Behind The Black Vote Drop:
Jim Crow in Cyberspace
Greg Palast with Joy Reid on MSNBC

 

Reports claim black voter turnout fell [1] for first time in 20 years. But it’s not that black voters are too lazy to come out to vote, it’s that they’re trying to vote and their names have disappeared from voter rolls.

We estimate that before the last election, 1.1 million voters were removed from voter rolls [2] in sates where Crosscheck [3] was being used. Crosscheck is the flawed-by-design, racist vote purging system instigated by Trump’s Vote Suppressor in Chief, Kris Kobach, who this past week was appointed as the Vice Chair of the Presidential Commission for Election Integrity — see story [4].

The intent is clear: The GOP are using the fake claims about millions of illegal alien and double voters as an excuse to take Crosscheck nationwide so they can whitewash voter rolls before 2018 and 2020.
