BREAKING: Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Affirms Block on Indiana #Crosscheck Voter Purge Law wbiw.com/2019/08/27/fed… #InterstateCrosscheck #VoterPurge #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud #Election2020 #VotingRights #Indiana
Another bullet in #Crosscheck: Indiana can’t use the list without sending out postcards to victims. As students, people of color, and the poor move more than white suburbanites, this will still mean that nearly 100,000 Indiana voters who've wrongly lost their vote are in trouble.

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

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Ten states in total have now withdrawn from the Interstate #Crosscheck system, including in the past few weeks, Arizona, Colorado, Pennsylvania and in alliance with my co-litigant, @RevJJackson, the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…

BREAKING: #Illinois Drops #InterstateCrosscheck Voter Purge Program — But Our Lawsuit Continues! gregpalast.com/illinois-drops… #StopTheSteal
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…
While I applaud #Illinois dropping this ugly, racist purge program, we will not rest until the thousands of voters wrongly removed have had their rights restored. Support our work by making a tax-deductible donation: palastinvestigativefund.org/?StopTheStealA… #StopTheSteal #StopCrossCheck

#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.

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…
