PALAST:The Election was Stolen Here's How

Palast caught Republicans doing this in 2000. You would think as soon as Democrat's got control of the Justice Department back, this might have been on the agenda of things to fix.

How can Republicans do this stuff with impunity again and again, and Democrats don't even seem to care?


Before a single vote was cast, the election was fixed by GOP and Trump operatives.

Starting in 2013 – just as the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act – a coterie of Trump operatives, under the direction of Kris Kobach, Kansas Secretary of State, created a system to purge 1.1 million Americans of color from the voter rolls of GOP–controlled states.

The system, called Crosscheck, is detailed in my Rolling Stone report,
“The GOP’s Stealth War on Voters,” 8/24/2016.

Crosscheck in action:
Trump victory margin in Michigan: 13,107
Michigan Crosscheck purge list: 449,922

Trump victory margin in Arizona: 85,257
Arizona Crosscheck purge list: 270,824

Trump victory margin in North Carolina: 177,008
North Carolina Crosscheck purge list: 589,393

Why did Democrats do nothing about CROSSCHECK and other voter suppression efforts?

This was well documented well ahead of the election, and not only that, a similar effort with the felon voter purge in Florida in 2000 cut 100 times more voters from the rolls than Bush's margin of victory there.

Likewise, they seem to have completely ignored how easily electronic voting machines can be manipulated (more likely by GOP plumbers and ratfuckers than Russkies).

Does any have the inside scoop on how this can happen for at least two decades?
