…after six years of investigating Kris Kobach’s Interstate Crosscheck voter purge program, the entire racially biased, violently partisan vote suppression tactic is on the verge of collapse.
Ten states in total have now withdrawn from the Interstate Crosscheck system, including in the past few weeks, Arizona, Colorado, Pennsylvania and in alliance with my co-litigant, Rev. Jesse Jackson, the state of Illinois.
And Kansas, after Kobach lost his race for Governor, has stopped creating the purge list for Crosscheck states.
Unfortunately, nearly a score of states still use Crosscheck. Worse, even those states which left Crosscheck continue to purge hundreds of thousands of voters who found themselves on Kobach’s lists in 2013 through 2017.
So, the Palast Investigative Fund continues litigation in those states – a massive legal, statistical and investigative process which, frankly, is not cheap.

But it all pays off. The State of Georgia continues to turn over files of the half million voters purged before the 2018 mid-term elections to settle the federal law suit brought by the Palast Fund and Helen Butler of the Georgia Coalition for the Peoples Agenda. Our goal, restore the rights of 340,134 Georgians wrongly removed from the rolls in time for the 2020 election.
