Greg Palast, joined by ACLU of Kansas, launches nationwide legal attack on Trump’s claim that millions of people have voted twice illegally.
Palast is the Rolling Stone journalist who broke the original story that thousands of voters in 29 states lost their right to vote because of Trump’s phony double voter claim.
Palast is the only US journalist with the names of more than 1,000,000 of the accused voters – obtained in a years long investigation for Al Jazeera and Rolling Stone, an investigation which won the prestigious Global Editors award.
Palast is working alongside the ACLU of Kansas because the “double-vote” list was created by Trump “vote fraud czar” Kris Kobach as part of his “Interstate Crosscheck” program. Used by 29 states, almost all GOP controlled, voting officials have secretively challenged and purged thousands of voters from voter rolls in Ohio, Michigan, Arizona, Oklahoma and other states.
Palast’s team of experts has determined that the purge list is overwhelmingly Read 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 steal all the votes all the time. It’s really important to understand that. Read 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’s put its nefarious vote-stealing activities on steroids.
On January 3, shortly after Trump issued his Executive Order dissolving the Commission in the same way it was created, by the stroke of a pen, Kobach told Briebart that the Commission’s mission wasn’t over, rather it was being “handed off” to the Department of Homeland Security.
Far from being a victory for progressives, as most of the liberal lamestream media portrayed the Commission’s demise, this was a brilliant chess move by Kobach. Now Kobach hopes to operate his racist voter purging program away from the glaring spotlight of the Commission, under the special veil of secrecy afforded to the DHS. Worse still, the program is now backed by Homeland Security’s police and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) powers. Read 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 their voter rolls.

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 Homeland Security as per Kobach’s original plan. Read more
