When we first reported that handing a slice of pizza to a voter waiting three hours in a line is now a felony in Georgia, other media ate it up (forgive me my puns). But there are greater horrors than pizza prohibition hidden in the 95 pages of Georgia’s new… READ MORE

Georgia tries to Block New Voters ahead of RunoffProposed new registration rule would require car registered in state.
Georgia’s Board of Elections is trying to sneak through a new rule that could block new registrations before the Senate runoff to people who don’t have a car registered in the state. This knocks out students, lower income urban voters (i.e. Black Atlantans) without … READ MORE
[November 19th, 2020, Atlanta, GA] The fight over what’s left of the soul of the Republican Party has moved from Washington DC to Georgia with the far right continuing to rally for Trump.
When I first drove by the rally, a Christian white nationalist and anti-immigrant named… READ MORE
The Republicans are panicked. Despite wrongly purging nearly 200,000 young, low-income, and voters of color in an attempt to fix the election (as exposed by us), Georgia Republicans lost the state for Trump, and now they could lose control of the US Senate.
“It is unfortunate that the ACLU hired [Greg Palast] a known Stacey Abrams shill.” So said the flak for the GOP Sec. of State of Georgia. And I’m sure that GOP Senator David Perdue thinks it “unfortunate” as well – now that their program to systematically purge Black voters in Georgia was busted, and David Perdue must face … READ MORE
Two years ago, the Supreme Court’s right-wing five authorized a new method of “cleaning” voter rolls. The Court agreed with GOP voting officials, beginning with Ohio and Georgia, to purge voter rolls of those who “moved.”
The idea sounds fair in theory: If you don’t live in Atlanta, you shouldn’t vote there, and to do so is a felony crime. But in practice,… READ MORE
Hundreds of thousands of voters have been struck from the voter rolls and they have no idea. There’s no question that this attack on the voter rolls is affecting voters of color and young people. Asian Americans, African Americans, Hispanic voters are being removed by the hundreds of thousands from the voter rolls of America. And this could absolutely change the outcome of … READ MORE

LaTosha Brown: They’re constantly skimming votesPalast in conversation with the co-founder of Black Voters Matter
“We’re seeing the same old problems that our community has seen in the past, which we know are all forms of voter suppression,” laments Black Voters Matter co-founder LaTosha Brown. “We’ve got to hold people accountable… And there’s some people that… READ MORE
When the only way you can win is by depriving people of their vote, long lines are a feature, not a bug of GOP election strategy. It’s no coincidence that the worst lines tend to be in young, poor and minority neighborhoods — in others words places where people tend to… READ MORE
They don’t steal votes to steal elections. They steal votes to steal the money. If you can steal an election, you’ve stolen the keys to the treasury — our treasury. In this conversation, award-winning investigative reporters and authors Greg Palast and David Cay Johnston follow the (stolen) money, and expose the billionaires and ballot bandits who are systematically stripping the United States of its assets, just as a vulture fund would with a corporate entity caught in its talons.
Trump & Co are stealing the election right now, but we can steal it back. We can beat the ballot bandits. Watch this video of my conversation with constitutional expert and broadcaster Thom Hartmann — then pre-order my new book, How Trump Stole 2020, to find out how!
When Donald Trump thinks you’re Looney Tunes, time to get professional help, Mr. Kemp.

A federal judge has rejected Georgia officials’ arguments in an election-related lawsuit and ruled that information being sought by a journalist and an activist is subject to public disclosure.
[Atlanta-Feb 9] In an extraordinary and unexpected move, Federal Judge Eleanor Ross has declared Gov. Brian Kemp the loser in a lawsuit brought by investigative journalist Greg Palast for the State of Georgia to open up its complete files on the mass
The 2018 Gubernatorial election in Georgia became ground-zero for Republican-led vote suppression when then Secretary of State Brian Kemp ran against Democrat Stacey Abrams. As State Secretary, Kemp had unique access to the state’s voting systems in the same election in which he ran for higher office. Now, a lawsuit filed by investigative reporter Greg Palast
The Election Crimes Bulletin returns for another season. In this edition, we go to Iowa, Milwaukee and Wisconsin to report on election fraud. But first Palast reveals some huge breaking news out of Georgia
