27. Massive Republican vote suppression program is already in place....

The investigative journalist Greg Palast - who exposed Jeb Bush and Katherine Harris's so called 'felon' purge of 58,000 innocent African American voters from the voting rolls in Florida in 2000 - has been working to uncover a sinister computer program that the Republican party is using in 27 states to remove millions of innocent registered voters from the voting rolls in time for this November's election.

It's called the 'Interstate Crosscheck Program'. It targets people who have the same surnames as people in other states and it designates them as suspected felons who it decides have voted twice in elections (falsely saying they voted once in one state and again in a different state in the same election). It targets African Americans, Hispanics and American Asian people many more times than others because these people share a very large number of the same surnames. The program produces a staggering number of false positive matches which are likely to result in mostly Democrat voters being removed from the voter rolls.
Palast says the number of innocent voters who may be removed from the voter rolls is approximately 7.2 million.


The states that are running this voter purge computer program are:
Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts,
Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania,
South Dakota, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia. (And I have heard that now Montana is too).
