The new vote-fixing game in Georgia

Once again, it’s down to Georgia in the November 2022 midterm elections. Senator Reverend Warnock is running for reelection, and Stacey Abrams is running for governor against the incumbent Brian Kemp. It’s not a question of who’s going to win. The GOP’s decided it can’t win, so it’s figuring out how to not let the voters vote … READ MORE

The January 6th Committee and the 7 sets of phony electors
"You can smell the mendacity and the subpoenas”

The January 6th committee has subpoenaed 14 GOP operatives from 7 states to ask them who is behind their very strange, and very dangerous attempt to overturn the election, by providing 7 sets of phony electors. They want to know who was behind this scheme, because it’s a fraud upon the government and looks like a crime. Chairman Thompson, I’m going to give you a hint… READ MORE

There were 29 phone calls between Trump and Raffensperger
What was said in those other calls?

I don’t think it’s just Donald Trump that’s in trouble now that a special grand jury is being impaneled at the request of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. The Republicans, including Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, were playing fast and loose with accusations of voter fraud. I wouldn’t be surprised if… READ MORE

What we need are more Alcee Hastings
(September 5, 1936 – April 6, 2021)

What we need are more Alcee Hastings. In 2016, Congressman Hastings called me. He’d given Attorney General Loretta Lynch a copy of my Rolling Stone exposé of the Jim Crow “Interstate Crosscheck” voter purge program. But he wasn’t fooling around: Despite pushing 80, he walked across the Potomac bridge to the Justice Department to put it directly into… READ MORE

Don’t Buy Exxon’s Fable Of The Drunken Captain

Today, March 24, the 32nd Anniversary of the Exxon Valdez disaster will be commemorated with the re-telling of lies. The official story is, “Drunken Skipper Hits Reef.” Don’t believe it.
Days after the oil tanker slimed 1,200 miles of Alaska’s coastline, I was in Prince William Sound, launching an investigation for the Chugach Natives of Alaska. It was their coastline. This story remains… READ MORE

Voting Gangnam Style: The Rise of Kim Crow

The Asian-American community is the fastest growing community in Atlanta and it’s the one that put Warnock and Ossoff over the top — and that scares the hell out of Georgia Republicans. So the Asian-American community are the prime target of their vote suppression attacks — it’s not just Jim Crow, now it’s Kim Crow. But the vote suppression of the Asian-American community is not… READ MORE

Linda Blackmon Lowry

Remembering Bloody Sunday 1965
Selma, Alabama

Today we commemorate Bloody Sunday. Linda Blackmon Lowry, the youngest marcher, was beaten so badly by cops on the Pettus Bridge, she was put in a hearse, presumed dead. She took me over the bridge with fellow marchers from 1965, Marcia Edwards and Sen. Hank Sanders. Knowing the danger, Martin Luther King asked a congregation in Selma, “Who will walk with me?” Today, I met with our attorneys on the suits we are re-invigorating in… READ MORE

Texas Gets Lay’d: How the Bush Family turned off the lights

Maybe because Texas gave us that wet-lipped huckster Ted Cruz, you think the state deserves to freeze in the dark. I get that, but it’s not their fault, a least not the victims burning family heirlooms to stave off frostbite. “What happened was entirely predictable,” power distribution expert attorney Beth Emory said of the blackouts. She told me this… READ MORE
