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.

In 2004, BBC TV exposed Brett Doster, now Judge Roy Moore’s campaign chief, for illegally “caging” Black, Hispanic, and Jewish voters, a crime explained by Bobby Kennedy, Jr. in our film, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.
The Palast team got our hands on highly confidential documents from inside the George W. Bush campaign giving “BDoster@GeorgeWBush.org,” their Florida chief, one of several secret lists of voters to challenge.
They’d sent letters, for example, to soldiers at their home addresses, where they were legally registered, while they served overseas. When the letters came back to the RNC as “addressee not home,” the “caged” letters were used Read more
