TRUMP SWEPT INTO POWER BY DUSTING OFF THE VOTES OF 1.1 MILLION AFRICAN AMERICANS, LATINOS, AND ASIAN AMERICAN VOTERS- and we're fighting mad.
Without a shadow of a doubt- Kris Kobach's Crosscheck would - AND DID - steal the 2016 election. It's the great untold story. Yes, there was collusion- for instance Michigan's Secretary of State admitted they purged "aggressively" - about 50,000 voters in a state Trump won by 10,700. Same sad story in Pennsylvania, Illinois and elsewhere.
They'll use it again in 2018. Talk about Russians all you want, but if we don't stop the purge of 30,000-60,000 voters in each of 28 states, the 2018 mid-term will be lost - and democracy will become a distant memory. You can't have a democracy with a government that has no integrity. Palast has put in four years of intensive, hard-core investigative reporting to uncover their game.
Update. Greg Palast filed (along with the ACLU and Rev. Jesse Jackson) Freedom of Information requests in every Crosscheck state to get the names of the voter victims of Crosscheck - the purged...and in the lawsuits that are sure to follow the stone-wall refusal of the GOP Secretaries of State. This film is robustly entertaining, particularly in the cameos by Shailene Woodley, Willie Nelson, Rosario Dawson, and Ice-T). The film ends with an emotional kick that gets folks motivated.
$15 advance, $18 door.
