March 6 â€“ Catch Greg Palast on the Thom Hartmann show, 1pm ET (10am PT) Wednesday. Palast will report on the trial of the ACLU and League of Women Voters versus Kris Kobach, Secretary of State of Kansas, whichÂ began today.
Kris Kobach claims that MILLIONS of aliens voted in the last election.Â To stop the Alien Invasion, Kobach, Kansas Secretary of State, wrote and passed a law in the state requiring proof of citizenship to vote.Â The effect: to knock out one in seven new voters â€” 22,000 so far â€” not because they come from another planet or nation, but because they donâ€™t have a passport or original birth certificate to prove theyâ€™re citizens.
The lawsuit against Kobach was brought by the ACLU on behalf of the League of Women Voters and five Kansans â€” including two Air Force vets â€” who were denied the right to vote because they did not have proof of citizenshipÂ on hand.Â One of the plaintiffs testified today that she could not afford the $50 to $60 to obtain her out-of-state birth certificate.
Itâ€™s all vicious politics: Most of the Kansans who lost their right to vote are students, first time voters. Nope:Â a driverâ€™s license or social security card is NOT proof of citizenship.Â Of the millions of votes cast in Kansas since Kobach began his alien hunt, heâ€™s found only one single non-citizen voter â€” while knocking out tens of thousands of innocent Americans.Â The majority are students and those without passports (not the rich!)â€¦i.e. Democrats.
The Palast investigations team has been on Kobach and his fraudulent vote hunting scam since 2013 â€” long before he became Donald Trumpâ€™s official vote fraud hunter. Here is a clip from our film, out this week on Amazon â€” FREE on Prime!
