Whose Stealing Our Elections & How the Republicans are Doing it in Georgia!
Greg Palast, veteran election investigator who has continued to uncover the sickening truth of widespread systemic election rigging, robbing African-American, Hispanic and Asian American voters of their right to vote in crucial states. Palast is known for complex undercover investigations, spanning five continents, from the Arctic to the Amazon, from Caracas to California, using the skills he learned over two decades as a top investigator of corporate fraud. Palast is the author of several New York Times bestsellers, Billionaires & Ballot Bandits The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, Vultures' Picnic and Armed Madhouse.
Stacey Abrams, Georgiaâs Gubernatorial candidate, should not concede the election which was almost certainly stolen by a
candidate who supervised his own election, Republican Brian Kemp
Georgia Republican Brian Kemp, according to the latest numbers, is clinging just above the 50 percent mark required to avoid a run-off with Democratic opponent Stacey Abrams. Kemp, until Thursday, was Georgiaâs Secretary of State in charge of voting â and in charge of âmaintainingâ the voter rolls to make them more accurate. But he used that power to cancel more than half a million Georgian voter registrations without notice. While Kemp, has declared victory in his heated gubernatorial race Democratic opponent Stacey Abrams is not conceding.
Federal law doesnât mean a whole lot to Kemp. The GOP candidate aired commercials in which he drawled, âIâm so conservative I blow up government regulationsâ â followed by dynamite exploding in the background. Kemp blew up a second federal law, the Help America Vote Act (HAVA). As one woman, Bakhtiari said, âNot only could I not vote, but they didnât even let me do the provisional ballot.â Provisional ballots are required by HAVA specifically to allow voters wrongly purged to cast a ballot so the voter or candidates like Abrams can fight to have it counted by county officials or by court order. Of course, Kemp had already ruled that counties cannot tally the ballots of voters he purged, no matter whether he purged them rightly or wrongly. Abramsâ legal team is fighting to count every ballot, including the piles of absentee ballots rejected under Kempâs rules â and those provisionals â to force Kemp into a run-off.
