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…

😱 #Ohio is set to purge 235,000 voters from the rolls TODAY!!! The state ALREADY removed 265,000 voters from the rolls in January, so with this latest purge, half a million voters will have been removed so far this year. huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/ohio-vot…
Ohio is using the same discredited, biased #PurgeByPostcard game our team is fighting in #Georgia. Our experts say the method is over 70% wrong. That’s 200,000 voters in Ohio set to be wrongly purged TODAY!!! gregpalast.com/georgias-brian…
Bob Fitrakis, a top #VotingRights attorney, has already notified #Ohio's GOP Secretary of State, Frank LaRose, that he plans to sue in federal court under the National Voter Registration Act. This purge is a CRIME, and when they steal Ohio they steal the nation. #NVRA

As @darreldrowland of @DispatchAlerts reports, "#Ohio already removed 265,000 from the voter rolls earlier this year, meaning if another 235,000 come off the books Friday, half-a-million will have been removed this year." dispatch.com/news/20190903/… #PurgeByPostcard #ElectionFraud

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…

#BrianKemp, #Georgia’s secretary of state, purged 550,702 Georgians from the voter rolls in 2016 and 2017. gregpalast.com/georgias-brian…
How did #Kemp pull off this mass extinction of #VotingRights? Besides what I call the “#PurgeByPostcard trick” to remove a third of a million voters, Kemp has a devil’s toolkit of vote-bending tricks…

Last year, #BrianKemp canceled the registrations of over 500,000 #Georgia voters because they left the state or moved to another county. Except they didn’t. Experts in address location found 340,134 victims of #ThePurge had never moved at all. truthout.org/articles/georg…
WARNING: In addition to the 340,134 who never moved from their original registration addresses, Kemp wrongly purged thousands more who did move, but within their county. (If you move within your county — you need not re-register and should not be purged.) truthout.org/articles/georg…
How did #BrianKemp get away with this mass flushing of the voter rolls? I call it, “#PurgeByPostcard.” gregpalast.com/georgias-brian…

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-…

#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

The #PurgeByPostcard is not about people moving, it’s about moving people off the voter rolls. Students who’ve moved dorm rooms and poor people who’ve moved down the street or lost their homes are losing their vote. #StopTheSteal
They removed people because they were overwhelmingly young people, poor people and voters of color. If we can prove that a postcard is not a reasonable method of determining whether someone has moved, they can’t enforce the SCOTUS decision. It won’t stand. gregpalast.com/suing-ohio-kan…

The #PurgeByPostcard, which was ratified by #SCOTUS last week, is something that could flip the midterm elections and will be truly dangerous when it really grips by 2020. vimeo.com/276127388
But we can reverse the purges. We’re going to prove what everyone knows, that #PurgeByPostcard is a bogus way of removing the poor, the young, and people of color — who overwhelming vote blue — from the voter rolls. gregpalast.com/suing-ohio-kan… #StopTheSteal
