#Trump was not elected president because he did not win the electoral vote via @RealTimBlack #TimBlackShow #Resist
#Trump used the same trick as George W did in Florida. By removing voters of color in 28 states, Trump supposedly won the electoral college.
#Trump is not our legitimate president, rather he's the Commander-in-Thief! via @RealTimBlack #TimBlackShow #Resist
#Trump stole the election using the most racist, #JimCrow, ugly tactics you can imagine & no one stood in the way! palastinvestigativefund.org/trumpstoleit
To find out how #KKKobach helped #Trump steal the election w/ his racist #Crosscheck vote purging op, watch my film thebestdemocracymoneycanbuy.com/dvd-streaming/
#Georgia recently removed 591,500 voters from its voter rolls & no one raised a peep! myajc.com/news/state--re… #Crosscheck #VoterSuppression
In addition to this year's purge, #Georgia "removed almost 732,800 voters in its previous round of rolls cleanup between 2014 and 2016."
That's how #KarenHandel won the #GA06 special election—as Secretary of State she & her successor Brian Kemp (R) whitewashed GA voter rolls.
When I asked #KarenHandel about the GOP #JimCrow tactics I’d uncovered, things got real ugly gregpalast.com/democracy-now-…
The #GA06 election & the presidential election was stolen by #JimCrow. We've got to blow the whistle on that & get this info out—so plz RT!!
Right now, 28 states are participating in #KKKobach's racist #Crosscheck voter purging op gregpalast.com/wp-content/upl… #Resist #VoterSuppression
It was more. Washington state pulled out, as did Oregon & New York. Even #Florida pulled out because of the heat #Crosscheck might attract.
And Pennsylvania, which had toyed with joining #Crosscheck, decided not to after the @ACLU asked some key questions. vimeo.com/180376253
But we have a Democratic Governor, @TerryMcAuliffe, that has allowed #Crosscheck to continue to remove voters from rolls in #Virginia!?!
#Virginia has a Democratic Governor AND a Democratic Board of Elections—why the heck are they still in this GOP, #JimCrow voter purging op?
That's why we're holding a #VotingRightsProject event in #Virginia on Sept 9. Join us -> facebook.com/events/9865875… #StopCrossCheck #Resist
This is NOT a partisan issue, it's about #VotingRights and voting wrongs. We've got to #StopCrossCheck and the new #JimCrow. #Resist
#KKKobach is trying to force every state to join #Crosscheck using his appointment to #Trump's so-called "Election Integrity" Commission.
...Or have every state turn over their voter rolls so he can add those names into the #Crosscheck database. gregpalast.com/republican-sta… #Resist
So if, for example, California turns over its voter rolls to #KKKobach, they'll use those names to kick more people off in other states.
If that happens, many more people sharing names like García, López, Sánchez and Hernandez will fall victim to #Crosscheck across the US.
This is a REAL #Crosscheck "match" BTW. Maria Isabel Hernandez (GA) is supposed to be the same person as Maria Christina Hernandez (LA)?!?
The so-called "Double Voters" #Crosscheck finds are merely legal voters with similar names — who statistically are more likely to be POC.
For more on how and why minority names are overrepresented in #Crosscheck lists, read my report for @ajam projects.aljazeera.com/2014/double-vo… #Resist
The reason #Trump is our so-called President is because of #JimCrow tactics like #Crosscheck—and the #Democrats damn dead silence.
In fact, @HillaryClinton said no American president has ever challenged the vote. Well, what about @AlGore in 2000?
#JImCrow tactics like #Crosscheck have got to end NOW! And we can't count on the politicians. We count on YOU!!!
I hope #Virginia Gov. @TerryMcAuliffe can make it to our Sept 9 #VotingRightsProject event & commit to pulling out of #KKKobach's Crosscheck
