I’m suing Trump’s “Purge’n General” #KrisKobach.

@RevJJackson is joining me. Will you?

Support this action and help put an end to this vote thievery once and for all:…
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.…
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.…
Next. it’s on to Atlanta, #Georgia—where I will personally serve #BrianKemp with the suit. Kemp, like #Kobach, has refused our demand for the names of those he’s purged. And when Brian purges, he doesn’t mess around: blacking out 591,000 voters in 2017.…
#BrianKemp apparently fears he can’t win unless he bleaches the voter rolls whiter than white. Kemp is running against Democrat #StaceyAbrams, America’s first Black female candidate for Governor.… #Georgia #StopTheSteal
This is the most ambitious journalistic and legal operation in the history of the Palast Investigative Fund. The nation, democracy itself, is at stake.

Help us:…

Together we can #StopTheSteal
View a copy of the letter we sent to #KrisKobach on June 12, 2018 requesting records under the National Voter Registration Act and giving him formal notice of our legal action:… #StopTheSteal #NVRA
In addition to our records request under the #NVRA we have also put #KrisKobach on notice that he is ALREADY in violation of the Kansas Open Records Act for failing to respond to a prior request.…
"The 1993 National Voter Registration Act was passed with an explicit mandate to all levels of government to expand and protect the voting rights of American citizens."… #NVRA
"#Crosscheck has repeatedly come under criticism for the inaccuracy of the data it provides to participating states... Crosscheck's methods also disproportionately target voters of color."… #StopTheSteal
"#Crosscheck is precisely the kind of maintenance program Congress had in mind when it created the public disclosure provisions of the #NVRA."… #StopTheSteal
"Due to the potential for legitimate voters to be erroneously removed from the registered voter lists as a result of #Crosscheck data — and the egregious impact such error could have on voters of color — it is of paramount importance that this data be released to the public..."
This June 12, 2018 letter marked the beginning of a 90-day window to remedy #KrisKobach and #Kansas' lack of compliance with the National Voter Registration Act "after which an aggrieved individual may bring a civil suit."…
⏰ TiK ToK. TiK ToK. Time's almost up #KKKobach!!!…
Guess where I am...?
