I’m suing Trump’s “Purge’n General” Kris Kobach. Rev. Jesse Jackson is joining me. Will you?

On the basis of Kobach’s phony accused “fraudulent voter” list, 27 states, almost all GOP-controlled, have already removed 1,067,046 voters – not counting Brian Kemp’s latest purge-frenzy.
Details of our Lawsuit
With the pro bono help of the firm of Mirer Mazzocchi Julien, we are filing under the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 to get the names of every one of the million voters purged from voter rolls using Kobach’s infamous “Interstate Crosscheck” program, the one our team uncovered for Rolling Stone and similar Kobach-ian tricks.
And we’ve sent legal notices to all 27 states in Kobach’s Crosscheck program to turn over their secret lists. While Kobach has stonewalled us, a number of states including Michigan and Oklahoma, have turned over their hit lists rather than face us in a federal court.
Next it’s on to Atlanta, Georgia where I will personally serve Secretary of State Brian Kemp with the federal suit. Kemp, like Kobach, has refused our demand for the names of those he’s purged. And when Brian purges, he doesn’t mess around: blacking out 591,000 voters in the latest election cycle.
And we know why: Republican Kemp is running against Democrat Stacey Abrams, America’s first Black female candidate for Governor. Kemp apparently fears he can’t win unless he bleaches the voter rolls whiter than white. We will get the names of the purged (we’ve already gotten our hands on his target list) and notify as many as possible to restore their rights.
Kemp either coughs up the names of his victims, or he’ll see me in court where I will be joined by my co-plaintiff, voting rights advocate Helen Butler of the Georgia Coalition for a Peoples Agenda.
