â€œThe Best Democracy Money Can Buy is a searing indictment of a rigged electoral system where hundreds of thousands of people of color are routinely denied the right to vote. Palast [is] one of our great investigative reporters… If you are not outraged by what Palast has uncovered you have no heart.â€ – Chris Hedges
“â€¦a wild and woolly ride, peppered with moments of wry sardonic humor that would make Dashiell Hammett smile. Thereâ€™s so much more Iâ€™d love to tell you about what Palast dug up. But then Iâ€™d have to kill you. So youâ€™ll just have to see The Best Democracy Money Can Buy for yourself.â€ – Salon.com
About The best democracy money can buy
1.1 million people of color vanish from the voter rolls and Rolling Stone investigative reporter Greg Palast goes on the hunt to find the missing voters, the scheming operatives behind the election heist, and the billionaires bankrolling the vote suppression game.
Based on the latest update of his smash New York Times bestseller, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy. This special edition of the film commissioned by the Goodman Foundation and Operation Rainbow/PUSH entertains as it informs, with cameos by Rosario Dawson, Willie Nelson, and Law & Order’s Ice-T and Richard Belzer. The film also features dynamic animation by Keith Tucker, the creator of Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
At the center of the scheme is Donald Trumpâ€™s voter-suppressor-in-chief, Kris Kobach, whose secretive â€œInterstate Crosscheckâ€ system has tagged 7.2 million Americans as suspected fraudulent double voters. Undercover, Palast gets his hands on the secret lists â€” overwhelmingly voters of color â€” and confronts Kobach. Palast then hunts down the missing votes in Ohio and Michigan â€” where he uncovers the stone-cold evidence that Trumpâ€™s â€œvictoryâ€ came down to voters vanished and ballots never counted.
“No other journalist has told our story, the story of how they took away our votes from Florida to Ohio to the suppression of a million votes in 2016.” â€“ Rev. Jesse Jackson
