#Trump was not elected president because he did not win the electoral vote via @RealTimBlack #TimBlackShow #Resist
#Trump used the same trick as George W did in Florida. By removing voters of color in 28 states, Trump supposedly won the electoral college.
#Trump is not our legitimate president, rather he's the Commander-in-Thief! via @RealTimBlack #TimBlackShow #Resist
#Trump stole the election using the most racist, #JimCrow, ugly tactics you can imagine & no one stood in the way! palastinvestigativefund.org/trumpstoleit
To find out how #KKKobach helped #Trump steal the election w/ his racist #Crosscheck vote purging op, watch my film thebestdemocracymoneycanbuy.com/dvd-streaming/
#Georgia recently removed 591,500 voters from its voter rolls & no one raised a peep! myajc.com/news/state--re… #Crosscheck #VoterSuppression
In addition to this year's purge, #Georgia "removed almost 732,800 voters in its previous round of rolls cleanup between 2014 and 2016."
That's how #KarenHandel won the #GA06 special election—as Secretary of State she & her successor Brian Kemp (R) whitewashed GA voter rolls.
When I asked #KarenHandel about the GOP #JimCrow tactics I’d uncovered, things got real ugly gregpalast.com/democracy-now-…
The #GA06 election & the presidential election was stolen by #JimCrow. We've got to blow the whistle on that & get this info out—so plz RT!!
Right now, 28 states are participating in #KKKobach's racist #Crosscheck voter purging op gregpalast.com/wp-content/upl… #Resist #VoterSuppression
It was more. Washington state pulled out, as did Oregon & New York. Even #Florida pulled out because of the heat #Crosscheck might attract.
And Pennsylvania, which had toyed with joining #Crosscheck, decided not to after the @ACLU asked some key questions. vimeo.com/180376253
But we have a Democratic Governor, @TerryMcAuliffe, that has allowed #Crosscheck to continue to remove voters from rolls in #Virginia!?!
#Virginia has a Democratic Governor AND a Democratic Board of Elections—why the heck are they still in this GOP, #JimCrow voter purging op?
That's why we're holding a #VotingRightsProject event in #Virginia on Sept 9. Join us -> facebook.com/events/9865875… #StopCrossCheck #Resist
This is NOT a partisan issue, it's about #VotingRights and voting wrongs. We've got to #StopCrossCheck and the new #JimCrow. #Resist
#KKKobach is trying to force every state to join #Crosscheck using his appointment to #Trump's so-called "Election Integrity" Commission.
...Or have every state turn over their voter rolls so he can add those names into the #Crosscheck database. gregpalast.com/republican-sta… #Resist
So if, for example, California turns over its voter rolls to #KKKobach, they'll use those names to kick more people off in other states.
If that happens, many more people sharing names like García, López, Sánchez and Hernandez will fall victim to #Crosscheck across the US.
This is a REAL #Crosscheck "match" BTW. Maria Isabel Hernandez (GA) is supposed to be the same person as Maria Christina Hernandez (LA)?!?
The so-called "Double Voters" #Crosscheck finds are merely legal voters with similar names — who statistically are more likely to be POC.
For more on how and why minority names are overrepresented in #Crosscheck lists, read my report for @ajam projects.aljazeera.com/2014/double-vo… #Resist
The reason #Trump is our so-called President is because of #JimCrow tactics like #Crosscheck—and the #Democrats damn dead silence.
In fact, @HillaryClinton said no American president has ever challenged the vote. Well, what about @AlGore in 2000?
#JImCrow tactics like #Crosscheck have got to end NOW! And we can't count on the politicians. We count on YOU!!!
I hope #Virginia Gov. @TerryMcAuliffe can make it to our Sept 9 #VotingRightsProject event & commit to pulling out of #KKKobach's Crosscheck

My lawyer had to threaten #Georgia Secretary of State #BrianKemp with a lawsuit to force him to turn over the names of over half a million voters whose citizenship rights he quietly extinguished. gregpalast.com/gops-brian-kem…
My database expert went through #BrianKemp's #Georgia Purge List name by name and found:

1 Thousands who supposedly left the state but remain in Georgia
2 Thousands who moved from one end of town to another
3 Someone who moved from one apartment to another in the same building
#GeorgiaPurgeList: 108,000 of the names were on #KrisKobach's notorious #InterstateCrosscheck list — and only 2,000 of these purged #Crosscheck voters have left the state! gregpalast.com/gops-brian-kem…

There’s voter registration deadlines TODAY in 18 states:

AZ, AK, FL, GA, HI*, IL*, IN, KY, LA*, MI, MS, NV*, NM, OH, PA, TN, TX, UT*

If you haven’t checked your registration yet, do so NOW at vote.org

*For more on deadlines visit: nytimes.com/2018/10/06/us/…
Don’t assume you’re OK because you’ve not moved and have voted in the same place for years. States have been conducting deep purges, and many perfectly valid voter registrations have disappeared — often without notice. rollingstone.com/politics/polit…
For example, in #Georgia in 2017, GOP Secretary of State #BrianKemp removed 591,000 voters from the rolls—that’s 1 in 10 registrations in a single year!

If you live in Georgia you can find out if you’ve been purged here:

Rather than face me in court, #Georgia Secretary of State #BrianKemp coughed up the first and last names and addresses of every one of the 591,000 voters he purged from the rolls in 2017. Notably, however, he left out the voter’s middle names. How curious. gregpalast.com/why-i-am-suing…
#BrianKemp also refused — despite the requirements of transparency in the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 — to state in detail WHY he’s purged each of the monstrously large number of #Georgia voters. gregpalast.com/why-i-am-suing… #StopTheSteal
Therefore, I have come to Atlanta to join with co-plaintiffs from @RPCoalition, @NationalSCLC, @GAPeoplesAgenda & @NewGAProject to give #BrianKemp a final warning: Put these purged voters back before the election or see us in federal court. gregpalast.com/georgia-civil-… #StopTheSteal

#Florida study finds "mail ballots were 10 times more likely to be rejected than votes cast at early #voting sites or on #election day" and "ballots cast by youngest voters, blacks and Hispanics were much more likely to be rejected."

DON'T GO POSTAL!!!

miamiherald.com/news/politics-…
Around a third of Americans mail in their ballot — boy is that dangerous. There’s a million ways to not count your mail-in ballot. gregpalast.com/have-you-check…
DON'T GO POSTAL—OR I'LL BE TEMPTED TO GO POSTAL ON YOU!!!
#Florida #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud #Election2018
STUDY: "Younger and racial and ethnic minority voters casting Vote By Mail ballots were at least twice as likely as older and white voters to have their VBM ballot rejected in the presidential elections of 2012 and 2016." aclufl.org/en/publication…

We have a massive non-count of votes in America. Over one million ballots nationwide — in any election — are never counted. They are disqualified for cockamamie technical reasons. gregpalast.com/have-you-check…
I’m not talking about some guy with machines changing a vote from Democrat to Republican on a computer. I’m talking about if you mail in your ballot, they can challenge it and toss it. gregpalast.com/have-you-check… #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud #StopTheSteal
People worry about getting their vote stolen by a machine, so they mail it in. But you just went double or nothing with your vote, because that makes it easier for them. The number one way #KrisKobach won the #KansasPrimary was by disqualifying ballots that were mailed in.
