Billionaires & Ballot Bandits

Join Congressman Alcee Hastings,
voting rights attorney Santiago Juarez, Code Pink’s Medea Benjamin
and thousands more in fighting the new Jim Crow.

His name is now Dr. James Crow, systems analyst – but he’s just as dangerous to your vote.

Over the last year, for Rolling Stone, I’ve been investigating the newest way that the GOP is trying to steal the vote. In the newly released investigation I detail just how Donald Trump’s border-wall planner created the voter suppression program, “Interstate Crosscheck.”

Just give me 4 minutes – and WATCH how the New Jim Crow secretly works:

This GOP computer program has wrongly placed 7.2 MILLION voters on a list of those suspected as voting twice, a felony crime. The suspect list of potential criminals contains an astonishing ONE IN SEVEN voters of color in the 29 Crosscheck states.

While partisan officials have kept the list confidential, the Palast team obtained names of over one million of the accused.

The ONLY evidence they have that you voted or registered in two states is that you share a first name and last name with another voter. A typical example: Maria ISABEL Hernandez of Virginia is supposedly the same voter as Maria CRISTINA Hernandez of Louisiana.

Tens of thousands of voters have already been purged in a single state. As many as one million will lose their right to vote by this November.

Experts have stated the Crosscheck system, directed for 29 states by the highly partisan Secretary of State of Kansas, is “dangerously biased against minorities.” As the great civil rights leader Rev. Joseph Lowery said of Crosscheck, “This is Jim Crow all over again.”

Click here to sign the petition to the US Department of Justice to force these states to divulge their Crosscheck blacklists — and STOP THE PURGE NOW.

For the full story of the investigation….
The Billionaires Behind the Ballot Burglary

The Crosscheck investigation is at the heart of my new film, premiering this month:
The Best Democracy Money Can Buy—A Tale of Billionaires & Ballot Bandits.

We need 50 organizations or awesome individuals from around the country to sponsor — at zero cost to your group — a screening at a local theater.  Our distributor will provide the theater for you at no cost.   We just need you to make your best effort fill the seats. E-mail my co-producer Zach Roberts at zach (at) gregpalast(dot)com for details.

Palast filmed his two years of sleuthing for the Rolling Stone investigation. But that’s just a fragment of the detective story in his new film.

With his sidekick Leni Badpenny, Palast hunts and confronts the billionaires behind these racist ballot burglaries:  the Kochs (like you’ve never seen them), plus GOP top donor “The Vulture,” and Trump’s billionaire, JP the Foreclosure King.

A small donation gets you tickets for the limited preview showings in:
     Madison – Sept 15 – 7pm
     Sarasota – Sept 24 – 2pm & 7pm
And to be scheduled: LA, New York, Portland, Houston, Denver, Albuquerque and more—and the grand red-carpet premiere in Hollywood. If you’d like to bring the film to YOUR hometown – e-mail zach (at) gregpalast(dot)com and he’ll send you information how we can make it happen.
 
A personal note from Greg
The film is complete, but we need to get the word out NOW.  And that takes your support.

Make a tax-deductible contribution of $50 to our education and outreach program, and you’ll get a signed copy of the updated smash bestselling book, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy:  a Tale of Billionaires & Ballot Bandits with the latest investigative material on the scheme to steal 2016.  And inside book, a 44-page comic by gonzo cartoonist Ted Rall.

Or, get the signed DVD of the documentary movie The Best Democracy Money Can Buy:  A Tale of Billionaires & Ballot Bandits for a $50 donation.

Or better still get the signed Book & DVD package for a donation of $80.

We truly need your help now.  It would be a tragedy to make a film which blows the whistle on the theft of the election (especially those tight Senate races) but not have enough support so our whistle can be heard.

I’m asking you with an urgency you don’t usually hear from me—I truly need your support and need itNOW.
