A federal judge has enjoined Indiana from purging voters just because they are on Kris Kobach’s Crosscheck list. The winning suit was brought by Common Cause. Their complaint extensively cited the work of the Palast Investigations Fund. This means Crosscheck is wounded, but ...more
Kris Kobach has brought a new weapon to his hunt for the chimerical Fraudulent Voter: A flag-covered military jeep with a mounted 50-caliber machine gun — a toy one. It’s a fitting symbol for Kobach, whose hunt for Trump's claimed 3 million fraudulent voters has only shot blanks. Kobach, once thought the obvious successor to ...more
As soon as I heard Trump was adding the question about whether you have a non-citizen in your household to the census I smelled Kobach. He'd already suggested it in a secret memo that we caught a glimpse of during during a meeting in November, 2016 with ...more
To mark the occasion, Mark Karlin, the editor of BuzzFlash at Truthout, poses six questions to Palast. ...more
You're more likely to be hit by lightning than commit voter fraud, but they're using the myth of double voters to eliminate real voters — who are almost always voters of color. However, they can't ...more
Donald Trump may have halted Kris Kobach’s so-called Presidential Advisory Commission on “Election Integrity” — but he hasn’t stopped its work. Far from it, he has put its nefarious ...more
Progressives are always looking for a "victory," a pony hiding in the horseshit. We saw this when most states claimed to reject Kris Kobach’s request to turn over their voter rolls. In fact, governors were lying (Mississippi and Louisiana) or too ignorant (Virginia) to ...more
Trump Is Not Ending Kobach’s Racist Voter Purge SchemeHe’s Putting It On Steroids By Moving It To Homeland Security
Don’t be fooled by news of Trump's Executive Order dissolving the so-called Commission on Election Integrity. Trump is not ending the Kris Kobach scheme to attack, he’s moving it into ...more
Imagine a wonderful parting gift from Gov. Terry McAuliffe. Imagine if Gov. McAuliffe put an end to Virginia’s strange and inexplicable participation in a GOP voter suppression trick that reeks of Jim Crow.
Since 2013, this stealth voter purge program has cost ...more
The massive success of our film, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy — which was first released two months BEFORE the 2016 election and predicted Trump would win (and how!) — has led to demands from NAACP, ACLU, Transformative Justice Coalition for an update. This post-election edition is subtitled: The Case of the Stolen Election.
Do I have to set my hat on fire to get America’s attention?
DID ANYONE LISTEN? YOU did — but the Dummycrats and the pin-head media already bought their party dress for Hillary’s inauguration.
So I’m trying again:
Today, this moment, I’m releasing the new Trump-Stole-It update of our hit film. DOWNLOAD IT HERE NOW
I was going to sub-title it: “This time, pay attention!” But instead, the new subtitle is: The Case of the Stolen Election.
It will be released commercially next year. But you can get it right now — here, and only here, for a tax-deductible donation to the Palast Investigative Fund.
Warning: If you get “Best Democracy” on Amazon or iTunes, you’re getting the OLD version.
The NEW edition tells you exactly how Trump pulled off the heist. Follow me as I hunt for 75,355 missing ballots in the snows of Michigan. And as I find the voters from Ohio to Arizona who were shafted out of their vote. Voters of color — Hispanic, Asian-American, Black — and all “Blue.”
Crosscheck Overwhelmingly Purges Legitimate Voters, New Study Finds
Researchers From Stanford, Harvard, Yale, Penn, and Microsoft Independently Corroborate
Hall-Trump-elujah! Profs finally back up what I’ve been screaming for years. The Kobach-Trump Crosscheck program is the Alt-Right Godzilla of voter suppression.
“We find that one of Crosscheck’s proposed purging strategies would eliminate about 300 registrations used to cast a seemingly legitimate vote for every one registration used to cast a double vote.”
And even that 1 in 300, say the profs from Stanford, Harvard, Penn, Yale and Microsoft, is probably just clerical error. …more
