Yes, Obama got most of the votes and was inaugurated.
But 4.3 million votes were never counted – and another 4.8 million citizens were barred from registering or voting.
This book tells you how. And WHO. That is, WHO profited from the return of Jim Crow?
Includes 50 pages of comics from the smokin' pen of Ted Rall and two chapters by Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Obama may be "President," but he's not in charge. See the chapter, Petroleum Porn: The XXXL Pipeline, on how The Koch Brothers are about to stick the XL Pipeline up America's aquifers.
Mitt Romney may have lost the presidency, but he secretly gained $115 million on the auto bail-out. It's in the chapter, Wiped Away in 8-Mile.
And in Penny's from Heaven? Get the skinny on Obama's new choice for Secretary of Commerce–a billionaire banker bandit, the mean sub-prime queen, Penny Pritzker.

Here are the facts, ma'am:
In the 2008 election, no less than:
• 767,023 provisional ballots were cast and not counted;
• 1,451,116 ballots were "spoiled," not counted;
• 488,136 absentee ballots were mailed in, but not counted.
Add it up: in the last presidential election, no less than 2,706,275 ballots were cast—and never counted. I have not included a quarter million (251,936) provisional ballots counted only in part (that is, for some offices).
That's the official number I've calculated from the records of the US Election Assistance Commission.1 Approximately three million votes flushed away are ugly enough. But it gets worse.
In addition to the roughly three million ballots cast and not counted, no less than:
• 2,383,587 would-be voters had their registrations rejected;
• 491,952 voters already registered were wrongly purged from the rolls; and
