ONE out of FIVE voters in Colorado being PURGED from the voter list!!!


This weekend on Ring of Fire Radio, RFK Jr. and Greg Palast discussed the voter purge that is happening in various states, especially in Colorado, where 1 out of 5 eligible voters are being purged by a Republican Secretary of State (ala Blackwell Ohio 2004).

For convience I clipped the segment out of the show and posted it on my website where you can listen here:

(see the first entry in the table)

there is also an article about this in a Colorado publication:

3. This race will be stolen
if there isn't a major action taken. The Court will rule in favor of the Repubs.

5. No purge in voter list within 90days of election re: Federal Law
Have the Dems taken legal action yet to stop this?

7. no they haven't
the loophole is that they don't necessarily get purged by the state. but the list of people gets handed over to the Republican party and then on election day they use the list to challenge voters when they show up to vote.
