbrams for showing me another purge trick she spied by viewing the files — removing voters because they’ve moved *INTO* #Georgia!!!
And thanks to our researcher and cameraman @zdroberts for sweet-talking a Kemp flunky into turning over #Georgia's secret #Crosscheck list :) projects.aljazeera.com/2014/double-vo…

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-…

#Crosscheck “stymied"? #NewHampshire and #Maine JOINED the program. And #Indiana is absolutely still in the program and purged voters simply because they were on #Kobach’s list — which even Kobach says violated the NVRA. salon.com/2018/08/06/red…
Furthermore, the Supreme Court APPROVED #Crosscheck removals if a POSTCARD is sent and not returned. gregpalast.com/ohios-junk-mai… #PurgeByPostcard #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud
#INDIANA IS STILL REMOVING VOTERS USING #CROSSCHECK. I’m not guessing. I have filed formal open records demands in 27 Crosscheck states — and, with @RevJJackson, sent formal notice of intent to file federal suit for Crosscheck records. gregpalast.com/suing-ohio-kan… #StopTheSteal

#Crosscheck dead? Sorry, but the reports that Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny have ended Crosscheck are dead wrong. salon.com/2018/08/06/red…
Some mendacious GOP hacks are claiming they won’t use #Crosscheck this year, but in legal papers in response to our lawsuit notices sent to 26 Crosscheck states, just one, #Kentucky, confirms they’re pulling out.
Yes, I’d love to take credit for putting a bullet into this ugly purge system, and we’ve pushed a couple out, but nearly every GOP state is bleaching their voter rolls white with #Crosscheck—and now add #NewHampshire.

#Maine SoS Dunlap accuses Kobach of "troubling bias" & calls his claim that there's huge numbers of fraudulent voters "bizarre". Yet Dunlap is the ONLY Demo SoS to join Kobach’s bizarre & biased Crosscheck—which threatens to purge 1,062,818 Maine voters! washingtonpost.com/news/politics/…
Dupe? Dullard? Or Duplicitous? Dunlap, are you just another duplicitous politician singing different tunes to different audiences? I intend to find out: I’m suing your a** in 40 days unless you cough up the names of the thousands of voters you've purged on #Kobach’s say-so.

ICYMI: Russian Cyber Hacks on U.S. Electoral Far Wider Than Known. It was almost double–39 states, not 21

Russia actively infiltrated and successfully manipulated our democracy and free elections. They actively infiltrated through voter disinformation & “data operations.”

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?

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.

1/12 Trump dissolved his voter fraud commission today. In its 6 months of existence, the commission accomplished basically nothing but caused a lot of controversy. I’ve been covering it from the beginning — let’s review it from start to finish.
2/ Trump formed the commission in March, after spending the start of his presidency asserting with no evidence that millions of people voted illegally. propublica.org/article/theres…
3/ The commission’s first action was in June, when it requested substantial amounts of voter information from every state. propublica.org/article/presid…
