How Brian Kemp Illegally STOLE The Georgia ElectionCenk Uygur talks to Palast on The Young Turks' Rebel HQ
Brian Kemp purged half a million voters in 2017 ahead of his race for the governor's office against the Democratic Party's candidate, Stacey Abrams. He said they left the state. (There must have been moving vans everywhere!) Our experts went through the list name by name and found at least 340,134 voters had never moved. You’re talking a third of a million voters who were canned — with no notice.

Georgia state Senator Nikema Williams didn't plan on being arrested last week. She certainly didn't think she'd be zip-tied by cops and asked to submit to a strip search. But that's what happened when she was in the Georgia State Capitol witnessing a 'Count Every Vote' protest on Tuesday, November 13, 2018.
"It was horrific experience," Williams told our reporter, Zach D. Roberts, the day after her arrest. "They patted me down, like worse than you would get at a TSA pre-check, but then she told me to lift up my dress so they could make sure that I was not carrying something in my vaginal cavity. I am a sitting state senator, that you brought off the rotunda of the capital, and you’re searching me and wanting me to take my dress off to strip search me. And then they wanted me to ...more
