When Donald Trump said, "This election is rigged", he was right. Republicans helped rig it. Rolling Stone investigative reporter Greg Palast takes a deep dive into the Republicans' dark operation, Crosscheck, designed to steal a million votes in the 2016 election and beyond. Crosscheck is controlled by Republican Kris Kobach, Kansas Secretary of State who claims his computer program has identified 7.2 million people in 29 states who may have voted twice in the same election--a felony crime. The catch? Most of these "suspects" are minorities -- in other words, mainly Democratic voters. Other Republican states have used the Crosscheck list to purge voters, claiming that they are the same people registered in 2 states even when the matched voters have different middle names. Yet the lists and the evidence remain "confidential."Added to the calendar on Thursday Sep 14th, 2017 12:41 PM
