Georgia’s Original Sin and the 2022 Secret Vote-Crushing Scheme:
My Most Important Investigation Ever

280 years ago, two Georgia dynasties, the forebears of Governor Brian Kemp and (defeated) Senator David Perdue, overcame Georgia’s prohibition of slavery and convinced King George to grant them powers to bring Africans in chains to establish the plantation system.

Georgia is still a plantation state. But instead of the hanging rope, it’s lynching by laptop; though Brian Kemp has introduced much more direct means of terror, using the Georgia Bureau of investigation as a new voting KGB. I’m not exaggerating.

Just give me two minutes and watch this: a preview of our new investigation and film series for 2022.

As CNN says, “Once again, it’s all down to Georgia.“

But we knew that eight years ago. That’s when Martin Luther King III asked me to investigate, “Why isn’t Georgia ‘blue’?“

The result: two Pulitzer Prize-nominated reports – and now this film and series of print, radio and web reports that will blow open the hidden, most vicious vote suppression tactics yet.

Join us. Support us. Produce this film and reports.
Keep our investigators on voting ground zero—and keep them safe.

In Georgia in January 2020-2021, the Palast Investigative Team not only reported history, we made history. And here we go again…

We’ve only just begun.

And believe me, whatever trickery they hatch in Georgia spreads like a plague to Wisconsin, Ohio, North Carolina and Florida.

Everything is on the line. You know I rarely ask for help but now I must.
It’s not about Democrat or Republican, it’s about right and wrong.

In return for your donation I’ll be honored to list you in the screen credits of our new film!
