Why am I worried about 2020? I saw what happened in 2018 in Georgia. And the trick that was rolled out in Georgia in 2018 in being rolled out nationwide in about 20 states. #Election2020
We’re talking about the swing states: Ohio, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, and Arizona — which should be a blue state given its demographics, but not if you keep wiping out young people and voters of color from the rolls.
And they're not just wiping out a few voters, 14 million voters have been wiped off the voter rolls in the last two years! palastinvestigativefund.org/?StopThePurge2… #VanishingVoters #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud #VoterPurge #VotingRights #CivilRights #Election2020 #StopTheSteal

🚨 HUGE.

“The revelation that the office had been infected by a virus — and that no one was told about it for 3 years — is raising alarms in a state heavily targeted in 2016 by Russian hackers.”

Voter roll/tally changes weren’t part of CI & WERE NEVER INVESTIGATED by Congress.
Sounds like Link uncovered a cover up.

“She contacted FBI in Nov after a veteran IT employee told her that the office had been infected by a ransomware virus only a few weeks before the 2016 election. The virus was not publicly disclosed in 2016.”

Looking at you PA, MI, & WI.👀
Here’s what I think is going on, and correct me if I am wrong @CISAKrebs.

So basically, Krebs, you are the 2016 clean up guy? FBI has the state sign an NDA & then DHS AKA @CISAgov takes over for the “look-see”.

And we are supposed to trust *you*? #racket

#BrianKemp bleached the rolls whiter than white, removing over half a million voters from the rolls in #Georgia before the 2018 gubernatorial race against #StaceyAbrams — who was the first African American woman to run for Governor in the U.S. blavity.com/gov-brian-kemp…
But Kemp's racist vote-purging tricks go way beyond Georgia. He worked with #KrisKobach, Trump's Vote-Thief-in-Chief, who used the #InterstateCrosscheck voter purge list generated by Kemp in Georgia to target voters of color in 30 states. gregpalast.com/kemp-loses-vot…
That's what flipped #Michigan to Trump and helped steal the presidency in 2016. And it'll happen again in 2020, unless we're able to expose and stop the GOP's election-stealing tricks. rollingstone.com/politics/polit…

The court decision against #BrianKemp was a shocker. Our lawyers didn’t even ask for summary judgment — the Judge was fed up with Kemp’s lying and stonewalling.
But there's so many states left to go. I've just returned from #Wisconsin — the ultimate swing state — where I’ve gotten the inside info on the latest push to purge 247,000.
Unusually, #Wisconsin (led by new Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes) is resisting the removals — and requesting our deep data. The dark clouds are parting but the storm isn’t over. Donate to support our work: palastinvestigativefund.org/?StopThePurge2… #VanishingVoters #StopTheSteal

Pay attention. Please.
It will be more important than ever to check sources, authors of news stories—national AND local. Here’s why...
Parscale has indicated that he plans to open up a new front in this war: local news.

Last year, he said the campaign intends to train “swarms of surrogates” to undermine negative coverage from local TV stations and newspapers. palmbeachpost.com/news/20190531/…

USA Today reports on #Ohio's voter purges noting that:

1. The young were disproportionately purged: Nearly 1 out of 3 purged voters was age 25 to 34. usatoday.com/in-depth/news/…
2. Where a party preference could be determined based on the last partisan primary in which the voter cast a ballot, Democrats outnumbered Republicans almost 2 to 1. usatoday.com/in-depth/news/…
Our experts have been screaming that the big purge attacks young voters — i.e. Democrats. The excuse is that they’ve moved out of #Ohio. They haven’t. They are students and renters who moved to a new dorm or down the street. rollingstone.com/politics/polit…

Trump's going to steal the 2020 election. It doesn't matter how good the Dem's campaign is or how much they spend on ads. Clinton outspent Trump by almost a $1 billion in 2016, but Trump is in the White House because we have an apartheid voting system. gregpalast.com/how-trumps-goi…
#Georgia's ground zero for vote theft. You think of it as a Republican state, but it's going to be the first Deep South white minority state. So the Dems can't lose — unless the GOP steals it from them! gregpalast.com/how-trumps-goi…
There aren't enough white people to elect Donald Trump in states like Georgia. That's WHY the Republicans have stepped up their vote thieving games, which could absolutely reelect Trump — no matter the will of the people. thelondoneconomic.com/opinion/donald…

We have databases with absolute proof that this purge is racist and illegal. @StaceyAbrams is covering the cost of our experts in #Georgia, where her organization, @FairFightAction is taking legal action using our evidence. news.yahoo.com/georgia-moving… #VanishingVoters
@staceyabrams @fairfightaction However, in #Wisconsin, a court decision is forcing a similar mass racist purge of 234,000 voters. It can be reversed. We are prepared to team up with WI Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes. courthousenews.com/wisconsin-elec… #VanishingVoters

In 2018, #StaceyAbrams lost by around 40,000 votes to #BrianKemp in the election for governor of #Georgia. Kemp was Secretary of State at the time and he quietly removed over half a million voters from the voter rolls. lawandcrime.com/civil-rights/s…
I sued #BrianKemp to get the names of the voters he'd #purged from the rolls. Turns out they were removed because they supposedly moved. But we found out that at least 340,134 had never, ever moved from their registration address, yet they lost their vote. gregpalast.com/georgias-brian…
We hired the top specialist in Address List Hygiene—a fancy term for people who track where every American lives. We looked at people who paid property tax in Atlanta, paid income tax in Georgia, people who were getting pizza deliveries on the morning of the election—in Georgia.

Stacey Abrams Hires Palast Investigations Team for Massive Federal Suit to Restore Voting Rights gregpalast.com/stacey-abrams-… #Crosscheck #PurgeByPostcard #VanishingVotes #StopTheSteal
While we're thrilled with this new alliance, it only covers #Georgia. We need to expose new, massive, illegal #VoterPurges in #Ohio, #Michigan, #NorthCarolina, #Florida, #Kentucky, #Wisconsin, #Nevada and other states. gregpalast.com/stacey-abrams-…
We’ve already filed preliminary legal actions in 20 states. Now we move to the expensive process of detailed computer analysis of each purge, voter by voter, more than a quarter million in each of these states. gregpalast.com/stacey-abrams-… #Crosscheck #PurgeByPostcard #VanishingVotes

Ah, the WashPo! Its headline says GOP “tried” to steal black #VotingRights. No, they succeeded!!! washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2… #NC09 #NorthCarolina #NorthCarolinaSpecialElection #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud #StopTheSteal
Of course, the #JeffBezos House Organ cannot bring itself to say that these #JimCrow tricks stole #NC09. So, may this one time statistician and sometime journalist say, “they stole the 9th.” gregpalast.com/jim-crow-steal… #NorthCarolina
Hey, @WashingtonPost, we've fixed your headline:

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

I don't trust polls, they're not that accurate if they are before an election because the pollsters have to figure out if you're going to vote or not. The polls that really count are the #ExitPolls—and in #Wisconsin, #Pennsylvania & #Michigan, #HillaryClinton won the exit polls.
So what happened in #Wisconsin if you had a 4% victory in the #ExitPolls? How did Trump win? The answer is, you tell an exit pollster how you voted, but you don't know if your vote was counted. gregpalast.com/election-stole…
You don't know if the machine kicked out your vote. You don't know that if you filled out a #ProvisionalBallot and it was disqualified.

😱 #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

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…
