Voting Gangnam Style: The Rise of Kim Crow

[link:https://www.gregpalast.com/|]

Helen grew concerned. The names sheíd gathered were not being added to Georgia voter rolls. When she called KempĎs office, she was told there were no such registrations, the registration forms didnít exist.

But, Helen responded, she had copies of the forms. That was a mistake. According to Brian Kemp, itís illegal to copy a voter registration form. But, if copying forms is barred, how can you prove someone tried to register? You canít. And thatís the whole point.

When a government acts to prevent voters from registering, thatís a federal crime. A go-to-jail crime. But in Georgia, and too many other states, itís the victims who face arrest and prison.

3. It's the same in Florida

Asians are discriminated against by the elections officials here. Various games are played. Sometimes the ballot is ignored or rejected because of game playing on Asian names and how they are recorded. This election, my feeling is that if a registered voter had an Asian name, they simply weren't sent a ballot.
