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’s team of experts has determined that the purge list is overwhelmingly …more
ACLU v Kobach trial ends with Trump’s vote “sheriff” confessing via deposition of scheme given to Trump to block new voters nationwide.
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach blocked ONE IN SEVEN Kansans from registering to vote because they could not provide passports or certified birth certificates. Almost all those blocked were new young voters and older poor voters — i.e. Democrats.
Kobach could not identify a single one of these as a non-citizen.
This blockade of mostly Democratic voters is justified by Kobach’s (and Donald Trump’s) claim that the number of non-citizen voters he found (5 over twenty years out of a BILLION ballots cast), is just the “tip of the iceberg.”
Dale Ho of the ACLU ended his closing argument: “The iceberg, on close inspection, your honor, is more of an ice cube.” …more

The Vote Rustler of the Week: Kris Kobach, Trump’s man behind SB 1070, the “Driving While Brown” law.
Dennis Bernstein: Welcome to our weekly Election Protection Bulletin with best-selling author Greg Palast. Let’s start in Topeka, Kansas with its Secretary of State Kris Kobach. He’s definitely going head to head with the ACLU there.
Greg Palast: Kris Kobach is the most influential Republican Secretary of State in America – the Katherine Harris of 2016.
He’s one of the very first governmental Republican supporters of Donald Trump. Anne Coulter has said Trump should pick him as his running mate. This guy is an important cat.
What’s he up to? He’s “saving” America from an invasion of aliens – not from outer space, but from other nations, wading the Rio Grande to vote in American elections. He claims there is a mass incursion of illegal aliens coming to the US to vote for Hillary.
