Vote “#Caging” Gets legal? RNC Asks Court To Lift Consent Decree That Blocked #JimCrow Voter Purge Scam… #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud #Resist
Here’s an excerpt from a memo filed on November 5th, 2016 by the presiding US District Judge, John Michael Vazquez, which provides some background on the case… #Resist #Caging #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud
The Decree was modified and extended twice, in 1987 and 2009, but it's set to expire on December 17, 2017 — unless, as per Vazquez’s memo, “the DNC proved in the interim that the RNC violated the Decree, in which case the Decree would be extended an additional eight years.”
I discovered that the RNC was violating this Consent Decree in 2004, when my BBC Newsnight team caught George W. Bush’s campaign red-handed #Resist #Caging #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud
And, get this, #RoyMoore’s campaign chief, Brett Doster, was the one doing the dirty work in 2004 for George W. Bush in Florida!… #Resist #Caging #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud
The RNC was busted when a little bird gave me an email from Tim Griffin (Karl Rove’s dogsbody) to Doster (Moore’s goon) with a subject header marked "caging" — with one of the #caging lists attached. #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud
The full skinny on my investigation into the RNC’s racist #caging operation is chronicled in Chapter 13 of my book, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy. We've posted the complete chapter here:… #Resist #Caging #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud
